How to set/reset admin password on new printer

HP Recommended

Hi, I have exactly the same problem as described in
https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/LaserJet-Printing/How-to-reset-admin-password-for-MFP-M283fdw-printer/...

 

I bought a new printer and for some reason an admin password is that on it. I would like to avoid returning the printer to Amazon, hence it would be excellent if you could communicate the password reset method (in private, if you have to).

@rukz, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

We will have to perform an NVRAM reset on the printer to resolve this issue.

  • The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may corrupt 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.
  • In order to access your private messages, click the private message icon on the upper right corner of your HP community profile, next to your profile Name or simply click on this link: https://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/notes/privatenotespage

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
