Microline 320Turbo 9pin

My printer prints fine but the print head keeps slamming against the side of the printer. Can you please tell me how to fix this. I have blown the dust off the eyes and no fix.
Thanks,

The problem your having is with the carriage assembly. You'll need to remove the ribbon and printhead. It's the black piece under them. Here's a link to a replacement part for $38.95.

Re-install the printer ribbon. It's probably slipping or dragging on the head mechanism, and the printer synchronization control is slowing everything down to compensate.

As it is printing cartridge will jam/stutter when going from left to right sometimes prints fine and sometimes stops at left side and alarm will light up


Put some light oil like 3in1 or even wd40 on the round metal bar that runs from side to side. The one the print head rides on. The bushings that ride on the rail dry out and start to bind up. Just a little oil should solve this for you.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Printer keeps printing over the =same line, paper is not moving


Theirs a small gear in the gear train on the left hand side that turns the paper roller(Platen).
It has lost a couple of teeth. Has the paper is no longer feeding the print head simply keeps printing on the same place.
You need a service repair.

Try downloading and installing an updated driver for your printer.

Here is the driver download page for your printer: MICROLINE 320 TURBO < Drivers & software

Okidata 320 turbo microline prints jibberish


sounds like a job was sent to the printer with the wrong driver. There is no way to purge it just load some paper and let it run until it stops. They make sure your emulation matches the driver youa are using. Example Epson 9pin compatiable or OKI ML320 Turbo-IBM drive you want the emulation set to Epson FX. Or if using the OKI ML320 Drive you want the emulation set to ML.

This would be the print head pins not moving forward or the ribbon bunched up at the top.
