Question about Printers & Copiers
If you are still connecting here? If password has been put on by a user who is no longer with the company and we need to get into an HP2015 but we are locked out by that password ...will an NVRAM reset clear the password? or is there some other way to do it?
can you write to me directly with an answer to firstname.lastname@example.org
I would try the cold reset again. From the service manual :-
A cold reset changes most system parameters in NVRAM to the factory defaults. However, unlike NVRAM initialization, a cold reset does not reset the page count, the paper tray sizes, language, or formatter number.
NOTE A cold reset also resets all the HP Jetdirect settings as well as the printer settings.
Use the following procedure to perform a cold reset.
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Press and hold the Go button.
3. Turn the printer on, and continue to hold the Go button for at least 5 seconds, but not longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the Attention LED turns on.
4. Release the Go button.
NOTE If both the Attention and the Ready LEDs turn on before you release the Go button, you must start the procedure again with step 1.
The printer's LEDs begin cycling. The cold-reset process runs until completion, and the printer returns to the ready state.
