Again, pressing the down arrow is not giving me a select language list. It is still in foreign language I can't read. The rest of your direction are understandable but I can't get a selection for English.
Tech Support Specialist: Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 3 years ago
With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer, and then wait for 30 seconds.
Press and hold the # ***** 3 buttons simultaneously, while plugging the power cord back in to the rear of the printer.
once is back on try the above steps again to change language by pressing down arrow
english is usually the 8th option
let me know if it comes up the screen to chnage language options

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The printer is two years old but only used 4 months out of the year as we live in Florida the other 8 months and I only use this
when I am in our apartment in Massachusetts. I will try again what you said about home button, etc
Tech Support Specialist: Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 3 years ago
yes sure
also if it shows in foreign langauge
let me know the options
i will try to use a translator to see if i can find the relevant english option to change it
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
It shows in foreign language except for two lines in which they say: printables and preferences
Tech Support Specialist: Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 3 years ago
let me know all the options you see in foreign language
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I only see what I mentioned above when I spelled them out to you except one word that says printables or preferences
Tech Support Specialist: Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 3 years ago
select preferences and check under that if you egt any option like language settings or display settings
if not try the below
While holding the Select key down(the one at the bottom left of display screen shows up as a -) , press the Power key and hold it down
once the printer turns off, turn it back on and check if you reach the screen showing various languages or come back to the same home screen
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
The same screen came back
Tech Support Specialist: Michelle, Computer Support Specialist replied 3 years ago
in that case the issue seems to be a firmware failure on the printer
we have tried all possibilities and sequences
the printer would either need a factory reset or a firmware upgrade
doing this procedure incorrectly may affect the main board of the printer
in such a case i would suggest to get the printer serviced through an authorised service center
you can open the below link to find the nearest service center
http://tinyurl.com/m569gqs
i hope you understand that since this a hardware chip program fault i could only try the options possible from the printer panel but cannot reprogram the chip as that can only be done by a service center

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
