NVRAM initialization (Cold Reset copied from the service manual):

Performing an NVRAM initialization resets the following settings and information:

●All menu settings are reset to factory default values.

●All localization settings, including language and country/region, are reset.

CAUTION: All onboard network settings are also reset. Be sure to print a configuration page before restoring defaults. Make note of the IP address that is listed on the Jetdirect configuration page. You might need to restore the IP address after an NVRAM initialization. After performing an NVRAM initialization, reconfigure any computers that print to this product.

 

1. Turn the product off.

2. Touch the right arrow button. Hold this button as you turn the product on.

NOTE: The right arrow button is not visible when the product is off, but it is still active. Note its position before you turn off the product.

3. When Permanent storage init. appears on the display, release the right arrow button.

 

When the product has finished the NVRAM initialization, it returns to the Ready state.

Press and hold the lower left hand corner of the screen when you boot the printer. There is a secret spot on the screen that will trigger the cold reset process.  The spot is about where the progress bar starts when the machine is booting.
