To obtain the best print quality and longest durability, it is key that your printer it set-up with the optimum settings. Always use original OKI consumables to secure print quality and durability. We recommend the following settings for your OKI A3 printer:

Remember to register your printer at the OKI website within 30 days for 3-year on-site warranty.
Choose the PCL-driver (Not the PS-driver) for labels, signs and banners, when you connect the printer to your computer
Set the dial in the bottow right corner to A4. Turn the printer on and off in the bottom left corner.
Feed the media on the front via the MP-tray on the top or tray 1, 2 etc on the bottom:
Use the MP tray for shorter print runs and the feeding of A3 signs and all banners.
Lift the grey handle up for feeding and when ready, press it down to lock the sheets in ready for printing.
Most media should be fed long edge leading – here example with loop labels:
To the left the grey handle is open to insert the labels; to the right closed when the labels are in place:
Here is an example of feeding from tray 1 of loop labels:
