Change LCD screen back to English

The power went out and when I turned the printer on, The LCD display shows an unknown language. I can not find our manual. I would like to change it back to English. I have tried reseting the printer and it does not work. And I can't read the screen to even know whatever it will prompt me to do next, as I could before. Thanks,

Issue: How do I change the language setting of the LCD?
Solution: Change the display language settings (MP170)
LCD Appears in Japanese (or other foreign language) Upon powering on the machine for the first time, the LCD will prompt to select a display language. If a language other than English is selected, the setting can be changed by following these steps.

  1. Ensure the machine is powered on.
  2. Press the <Menu> button as many times as necessary to display [SYSTEM SETTINGS].
    1. From the Copy mode standby screen, press <Menu> 7 times.
    2. From the Scan mode standby screen, press <Menu> 1 time.
    3. From the Memory card mode standby screen, press <Menu> 6 - 12 times.
  3. Use the right arrow twice to select [OTHERS] and then press the <OK> button.
  4. Use the right arrow three times to select [LANGUAGE SETTING] and then press the <OK> button.
  5. Use the right or left arrow to select the appropriate language and then press <OK>. Choose from the following language settings.
    2. ENGLISH
    3. GERMAN
    4. FRENCH
    5. ITALIAN
    6. SPANISH

I struggled because I couldn't read the language that my printer had changed to (though I could tell it wasn't any of the ones listed above), so I couldn't see the words "System Settings". But I was able to reset it "blind" with a modification of Sheba111's Solution #2. After turning on the power, press the Copy button, then press the Menu button 7 times, then right arrow 2 times, then OK, then right arrow 3 times, then OK.

At this point, the instructions in Solution 2 are not quite enough. The languages aren't numbered and aren't readable, and the language displayed is the current one, so how do you know which one to select? You have to press the left arrow key until it no longer displays. That gets you to the beginning of the list. Then press the right arrow key, counting each press, until you have pressed it the number of times required to select your language, the press OK. For example, to get it back to English, I had to press the left arrow key several times until it stopped displaying. That got me to Japanese. I then pressed the right arrow key once to move to English (though I couldn't read what was displayed), pressed OK, and it changed immediately to English display. Also note that there are more languages (at least for my MP170) than Sheba111 lists, though the first six are those listed, in the same order.

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?

Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?

Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

We have forgotten the Administration password for our EStudio 350 & 450. Is there any way of resetting? Thanks Ben

The default password is either 12345 or 123456.
If neither of those work then, turn machine off then power on while pressing the 0 & 8 keys then enter 263, then press Start. It will then display the Admin Password.

HP printer psc 2210 all in one

Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all work in most cases. Good luck.
