Printers don't usually speak.... you mean the display is showing in another language on the screen of the printer? Does it still print normally from the computer? My guess is no, but please confirm. Usually whenever language changes out of the blue like that it is indicative of hardware failure in the printer itself, which is very bad news.
Thanks Tim

    Ok that's a good sign for sure, but is still very odd. I'm guessing it used to display in English just fine? And just changed out of the blue one day to another language? The hardest part is you are going to need to navigate these menus in whatever language it is in, but I can help you. What is the make / model of the printer?

    Hmm, still searching for how to do it here, man oh man these Dell printers have had a bad week this week, this is at least the 20th one I've seen one weird problems. I think it may just be a software glitch, can you tell what language it is? Is it using roman alphabet characters? If so please type a sample of what it is saying here in your comment. If not roman characters can you tell what character set it's using? Cyrillic, asian..?

I have the nuvi 205W series in a foreign language and can't get it back to english

  • Press TOOLS (The spanner symbol in the right bottom corner of the screen that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP)
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol) on models that don't have a SETTINGS symbol.
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips symbol)
This takes you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
Press each in turn. The VOICE will give you the option to select a voice by name and country. Select one that's from an English speaking country to get the voice prompts in English.

Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.

Press KEYBOARD and Select English. This should solve your problem.

Change Language to English

All language localizations (except English) are applications that one can run to change the basic calculator messages and menus. If one day your calculator starts speaking in tongues, you can wonder at the miracle or you can press the APPS key and find the foreign language APPs (Français, Espanol, Italiano, Deutch, Suomi, Dansk, Norsk, etc.) Run one of the language APP. The configuration screen of the language APP opens giving you the option to set the language
  1. to the one of the APP, or
  2. to English.
Press 2 to select English and ENTER.

Hope it helps.

It worked with the 2600n Color LaserJet by having the printer on first (shows the foreign language), then hold down the green button and turn it off and then on again while still holding the button.

Doing this will back to English
