Procedure: How to change initial setup configuration

IMPORTANT! Before you begin, it is important to know that previous MFP selections will be retained in an effort to prevent re-entry of settings such as SMTP server and Fax Station
If you need to disable or enable any function (feature) at a later time, perform the following: 
  1. From the operator panel, select Menus > Settings > General Settings > Run Initial Setup > Select Yes > Submit, or from
    the Optional embedded web server: Settings > General Settings > Run Initial Setup > Submit.
  2. Reboot or turn the MFP off and on. 
  3. Follow setup steps through Language, Country, Time Zone until you reach Functions to Enable.
  4. Place or remove a checkmark next to the primary functions of interest.
    NOTE: If you remove a function, its corresponding LCD icon will be removed. 
  5. Click Continue and repeat the Step 4 for the additional home buttons.  
  6. Click Continue to finish the initial setup.
