Ok, it is not giving the normal options.

When you go to the paper settings on the printer, what is it set to?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'm sorry Richard but I have only tray settings and no paper settings

Thanks

It is the internal memory that has faulted, this is why you are not getting the correct settings and that it reverts out of A3

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
