Solved!

Forgotten Password

HP Recommended
M283fdw Colour Laserjet Printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi. I've just bought this printer. I set everything up including a password, but now it won't accept the password I have written down. I've looked through other posts on here but none of the workarounds work as the problem is that every option I have tried requires the administrator password! Is there a way of resetting the password, or finding out what it is? TIA

Hi,

Make sure you type admin (all lower case) as the username, among the selected password, and check if that may work.

 

Please let me know if that helps,

Shlomi

Hi Shlomil

 

I've tried that and still won't accept. I can only assume I've written the password down incorrectly
