I had this problem for quite a while you have to tap they power button a couple times at first it takes a few times to figure out the correct timing but then you will be able to do it with just two correctly timed taps. I know it sounds silly BUT IT WORKS!!

Was givin a used unit and want to reset it to factory default


To reset BIOS to factory default settings, press "F10" during the POST section and then press "F5" to reinstall factory BIOS settings, Save the new settings and reboot.
To recover to a clean install of the Operating System you will need a set of Recovery Disks. If you do not have them, and the machine will load Windows successfully then you should be able to create them from the "HP Backup & Recovery Manager" although whether this will return to factory default or simply create disks for recovery to its current state I am not sure. Alternatively I understand you can get Recovery Disks from HP, although whether still available for this model - I don't know. Hope this helps.

Reset the Printer to Factory Default Settings Restore factory settings Restoring the factory-set defaults returns most of the settings to the factory defaults. It will not reset the page count, tray size, or language. To restore the product to the factory-default settings, follow these steps.
  1. Turn the product off. Disconnect the power cable from the product for 30 seconds and then reconnect.

I changed my ink, but the printer will not print in color. It only prints in B&W. It is a f4180. i have windows home vista. i need to print a school project by tommorrow - help!


Try unplugging the printer for five minutes and than plug it in back in and turn it back on. By doing this we are resetting the printer to the Factory Defaults, (settings that were set when it left the factory) Hope fully this will help you.

Want to reset to Factory Default


Hi,

with HP the recovery console activation should just be F11 without the CTRL.

If your recovery partition does not work, or is corrupt/missing then your best bet is to either order the recovery discs or take it to a local tech that may have access to OEM discs that can be used with the license key on the machine to reinstall the operating system.

Cannot turn printer on


might as well do a reset:
for partial reset:
1.unplug the power cord wthout turning the printer off
2.while the cord is unplugges, press # and number 3 simultaneously
3.hold the 2 button for 10 seconds while inserting the plug back
4.release the 2 buttons when the printer reinitialized.

for semi-full reset:
follow same steps but press # and number 6

semi full means the printer is set back to factory settings or default settings.

Reset to factory default


The router's admin page is http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and the default password should be either "admin" or "password" without quotes. There should be a choice under "Setup" called "Factory Reset". That will erase the settings and reset it like new.

Alternatively, you can follow the procedure as given below on all the brands I've tried (Belkin, D-Link, Linksys)

1. hold the reset button for 30 seconds (don't release)
2. unplug the power (still holding reset) for 10 seconds
3. plug power back in (still holding reset)
4. hold reset for another 30 seconds - the lights will usually begin flashing in some odd pattern
5. release the reset button
6. wait 1 full minute or until the lights stop flashing
7. unplug the power for 10 seconds, just to do a reboot
8. verify the settings (e.g. SSID) are back to the defaults
