HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 - EWS Admin Password Reset

HP Recommended
HP OfficeJet Pro 8710

The admin password was set for accessing our printer through the EWS but it was not saved to 1Password after it was set, and now is lost. How do we reset the EWS admin password? Thank you!

@jason527, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

In order to reset the EWS password, you'll have to perform a network reset on the printer. Here is how you do it-

 

  1. From the home screen of your printer control panel, touch the Wireless icon 

  2. Touch the Setup icon 

  3. Touch Restore Network Defaults or Restore Network Settings, and then touch Yes to confirm your selection.

  4. After the default network settings are restored, touch the back arrow, touch Wireless Settings, and then touch Wireless Setup Wizard.

    The printer searches for available networks.

  5. Touch the name of your wireless network.

  6. If your wireless network does not display in the list of wireless networks, touch Enter New Network Name, and then type the name of your wireless network.

    NOTE: 

    Type the exact network name, including any uppercase and lowercase letters.

  7. Type the WEP or WPA key (network password), and then touch Done.

    If you do not know your network password, go to Find Your Wireless WEP, WPA, WPA2 Password.

    Once the printer connects to the wireless network, the blue Wireless light on the control panel turns on solid.

Now, try accessing the printer EWS and see if that works. 

 

If you still have issues, the only option left is to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 

 

The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may brick the device. 

I've sent you a private message with reset instructions, follow the reset instruction to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer.
