Hp Printer Partial Reset, Semi-full Reset, and OOBE Reset (Hewlett-Packard)


  • Basic method:

    • Tap Setup > Printer Maintenance > Restore > Restore Factory Defaults > Restore

    • The dialog box warns:

      All configured settings in the printer will be deleted and the original factory settings will be restored. This includes the administrator password for the embedded web server (EWS), Address Book entries for scan, and Phone Book entries for fax.

      Also, Web Services account information will be removed, you will need to setup Web Services again on this printer. Until Web Services is set up again, HP Instant Ink will not work properly.

  • According to Three Types of Resets for your HP Officejet 6110,

    Partially resetting it will return the printer to a responsive state without erasing the settings that you may have set on the printer.

    The semi-full reset is applicable on issues where the printer has gone haywire and does not perform as expected. This process requires all settings and data saved in the printer to be erased.

    [Full Reset] is rarely used. Usually the semi-full reset will do the job. . . . [T]here have been instances in the past where doing this reset procedure has cause permanent damage to the printer. Proceed at your own risk.

  •  states that none of these worked to reset the administrator password on an HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One:

    1. Partial Reset
    2. Semi-Full Reset
    3. OOBE Reset
    4. Full Reset
    5. Clear derivatives

    However, he was able to reset the administrator password by resetting the network settings (Wi-Fi icon on LCD > settings icon > Restore Network Settings). On the OfficeJet 5740, the prompt states: Network settings (including proxy settings), and the administrator password for the embedded web server (EWS), will be reset.

  • The clear nmv option returned It is not the default serial number Failed to reset NVM. Changed the serial number to all zeros on a whim to no avail. However, angerion explained how to dump and overwrite the NVM on an HP Photosmart C4480; the options are located under Engineering Menu > Underwear Menu > photo menu: dump nvm=>file and dump file=>nvm.

    • While I was able to dump the NVM to an SD card, attempting to write back a zero-filled NVM2_RAW.DMP returned error 0: unsupported. Renaming to any other filename (including NVM_RAW.DMP, which angerion used) would return error: bad file /fs/sda1/NVM2/NVM2_RAW.DMP.
