Password box for printing is popping up

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


Hi Readers,

I just have a question regarding our Cannon printer at home. It was setup to be on a network and with a password, as it was used for business before. But now, my father already setup a new office away from home and I am really bothered by the pop up box for password every time I print.

How do I remove it?

Help needed.

Hello Tanya!

The problem occurs because the admin restricted the use of the printer that's why it has password box.

It can be remove by uninstalling the software and reinstalling it. Or restore the factory setting of the printer.

Here is the solution,

Restore factory defaults:

Open the printer then hold the resume button for 10 flashes then let go,

This will reset the printer to factory defaults and remove any Password etc.


For The Admin part:

Ask your father for admin password then go to control panel.

Go to user accounts and choose the admin account.

Change my user account type and unclick limited or just click computer amdin.
