Preprinted 4 part paper crunching up when being printed in epson lq680 printer


Mustafa:

The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.

The most current driver for this product is already included in the Windows XP Operating System. Currently there are no updated drivers available.
If the driver did not work, try to use the IBM Proprinter or Epson LQ driver.

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.

1st try the easy stuff is the leaver set as paper feed or tractor feed if that is set correctly then you most likley have a gear problem and they need to be replaced.

open up the printer replace all the gears on the right side and the large gear on the left
they cost about 8 euros each and if it does not park correctly just clean out the bits of paper stuck under the paper load leaver the leaver is small black and bobs up and down if it does not bob up and down it means that there is a bit of paper stopping it. (to do this you have to remove the large black roller that feeds the paper)

Okidata Microline 320 Turbo Printer - forms don't maintain registration


On older printers, tractor feed edges separate from the page while printing. Sometimes this can be a fluke, but other times it may point to a mechanical problem. Try taking the paper out of the printer and hitting the form feed button a few times. Watch the printer’s tractor feeds to make sure they are moving and are in synch with each other. Some printers use belts to move the tractor feeds and, over time, these belts wear, break, become smooth and slip, or become misaligned.

Environment can also contribute. Paper stored in a warehouse can weaken in intense heat or moisture. Carbon copy paper will especially cause this type of problem as one sheet's feeder edge can break away from the rest and peel slightly back. This will in turn slow the feed on one side as the edge buckles slightly under and may even skip to release pressure causing major alignment problems.

Line feeds


Hi-

When you said line feed do you mean the Top of form?

hope this helps

1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the desired tractor is selected (the corresponding tractor arrow should be lit).
2. Open the upper cover.
3. Press the Top of Form button to enter top-of-form mode. The printer beeps once, and the Top of Form light turns on.
4. Use the Micro Feed buttons to feed the paper to the desired top-of-form position. The “A” on the ribbon protector shows you where the bottom edge of your first line of text will print. This position is based on the first printable line of text. If your software inserts a top margin of five lines, your text will actually print five lines below the top-of-form position.
5. Press the Top of Form button again to exit and save your new top-of-form position. Then close the top cover.

Keep me posted if you have inquiries, thanks!
