I FORGOT the ADMIN PASSWORD FOR - (WEB PAGE) - HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One Printer - N911g

Hi all

I changed my network SSID & PW but I forgot the password for the printer web page.

Password was written in a notebook and notebook is moved at the moment by the cleaning person.

Please HELP! Is there anyway I can reset the printer so that the admin password is also re-set. I try to reinstall the software printers, also I am not able to change the ip address and right now, there is no ip address... get no link and no ip address and no network... Please anyone who can help... Please help.

* I read some part... to power off the printer, then press the power button on... and continue pressing the back button where he would have, for some time the printer is back back (it was to reset the printer)... which is about 23 times... zero.

I really want to THANK you ALL for READING THIS & YOUR TIME. So please help if you can...

and ideas?

Thank you, xxVEGASxx

You can do a reset of the printer using the LED screen on the printer.

Select Configuration, then Tools, then restore the default settings. "Restore default settings" is the last element of the list and you will have to scroll down to see it.

Which erases all settings, including the password for the printer.

To reset you describe is probably the one mentioned in this article:


but it's probably a deeper reset that you really need anyway.

  • How to connect a USB modem fax when the phone line is connected to a HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus 4 - all - in-one?

    So I have a HP Office Jet Pro 8600 Plus (4-all-in-one) that I normally use to fax documents for commercial purposes. I became more and more tired for the first printing of documents directly from my computer to be faxed to another office. It is a waste of paper, ink and time. For this reason, I would like to set up a fax modem so I can use Windows Fax & Scan on my Gateway with Windows 7 computer so that I can directly fax documents from my computer to the recipient fax. The only question is, I have a phone line that I use for my fax and which is directly connected to the fax machine, but I understand a Faxmodem USB also plug into a phone line as well. How can I configure the USB fax modem without compromising the current telephone line attached to my fax machine? Do I need a splitter? I can still use my fax machine to receive faxes and fax all paper document not found in my computer (for ex. documents I received by mail).

    It is always profitable read the documentation provided with the device.  If you had, you would know that the software provided with it will allow you to fax documents directly from your computer without printing it and scanning first.  Download the software (and the user's guide - page 63- here.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: loss of wireless connection, printer does not accept the password wireless

    My printer has suddenly lost its wifi connection. It's the only phone connected to my network to do so.

    Through the Wireless Setup Wizard to restore the connection. Assistant tells me that I entered an invalid password wireless, that is not true. (I confirmed that all devices connected to the network using the same password).

    Reset the router (Technicolor of Time Warner). Reset the printer. The 'Restore default network' done. No luck.

    Zero has changed since yesterday, when my printer was working fine. I used the same router for months, do not change any settings. Any thoughts on what may be the issue? A bad update happen?

    Thanks in advance.

    My apologies for the late reply. I managed to get this problem resolved by phone to customer service.

    The security mode of the router had to be changed to 64 WEP for wireless connection to be restored. According to Support HP, it's a common problem with the routers in Technicolor. There was no explanation as to why the printer has suddenly lost the ability to connect wirelessly when safety was created to WPA2-PSK. The network has been configured this way for more than a year.

    I have almost solved this problem on mine (I had read about changing of security in a different post), but ran into a hiccup because of Safari. For some reason, Safari prohibited access to a menu page for my router security settings. You can imagine how boring it is to look at the HP Support use Firefox to access the router and do what a mouse click more, and then I had to make the change. So, if you make this change, be sure not to use Safari to access the gateway of the router Technicolor. Use Chrome or Firefox.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: I have a top loader of the OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus page works do not?

    The top loader will feed is out of paper. He reconizes that he delivers here but it will not feed... making the noise, but do not feed. Can I do to fix? I cleaned the rollers with alcohol.

    Hey @HandymanConnect,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP's Support.

    I see that you are having problems with the document feeder in your Officejet Pro 8600 more e-all-in-one printer. I can help you with that.

    First, I will mention that the cleaning of the rollers with alcohol has the opposite effect you hope. As the rollers of the printer depends on rough grip on rollers, with alcohol will break the rollers and damage to the printer. Instead, HP recommends to use water to clean the rollers and other components inside the printer.

    That said, make sure that the printer is plugged directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector. Once done, this document explains How to solve problems of choice with your document feeder.

    If after following the above, you are still not able to use the feeder, the printer must be replaced. You can contact the HP Support by clicking on this link and fill out the form below to discuss the options based on your warranty.

    Please let me know the results after following the above. If you are unable to resolve your problem, please click on accept solution. If you appreciate my help, please click on the thumbs up icon. The two icons are below this post.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus the Scanner Software


    I'm a big fan of HP products.  My last several printers, scanners and computers were all HP.

    I recently bought the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus to replace an older machine with similar features (ADF, duplex, etc.).  The previous machine was also an HP printer.

    The problem I encounter is that the software appears to have been downgraded.  The software on my previous machine had the ability to automatically analyze the photos laid on the flat bed scanner in individual jpg.  With the software on this computer, it seems that I need to manually crop each image.  The options for optimization of each picture, eliminating scratches, automatically adjust color, sharpness, etc. are all gone.

    I really miss these features.  I found that I had been using a "basic" version of the software.  I installed the full version and found it a little different, but it still lacks the automatic selection of the image and image tweaks I did this inveterate of.

    Is it possible to recover these options?

    Thank you


    What I found there are some good options based on their comments, I'm not sure if they will have all the features you're looking for, but...



    I would like to know if this is useful!

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus: can not get the printer to function after installing new wireless router

    I recently changed routers from D-Link to a Netgear R6400.  I could get my desk, the laptop and the i - Pad to connect to the new network, but not my HP Officejet Pro 8600 more.  When I try to change the IP address, which is what I think I do, the screen indicates "this feature has been locked by your system administrator or the one who put up the system."  I'm the only one using this printer and I put in place originally, but I do not remember 'locking' anything.  Will you please tell me how to solve this problem, so I can use the printer again.


    Thank you for using the HP forum.

    A suggestion that we recommend is to uninstall and reinstall the software FULL of features.

    Alternatively, you can try the doctor print and Scan?

    Please download and run the HP Print and Scan Doctor (PSDR) tool to diagnose and solve your problem
