The Lexmark 2500 is an all-in-one printer that can print, scan and copy documents. It allows users to customise the settings. If you want to reset the Lexmark 2500 series printer to the original factory default settings—perhaps because your printer is not functioning properly—you can do so right from your PC. This method works for Windows 2000, Vista and XP computers.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Start" button at the bottom of your desktop. Select "Settings" then "Printers" (or "Printers and Faxes").

  2. 2

    Right-click on the icon for your Lexmark 2500 Series printer.

  3. 3

    Choose "Printing Preferences" from the menu and click on "Save Settings."

  4. 4

    Click on "Restore," then "Factory Settings (Defaults)." Click "OK" and close the window. The printer will restore the factory default settings, the display will reload and bring you back to the main settings menu.

Tips and warnings

  • You cannot delete any factory defaults from the menu.
