Many HP M3027x printing problems can be solved by a reset. (crumpled paper image by Alexey Klementiev from

The HP LaserJet M3027x printer is a discontinued multifunction printer optimised for business applications. The M3027x is designed to print as many 75,000 sheets per month, but even at lower usage levels you may encounter occasional printing problems or communication errors. Fortunately, many of these problems can be solved by a simple reset.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the yellow "reset" key located to the right of the number pad. This returns the M3027x to its default configuration and should solve any problems caused by improper user input. If there is still a problem, a full reset is necessary.

  2. 2

    Press the red "stop" button to pause any pending documents, and then set the "on/off" switch located near the bottom right of the printer to the "off" position.

  3. 3

    Unplug the printer from its power source and disconnect any USB or network connection cables from the ports located on the back of the printer.

  4. 4

    Wait for a minute before plugging the M3027x back into its power source and flicking the "on/off" switch to the "on" setting. The device should now be returned to its original factory settings. Plug in any USB and network cables that you disconnected earlier.

Tips and warnings

  • You may need to reinstall software drivers on the PC connected to the M3027x after a reset. This can be accomplished using either your original HP installation disc or by downloading drivers from HP's website.
