Question about HP LaserJet 2840 Printer
Most HP printers can be reset to factory defaults (or cold-reset ) by turning the printer off and holding down the Online or Go button while turning the printer back on. The printer control panel display should read "Cold Reset" or "Restoring Factory Settings" or something like these lines. This will remove any IP address that the printer had previously.
When you plug it in, your router should have assigned an ip address automatically. Go into your router and look at the attached devices and it will show you what ip address has been assigned to each device on your network.
Use Web Interface or Manually Assign an IP address NOTE: Network HP Printers allow you to manage them via Internet Explorer. You can enter the IP address that the printer currently has and access its configuration settings. This assumes that the web interface hasn't been locked.
NOTE: We recommend that you install the latest version of Sun's Java software before trying these steps. See this How To: How to Update Sun's Java 2 Runtime Environment Plug-in.
NOTE: There are 2 basics versions of the web interface. Type 1 is on newer printers. Type 2 is on older models
Type 2: Click the Administration button. Click the Configuration tab.
Configuring TCP/IP through the Front Control Panel
Note: For the complete printer user guide, go to the HP Printers Support & Troubleshooting page. Locate your specific printer type and model. On its home page, under self-help resources, click the manuals link. Download the printer's User Guide (not the Getting Started Guide). Look for steps to manually configure TCP/IP parameters from the printer control panel.
IP address will be entered at the IP BYTE prompt
Subnet mask is entered at SM BYTE prompt
Gateway address is entered at GW BYTE prompt
Note: The syslog server IP address (LG BYTE 1=) and timeout (TIMEOUT=) do not need configured.
Hope this helps
