How to Reset Brother Printer? [All Models]

There are three easy methods to reset your Brother printer.

Use the Touch Panel

Mine has touch panel so I can easily reset it via touch.

  • If your printer has a touch screen, open Settings and launch the Initial Setup menu inside it.
  • Click Reset and on the next screen, choose what you want to reset. Like the Network settings, Fax settings or All Settings.
  • Confirm it and the reset process will begin.

Using Printer’s Webpage

For printers without touch screen, get to know the printer’s IP address first. Once you know it,

  • Type the IP on the address bar of any web browser and hit Enter.
  • If there’s any login password, enter it and access the printer’s webpage.
  • Now click the Administrator tab > click Reset Menu on the left hand side > choose Reset All Settings > Yes.

Using the Model-specific Steps

  • If neither of the above two option seems to work for you, visit the user manual download page of Brother and download the manual for your model.
  • You can see the model-specific reset instructions in that manual.
  • Simply follow the steps there and you’ll get the job done.
  • For instance, this is the instructions I got in the manual to reset my home printer. You’ll get it too.
