Had to google question after I accidentally set the wrong language. RIDICULOUS!!!!!! Wrong info in manual about how to change language.

The reset works, however:

If you get stuck on a different language, press the Menu button twice. It will be on the "wrench" folder and the first screen is label width. You'll see 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 no matter the language. Arrow down and choose the correct language from that list. Voila!

I accidentally put Estonian and had to experiment.

The troubleshooting and reset worked great I googled the model & make of the label maker to change the font size bigger and it worked like a charm..Thank you very much ..very pleased as it saved me hours of lab work for my university course . 👏🏼👏🏼👍
