Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!

This is sometimes just the toner not being even in the cartridge. It can also be a problem with the image drum or fuse wire unit.
If you take the toner cartridge out and gent shake it side to side this will redistribute the toner in the cartridge. Put it back in and do a test print to see if that fixed your problem This should only happen when the toner gets low. You can get this from moving the printer printing most things along one side and other pretty normal stuff.
If after this the image is still light on the one side then it can a problem with the image drum or fuse wire. they are just as easy to replace as the toner unit but tend to be worth more. The wire is not that bad but still can be a few $$ and is rarely the problem. If it looks like the problem is in the image drum then I'd check out replacement cost of a laser printer. There are some pretty capable printers selling for pretty cheap these days. An image drum is worth about $125 and up and the fuse kit about $120
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!
