I have an HP LaserJet Pro M118dw which I have forgotten the EWS password to.
Tried the hold X and wireless, then power on solution; however, it still asks for a factory-default password (which is on the label on the back according to the software). There is NO label on the back with a user name or password.
1) How to properly factory reset the printer such that the EWS is reset to factory default settings?
2) What is the factory default user name and password for an HP LaserJet Pro M118dw?
Do not just give instructions for resetting to default settings in the EWS. Those instructions are useless without the EWS user name and password.
No luck. Neither got me past the request for user and password from the HP Easy Start program.
I was finally able to get the printer to connect using WPS; however, when I try to sign into the EWS in the web browser, I get a password dialog window that prompts for user and password, however the text in the box indicates that only a password is necessary.
