Dear Experts

I have got few printers that I don't want them and I am looking to do a reset for a learning purpose.

I tried to reset 8500 following the instructions in link below but it is for 8600 not 8500

http://resetprinters.com/how-to-reset-the-hp-officejet-pro-8600-premium-all-in-one-printer/

They categorized resets to 3 different types Partial Rest, Semi-Full Reset, Full Reset

I couldn't make it work,,,,I don't know if I did something wrong or that won't apply to 8500 ??

Thx

Observe Printer Screen Carefully
You Must See The "RETURN" Key
Press This Key 3 Times
This opens Support menu
If this fails, press it for 4 times.
