Is there anyway I can reset the HP laserJet Printer setting to the default? I have a margin issue when printing a Microsoft Word Document and I'm pretty sure it's the setting problem ( Other printers can print nicely without the margin issue).

But I can't seem to find anything on the Internet that shows me how to solve this problem. Any ideas?

My model is laserjet printer 1010


You can find cold reset instructions here for LaserJet printers, just make sure to choose the right model as you haven't mentioned it in your question.

For the 1010 you can reset your model like so:

Turn the printer off. Press and hold down the green GO button.

Turn the print on while continuing to hold down the green GO button for at least 5 seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the attention LED (!) turns on.

Release the GO button. The printer is ready if the green ready light is steadily on.


  • Printer model specified, it seems that there is no instruction for my model, though
