Question about OKI MICROLINE 320 Turbo Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Printer eventually outputs random characters/hash

After about 7-8 pages, the printer output turns into random characters and line breaks. This is a reburbished printer, running on a UNIX system. Possible buffer issue? Is there a way to change the buffer? Is it an emulation problem?
Thank you Bill zenzabill@hotmail.com

    An emulation problem will show from the very first page of printout. To me it sound like a power supply issue. If the unit is refurbished, check the warranty terms and let me know for further assistance.

How to change Tally T2240/24 Matrix Printer character and line spacing


This sounds like an Microsoft Excel issue. The Windows printer driver controls how printing is done regardless of your printer settings.

Excel controls the format of your page with column widths and line height. Depending on your version of Excel, after selecting your print range and your margins, you will need to go to Page Setup and select "Fit to" -- select 1 page wide and a larger number of pages tall.

Prints when computer turns on


There are a couple of things you can do. Clearing the print spooler or buffer is one of them. Click start and type printer and printer control should show up. Click on that and then select the tab that allows you to clear it. You can also stop the service if that does not work.

Have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate and downloaded/installed the driver for Panasonic DP-C322. After successfully installing, I printed a test page that consisted of 100's of pages, some blank and...


The "test" output should have been one page.

If the printer properly interpreted the data-stream that it received, it _would_ have generated just that one page. However, if the printer is not "interpreting" the data-stream, but instead is printing it, character-for-character, then you could have gotten the mountain of output that you got.

Turn the printer off. Turn the printer on. Try again to print your own, small, "test" page.

BP 2000 priner has minor steps in print line. The characters are not always even on a horizontal line.. some of the characters are light like the dollar sign. It has a new band but the robbbon ink builds...


This is usually due to the tractors not being set right.

There is a FINE LINE of having enough tension and tearing out the tractor strips.

ANOTHER problem is static electricity charges that create random drag on the paper either from the paper source or the output hopper.

In these cases, increase the humidity to 40% or use an ionizer in teh vicinity.

HP Photosmart c4280 Unwanted Output


I know that it sounds simple. But have you turned the printer off and back on. I have had a LOT of HPs start printing jibberish, and turning them off and back on is the only thing to fix.
I know it sounds like an obvious thing to try, and I don't mean to insult anyone's intelligence. But you'd be surprised how many people don't try that. They reinstall their driver, and reboot their computer, but never turn the printer off and back on.

Lexmark T642: Will not print text files in Linux


Sounds like there is something corrupt with the driver or the wrong driver is associated with the printer. Delete the printer from the computer, but leave attached. Download the newest driver directly from Lexmark and execute the download. The computer should then automatically re-install the printer.

please visit the link below to download the correct driver for your printer directly from Lexmark.

If you have a spare USB cable around the house, try that first and see if the cable was bad.
