With HP Laser (Not Laserjet) Printers, how can I find the EWS Administrator password to log in to the EWS Page of the printer?
With previous firmware versions, the default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank
With the latest printer firmware, the default username remains admin (all lower case), but the password is the WPS PIN Number.
To locate the WPS PIN Number, print a Network Configuration Report and locate the PIN Number within the WPS Information section.
Here is how to print a Network Configuration Report report for the different HP Laser printer models:
An additional note based on some documentation I was able to find from HP. On some models the PIN number will be printed on a label attached to the printer.
Hi, Have you tried turning the machine off, then holding down the menu button and starting up the printer. That should reset to all default, which includes no login name or password. The default password is blank for the administrator.
I purchased a brandnew MFP 178nw on september 26 at 123inkt.nl. Never unpacked and unused (confirmed by vendor). When I register the printer, HP states that the factory warranty is now 10 months because it has been registered in july. Someone registered his printer with a typo in the serial (what became my serial no)?
