How can I Reset My Printer

When your printer encounters repeated problems like connectivity issues, paper jamming, slow response time and low ink errors (even though you put in a new cartridge), it’s probably time you consider a printer reset! Restoring the printer to its factory default settings should be your last recourse while troubleshooting.

If you own an HP printer, you can be assured that resetting to factory default settings will not reset the language, page count or tray size. Here are the steps to easily reset the printer.


  1. Turn off your device. Unplug the power cable from the rear and wait for at least 60 seconds before reconnecting it.
  2. Turn on the printer while you press and hold the Resume button for 10 seconds. This should turn on a yellow attention light.
  3. Now, release the Resume button. Ready and Attention lights should start cycling, indicating that the resetting process has started.


For connectivity and network related issues, you have an option to restore the printer to its original network settings.

  1. On the printer control panel, press and hold the “Wireless button” and “Cancel button”.
  2. Hold this for nearly five seconds and then release the buttons.
