Home Hub 2

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks Fred,
On the back of it is a reset button. Using a paperclip, and while it is on, hold the reset button in for 10 seconds, then release.
Wait 5 minutes then re-run the installation for the printer and tell me if it now connects.
Let me know the results please

The reset button did not work

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
How do you mean it did not work? You could not find the reset button? You could not push it in?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

The reset button is inside a square hole at the back. I tried using a paper clip and also a screwdriver blade but neither had any effect.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Did the lights on the Hub go out and then slowly come on one by one when you did this?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

No there was no effect on the Hub lights. I have just spotted a very faint symbol next to the square hole at the back. I do not know what it means but it looks rather like a three pronged fork with small circles on the end of the splines.

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, on the side of it, Find the recessed 'Reset to Defaults' button on the side of your Hub
Like its circled in this picture.

Let me know when you have found it please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Found the "reset to defaults" button on the Hub, operated it wjth the end of a paper clip. Lights on the hub went out and recovered one by one. It had no effect on the printer. Does it need time to have effect?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
yes, about 5 minutes, then run the installation for the printer.
Let me know the results please
