Hard Reset procedure for LaserJet 4600dn?

Hi all!

Anybody know the Hard Reset procedure for a HP Laserjet 4600?  I've been Googling for the past hour or so and keep getting hits where people suggest it (eg: "Have you tried a hard reset?"), but nobody has mentioned the exact procedure.  

I know on another LJ it has something to do with holding certain buttons down while you plug it in - but if you can help with the 4600 I'd appreciate it!

Thanks!

Mark

What you want is a cold reset

Turn the printer on and allow the printer to start the power-on sequence, then press and hold the green check mark key until all three lights on the control panel are lit. When Select Language appears on the display, press the Up Arrow key until Cold Reset appears on the display. Press SELECT and the printer will perform a cold reset and continue its power-on sequence.

or possibly an NVRAM reset.
Make note of any info such as IP address before nvram reset as it will all be lost. Print off a configuration page if possible.

There should be a menu under "configure device" -> "resets" and then reset to factory default settings.

Here.  A very handy page with the Cold Reset steps for various HP Printers.  I've found this very useful over the years:

OOOps.  Shoulda commented before I awarded points.  Duoh!  Anyway, thanks all.  I guess my mistake was searing on "Hard Reset" instead of "Cold Reset".  Very helpful links - which I have bookmaked, and an extra point to Joed for actually posting the procedure itself.  Many thanks.
