Solved!

HP office jet 6970 pro admin password reset

HP Recommended
HP office jet 6970
macOS 10.15 Catalina

Hello

I have read the manual, specifically pages 133 - 140 about resetting the printer but the problem is that without the admin password I cannot reset the printer to default. I have tried turning it off an unplugging the printer for a minute but when I turn it back on, it still recalls the username and password (which I cannot recall). I have tried the HP SmartPrint app as well to configure the printer but I cannot seem to connect.
The problem started when I changed service providers and then had a new network and password for wifi. I could not longer get into the admin section to modify the wifi settings. As I bought the printer some time ago, I can no longer recall the password and like all good security, I did not write it down anywhere.

Please help!

Can someone from the HP technical team please message me directly with steps to reset the printer please?

Hello,

I have sent you a private message with instructions to reset the printer. Please only change the fields quoted in my private message. Afterwards I invite you to come back here.

I ask you not to republish the procedure indicated in my PM in the public community and I thank you for doing so.

I remain at your disposal in case of need.


Best regards,:Wink:
