The HP LaserJet P2015 is a desktop laser printer that can print up to 27 pages per minute at 600 dpi. You can adjust a number of settings on the printer, such as the print quality, paper types and network settings. This allows you to personalise the device to your needs. If you accidentally change some settings and now the printer won’t work or won't allow you to change the settings back, a cold reset, which returns all the settings to their factory defaults, may be your only option.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the switch on the back of the right side of the P2015. This will turn the printer off.

  2. 2

    Press down on the “Go” button. The “Go” button is the second button from the bottom of the control panel, located on the right side of the top of the printer.

  3. 3

    Hold the “Go” button down for at least five seconds, but for no longer than 15 seconds. You will see one of the LED lights on the control panel turn on.

  4. 4

    Release the “Go” button. Your HP Laserjet P2015 is now back at the factory default settings.

Tips and warnings

  • The cold reset will reset all the settings and network information back to defaults, so be prepared to completely set up your printer again once the reset is done.
