Brother MFC-L2710DW printer - change interface language

Brother MFCL2710DW


Brother MFC-L2710DW printer purchased in Italy and user can’t find a way to change printer menu language from Italian to English.
According to the Brother support website, language can be changed in Menu > Initial Setup > Local Language. However, this printer does not have a Local Language option in the Initial Setup.


It appears that certain Brother models are locked to a single language, but it is still possible to change it in Maintenance Mode.

Please follow the below instructions at your own risk. This may not work as expected with different Bother models or even different firmware versions. If the country code doesn’t look like in the table below, don’t proceed!

  • Put printer into Maintenance mode:
    Menu > Start (Green button) > Up (4 times)
  • Enter code 74
    It will display the current language code. In our case it was 0A16 (Italy)
  • Change the language code 0A04 for the UK. For different languages see the table below.
  • Enter code 99 to exit Maintenance mode

    I bought the MCF-L2710DN Brother Printer and during unboxing I discovered that the LCD display was in Italian language. After translation, I found that there is no option to change the language on LCD display. So I found the alternate option through "Maintenance" mode.

    After change the language into maintenance mode to english (option 0904), printer lost the IP communication, and also lost the option to change the IP address on LCD display. Also, when I restore the connection with USB, I found that printer identified itself as another model (DSP something).

    I am in dead-end.

    Do you have any alternate to share?

      First of all, thank you very much for the prompt reply.

      This is the DN model and has different country codes (although it has the very same problem). No "A" is available, even when I tried the #1 key-stroke (first # and then 1 in the second digit position). 

      Thanks also for the link. Although it was for DW model, it describes exactly the same symptoms and I had already done what they mention (as I wrote you yesterday plus the "#1" for "A", that I tried today).

      I guess I reached the dead-end indeed. Do you know any official Brother's link to report my issue?

      *** Last minute update.

      I tried once more to change to 0904 code, and when I search once again the LCD network option, this time it was there(!!).

      Printer this time identified itself correctly, when I got-in the browser in the IP address I gave to.

      So, problem solved, without having a clue what it caused it initially.
