Hi there! My name is***** am a computer professional with over 15 years of experience with both Mac and Windows computers, phones, tablets, and printers. It would be my pleasure to assist you with this. Here's how you can access the support menu:

  • Turn OFF your printer.
  • Wait for 10 Seconds before turning it ON again.
  • Just as the printer turns ON, press the back button (arrow icon) on the front panel of theprinter “4 times”.
  • If you did it correctly, the support menu should appear

Navigate through the menu until you find the option to reset the printer. Select this option, then choose the appropriate type of reset for your needs. You can choose from a partial reset, semi-full reset and a full reset. After you make your selection the reset process should begin.
