I have a HP laserjet P2015dn that is one of my branch offices. The network recently changed to a different subnet. This printer however was assigned a static IP from the old subnet. How do I get the printer back to factory default settings so it will grab an IP address from the new DHCP server?

I think that you need to hold down one of the buttons during a hard reset.

Don't remember which one, but it should be in the manual at the HP site.

I hope this helps !

Turn the printer off. Then hold the Green Go button while turning on the printer. Continue holding the green Go button for at least 5 seconds (but no longer than 15 seconds I believe), then release it.

ok just found out that it's the red button not the green one you need to hold in for 5 seconds.

you could always set your network card ip address to the same range / subnet, and web browse to the printer and change the ip address

Hmmmm....what is it that makes you say the cold reset doesn't work? You can also try a NVRAM reset, but I don't think that will help any if the cold reset doesn't work. For NVRAM reset, same as above, but hold for more than 15 seconds. Here is some more info...
