Restore factory defaults on your HP printer

Restore your printer to the default factory settings using the HP Smart app, printer control panel, or Embedded Web Server (EWS). Restoring the printer to factory defaults can help resolve printer setup issues, connectivity problems, and error messages.


Restoring factory defaults does not automatically remove the printer from your HP account or cancel your Instant Ink subscription (if enrolled). To get your printer ready to sell, donate, or recycle, go to Prepare an HP printer for recycling or resale.
