Resetting an OfficeJet X-series Printer
Since this printer has no physical buttons, but a touch screen display there is a special way to get into service mode
Right after applying the latest firmware upgrade on a brand new HP X476 printer, All of the admin functions displayed a padlock icon, they were locked and requested an admin password. Since I had just gotten the printer, got it networked, and all the preferences set, I had not created an admin password. The update assumes you had set it and locks all of the admin functions. So I had no password set, therefore there was no password after the update. So I could not do a reset as it is protected.
After over and hour with HP Support (his name was "Bob" with a very heavy Indian accent) I got them to "give up" the way to get into the service mode to do a hardware factory reset.
Warning: There are functions in this mode that are meant for service technicians and can cause major damage. We all like to "tinker" but I strongly suggest you stick to the reset functions only.
Start from the home menu on the printer's screen. Press the "return" icon. It is not illuminated at this point. You can display it by pressing one of the main icons (copy, scan, fax, apps) and mark where it is. Press it 4 times. The servfce menu appears. press down until you get the reset menu. Select the partial reset. That should reset the printer to factory defaults.

Remove the JetDirect card while you cold reset the printer if you don't want to erase the JetDirect card's settings.
You can also reset the NVRAM. Resetting the NVRAM will clear the page count and reset the service mode settings to factory defaults. On printers with a display panel you need to enter service mode to manually change the information stored in NVRAM.

Dear sir;I believe you can try " cold reset", that's means going to clear all data from the printer memory and sets all the defaults back to the factory settings.performing a "cold reset" resets the jetDireect configuraion. to avoid making changes to yourconfiguration, remove the jetDirect card before performing a cold reset. if possible, print a configuration page prior to performing a cold reset. this will document current settings for later reference.
to perform a cold reset;
1, turn off the printer.
2, while pressing "go", turn the printer on. COLD RESET appears briefly on the display, then INITIALIZING appears.after a few seconds, RESTORING FACTORY SETTING appears on the display, followed by OFFLINE.the cold reset is complete.
3, press "go" to return the printer online "ready " appearson the display.
Little bit complicated but is easy ,hope can take care your problem, GOOD LUCK! Let me know the resolve please!
HAVE A HAPPY HOLIDAY !!!
