Okidata ml390/391 Turbo

When printing continuous feed labels I can't figure out (after reading the entire user guide 5x) how to print a sheet of labels and have the next label line up. Ie., I print one label and the sheet doesn't feed properly so that the 2nd label prints ON the second label.

When I print a label I have to press the feed button to get the label out. How do I get it to push out the entire label without me having to feed and reset the whole time?

Most people I know print addresses from a sheet of labels, which ejects at the end. It sounds like you are printing one address from a continuous roll of labels, and they are so close together that the printer cannot push it out for you without misaligning the next one. I think both systems are designed mainly to print a batch of labels at one time.
If you are printing a batch, it is best to prepare the whole set first and save it as 'data' for printing addresses. For a one off or just a few I would use a sheet of 24 labels (say) with 3 to a row, and 8 rows.
Does this help?

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."

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.


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

on either side. Close the tractor covers.


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

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

lock lever.


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

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



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."


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


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.

Try downloading and installing an updated driver for your printer.

Here is the driver download page for your printer: MICROLINE 320 TURBO < Drivers & software

Select your operative system, download the file, then run the installer.

Dear jamin4volks;

As per this excerpt from the Oki B4350 User manual:

For face down printing, make sure the rear paper exit tray is closed (the paper exits from the top of the printer). The paper exit bin on the top of the printer stacks printed pages face down, capacity 150 sheets of 20 lb. paper. Pages printed in reading order (page 1 first) will be sorted in reading order (last page on top, facing down).

For face up printing, make sure the face up rear paper exit tray is open and the paper guide is extended if required. In this condition, paper will exit via this path, regardless of driver settings. Paper is stacked in reverse order, capacity 50 sheets of 20 lb. paper.

Always use this tray and the manual feed tray for heavyweight stocks to reduce the possibility of paper jams."

This manual is available at

Hope this helps;
