Oki ML 320 Turbo/D IBM - JetDirect 170x Print Server prolems

I connected the Oki 320 printer to the Jetdirect 170x print server and was able to send print jobs to it however, the printer will only print a portion of the job and then quits. While the p/s seems to be thinking (the activity light blinks) the printer never starts back up until the printer is shut off and turned back on. It is almost like it is running out of memory or something.

The print server seems to be working correctly and i am using the built in Windows driver through XP (Okidata ML 320 Turbo/D IBM) which is the same driver I am using for the printer when it is shared via an XP machine which works just fine.

Any suggestions?

Re: Oki ML 320 Turbo/D IBM - JetDirect 170x Print Server...

I just had this exact same problem - same printer, same Jetdirect model. Mine turned out to be the parallel printer mode setting inside the JetDirect. I connected to the configuraiton page by IP, then changed the Parallel mode from "AUTO" to "Centronics", tested it, and it worked fine after that. Hope it helps.

Check the receive buffer on the Oki. I usually set it to the highest (88k or 128k). You might also check the print head gap if you are printing multi part invoices. If the print head is too close it may overheat and stop printing. If you have a different printer, swap it out and see if it prints correctly. It may be a problem with the JetDirect 170x, not the printer.

Can i make a hp2420d a network printer

You can purchase a jetdirect network card from Ebay. Any model will work, a 610 should not be too expensive these days. Or you can purchase a USB network print server and connect the printer to the USB port on the printer and then connect the print server to your network.

I have a HP OfficeJet K60 printer. I have a Linksys WRT54G V8 broadband router. I would like to set up printer so that I can print from my laptop without connecting the print cable to the laptop.

Do you have the jetdirect print server attached to the printer? If so, follow the instructions for the print server setup before connecting to the broadband router

HP DesignJet 450c printer issues.

You can purchase a External JetDirect card from any reputable HP (or computer) agent. This will allow you to plug the 450 directly into the network. The problem with the large format printers not being supported is strange to me. I have never had a problem, simply load the drivers and away you go. If the 450 drivers dont work for you, you can select any of the older drivers (750c recomended) and they will work on the 450c

Only printing tasks from some computers

Print the Menu Setting out on printer and menu setting out on pc. Match sure emulation matcheds on both sides. If using serial make sure serial settings match on both sides. If parallel, check the bois on the PC, change parallel port type to EPP instead of ECP or SPP.

Printer Stopped Printing

If you can get a test page this indicates that there is nothing wrong with your printer there should be a little button on the jetdirect box press that and that will give you the jetdirect settings and IP code. Check this with you computer system as your IP host license may of expired and change the jetdirect to suit.

If the network IP code is still the same the cheapest this is to fit a new jetdirect box if this still doesn't work then I'm affrayed that the machine formatter board has become faulty and would probberly out way the cost to repair it that buy a new machine.

I do hope this has helped you
Thanks J
