Font problem with CITOH CI 5000 Dot Matrix Printer

I accidentally hit the setup button on my printer and now the font is too big. Could you tell me what setting to put the printer on to adjust the font? I need it to fit on 8"x11" perforated paper.

How do you perform a self test printout on the Citoh 5000

Turn the printer on, press the ONLINE button to take it offline. Press and hold the RESET button and press the QUIET/SETUP button. This puts the machine in configuration mode. Now press the FWD LN FEED button once or twice, then press the ONLINE button. This will cause the printer to print the current settings

IBM 6400 Dot Matrix Printer - Need Drivers for Windows XP

Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?

Hi, to perform a self-test on an Epson LX300 > start with the power switch off. Press LF/FF (middle switch), without releasing that button, power on the printer. If everything is ok it will print a sel-test page. To do a Hex Dump > start at power off, simultaneously press Font and the LF/FF buttons (left & middle buttons), then power on; to revert the printer to its factory default setting(s) > start in off position, press Font (left) button then power on. (Slightly different with an LX300+) Hope this works out for you. Cheers.
