  • Fax data—Erase fax settings and data by selecting Wipe All Settings in the Configuration menu.
  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Hold down 2 and 6 while turning the printer on. Release the buttons only when the screen with the progress bar appears.

    The printer will restart several times during this process.

    Note:  Wipe All Settings securely removes device settings, solutions, jobs, faxes, and passwords from the printer memory.

    Back  > Exit Config Menu

The printer will perform a power‑on reset, and then return to normal operating mode.
