Reset the Printer to Factory Defaults

After making changes to some settings on your Dell printer you may find it has created problems and that it is difficult to correct such changes as the printer language, changes to distinctive fax ring patterns, or changes in default paper size.

In such situations, sometimes it can be simpler to correct the problem by resetting the printer's Non-Volatile Random Access Memory (NVRAM) to the original factory defaults.

When you restore a Dell printer to factory defaults, any data that has been added to the printer, such as fax phone lists or network settings, will be erased.
