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.

Memory low message on hp laserjet pro 200

see HP LaserJet Pro Printers Memory is Low message displayed on the control...

HP LaserJet Pro Printers - 'Memory is Low' message displayed on the control panel HP LaserJet Pro - Troubleshoot 20.xx (memory failure) and 21.xx (print failure) error messages (ID: emr_na-c05049204)
HP Customer Support page and ensure the printer is running the latest available firmware. Print a Configuration Report from the control panel of the printer to check the installed firmware version.
  • If the printer supports expandable memory, you can install additional memory in the form of a DIMM. Check the printer's User Guide to see if it supports additional memory.
  • Break complex print jobs into smaller jobs that contain fewer pages.
  • If the printer is an MFP, delete stored faxes to increase available memory. Go to this document for instructions: HP LaserJet Pro MFP - Delete faxes from memory (ID: emr_na-c03264743)
  • Power cycle the printer to delete stored fonts or macros. It is possible to download fonts or macros in a way that power cycling the printer will not delete them; see Appendix A - Memory Allocation.
  • Changing some software and/or print driver settings might result in a less complex print job.
  • Use a different print driver. For example, a PostScript print driver will typically result in a more complex print file. If possible, try sending the file with a PCL6 or UPD printer driver.
  • Adobe PDF files can sometimes be very complex. Go to this document if printing PDF files is slow or resulting in memory out messages: HP LaserJet - Print job is slow or hangs in the print queue when printing Adobe PDF files (ID: emr_na-c04071740)
  • If the printer is connected via a network, try sending the file connected by USB cable only. This will eliminate possible network issues that are taking printer memory.
  • Appendix A
    Memory Allocation Utilities or jobs that you download to the product sometimes include resources (for example, fonts, macros, or patterns). Resources that are internally marked as permanent remain in the product memory until you turn the product off.
    Use the following guidelines if you use the page description language (PDL) ability to mark resources as permanent. For technical details, see an appropriate PDL reference for PCL or PS.
    • Mark resources as permanent only when it is absolutely necessary that they remain in memory while the product is turned on.
    • Send permanent resources to the product only at the beginning of a print job and not while the product is printing.
    NOTE: Overusing permanent resources or downloading them while the product is printing might affect product performance or the ability to print complex pages.

    To work around this issue, reduce the complexity of your PostScript print job. For example, set the TrueType Font Download option to Automatic, Outline, or Bitmap as follows:
    1. In Control Panel, open the Printers (or Printers and Faxes) folder.
    2. Right-click your PostScript printer, and then click Properties.
    3. Click Printing Preferences, click Layout, and then click Advanced.
    4. Double-click PostScript Options, and then click TrueType Font Download Option.
    5. In the True Type Font Download Option box, click Automatic. If Automatic is already selected, click Outline or Bitmap.
    6. Close the Printer Properties dialog box, and then close Control Panel.
    hope this helps you.. please vote.. thanks

    When we set the font it prints for about 2 pages , then returns to the 17 font. We need the 10 font to be able to read the huge amount of items printed. Any way to get it to stay on the 10 font?

    You didn't mention which document type or from which program you are trying to print but the commands for the printer are normally embedded invisibly in the document and sent to the printer to accomplish font changes, punctuation, etc.
    We might have a better answer and a suggestion if you comment back to this thread with the name/version of the program that produced the document.

    My hp printer m1005 show error 20 and some time error 17. Plz. give me solution.

    A 20 error is insufficient memory.
    The device received more data than can fit
    in the available memory. You might have
    tried to transfer too many macros, soft
    fonts, or complex graphics.

    Touch OK to print the transferred data
    (some data might be lost), and then simplify
    the print job or install additional memory.

    As for the 17 error?...I can't find it in the manual.

    How to set it 20 characters per inch

    Where do you want to set the font?

    Do you want the font as the default font on the printer or do you want the application to call the font?

    Application wise, to get a 20 cpi character font, you need to place the font change into the document.

    Remember, even if you set the default font as a 20 cpi, if the application calls for a 10 cpi font like Courier, the printer will change the default font to the 10 cpi font for the life of the current print job unless there are additional font calls within the print job.

    The software (Application always overcomes default settings)

    Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.

    Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
    Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!

    Zebra printer 140xilll - Too many print jobs?

    It does sound like you have a memory overload when you send the 2nd print job. Each label is getting sent to the printer and filling up the memory. Make sure you are using the printer resident fonts and not a regular windows font. The windows fonts get sent down as graphics and take up memory. What zebra is saying to do is store the format of the label in the printer memory and then just send down the information that changes. For example if you were printing a UPS label the basic format of the label is the same but things such as the addresses and tracking # would change.

    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.

    Change papersize from LTR to LGL

    Turn the printer off for about 10 - 15min ( or even longer ) by removing the power cord.

    I had left it unplugged overnight as it was late and had given up on fixing this annoying fault. Once plugged back in it was working fine.
