My husband messed up our printer by trying to connect his work laptop to home printer. I sure could use a hard reset. Anyone know the trick? We have an XP laptop officejet 6500 E709n

Press the Setup Button>Network Setup>Restore Network Defaults. That should reset the network settings so that you can connect the printer to another wireless network.

Unplug power from both the wall and the printer for 5 minutes. After that, hold the # and 6 keys while powering back on.
Say thanks by clicking "Kudos" "thumbs up" in the post that helped you.

I have tried the #6 and #9 to reset my printer, but it keeps coming back with the error message "Ink System Failure". I left it off (unplugged) overnight, tried again this morning.
Once it goes into this error message (no message #), no buttons will work.
What else can I try?
