How can I reset a Dell 5100cn printer back to its default settings?

How can I reset a Dell 5100cn printer back to its default settings?

I would like to perform a "cold reset" (as HP calls it) on this Dell 5100cn printer.

How can I do this?

You may download the Owner's Manual from:

This is on page 35:
