Hp 3830 password reset

HP Recommended
Hp 3830
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I installed my new HP 3830 and everything went well, then I assigned a password to

My printer for security reasons, now the printer does not recognize my password, after few tries it locked me out saying “you session is locked try later” . I know my password is correct and the printer screen shows the password, but I can not sign in to my printer, I use “admin” for user name.

I reinstalled the software but ran into same problem, asking me the printer password.  I read on this forum that the printer has to be set to default factory setting and be reinstall  again to fix this problem, I don’t  know how to set the printer to factory default setting. By the way printer does print both in wireless and USB connection.  Any help appreciated.

Hi @foxx74

 

Welcome to the HP Forums!

 

This is a wonderful place to converse with the community, get assistance and find tips.

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to know how to reset the printer.

 

I’d love to help!

 

Follow the below steps to reset the network settings and remove the password.

 

  1. On the printer, press and hold the power button.
  2. While pressing down the power button, press the Start Copy Black button two times, and then press the Cancel button three times.
  3. Release the power button.

 

The wireless light next to the wireless button should blink. Repeat these steps if the wireless light does not blink.

 

Let me know how it goes. Awaiting your reply!

Thank you for the reply,  HP 3830 has only only one button which is power,  everything else is touch screen , I think you were thinking about a different model,  thank you again I am waiting to see if you have any other suggestion to do a factory reset.

Hi @foxx74

 

Thank you for posting back.

 

Please let me know the exact model of your printer so that I can provide you a more accurate solution.

 

Meanwhile, you can reset the password by following below steps.

 

  • Obtain the IP address of the printer – You can touch the “wireless” icon on the printer control panel to get the IP address. 
  • Type the IP address on your web browser to obtain the printer EWS page on your computer. 
  • Now go to the Security Tab - Administrative Settings.
  • Check for username and password and you can reset the password from here.

Let me know how it goes. Awaiting your reply!

I believe we are narrowing  down the problem, I followed the steps you suggested I got this eeror message,

 

"You are being redirected to a secure HTTPS-enabled version of this page.

Note: The web browser might display a message about the security certificate or connection being invalid. If so, follow the instructions to accept the certificate or connection."

 

It appears that my browse (Firefox)  refuses to estabilsh secure connection because of expired certificate issues. I used the

installation CD to setup the printer, do you think that might be the problem ? should I reinstall through HP web.
