Hi,

From the network menu of the printer select Clear Settings (see page 34 in its user guide).

 

The default username would be admin (all lower-case) without any password.

Yes, I know, but i set "Clear Settings" in Network settings on printer, this choice only clear WIFI settings, not clear password on EWS.

 

I connect printer only with WIFI and application HP Smart on Android. Any different situation with LAN connection ? - I tested this, any different between WIFI or LAN connection, login after "Clear settings" in network menu not work. I used login "admin" and empty password field

 

I have last firmware and i know password to EWS, but this password not work (i used login ID "admin"). I need factory reset or NVRAM clean.
