Re: abnormal printing with continuous tone

Your problem is either a bad parallel cable(maybe just loose) , or the printer port is is sending out noise. These units tend to do what they are told...and something is telling it to print these characters. Try pulling the cable off and see if it ever prints anything.

Re: 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

Oki microline 280 feeds paper continiously after a file print, and won't stop till i pull power cable

First, reinstall the driver and be sure it's the correct driver for this printer. If you drive a word document does it do the same? If not, chanses are the db application is constantly sending form feeds to the printer and the printer will do whatever it's told to do. Try a different printer setup in the db application.

You need to set and store paper size, width etc in printers internal menu and on print driver on pc.
See Oki manual for printer settings its written on the front of the machine i think menu and set power on, then print to see settings then read manual...

Font size

You can change the dfont size from the menu, but that setting afects the entire page of print. You different size fonts are controled from the codes sent to the printer from the software. Recreate the document, or create a document with a sample of that small print and see if the printer prints it.

OKI Pacemark 4410 doesn't print it correct spots for some forms

I found the service manual for this, which should come in really handy for you when performing maintenance on your printer (which is most likely what you need to do to the printer) Funny thing is that there are a lot of people trying to sell these manuals, so I'd save this one for future use (it might not be on this link for long)
