What kind of password are you trying ot change?  Specifically a local username and password, the enable password, the exex password, etc.  Do you curently have access to the device?

Telnet password on PIX

Correct (must be in config mode)
PIX(config)# enable password <new_enable_password>
PIX(config)#password <new_telnet_password>

You cannot apply a password directly to the serial console port, but you can set the console port to use AAA local username/password. Pix calls the console port "serial" port
  aaa authentication serial LOCAL

The PIX will not challenge you for a password for direct connection to the console port. If you want the PIX to present you with a username/password prompt from a direct console connection, then you have to enable aaa authentication to use LOCAL username/password. Example:
 aaa authentication serial console LOCAL
 username nasemabdullaa password yourPa$$w0rd privilege 15

Then when you console into the PIX, instead of:
 pixfirewall>

You will see:

User Access Verification
Username: <enter username>
Password: <enter password>
Type help or '?' for a list of available commands.
pixfirewall>
