HP Laserjet 200 color M251 driver installation password

I have a HP Laserjet 200 color M251 printer.

This is really frustrating, why put a password on the printer. Im furious.

Can somebody please please tell me the password for the printer. Im currently stuck on the driver installation page
as it says "Printer is password protected. Enter password and select Next".

Can somebody please tell me the default password.

I don't think that model has a password set by default.  If 0000 or 12345678 or some other typical printer password doesn't work, I would just reset the printer to factory defaults.

Here is the printer manual for that printer from HP's website.  See page # 82 of the document (which is actually page 94 of the PDF file) for instructions on how to reset to factory settings:
