HP Pagewide MFP 586 - Password reset

PageWide Color MFP 586
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

Halp! I need a guide to resetting the admin-password in my HP PageWide Color MFP 586

 

I just bought the printer, which was a returned item, from a dealer, in fact it´s quite new. BUT: Some other customer got it before me for testing and they changed the admin password - so no one knows the password anymore 😞 All other threads and videos that can be found online describe the way to the "secret" service menus with different printers. So can anyone give me a solution to reset passwords for my MFP-model?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Tim

I already tried everything that is possible without the admin-password. These solutions reset everything but the password - I need the password renewed.
