Have continuous paper jams every time I attempt to print a document.

You have to have paper in the gears or in the feed or the tractor gears. Cheap paper is a usual problem, you can't use cheap paper. I would also do a maint menu on alignment and print feed and that should do it. If there is no paper jammed and you are using good paper (humidity can wreck havoc as well ) you might just need a new printer cause the feed is broke.

Only 8 lines are priting

You will need to install the correct diver for the printer for it to recognize the capabilities it has. Some require the page break for the seams to be set. Some printers have a mark to put the page break on when loading the paper. The printer may not be set for "continuous paper feed" and only printing a single page according to where it thinks the page break is.

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.

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

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

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."

make sure you have selected the correct media in the printer driver. The tracking mode has 3 options, (1) Web Sensing (Cut Labels), (2) Mark Sensing (Black marks on back of liner) and (3) Continuous . In your case select continuous. It sounds like the printer is in the wrong media mode and is feeding labels looking for a mark or gap and when it doesn't find one it flags a media error.
