Solved!

Feature Locked - Won't Connect to New Router

HP Recommended
HP OfficeJet Pro 8600
macOS 11.0 Big Sur

I can't connect to the new WiFi router recently installed. It is on my MacBook Pro M1 with MacOS Big Sur v 11.2.2 but all of the instructions to user setup wizard or reset won't work because I continually set message: Feature Locked - The feature has been locked by your system administrator or the person who set up the printer. I set it up and am the administrator - I don't know how this happened and how to undo it. I followed all the instructions to turn off, disconnect all devices, and the router and reconnect and it did not help. I also tried to reinstall the printer driver and firmware but it also did not work because it cannot find the wireless network and I cannot get it to recognize the network because all the features are locked. How do I undo this?

Your help will be much appreciated.

@CNPMacUser, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

The only option left is to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 

 

The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may brick the device. 

I've sent you a private message with reset instructions, follow the reset instruction to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 

 

In order to access your private messages, click the private message icon on the upper right corner of your HP Community profile, next to your profile Name or simply click on this link.

 

Hope this helps!

Thank you! Thank you! It worked. I spend hours trying to figure it out before I posted to no avail. I really appreciate your help.

I didn't see the BL button after pushing it twice it disappeared but I kept pushing it as you advised and it worked.

Thanks again for your help.
