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.

You have the Printer emulation set incorrectly. I think it comes as IBM as default and you should try Epson instead. Its a trial and error thing but am sure emulation is incorrect.

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.

Only printing tasks from some computers


Print the Menu Setting out on printer and menu setting out on pc. Match sure emulation matcheds on both sides. If using serial make sure serial settings match on both sides. If parallel, check the bois on the PC, change parallel port type to EPP instead of ECP or SPP.

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

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.
