Question about OKI MicroLine 420 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

We have an Okidata Microline 420 printer that we use to print checks, what would cause a faint black horizontal line that goes across the entire check?

I replaced the ribbon, but it still has black horizontal lines that follow the print head across the check.

My Okidata 320 microline print cartridge is leaking ink. What does this mean?


The Okidata Microline 320 uses a ribbon. If it smears, just back the tension lever off until it goes away. Smearing will happen with multi-part forms unless you back off the printhead.

Print is very faint shortly after changing ribbon.


The head may not be close enough - most dot printers have an adjustment for paper thickness (1-5 pages) check this. Also the head could just be going bad - they loose length after beating on the bar over years. Another thing is the bar (or plattem) gets worn down and has a grove in it over time. Lastly the ribbon maybe junk - they sit in a whearhouse for years and get dry. Sorry - very generic answers.- but true

This would be the print head pins not moving forward or the ribbon bunched up at the top.

Okidata 320/420 printhead not printing aligned.


Clean the large silver rod that runs through the carriage. It is dirty and not allowing the carriage to move as freely as it should. Ideally it should be left dry. Also change the ribbon. The same motor drives the carriage and the ribbon. If it has a bind, the same thing can happen. Hope it helps Ed
