How to unlock my Officejet Pro 6978 settings?

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Can't unlock the settings on my HP Officejet Pro 6978. Says locked by person who installed (me).

Looked all over the community and the only answers are PMs which were sent to specific people.

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

I understand that you want to reset the printer, I am glad to assist you.

You might have to perform a semi-full reset on the printer to fix this issue.

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

I am sending you a private message with the steps to reset the printer. Please check the mailbox icon at the top-right corner of this screen.

 

I hope this helps resolve this issue completely.

To thank me for my efforts to help you, please mark my post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

Cheers.
