Hi DamaRoja,

 

The default password for this model is the printer serial number.  The serial number can be found HERE.

I tried that already. But when I change it, request me again the password

Press and hold Stop button and release it when Alarm lamp flashes 23 times.

I know that this tread is 1 year old. But I have same problem and I have already tried to re-initialize my printer several times (6 times) and now I can not add it to the wireless again since it is still asking for the password. I tried the SN but it does not work.

 

+ I printed my network information and I can see that the SN from the printer matches with the one in the back

 

+ I also tried to use the ad-hoc mode and Im able to access the Wireless created by the Printer using as password the SN 

 

- But when tried to configure the printer to get connected to a router I get same log message mentioning the password is wrong 😞

 

+ Tried to configure with the Canon IJ network tool on MAC and Windows but still having the same problem 

with the printer turned on

Press and hold Stop button and release it when Alarm lamp flashes 23 times.

+ I tried several times and still not worked. 😞

+ Installed the latest firmware [3.0.1] [it was having 2.0.X]

+ Then tried again the procdure of waiting for 23 flashes and still not able to configure the printer to connect to the wireless since it ask for an admin password

+ Confirmed the SN by pressing the wireless icon, wait for power led to flash once, and then press the wireless botton again. So it printed the connectivity information and I do see the SN matches with the one on the back.

+ Tried capital letters, lower case but still not working 😞

 

 

Smiley LOL 

 

Ok, The soulution was 24 flashes. That made it work 😄
