Its not the main board just an incorrect driver being used. Always use the driver for the exact model from the manufacturers web site.

The only thing that coould cause it to malfunction like this is a defective main board. Replacing the machine would be recommended as the board is rather expensive.

ebay has quite a few under $100

Okidata Microline 320 turbo problem


Solved this problem by going into the bios and changing the port from ECP to EPP, and then uninstalling the ECP port in device manager and replacing it with a standard parallel port configuration, no problems since doing that.

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.

Okidata Microline 320 works with cover off only


i think its time to update your printer. but if you want to keep it then maybe the cover is not put on the right way or it is blocking the process described. in these cases you can't really solve it.

Printing jibberish


Hello babytenbucks,
I can help you setup your Okidata 320 printer.
Connect the printer to the printer port coming off the motherboard. Usually it's colored pink. Also known as LPT1.
If your operating system is Win XP do this. Open Control panel, open Printer & Faxes. Click File, Add new printer.
Uncheck, automatically detect & install my plug & play printer.
Click Next. Allow it to use LPT1. Click next.
There are two windows here. On the left is Manufacture on the right is Printers. Scroll through Manufacture till you find
Okidata. Under Printer, scroll down till you see Okidata ML 320 Turbo/D (IBM), click next. You can give it a new name or leave it as is. Make the 320 the default printer. You can let it print a test page. Either way re-start the system. Try another test page.
Click the link below for a .pdf file which is the manual for your
Okidata 320 Turbo.

If you do not have Adobe's pdf reader download it from the next link.

Good day!
