A student has reset the menu to Russian.

My company uses nothing but HP printers some are connected to the network while others are locally connected to a computer. I have worked with this exact model.

First, the easiest thing to try is to power cycle the printer. Hold down the button to turn off then turn back on. You can also unplug it from its power source then plug back in.

Power cycling this printer should reset the language to default (English) or it will let you select the language when it comes back on. If that doesn't work then you can try to change it using the installed software.

Considering the fact that someone accidentally changed the language, I am assuming this printer is connected directly to a computer that you all have access to and this is not a network printer.

If this is a local printer (connected directly to the computer via USB or parrallel port) then you should have an HP Toolbox app or some other program that allows you to configure software related settings for the device. Open this tool and you should find an option for the language. This may not be available, depending on how the installation was handled (if it was installed using the CD provided by the manufacturer or installed using downloaded drivers).

Try this out and let me know if it helps.

My printer for some reason is in do I change it back to English? Also the screen is messed up...sometimes it is dark and other times it is too light to see anything...without anyone...

You have 2 different issues. First let me address the dark and light screen. There is a known problem with that machine screen. Call 1-800-835-6100 and Xerox will send you a free replacement.
Here is how to change the language.

To select the default language on the Control Panel:
  1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Printer Setup] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Control Panel Setup], and then press the [OK] button.
  3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Language], and then press the [OK] button.
  4. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select the required language, and then press the [OK] button.
  5. Press the [Back] button, located to the left of the 'Up' and 'Down' buttons, three times to return to the Main Menu.
To select the default language using CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS):
  1. Open an Internet web browser on the workstation.
  2. Enter the IP Address of the printer in the Address field, and then press [Enter] on the keyboard. The CentreWare Internet Services window will be displayed.
  3. Click on [Properties]. The Properties window will be displayed
  4. Click on the [General] folder on the left, and then select [Printer Defaults].
  5. Under the User Preferences section, select the language from the Set Control Panel Language pull-down.
  6. Click on the [Save Changes] button.
  7. Click on the [X] in the upper, right corner to close the window.
