    Reset Sequence for HP BIJ 1200?

    I need to reset the networking on one of my HP 1200 DTNs I cant remember the sequence though and the HP site is being less that helpful.
    I miss the 1100 which had an LCD display
    It's something to do with holding the network button and powering off or pressing resume or something anyone know?

    Don't you hold the network button as you power up the printer?

    The button flashes, I think, when the thing is reset.

    Nearly but not quiete. After siiting through the agonising wait of 30 minutes just for one question on the HP online Techinical support chat dooferey he gave me this that works:

    1.Turn on the printer.
    2.Ensure that the communication cable (Network cable) is connected.
    3.Press and hold the Configuration Page button and press the Resume button 3 times while holding the configuration page button.
    4.Release the configuration page button.
    5.Wait for 2 minutes so that the printer poles the DHCP server in the network to get an IP Address.
    6.Print a configuration page pressing the Configuration Page button and check for the current setting of Config By and IP address that is assigned to the printer.
    Now the printer isnt picking up an address at all !!!!! Tried differnt ports etc blah blah.
    All I need today as it's industry day and they are all wanting to print out leaflets. That and the room they are in is full of p 650 which seem to trash their windows install every few weeks so theres about 5 machines not working either .............

    Mine just re-set themselves in one of my main out building training rooms. They have a ropy power supply and when it cuts and comes back on again for some reason they re-set themselves.

    Its still not picking up an IP on a port I know works as I tried it with my laptop. Gonna go get another one of the same model and plug it in here to see if it is the printer or me or both!!!

    Well I lugged the other printer all the way accross the room and did the reset sequence three times without a problem. Plugged the original one in and now its decided to work !!!!

    @ChrisH

    Don't worry, it's not just you suffering from temperamental kit today. I replaced a mainboard on a system as the keyboard socket wasn't working.

    Tested it in my office & the new board worked fine. Took it back to the suite and it didn't want to know. Back to office & it worked fine, worked fine in a different suite too.

    Failed with 4 different keyboards when plugged into it's original position, and yet when I eventually just swapped it with the system next to it, it farking worked perfectly.

    Damn thing nearly went off the top of our 6 floor tower-block!

    Yeah as long as you grab the bottom ones and not the top ones and have the bottom fall on your feet

    @ChrisH: I assumed that you left the bottom in situ since it seems to account for 99.9% of the entire unit's weight (may be slight exageration).
