Many printers will print a "self-test" or "configuration" page when
holding the "online" button for 5-10 seconds.

I suppose if someone a decade ago created a login ID and password for
the web interface that the OP ignores, that could spell trouble.
Pretty sure most printers have a "forcibly reset" button combo too. On
my brother, it's "press and hold the big button on the corner whilst
turning on, hold for ~20 seconds".
Not this one. Factory reset is described in the manual, requires IP connection

IIRC you know it's worked when it prints out a "default config" report.
