Question about OKI MICROLINE 520 Matrix Printer
Printhead starts printing at proper position then after each line is completed starts printing further and further to the left until printhead has no more room to go left and alarm light goes on.
Clean the large silver rod that runs through the carriage. It is dirty and not allowing the carriage to move as freely as it should. Ideally it should be left dry. Also change the ribbon. The same motor drives the carriage and the ribbon. If it has a bind, the same thing can happen. Hope it helps Ed

Below the head is a black serrated rack called the space rack. Replace that item and it will sort out the moving of margins Michael
