Accidentally selected the wrong language and this was the only way to reset back to english

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

This also worked with the 210D, thanks for info.

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.

You can also change the keyboard layout by pressing BACKSPACE + 0 + ON/OFF simultaneously.

This also fixes the problem if you have the wrong keyboard selected. Some machines have the QWERTY layout, others have the AZERTY layout (depending on region). It has been known for these to come out of the factory with the wrong region set, causing the wrong characters to appear on the screen (such as getting an "A" when you pressed "Q"). In this case, perform a factory reset, then select the appropriate language/region.
