Resetting the HP M1005 Scanner Error 12

On HP printers, a "cold reset" causes the printer to return to its factory default settings, which among other things, can cause it to try and bring back its configuration information from a BOOTP server. A cold reset is needed if the printer's setting has been corrupted or changed using the front panel. 

There are 3 primary procedures:

Original Procedure

  • Turn the printer off.
  • While pressing down the "Go" or "Online" button, turn the printer on.
  • Release the button when the printer display prompts "Cold Reset" or "Resetting."

New Procedure

  • Turn on the printer.
  • Watch the control panel.
  • When the memory starts counting, press and hold the green Select button. Continue to hold the Select button until all three Control Panel LED's are illuminated.
  • Release the Select button.
  • The control panel displays 'SELECT LANGUAGE'.
  • Press the Down Arrow button until the control panel displays 'COLD RESET'.
  • Press Select. The printer performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence, where finally it has been reset.
