HP Laserjet 4L test page?

I'm troubleshooting a
HP laserjet 4L.

At the moment it's not connected to anything except the power plug.

How can I print a self-test page?

Please use plain text.

Hi

It has a test menu so step through the menus and enter this menu and print test page

It would appear that holding the button down for more than 10 seconds ought to do it.
