How to Reset HP Printer, 3630 Series DeskJet

 

If your HP 3630 series printer (including the 3632 that we’re demonstrating here), ever behaves strangely, or you need to update its wireless network settings, you can perform a hard reset, that restores the printer to factory default settings.  Once restored, you can then enter new printer settings from scratch, to connect it to a different wireless network.  Here, we perform this factory default reset on the HP DeskJet 3632 printer copier scanner.
