How to reset printer setting

Turn off the HP LaserJet 2840.

Press and hold down the "Enter" and "*" keys on the printer's control panel, and turn the printer back on.

Hold the "Enter" and "*" keys until you see the "Permanent Storage Init" message on the device control panel. Release the two keys to perform the NVRAM initialization. The NVRAM initialization takes just a few seconds, and the "Permanent Storage Init" message remains on the printer's display until the initialization is complete.

Ensure that the "Ready" message on the printer's control panel is visible. You can now connect the printer to your computer and print your documents. If the "Ready" message is not displayed and your printer is still stuck in a loop, turn off the printer and contact HP customer support (see Resources).

  • To reset an HP 2840 from your computer, open the HP Toolbox program, click "Device Settings," click "Service," click "Restore" in the Resets section and then click "OK" to confirm the action and restore the printer to its factory defaults.

How can I perform an NVRAM initialization with my HP CM1015 MFP

NVRAM initialization
CAUTION NVRAM initialization will erase all network settings. Before performing NVRAM
initialization, print a Network Configuration page, which contains network-setting information.
NVRAM initialization performs the following actions:
? Resets all customer-accessible menu settings via control panel and software back to the factory
default settings
? Resets the language to the value set at the factory
? Resets the default media size to cold reset media size
? Resets the symbol set to PC-8
NOTE The following steps reset the same NVRAM locations that are reset using the
Restore Defaults option in the control panel Service menu. The following process should be
used if the MFP does not come to a Ready state and an NVRAM initialization is desired.
Use the following procedure to perform an NVRAM initialization.
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Press and hold the Right arrow and Cancel buttons simultaneously.
3. Turn on the printer.
4. When you see the message Permanent storage init, release the Right arrow and Cancel buttons.
When the NVRAM init is complete, the printer returns to the Ready state.

How do I get it off of Manual feed?

I am assuming that you have paper in tray 2.
Lets try to inititialize the NVRAM.
This will reset everything in the printer.
1. Turn power off
2. Turn it on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the up arrow ^ until all three control panel lights flash once and then stay on.
3. Press the down arrow
Press the menu button. You should see Full NVRAM INIT in the display
5. Press the select button.

After the printer becomes ready, print. Make sure paper is in tray 2.

HP Laserjet 4345MFP
Backlight on printer display does not light.
Counts up the 256MB memory then HP logo (3 sizes) appears (just visible)
The 3 lights keep cycling on the display. Thats it, does nothing else.
It has been left overnight and continues to display the logo and cycling 3 lights.
Rear DC Cont Fan is turning. No other fans or activity with machine.
When ADF/scanner/mfp or hard disk are disconnected it does recognise this and throws an error and asks for reboot.
I have tried cold reset, nvram init. and hard disk init. but no difference.
Your thoughts?
