I've been searching the web for a way to factory reset a Phaser 3260 without luck. HTTP was accidentally disabled and I'm unable to access the web interface. There isn't any information in the device documentation in regards to factory resetting this model. Any help would be appreciated.

It appears it can only be reset by service, so you won't find anything online about resetting it, just like the admin account, tech needs to wipe the device. I can't even find a 3260 Service manual anywhere.

I had the same problem with my 3260. It did not want to load CentreWare Intrnert Services like I disabled http but I did not. This printer also has wifi connection that only works if you disconnect lan cable so I did that. I connected my printer via usb cable as well. Than I installed Date: Oct 13, 2014 Version:Size: 177 MB Format: EXE Phaser_3260_Windows_Print_Driver_Installer_Package from here I selected to install Xerox Easy Wireless Setup and Easy Printer Manager. I created an open wifi network because anything with password does not want to connect to my phaser. Durring this connecting to wifi it will also set new network ip to your phaser via your dhcp. If you try to put in some manual network configuration it will not want to connect so just let it connect via dhcp. After this is done open Easy Printer Manager that is also available in that driver package. Go to Preferences - Application mode to Advanced and than go to Machine Settings and Network settings. Here you will now see what kind of IP did dhcp assign to your phaser. Put that IP into your browser and you should be enable to acess CnetreWare Internet Services and you can reset all your settings or just re-enable what you think broke it in the first place.
If you don't have a device in your hands and you did not try everything that there possibly is than your don't know anything. All the manuals and resurces won't help you if you don't just use your head.
So thank you for wasting my time trying to search for proper information on how to reset my phaser.
