Try printing the menu like this -With power on press the "Shift" tand "Select" button, a red menu light will pop up on the touch panel ! than press the "Print" button on the touch panel-this will print out the current settings of your printer.
Good luck

Lighting hit building. the oki 590 has no power. Fuse is ok. What would I look at next. Bob

Oki printers are known for boards going bad even from static discharge from your hands. More than likely you have blown the main board. I have replaced way too many Oki main boards, if you like the printer, replace the board. Otherwise get a lexmark line printer.

Font size

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.

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.
