To reset the Serial number or Page Count on a HP Printer follow the below steps.

Connect the printer via USB and note the Virtual USB Port Name, it will look something like”USB001″.

Download the file https://www.theictguy.co.uk/d/Reset_HP.pjl to the root of your system drive C:\, do not change the filename, edit the file using notepad, NOT WORDPAD, enter the serial number or page count, if you want to set one but not the other leave the one you do not wish to change blank.

  1. I want to try a few things before I give my HP printer the ‘ol Officespace treatment, but the link to Reset_HP.pjl seems to be dead. Any chance you’ve still got it around? I’d gladly click that ‘buy me a coffee’ button 🙂

  2. Can this reset my Hp Deskjet 3835 printer, How do I change the default print mode from monochrome to color (since I have installed a CISS kit).

  3. God morning

    I tried this on my HP Colour Laser 150 . I’m trying to reset the counters for the image drum as it has stopped working at 16000 pages and insists I buy a new one even though print quality is still great. This is a software redundancy programmed by HP which is frankly criminal (but that is another rant). I have tried a few things to reset the eeprom on board without success. I wonder if you have a newer version of the reset file which would address this issue.
    Definitely worth a coffee or two.

    1. Unfortunately I don’t have a newer version I’m sorry, if you do find a solution however please let me know and I would love you put the fix up for you, obviously credits would be attributed to yourself.
