Not sure I fully understand the issue.
We normally reserve a non-used IP number in DHCP.  You'll need the MAC number for that, which you can get from Config printout on the printer even if it isn't on the network.

Windows doesn't like having two objects trying to access the same IP Number

To reset/change the IP address of the printer you need to go to Configure Device, I/O, Embedded Jetdirect and change the IP address there.  Hope this helps!

Hi, thanks 4 input
I'm trying to reset/removed the IP address from this printer that being duplicates with the current new HP Printer

I don't have access to the Server (DHCP)

The reason to do this (reset) is to try to utilize this printer for other department once the ip address is reset / removed  & rejoint the network (that too many steps ahead & ibwont go there until accomplished the 1st step)

Thanks!

If you can't get rid of the IP address it could be because the printer has an IP address reserved in DHCP linked to the MAC address of the network card.

Get your admin to check DHCP to see if the printer does have a IP address reserved, as you'll need to release the address for your other printer.

If there is printer with a duplicate IP on the network, the easiest way to reset the IP for the old printer is to:
1.  turn off the new printer
2.  go to the IP in an internet browser
3. change the IP and save the settings

That should fix it in just a few minutes.
