How to get English on Canon B160 display

I have a Canon B160 fax machine which only displays menus etc. in a Scandinavian langusge.
The handbook assumes that the power plug has never been inserted in its instruction to change the language.
Has anyone any idea how I can revert to the situation as on delivery, eg. factory default?
I have the cover off and tha main PCB has no obvious jumpers or switches, but there are two switches on what I assume is the power board.

Is there somesort of backup battery that can be removed which will allow you to cancel whatever is in the memory?

How do I change the display language of the fax B160/B180C in an other language?


Solutions
You'll find this in the "System Settings" of the fax B160/B80C.

Press Function.
Press Data Registration.
Use the arrows until you see "System Settings" on the display.
Press Set.
Use the arrows until you see "Display Language" on the display.
Press Set.
Use the arrows to select the language you want.
Press Set.
Press Stop.

This is also explained in the user manual of your fax.

To Devil Monkey.
No, there is no battery of any sort on either board.
Thanks for the suggestion, though.

To Beeuuem.
Thanks for the info.
I have checked, and it works, the only(!) problem is that I can't understand the language when it might say "System settings" or "Display language".
It is such an unusual language to me that it is impossible to even guess when I'm at the right place to proceed.
Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

Don't know if this will be of any help.


System settings = system infattningarna (Swedish)

Norwegian = system innfatningene


Display language = uppvisning språk (Swedish)

Norwegian = utfoldelse omgangsspråk

To BEEUUEM
Thanks for your latest.
The language is not Skandinavian from your words.
It must be a Eastern European language from the accents used.
I'm still trying!
