Yealink Factory Reset

Yealink Factory Reset

This is only recommended after you have tried all other troubleshooting suggestions since the operation will delete all your personal configuration settings and reset them to the factory defaults. It is therefore advisable to have your phone system administrator backup your personalized settings before proceeding with a factory reset.

To  perform factory reset of the phone via the phone user interface:

  • When the phone is idle you can long press the OK key.
    • For T57W, or Touchscreen phones with no OK button, long press the  Yealink Factory Reset 1 (redial key) until “Reset to factory setting?” window appears.
  • The phone prompts you to reset the setting or not.
  •  Select OK  to confirm.
  • The screen prompts “Welcome Initializing…Please wait”.
