Initializing Printer Settings

You can initialize the printer settings.


  • When using the printer over wireless LAN, note that initialization erases all network settings on the printer, and printing operation from a computer over network may become impossible. To use the printer over network, perform setup with the Setup CD-ROM or perform it according to the instructions on our website.

Follow the procedure below to initialize the printer settings.

  1. Make sure that the printer is turned on.

  2. Press the Setup button.

    The (Setup) icon and "1" appear on the LCD.

  3. Press the + button until "C" appears on the LCD.

  4. Press the Color button or the Black button.

  5. All the printer settings are initialized. The administrator password specified by Remote UI or IJ Network Device Setup Utility reverts to the default setting.

    After resetting, perform setup again as necessary.


  • You cannot set the following setting items back to the default:

    • The current position of the print head
    • CSR (Certificate Signing Request) for encryption method (SSL/TLS) setting
