OfficeJet Pro 8620: Locked out of the printer settings

Good evening

I was unable to print wireless so I did a network reset the unit. When I rebooted the machine, I proceeded to return to the network settings in order to capture the wireless information however I received the error "function has been locked by the administrator or the person who set up your printer".

I'm not sure what is the problem with that I'm the one who created this printer. I assign a password to the machine, and with that, I have no option to enter in order to unlock all the features (there is usually an option under 'Tools'.).

After some searching through the forums, I printed a wireless test and the results were a single FAILURE for Wireless on.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards



He had a semi full reset, which once preformed resturned unit to its state of semi reset and allowed me to change the settings I made.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8620: Analysis of problems of printer to the computer using windows 10

    I just upgraded to Windows 10 and now I'm not able to scan from the printer to the computer. I can scan the other way IE. computer to scan but is not as convenient. I had no question before the upgrade. The error message I get is

    "The analysis could not be performed because of one or more of the following problems:

    First of all it is connected with a usb cable, so no logical reason why the connection is lost.

    Secondly it is not used because I am trying to use it

    Third, it has baffled me because there is no reason why the OCR application is now gone, he worked before windows 10.

    and finally there is no detail on the computer screen, why it tells me that I do not understand.

    Hello again,

    Looks like the next option is to uninstall & reinstall the printer software. This will ensure that the scan to computer option is restored.

    Please find the link below to install the printing software.

    Note: Esnure that the chosen operating system is win10.

    If you are facing difficulties with the installation or uninstall, please contact HP technical support to the 1-800-474-6836.

    3. Type "coil" and press enter or click OK.
    4. Select and open the drivers folder, select the x 64 folder if you have a 64-bit operating system or the w32x86 if you have a 32-bit operating system.
    5 open the 3 folder, locate the HPBXPSRENDER. DLL file and rename it to HPBXPSRENDER. OLD

  • Office jet pro 8620: should I disable the printer without cartridge installed?

    I removed the original HP ink that was defective and took it back. Now I have the inkjet (Office jet pro 8620) without cartridges installed. The printer says not to disable so that it does not get damaged but I'll be away for a week and want to turn the printer off. I will cause damage if they do?

    Thank you. I guess I'll have to keep on like this for a week then. Too bad.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8620: Can I use the Wi - Fi access and wired on HP OfficeJet Pro 8620

    I have Linux and Mac computers on my network.  I have no difficulty in printing (usually), rarely, I can print from my Mac computer via a wireless connection.  I also have trouble sometimes maintaining an internet connection on my Mac: sometimes falls my wireless connection.

    MU question is: regardless of the operating system, is it possible to have both wired and wired connections to the printer at the same time?

    Thank you.

    # You can have USB and wired, or USB and wireless.  You can not have wired and wireless at the same time.   As soon as the Ethernet cable is connected wireless is disconnected automatically.

    Does anyone else have this problem or advice?

  • OfficeJet Pro 8500 a: replacement of the print head

    No yellow does not print at all, who are considering the purchase of the Black/Yellow Printhead to fix this problem.  Just replaced the yellow w/HP cartridge cartridge.  Printhead cleaning several times, tried the alignment (failed twice).  Printer is relatively old (model CM755A, CN12OBR1JJ series) and warranty expired in 2012.  Should I buy a new printer, or replace the print head will definitely cure the problem?


    In most similar cases, the replacement of the print head can work sometimes and sometimes not.

    and given that the printer is a bit old, I'd say for an upgrade.

  • OfficeJet pro 8620: how to set up printer to turn on automatically when you receive an incoming fax on a dedicated line

    I want to configure my printer to turn on automatically when receiving incoming fax. Do I have to leave power or can I change the setting to turn on automatically with each incoming call. He is a dedicated fax line that is not connected to my computer. Also there is a sleep mode, the power led remains on when you use the sleep mode?

    Hi @mcqwats,

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! I see you want for your printer HP switch automatically when an incoming fax arrives. You have not the possibility to activate the automatic answer - on, but the printer must be turned on so that this function executes.

    There is however no way to set the preferences to activate the printer when it is off.

    I hope that answers your questions.

    Thank you

  • OfficeJet Pro 8620: Problem with two-sided printing by default settings Officejet Pro 8620.

    On my MAC, I opened the preferences system - print & Scan - Options & supplies, the pop up window only contains two tabs: Gerneral and power levels. The other tabs such as the default settings are not displayed. So I can't set default 2 Facer of printing. In such a case, I find that I can always print both ways in the face of some software where I can change the settings for print specifically in this software. But I can't change the settings of the printer in Adobe Acrobat format, because change is always through the same interface as I mention above. How I solve the problem? I am connected to my printer via wifi. Thank you.


    In Adobe Acrobat, open the print dialog box, and then click on the "Printer" button... "to access the print dialog box standard operating system.

    There should not be a default on a Mac tab, the settings can be saved as default recording these as a preset in the print dialog box, then a used preset will be default.


  • OfficeJet Pro 8615: Computer thinks that the printer is turned off

    My computer does not see the printer as being on.  I have the printer connected wireless, but the computer shows it as offline.  When I run the troubleshooter, it tells me to turn on the printer (it's on).  I can scan a document and sends it to the computer but I can not print from the computer to the printer.  I think it's maybe a problem of Windows 10 but I'm not sure.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I also ran a test network through the printer and everything this past.  Don't know what to do from here.

    I've updated but that does not solve the problem.

    Finish by uninstalling the printer software and reload the drivers.  This seems to have taken care of the issue.  So far so good.

    I think that the combination of the upate and reload the drivers solved.
