OKIpage 10i does not accept A4, and wants 'Letter'
My okipage 10i wants to use tray 1, which i have set up to use A4 paper. When i print a test page (from the printer controls), it works. When i print a test page, or any other sort of page through windows, the printer wants to use 'letter' which is to be put in tray one...
How do i tell it to print on A4, from tray 1?

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!

Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menu next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
Sometimes if your printer or the program you are printing from has the paper source set to "Letter" it waits for you to press the continue key on the printer which allows you to insert headed note paper before printing.
If it is set to letter, change it to A4 and this should solve your problem
You may need to change this in both the printer settings and/or each program from which you are printing
Agreed. The printer would appear to be holding this job. Have seen this on much newer kit but there is no way of deleting it. Even if you reset the eeprom that data will not be cleared. The only fix is a new main board and that's well obsolete. So unfortunately that's really the end of the printer. Wish I could of been of more help. one thought though have to tried it on another pc? If its the same then yes its the printer but if no then you need to delete everything in c:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS then Delete all of the .SPL and SHD files you find in this folder (do not delete the PRINTERS folder, just its contents)
here is a link to download the user manual for your printer. There will be a section on how to properly install the toner cartridge. The manual is quite handy to have and read through, since this enables you to better understand the functioning and maintenance of your printer.
