Re: Reset EWS ,forgot username and pass

Hi @Lorditos,


Thanks for the update,

As I understand you have followed the steps and still having the issue, don't worry as I have a few other suggestions which should help to resolve your concern,


Let’s try to fix the issue by following the steps mentioned below:

  • Obtain the IP address of the printer – You can touch the “wireless” icon on the printer control panel to get the IP address.
  • Type the IP address on your web browser to obtain the printer EWS page on your computer.
  • Now go to the Security Tab - Administrative Settings.
  • Uncheck the "Control Panel Lock".

Please respond to this post with the result of your troubleshooting. I look forward to hearing from you. 


If you wish to help others looking for the same solution as you've found, mark the post as Accepted Solution.

And I Hope you have a good day, Ahead.
