The NVM is a nonvolatile memory that stores the printer settings even after power off. Initializing the NVM will revert the value for each item of the Network Setup menu to default.

WARNING: Reset Defaults re-initializes network data stored in nonvolatile memory (NVM), including TCP/IP addressing, login names, passwords and more.

NOTE: The settings in the Network Setup menu cannot be set when entering this menu during printing.

CAUTION: Modifications to the Reset Defaults settings should be performed by the System Administrator. Incorrect settings may cause the printer to become unavailable.
