    Continues Paper Feed

  • Anonymous Mar 20, 2014

    I have a brand new OKI Microline ML395 dot matrix printer. I installed it on a Unix system and it works well except for the page tear off. Because the page stops printing at the position ready for the next print which is below the top cover, I need press form feed to to be able to tear it off, thereby wasting a page.

Preprinted 4 part paper crunching up when being printed in epson lq680 printer


Mustafa:

The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.

HOT TO ADJUST THE TEAR HEIGHT ON A MICROLINE 490 WITHOUT USING THE SETUP DISC


If you are using regular letter size continuous printer paper, load the paper normally with the machine turned off. You can even turn the knob to feed the paper through, it doesn't matter how far. Turn the printer back on and press "PARK" button. Then press the "FF/LOAD" button and when you begin printing it will automatically print at the top of form (TOF). If the TOF ever gets thrown off you can press "LINE FEED" until the tear is where you want it and press "SHIFT" > "TOF" to back back to the previous page (or top of form).
Simply put, pressing "PARK" then "LOAD" should set the tear where you need it.

How to install paper in oki microline 320 turbo printer


Paper Loading

Rear Feed, Continuous Forms

Use the rear-feed path for printing on single-thickness,

continuous-form paper.

Use the single-sheet path (top feed) for graphics or charts.

! If you have paper in the paper path, be sure to remove it

before installing rear-feed paper.

1 Lock Lever

2 Upper Tractor Cover

3 Pins

4 Lower Tractor Cover

1 Move the paper lever to the position marked "REAR."

32T-11.eps
2 Grasp the tabs lift off the paper separator.

3 Pull up on the lock levers and open the tractor covers.

Then, move the right tractor to fit the width of the paper.

32T-27.eps

4 Place the first two holes in the paper over the tractor pins

on either side. Close the tractor covers.

32T-29.eps

5 Move the left tractor to align the edge of the paper with

the appropriate reference mark (1). Then, push back the

lock lever.

32T-29A.eps

6 Adjust the position of the right tractor to center the holes

in the paper on the pins. Then, push back the right lock

lever.

32T-29.eps

7 Install the paper separator. Place the wire guide (1) on the

pull-up roller assembly (2).

8 Press FF/LOAD. The paper feeds into the printer.

! The factory default setting for the Top of Form (where

the printing should begin) is one inch down from the top

of the page. To change the setting, see "Using Your
Printer, Top of Form (TOF)."

Top Feed (Single Sheets)

Use the single-sheet path for letterhead stationery, memos,

and individual envelopes.

! If you have continuous-form paper in the path, press

PARK to remove it before loading single sheets.

1 Make sure the printer is on and deselected (SEL light off).

2 Place the paper lever in the position marked "TOP."

32T-12.eps

3 Open the carriage cover. Raise the paper separator to the
single-sheet position.

4 Make sure the wire feed guide (1) is secured in the sheet

guide.

5 Adjust the paper feed guides (1) for the width of the paper.

Place a sheet of paper in the separator. The paper will feed

into the printer.

Oki 321 turbo in PPR emulation mode, does a form


Generally the form feed character is sent by your software. Try setting the page length in the printer setup to be the length of one label.

I cannot get the printer to form feed, it only manual feeds, how


I take it what you're saying is that you have to feed paper via flipping out the front tray and then pressing "online" or "continue", and that it will not feed paper from the actual paper tray?

You can try to take the beast apart and see why the control panel is not functioning, but I'd sit it on the curb, as it was probably manufactured sometime between 1993 and 1997. time to let the old girl die.

Oki microline 280 feeds paper continiously after a file print, and won't stop till i pull power cable


First, reinstall the driver and be sure it's the correct driver for this printer. If you drive a word document does it do the same? If not, chanses are the db application is constantly sending form feeds to the printer and the printer will do whatever it's told to do. Try a different printer setup in the db application.
