Reset and clear a HP ProCurve 2510G-48



I'm tring to reset to factory a HP ProCurve 2510G-48 but i cant.


I read the manual :


To execute the factory default reset, perform these steps:
1. Using pointed objects, simultaneously press both the Reset and Clear
buttons on the front of the switch.
2. Continue to press the Clear button while releasing the Reset button.
3. When the Self Test LED begins to flash, release the Clear button.
The switch will then complete its self test and begin operating with the
configuration restored to the factory default settings.

 I do this, but when i try to connect with the RS232 via COM 3 with this option :

■ Baud rate: 9600
■ No parity
■ 8 Bits
■ 1 stop bit
■ No flow control

 i have no response.


Can i have some advice, please ?




PS: Sorry for my english, i speak french :)

Do you get any messages on the serial port when you power cycle the switch? If it appears to go through the self tests (e.g. flash LEDs in sequence) and you have no messages on the serial port, then I would assume that your serial configuration has a problem.
