Recycling Printer: safe to do?

Product Name: Photosmart 2610

I am going to recycle my used printer.  Are there any concerns with anything it might have in memory through scanning/faxing?  Or, does it not have a memory where anything is stored?  Just want to be as safe as possible for identity theft protection.  Can I just drop it off at Staples without concern?

This is a great location to get assistance! I read your post and see that you want to recycle the HP Photosmart 2610 printer. I would like to help you with this.

 

Yes you can recycle the printer.

To be on a safer side restore the printer to factory defaults.

You can restore the original factory settings to what they were when you purchased your HP all-in-one.

 

You can perform this process from the control panel only.

  • Press Setup.
  • Press 6, then press 3.
  • This displays the Tools menu and then selects Restore Factory Defaults. The factory default settings are restored.

Click here and refer page no.150 in the user guide.

 

Let me know if that helps.

Cheers.
