HP Laserjet 200 color M251nw: M251nw Admin password is reset.

I discovered that someone had added a password from the administration on the printer. I need to get the printer connected to the network with anyone who knows what is the password. Thanks for any help.

Hi @Flaherty582,

I can help you reset your printer in order to clear the admin password. I'll send you a PM (private Message), but before I do, please see the HP Privacy Statement.

This privacy statement informs you of our privacy practices and the choices you can make about the way information about you and your online activity is collected and how that information is used. This statement is available on our homepage at the bottom of each web page of HP and HP.com.

There are a growing number of messages in this forum and elsewhere in the internet with the steps to do a reset on different printers.  Reset to will sometimes fix problems, so resetting is not the issue.

A few resets require you to enter key combinations to open special menus on your printer that you were supposed to never access.  These special menus are used by developers and staff support for debugging of problems, but they are not intended for inexperienced users and can have unexpected results.  A wrong button push and you might no longer have a printer, but rather an expensive paper weight.  On top of that, if you happen to the 'brick' the printer in this way, it is considered as customer induced damage and voids the warranty automatically. These resets are only intended to be distributed and used as a last resort and under the direct instruction of a representative of the HP technical support. They should not be made lightly!

  • HP LaserJet 200 color M251nw: delete the print job?

    This should be very simple, but my grandma brain can't seem to find where to delete a print job from the printer.  Someone at - it help him?

    HP LaserJet 200 color M251nw with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite

    Thank you!

    Cindy S.

    There is nothing like you have had on the inkjet.  LaserJet is very fast that so generally they do not need store work as they are printed as they are sent and receive jobs one at a time and sometimes hold jobs in memory according to the size and the number of jobs received at the same time.  Only way to cancel is to hit labour to cancel it or the 'X' button depending on the model.  Storage of the work is available on some LaserJet of top-level with HDD storage, control and retrievel of jobs, but most of the time with the LaserJet you do not have this option.  Printers large format HP also have the possibility to store jobs (location and nesting), change the print order, etc., but again, what are printers with hard and special drivers built into the software to handle these tasks.

  • HP LaserJet 200 color M251nw: 200 Laserjet color m251nw in paper


    I have the printer configured above as a WSD printer on ethernet and shared on a Server Server R2 2012. The printer displays no problem, I can print the internal reports and diag pages. However, the driver on the server said 'in paper' and obviously does not in any one of the connected computers print.  The print driver is the "HP LaserJet 200 color M251 PCL6 driver class ' version 6.3.9600.17415.  I've updated the firmware to the last 20150212.  The printer has been installed a few months there and it worked very well at the start. Any thoughts?

    I ended up changing the printer port on the server of WSD for IP and that seemed to solve it.  I've never had good luck with the WSD printer ports.

    Connect one end of the telephone cord provided in the box with the printer on line 1 port at the back of the printer.
    Make sure that you connect 1 end to the telephone outlet and other online 1 on printer
    Use only the telephone cable provided with the printer

    After several relocations I still see HP\HP LaserJet 200 color MFP M276\Help_Learn\Help.exe and clicking on the icon I can see (by the Task Manager) running.

    Nothing visible on the screen?

    Hi marahu,

    My apologies, I should have been more clear!

    You can certainly still use your Firefox for everything, it's just that the LaserJet software relies on Internet Explorer, so we must still make sure it is up-to-date, but you don't have to use it if you do not want.

    Now you can go to Internet Explorer 11, simply use the link in my last post

    Once done, if the help file still doesn't load, you have to uninstall the printer and reinstall so it can recognize the updates you made.

    I would like to know how it goes!

  • Reset Admin password with reset disc (USB)

    Hi all

    I have Windows 7 Home Premium(64 bit) and I'm in trouble.

    My parents forgot admin password, my built-in admin is disabled(can't re-enable) and I don't know how to do something without triggering UAC. I can not turn off at all (password reset disk, command prompt cursor option [says I need administrator privileges], etc.).

    Password reset option

    Says that there is an error when the Reset Wizard tries to reset the admin password

    Command prompt

    Run as admin, to my password forgotten parents UAC

    Cursor option

    Requires a password.

    I need help, I can't run any application with the shield on this subject. And SERIOUSLY, I don't want to reinstall Windows.   Help, please!


    No, they are not links.  I tried to focus on the three key factors, you should check to find the good disk.

    The Act of creating a new password reset disk invalidates all previous ones.  If you need to find the last one which was made by the Admin account in question.

  • LaserJet Pro 200 color M251nw: Toner

    I just replaced my HP LaserJet CP1215 with color HP LaserJet Pro 200.

