@pudy68, simply just unplugging the power cord from the printer and wall, then plugging back in after 30 sec will clear the memory.

Re: How to erase printer's memory

@lions99 -  are you sure that erases everything on the chip itself?  My print head dies and I need to trash this printer but I don't want any scanned images/pdf info to linger.  Do your intructions restore it to factory settings, or just erase the print queue?

Re: How to erase printer's memory

One of my HP Printers Model#7310 is being retired.  How do I clear the memory?   Additional problem, I have been getting the message "Remove & check Color Cartridge".   I have been unable to eliminate this problem & I have had to replace it with the HP Photosmart #C410.  I would like to know how to enlarge a small letter or picture placed on the glass on the #C410.                         Thanks,              Frank

Re: How to erase printer's memory

My printer is a desjet F4100 i believe, there's this one print job stuck in the queue, I've tried cancelling, restating, resuming, none of that worked. I even unplugged the wall plug and restarted it, absoloutely nothing seems to be working. Someone, please help Smiley Sad
