Hi Tatum,

Not to worry - this is easily fixed. Normally, when you turn on the printer for the first time, you can set the language immediately by using the up and down arrow buttons to select English. If for some reason it didn't get set correctly the first time, here's the way to reset it:

1) Turn off the printer.
2) When it's off, press and hold the POWER button and the UP ARROW button at the same time.
3) When the printer turns on, the language settings will appear again. Use the up and down arrows to choose English, and press MENU to select it.

For your reference, the 924 user manual can be viewed at the following web address:

I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

How do I factory reset my Dell latitude D510 laptop to default settings

Step 1 Disconnect any connected peripherals from your laptop. This includes USB drives, printers or external mice and keyboards. Connect the computer to only the charger and connect the charger to a wall outlet.
Step 2 Restart the computer if already turned on, or start the computer.
Step 3 Press the "Ctrl" key and "F11" key simultaneously on the keyboard when the Dell logo appears on the screen. The Dell PC Restore by Symantec window appears.
Step 4 Click the "Restore" option. A warning message appears.
Step 5 Click the "Confirm" option. Allow the computer to revert to factory settings. According to Dell, this process normally takes from eight to 10 minutes to complete; a progress bar appears showing the time until completion.
Step 6 Click "Finish" once the process completes. The computer will restart in the same state it was when you first purchased the laptop.

Usb not working, mouse not working, monotor not working but computer will come on dell dimension c521

Two of the most occurring failures for a Desktop PC is;
1) The computer is dirty inside
2) The Power Supply is bad

Air flow is used to cool the hardware components inside the computer.
If 'Gunk' is built up on the cooling components of the cooling system, the cooling capacity drops tremendously.

['Gunk' = Dust, dirt, lint, hair, food crumbs, you name it ]

If the Processor overheats it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is a fail safe feature to keep the Processor from burning up.
(The Processor and the graphics chipset, are the two hardware components inside a computer that give off the most heat)

Your computer could be dirty inside, AND you could have a bad Power Supply. The Power Supply has Heatsinks inside.
Finned objects designed to absorb from whatever object they are placed against, and heat is then radiated away with the fins.
The small internal fan helps carry heat away from the Heatsink's fins.

If the fins of the Heatsink are clogged with Gunk, and the fan's blades, center hub, and surrounding cage (Shroud), are clogged, the Power Supply will overheat.

Heat = Wasted energy
The Power Supply will try to keep up with the call for power, but will eventually fail. (Hardware component failure inside the Power Supply)

1) If ALL of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what processor it is.

This is is why fans may spin, and/or LED's light, and/or the optical drive may/may not work.

Not enough power to turn the Processor on -> non-working computer.
No computer -> no video signal to the monitor.
No Signal, or monitor going into Sleep Mode, or Power Saver Mode ->
no video signal from computer.

Computer clean on the inside, (Q-tips, and can of compressed air for computers), see if there is a working computer that is unused, so you can borrow the Power Supply for a test unit.

(KNOWN to be working Power Supply, and compatible)

Or use a multimeter to check the 3 main voltages, coming from the Power Supply.
[3.3 Volts, 5 Volts, and 12 Volts. All are -> DC voltage.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC ]

An economical multimeter can be purchased for as little, as $5 to $12.
Available in a multitude of stores. An auto parts store is but one example.
