Change the printer language to English

I just purchased the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus and am setting it up.  I did not see the language set up site and now my printer is in some foreign language that I can't read.  How do I reset the printer to English, especially since I can't understand the current language so I can't find the tool box?  Please help this beginner.

Re: Change the printer language to English

I have read what is written on how to change the language on the printer, I get to the tool icon, then everything else is in chinese and so I have no idea what is the preference choice. I have a HP officejetPro 8500A, please help, I can't understand a thing and I need to work this printer. Thanks. Also I have tried the 5th choice, then the second option which was offered as advice at my local staples store, but with no luck. Appreciate any help soon, thanks!
