Try to change the password over the network by tyoing the assigned IP address into your browser URL. If you can see the P2015, you should ba able to find the place to change or disable the admin password. If not, perform a Super NVRAM Initialzation:

  1. Turn off the HP Laserjet P2015 Printer.
  2. Press and hold the Go button.
  3. Turn on the printer and continue to hold the Go button for at least 50 seconds. During this process, the Attention, Ready, Go lights turn on. Then the Attention and Ready lights turn off,leaving only the Go light illuminated.
  4. Release the Go button. The Go, Ready and Attention lights turn on.
  5. Press and hold the Go button. All lights turn off. During the next three seconds, the Go, Ready and Attention lights turn on in that order, one per second.
  6. Release the Go button to perform the initialization. The control panel lights begin cycling from front to back. After the Super NVRAM initialization process is complete, the printer returns to the ready state.

To do a cold reset you power on the printer while holding down the go button for about 5 seconds and then release the button. If the button is held for more then 15 seconds it may do a NVRAM reset.

You have to use the software that came with the printer to set it up. Another method if the printer picks up an address from your router would be to type that address in your web browser and then you can make changes. You could perform a cold reset on the printer by holding the go button down while powering on the printer and holding that button down for at least 5 seconds but no more than 15 seconds and it will reset everything to factory defaults which also sets the network card back to autodect where if your network is capable it will assign the address to the printer.

Make sure you check the paper path thoroughly. Even a small piece of paper can obstruct a sensor and keep it from moving. Be sure to open the rear door and check the fuser sensor as well. If you still cannot find any obstruction or stuck sensor(s), perform a cold reset as follows:
  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.
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.

Change my printer network access password


For an HP Officejet printer:
You can reset the printer definitions taking off the power cord and holding # + 6 buttons (semicomplete reset) or # + 9 (full reset) while connecting power cord again.

For an HP Laserjet printer:
Try logging in with admin as username and leave the password blank.
If not, preform a "cold reset" on the printer which resets parameters back to factory defaults. You want to print off a configuration page first. From the service manual :-

Cold Reset

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.

Turn off the printer and unplug the USB cable. Open up Device Manager. In the View menu, make sure that Show hidden devices is checked. Click on the + sign next to Printers in the right-hand pane. Uninstall any entries for Laserjet P2015. Reinstall the drivers for the printer. When instructed, plug in the USB cable and turn on the printer. It should recognize the device and allow you to print a test page.
