Turn the printer on and then press and hold the small pin hole button at the back of the printer for 10 seconds. A status sheet should print out notifying that the printer is resetting to factory default. Do not turn off the printeruntil the reset has finished.
Next, press and hold the small pin hole button at the back of the printer for 3 seconds.
The printer will print a Status Sheet with the IP Address and settings on it. The IP Address that prints out should be 192.168.192.168 like the example attached.
