In this article, we are going to cover factory resetting the Yealink devices. Factory Reset can be useful when a phone stops behaving as it should or if you encounter any errors that can't be resolved. It is also handy if you purchase the handset second hand, or plan to sell the handset and want to wipe the credentials.
Different models have slightly different methods of Factory Reset, that will be covered below.
Resetting Yealink Devices to the Factory Settings Via Web Interface
Restoring to Yealink's default configuration can be handy when troubleshooting. This action erases any configuration which the user has made allowing you to configure the device from scratch. To reset to the factory settings:
1. Log in to the device's web-configuration
2. Select the 'Settings' tab
3. Click on 'Upgrade' from the left menu
4. Click the 'Reset to Factory' button. Please note that it may take a couple of minutes.
