Safely donate printer - privacy?

HO Deskjet 4180

I would like to donate my printer, but want to remove any sensitive info.  It is an HP Deskjet 4180. Do I just reset to factory default settings? Please advise on steps I need to take.  I posted a question at Fixya (or something like that) but became leery when a posted answer told me to call a # (which I did), but I stopped when he told me that he would have to have access to my computer and that it was nothing that I could do myself. I quickly hung up and then thought of this forum. 


Thanks in advance,

Thank you for joining the HP Community


Let's perform a reset on the printer.


I have sent you a private message, to reset the printer that cannot be shared in a public post.

Can you please check your inbox on the forums page for the private message.


Have a great day!
