Make sure you have the right driver (ie mx80). Only one or two drivers will work well in dos. It may also need a string added to the report to force it to go to the dos printer. Another thing that can affect size is the font size or font size must be placed in the header of the report.

Probably the monitor-chip on the board is working inproperly.

Consult the vendor or manufacuturer.

But before this, you may download new monitor driver from the manufacturer.

What driver are you using for this printer? Try loading a Epson LQ1050 driver and try again.

Font size


You can change the dfont size from the menu, but that setting afects the entire page of print. You different size fonts are controled from the codes sent to the printer from the software. Recreate the document, or create a document with a sample of that small print and see if the printer prints it.

How do i identify the font settings set in my printer


Your printer is designed to change font and pitch from the front panel. Just press the SEL/MENU button to take the printer offline. Then press the PRINT QUALITY button (to the right side of the panel) to make the lights switch to different fonts. Finally, press SEL/MENU to activate the changes and return the printer to online status. Be advised, these changes will not be permanent. To make a change permanent, you need to read the user's manual which I can email to you. Finally know that Windows does not pay attention to these settings, they are only goog in text applications such as DOS.

Printer font default


OKI printers tend to only print in the font size that you give it in the print options or the softwares printing properties that you are using, you will find that it just indicates the font size being printed if it changes back, this means it's set to 10 in the print properties or the actual programme print setting.
