And then it’s gonna just ask you your standard questions that you had, it’s not gonna make you do the it’s not gonna put you make you put in the setup cartridges.

So it’s just going to ask for the country the language that you want, you’re gonna confirm time and everything like that. So I’ll just turn the printer back on, and show you what it does.

So here we go we’re gonna select English in my case confirm, I’m in the United States confirm, then we’re gonna confirm the date and time, looks about right an hour, and then we’re gonna do the continue set up.