    The used CP1215 of toner in the CB540 series cartridges.  I still have unused capacity in them.  The M251nw uses the CF210 series cartridges.  They look the same.  Can I use the CB540 instead of the CF210?

    The cartrdiges CF210 and CB540 are not interchangeable. You will need to CF210a or high capacity CF210x series as it is stated on the Site of HP SureSupplycartrdige.

  • LaserJet Pro M251nw color 200: LaserJet Pro 200 color M251nw memory is low...

    I see that many others have had this same problem. Printer just 1 week out of the box. I tried to print as well via ethernet and wireless - same issue - something more than on a page of text quickly results in the message "memory is low job canceled". Both the firmware and the driver are updated. I've done several resets of power, and the printer is connected directly to a wall outlet. IPv6 is disabled, print Archive is enabled. I tried to reset the printing system on my iMac, Yosemite 10.10.2 running. Extremely frustrating!

    So, after a long conversation with technical support... it might be a Mac thing. I ended up printing of compensation system (delete all printers, then ctrl - click in the Printers box now empty) and reinstalling. Critical step here is to select the LaserJet Pro 200 by name, not the option 'Air Print. After reinstalling printing works great... until it doesn't. I had to repeat the process once already. A pain, but it works. Incidentally, I now use the wireless printer instead of via ethernet. Not sure if this is important, but it was the other suggestion made through technical support.

    That's great. Thanks for letting me know desilien.

  • LaserJet Pro 200 color M251nw: laser jet pro 200 m251nw of color do not print after installation

    After having trouble with an old printer, I decided to move to a faster, apparently better model purchased in a big box store.  I set up the printer according to the instructions, connected successfully to my network wi - fi and started to install the driver with the drive on my laptop, which is also a more recent HP.

    Everything installed perfectly, but does not pass the test print.  After trying all available on the HP site troubleshooting, (turned off, disconnected, reconnected, fuel up to... uninstall, download a driver specific to windows 8.1, reboot... printing reports of wireless network test and reports configuration... Disabling 3rd party firewalls, reboot and reinstall...) Everything says it is correctly installed, the printer is displayed correctly in the control panel and is defined as the default value.  When I try to print anything good, the screen on the printer briefly flashes 'impression', then goes back to the homescreen without even a glance.  Seconds later, my phone tells me that there is an error.

    I was fed up, and HP Print and Scan Doctor gave me no indication of potential problems.  I would like a customer service representative or technician to contact me to fix this problem as soon as POSSIBLE, I need this printer for my small business and have lost a whole day trying to make it work.

    Hey @getnirritated!

    Thank you for posting back!

    Here is a list of settings for the router company to make sure that the router is configured for a printer wireless networking:

    ~ Network name and password need to have no SPACES or punctuation
    ~ Must be using WPA security
    ~ 128-bit encryption type
    ~ Double broadcast wireless b/g/n (printer connect only to g.)
    ~ MAC filter should be disabled
    ~ The multicast must be enabled
    ~ Hello must be enabled
    ~ The value dual band 2.4 Ghz
    ~ The firewall settings should be there by default, settings or the value of lower security
    ~ Please that the following ports are not blocked:
    The incoming (UDP) ports: 137, 138, 161, 427 (iPad, 80, 443)
    Outgoing (TCP) ports: 137, 139, 427, 9100, 9220, 9500 (iPad 5222, 5223)

    I hope this helps to solve the problem!  Please post again and let me know how it goes!

  • LaserJet Pro 200 color M251nw: parts of Documents Print not

    When I try to print some documents, parts of them do not print. For example, I tried to print letters in a grid and the grid printed, but the letters do not have.

I've also had this happen with other documents in the past. My printer is connected to a USB port.

  • Cannot print from Internet Explorer 11 using HP LaserJet 200 color on Windows 7

    Who would be able to help me?

    When I want to print using Internet Explorer 11 on a Windows 7 PC, I can select Preview before printing, but when I actually want to print, it gives the error:

    "There was an internal error and Internet Explorer is unable to print this document."

    This error only occurs when the 200 HP LaserJet color is selected.

    I am able to print on our other HP printers, like the HP Color LaserJet CM4540 multifunction printers.

    I am also able to print on a printer using Chrome.

    If the problem seems to be related to Internet Explorer 11 in combination with 200 HP LaserJet color.

    I tried the 'standard' measures to resolve the issue, such as:

    1. disable Internet Explorer Protected Mode

    2. the value Internet Explorer default browser

    3 re-create the missing bass folder and define the level of integrity

    4. start Internet Explorer as an administrator

    This does not resolve the issue.

    Please notify. Thanks in advance.

    It is a problem with IE 11 on Windows 7 systems with no fix yet against MS.
