Reset HP DeskJet 3630 Printer Instructions

If your HP 3630 series printer ever behaves strangely, do a factory reset.  Or, when you need to update its wireless network settings, you also perform a hard reset.  Resetting restores the 3630 to factory default settings.  Thus, once the HP DeskJet 3630 factory reset ends, you can set it up anew.  E.g. You can enter new printer settings, to reconnect it to a WiFi network. Or, connect it to a different network.

So in this demo, we run this on the HP DeskJet 3630 printer  scanner, copier, all-in-one printer.
