OKIpage 10i does not accept A4, and wants 'Letter'

My okipage 10i wants to use tray 1, which i have set up to use A4 paper. When i print a test page (from the printer controls), it works. When i print a test page, or any other sort of page through windows, the printer wants to use 'letter' which is to be put in tray one... How do i tell it to print on A4, from tray 1?

Re: OKIpage 10i does not accept A4, and wants 'Letter'

Maybe you won't be able to use A4 paper, which I think is 3/4 inch longer than letter-size 8 1/2 x 11, according to the sizing inside the paper tray of my OKIPAGE 10e. My computer, using Windows 98, doesn't list OKIPAGE 10e among the printers I can use with my computer. Yet, Windows 98 has incorrectly identified my printer as Okidata OL-600e for some reason. I'm surprised my printer works at all with Windows 98. Thanks for detailing your question as "when I print a test page (from the printer controls), because I was unaware I could print a test page using printer controls, so I started pressing anything that looked like an electronic button on the top of my printer. I believe this trial and error eventually helped me to get rid of an unwanted 1 inch wide bar, from top to bottom of 8 1/2 x 11 pages about 2 inches from the right-hand-side of my pages. This was progressively getting worse. I thought I was going to have to buy a new printer. I bought this printer used, and without instruction booklet, so I used your info. about printer controls and started pressing electronic buttons. It's amazing, because after I made about 35 copies, now the annoying 1 inch wide black bar is gone!

Hello sir, how to take print on A4 page? please help me

Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
  • Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menumag-glass_10x10.gif next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
  • Step 6.Press "Print" to print the photograph.

    OKI 24DX - Press ONLINE button to print each page

    you have to open your printer icon in CONTROL PANEL


    select PREFERENCES

    under SET UP and MEDIA size change it to A4

    I think this might help you. I'm guessing that you have the wrong size paper selected. And each time the computer needs you to confirm you want to print with a different size paper

    I wouldn't phone OKI help line..I was on hold for 15 minutes, then just gave up.

    My printer will only print from bypass tray. Why?

    It may be something to do with the paper size settings on printer driver, document print settings or page setup. If for example the computer thinks the paper size is Letter, and the paper in Tray 1/2/3 is A4, it won't print.

    Paper does not feed from Tray 1.

    Check your printer settings.

    Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.

    If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem

    You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing

    Tray 1- load plain letter


    On printer check media/paper type tray 2 or 3 is plain and tray 2/3 is set for letter paper size too, via printer control panel. Also check under paper handling other options for tray 1, also on tray 2 and 3, I think there is a blue little round switch on left should be set as letter not custom.

    Some paper types cannot be feed from anywhere else but tray1/bypass ie labels/laminate/card stock.

    Check print driver on pc has tray 3 option installed and is not set as default to print to manual bypass/tray 1

    light flashing cause printer wants paper type/size that it "thinks" it hasn't got in tray 2/3

    If that dont cover back

    Keep getting "11 load letter in tray 1" message

    Are the print jobs being sent to printer all the same page size?

    Are they all print jobs sent letter page size and your printers cassettes are set for A4 or something?

    Your printer is asking for letter size paper, because any paper it has is not set to letter  and document that it is trying to print has been sent as that size.

    Check what options you have on print driver on pc as far as Tray defaults, paper type and size settings

    Check printer settings via its keypad as to tray defaults, paper size set for each tray and paper type, some printers have paper size switchs on their trays too.
