laserjet mf1212nf multifunction printer stuck "initializing..."

Attemtpting to update driver by USB connection to HP computer running Vista ultimate 32 bit.  Printer no locked "initializing..."

Tried repair utilities, but all hang up with USB connection to printer not working.  Anyway to restore printer unit to factory default?
Tried unplugging power cord, but still sticks in "initializing..." on printer screen.  Cannot use tool button to select factory restore, as no commands work.

I am unable to to install the firmware update-

USB connection doesn't the recognize printer connection, printer continues to say " initializing"

 

Tried connecting by wireless, but same issue, will not recognize the mf1212 printer on wireless connection.

 

Computer repeatedly making sound it makes when trying to connect to new hardware ( every 10 seconds) but fails to connect
