Apparently the Admin account has a keychain record that has the password for the HP 601. You could always go look in the admin key chain for that password. Is the HP 601 using its own security or some Active Directory service? Who manages those accounts and can give you a password?
If you nothing else and you don't know the password, I probably would start by removing the print driver in System Preferences and then downloading a new version from HP or using their universal driver.
Hi Taylor. I am the one that manages the user accounts and there is nothing I've done that would require that particular printer to get a different treatment than the other printers available on the network. The printer, itself, was never set up to require any password. It is controlled mainled from a virtual web utility rather than from the control panel, so I'll look to see if there are any security defaults that require any password (can't find any so far though).
I'll take a few steps back and repair permissions, check for driver updates at HP, and delete/re-create the printer queue.
Thanks so much, Taylor.
