Admin lock-I'm the admin!!

HP Recommended
HP Officejet Pro 8620 e-All-in-One Printer
macOS 11.0 Big Sur

The printer display shows many options locked and says contact the administrator. Tried to Reset Wireless Defaults and it is locked. How can I get back control of this printer? EWS can not contact the printer wirelessly. No IP address is shown, but can not change since the admin password is asked and no password was set.
