reset password for system setup

Product Name: HP M277dw
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I forgot the printer password and cannot find out how to reset to factory settings (or the password itself) without entering it. How can i reset the password?

Re: reset password for system setup



A very warm welcome to the HP community. A very good day to you. 


I understand that you have an HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw and need to reset the password on it. I read that you need help to remove the password or factory reset the printer to take care of the password. Not worry, I'll do my best to help you. 


I suggest you to perform the following steps on the printer to restore the printer to factory defaults (Source: user guide)



I hope this helps. If the password does not go away then I suggest you to perform a complete reset on the printer. I have sent you a private message with the steps to reset the printer. 


I sincerely hope this fixes the issue. Let me know what happens. Cheers! :)
