Factory Reset for HP LaserJet M401


Man, this was a pain. I searched all over the Internet for a solution and almost all of the options were irrelevant. Such as, oh you want to reset the printer? Just go into the system menu and choose reset to factory settings. This woul dbe helpful if I wasn’t locked out of the printer due to someone putting a password on the printer! (Who does that anyway?)

So here’s the fix before I continue my rant….

  • Power off the printer.
  • Hold the RIGHT ARROW button + the CANCEL X button.
  • Power on the printer.
  • Hold those buttons down until you see see the resetting system and then release.
  • That’s it.
