Z - Reset Procedure

Z - Reset Procedure

To reset the settings saved in your Z's firmware to their defaults, follow the steps below.
  1. Unplug your Z.
  2. Hold down the main left and right mouse buttons.
  3. Plug your Z back in while continuing to hold both mouse buttons.
  4. A countdown should be displayed on the OLED screen along with the logo backlight flashing red and the mouse vibrating.
  5. Continue holding down both mouse buttons until the countdown completes.
Note: If the Swiftpoint driver is running when you do this, your custom settings will be loaded back onto the Z immediately. So if you want to test your Z with the default settings exit the Swiftpoint Driver before performing these steps. Or backup your profiles to a file then use the "Clear and Reset Settings in Driver and Mouse" option from the Swiftpoint Drivers main menu.
