    So, am I to understand that garbage prints out, even when the parallel cable is unplugged, or just when you try to print to the printer from a PC?

OKI error 002 is a main engine board failure. sometimes this can be caused by bad data received from the PC.

remove all cables from printer and only leave power on. run internal pages and if it works then most likley case is the bad data from USB/netowrk

It is possible to convert the cable of lq-2180 from parallel to sb cable?


No!

Are you trying to connect your printer to a PC using the USB port?

If so, it would be far better to purchase a USB to Parallel port cable.

The data passing over the USB cable will have to converted from a serial format to a parallel format before the printed can store the data,

Next, the converted has to add the required control signals in order for the printer to read and latch the data.

  • Description: ecblank.gif ecblank.gif ecblank.gif

    ecblank.gif The most current driver for this product is already included in the Windows XP Operating System. Currently there are no updated drivers available. Follow the instructions below to correctly install your printer.

    NOTES:
    Select "Oki Data ML 320 Turbo/D (IBM)" from the XP CD.

    The ML390/1 Turbo Printers are not on the current XP CD. Please use the IBM Proprinter or Epson LQ driver for these models.

    The driver should automatically install once the printer is connected to the computer and powered on. If it does not automatically install, then do the following:

    1. Click Start, then Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware or Printers and Faxes.
    3. Verify that the printer icon is not already installed
    4. Click Start, Turn Off Computer, then Turn Off to shut down the computer.
    5. Connect the data cable either USB or parallel. If it is not then continue to step 5.
    6. Turn on the printer.
    7. Turn on the computer.
    8. The printer will now be automatically detected

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.

Abnormal printing with continuous tone


this sounds like it is doing something called a "hex dump" basicaly printing all ASCII characters. okis tend to do this from time to time if l;eft on for a significant period with no data sent to it. the only advice given by oki is to switch it off when not using it unfortunatly Hope this helps Cops Pete@wedotoners.com
