Solved!

Factory reset possible without wifi connection?

HP Recommended
Samsung SCX-3405W printer
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After some issues I was looking at the printer setting via SyncThru Web Service and changed the the Wifi security parameter from WPA2 to (I believe) WPA2-AES. After applying the changes my printer disconnected and didn't connect to the Wifi network again. 😞

Is it possible to do a factory reset via the print front panel itself?

Or is there perhaps another possibility to get into my printer again and change the Wifi Security Parameter back to previous setting.

Help is apriciated 🙂

Read my post once more -> You need to navigate until your printer screen shows FC that is for reset.

On the YT video, the user navigates to AA that is for report printing.

Hi,

 

First of all thanks for the suggestion! 😉

However, this is printing the report only and doesn't bring me the factory reset I need to get connected to the printer again via Wifi.


Edit: I now understand (after google) that FC = Factory Memory Clear,

I only needed to press start one time.
