Purging printer memory

I have a Hewlett Packard hp psc 750 printers.  I was told that printers store documents sent to them, and are nevery truly purged and can be recovered.  Is this so, and if it is, how can I permanently remove anything stored somewhere in my printers memory?

Thanks for your response in advance.

The PSC 750 will not remember printed documents in any way. Certainly, without a hard disk there is no way a job could be remembered when you switch the printer off.

However, you can do a factory reset on the printer, to clear all settings. To do that, pull out the power cord. Then, hold buttons 2 and 3 while pugging it back in. For more details see

hdhondr - Thank you for your response.  My printer does not have numbered buttons.  The hp 750 is a 3-in-one (printer, scanner, copier).  I went the the site you suggested in your response, and they referenced these buttons as well.  

Hmmm...am I missing something?  Now what?

I think they'll be the ON and CANCEL buttons. Refer to:
