Question about OKI MICROLINE 320 Turbo Matrix Printer
Hi. We have a couple of these printers. They work fine when printing full pages, but when we use forms where the information has to be printed on certain lines of the page, over a period of time the registration will drift down the page. We typically print a hundred forms at a time and by about number 20, the registration is bad enough to require manual adjustment. Any suggestions?
On older printers, tractor feed edges separate from
the page while printing. Sometimes this can be a fluke, but other times
it may point to a mechanical problem. Try taking the paper out of the
printer and hitting the form feed button a few times. Watch the
printer’s tractor feeds to make sure they are moving and are in synch
with each other. Some printers use belts to move the tractor feeds and,
over time, these belts wear, break, become smooth and slip, or become misaligned.
Environment can also contribute. Paper stored in a warehouse can weaken in intense heat or moisture. Carbon copy paper will especially cause this type of problem as one sheet's feeder edge can break away from the rest and peel slightly back. This will in turn slow the feed on one side as the edge buckles slightly under and may even skip to release pressure causing major alignment problems.
