Question about OKI MICROLINE 490 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Squeak I have a Okidata Microline 490 Matrix printer and within the last hour it has developed a very high pitched squeak. It seems to be located in the front with the movement of the printer cartridge. Is there any action to be taken to prevent a problem later?

My Okidata 320 microline print cartridge is leaking ink. What does this mean?


The Okidata Microline 320 uses a ribbon. If it smears, just back the tension lever off until it goes away. Smearing will happen with multi-part forms unless you back off the printhead.

Okidata Microline 30 Turbo dot matrix


The problem your having is a spacer motor. It's located under the carriage that holds the ribbon/printhead. The part number is 56513701. Available at Seattle Platen - Dale 1800-221-2388.

Here's a free copy of the Okidata 320T service manual that will walk you through testing and verfying before ordering the replacement part.

If this helped you, please hit me up with a FIXYA. Thanks.
