Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

Use an Internet browser to open the Embedded Web Server (EWS), and then change the language setting. The EWS is available only for printers that are set up on a wired (Ethernet) or wireless network.

  1. Print a Network Configuration Page.

    1. On the printer control panel, swipe the display to the left, and then touch Setup.

    2. Touch Tools.

    3. Swipe up on the display, and then touch Network Configuration Report.

      A Network Configuration Page prints.

  2. On the Network Configuration Page, find URL for the embedded web server.

  3. From a computer connected to your network, type the entire URL into an Internet browser. If the webpage remains blank, try a different Internet browser.

  4. In the EWS, click the Settings tab.

  5. Click Preferences, and then click International.

  6. Under Control Panel Language, select the desired control panel language.

  7. Click Apply, wait until the changes are confirmed, and then close the EWS.

  8. Turn your printer off and then on.

If these steps did not resolve the issue, continue to the next step.  Change the language through the control panel.

  1. Turn your printer off and then on.

  2. On the printer control panel, swipe the display to the left, and then touch the Setup  icon.

  3. Touch the first option that displays on the printer control panel. This option is the Preferences menu.

  4. Touch Language. Depending on your printer, the language selection is first or second option that displays on the printer control panel.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
