This document provides basic instructions for performing a partial reset of the product. Performing a partial reset accomplishes the following:
  • All user menu settings are reset to the default values.
  • All telephony parameter values are reset to the default values.
  • Country and language UI is reset to the default values.
  • Fax memory is cleared.
Performing a partial reset of the All-in-One
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product, and then wait for 20 seconds.
  2. Press and hold # and 3 on the product control panel while connecting the power cord to the back of the product.
  3. Release the buttons when the product turns on. The reset is complete.

I tried the 3 steps for a Partial Reset given by  above and it did not work for me.  This is what I came up with through trial-and-error, modifying their instructions.

 

Performing a "modified" partial reset of the HP J4680 All-in-One Printer.

 

1.  Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
2.  Plug back in.
3.  Before the black block scrolls completely across the screen (& parks, dead)...
4.  Disconnect the power cord from the back of the printer.
5.  Wait for 20 seconds.
6.  Press and hold # key
7.  Connect the power cord to the back of the printer.
8.  While holding # key, press and hold 3 key on the printer control panel.
9.  Release the buttons when the printer turns on. The reset is complete.  You will have to reset some basic settings (Language, Location, etc.).
