Re: Changing Language

I had the same problem with my Canon Smartbase MP730. Printer properties was in Portuguese, no matter how many times the driver was uninstalled and reinstalled.

By running Filemon from SysInternals I realized that when showing the printer properties files in the

C:\BJPrinter\CNMWINDOWS\Canon MP730 Printer\LanguageModules\0409\

folder were created. One of those files was CNMmhya.hlp. When clicking on it a Help-window with Portuguese text shows up - even though the code 0409 means English. This is a symptom of the problem. This file was copied from somewhere in the Windows folder.

To fix this annoying problem, the following worked for me:

-> Unplug the printer
-> Uninstall the driver
-> Rename the following folder with the portuguese language driver stuff which still remains, even after uninstallation of the driver:


(if you cannot rename it, reboot and try again). You should first check that there are indeed portuguese help-files in this folder. To do that, click on one of the .hlp files. If they are not your problem could be a different one, but it could also be that the files are stored nearby in the file system.

-> Reinstall the driver with the language of your choice. This time there won't be Portuguese files blocking proper installation of your new files.
-> Replug the printer to finish the driver installation

Now you should have finally gotten rid of the Portuguese (which may seem Spanish or Italian to some) text in Printer related windows.

My language on my printer is in German i need to change to English wondering if i could purchase a manual for my kexmark all in one printer model # 3350

No need to purchase one, lexmark offers an online version of the user guide on their website here:

Interestingly enough the User's Guide for the X3350 contains the wrong instructions for changing the language on the LCD display. The correct way to reset the language is as follows:

1.Power off the printer.

2.Hold down the power and + buttons simultaneously for five seconds. This will clear the language setting.

3.The first prompt you will see is English. If this is not the language required, toggle the + and - buttons to navigate to your preferred language.

4.Press the arrow button to select that language. The printer will save the new language setting.

Hope this helps!

Control panel menu is not in english.

Here are 2 ways of changing that. I changed mine to Portugese once. Had a heck of a time figuring out what the menu said LOL. Both proceses will change it back. To change the language used for the text on the front panel:
  1. On the front panel, with Menus highlighted, press the OK key.
  2. Scroll to the Printer Setup Menu by pressing the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key.
  3. Press the OK key.
  4. Scroll to Set Front Panel Language by pressing the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key.
  5. Press the OK key.
  6. Scroll to the desired language by pressing the Up Arrow or Down Arrow key.
  7. Press the OK key to save the selected setting
This is how you change it via your computer.
  1. Open a web browser on your pc.
  2. Type the IP address of the printer into the address area and press return.
  3. Select the Properties tab when the page is done loading.
  4. Look in the left hand column for the + General folder.
  5. Click on the + one time to open the folder.
  6. Under the general folder you will see a subfolder named Printer Defaults.
  7. Click on the Printer Defaults folder one time and you will see a new column open on the right side of the page named Printer Defaults.
  8. In the first box, User Preferences, you will see a header for; Set front panel language with the default setting.
  9. Click on the down arrow and a list of different languages will open.
  10. Select the desired language.
  11. Scroll down the page and under the last box you will see two tabs named Save Changes and Discard Changes.
  12. Select Save Changes one time.
  13. Once you have pressed Save Changes you should get a box that opens up and states; Request Acknowledged; No errors were reported.
  14. Look at the front panel of the printer and the language should be changed to the language you selected above.
