PIXMA MG3522 password without username

[ Edited ]

I set a password on my printer, but now it's asking me to log in with a username and password, but it never let me set the username. What is the baked-in username that I am supposed to use? I tried Admin, admin, and canon.

You can initialize the machine settings to set the network password and other network settings of the printer back to default settings by following the steps shown here, then set a new password for the printer using the Admin Password Sheet of the IJ Network Tool.  To set the new password, please follow the steps shown here.


Please note, you will also need to reinstall the drivers on your computer once the network settings of the printer have been initialized.  The latest drivers for the printer can be downloaded from the Canon USA website here.


Hope this helps!
