Need to reset the EWS password on a HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M283fdw

I forget the password of my MFP M283fdw. Does anyone know how to reset the EWS password please?

I need to change the network settings and cannot do it without this.

 

Thanks in advance.

Press and hold the bottom left of the touchscreen, turn the printer ON, keep the bottom left pressed you will get an initialization message on the screen, that will fully reset your printer.

Hi Valsimot,

I followed your process and went through the "Initialization".

But I am still locked with the password and that didn't reset the printer.
