If the printer is on the network, check to see if you can change / edit the Copy Defaults in the Embedded Web Server (EWS).


Examples- EWS Copy Defaults


NOTE:  Your printer EWS will likely look different from the examples.


Open your favorite browser > type / enter Printer IP address into URL / Address bar

Tab Copy > Settings > Default Settings





and / or

Older printer / Copy Defaults setup in EWS
