How to replace printhead to okidata 321

Unplug power, look down on printhead some have a chrome metal clamp that swings out and then you pull up on print head. Some models have two screws that hold print head in. Then the print head pulls up.

So, the one thing that no one ever pointed out is that Okidata printer head jewels get lubricated VIA the ribbon. You MUST use at least 50 to 70% Brand name original cartridges, or suffer premature print head wear.

Once the printed character becomes blurry, get a REMANUFACTURED head, with the oiling wick. This lets you use all the cheap ribbons, by lubricating the jewels directly.

When you are all finished, enter the menu of the printer and play with REGISTRATION. Often you can make a crisper print by tweaking this setting.

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.

Problem with new installed printhead

If I remember the 320, there is a head-gap adjustment that is normally moved for replacement of the head and must be reset again. Check your manual for that term; 'Head gap adjustment'

Okidata printing problems

It probably needs the shaft that the printhead moves back & forth on cleaned and oiled, or the printhead is overheating, or the ribbon is jamming up (generic ribbons do this a lot !)

If none on the above fix the problem, make a note as to what lights are on steady and flashing and post them. (That is the error code)

Okidata microline 320- having menu problems

Menu Light flashing is a printhead thermister overheat problem.
Power off the printer and try reseating the print head; if this fails you'll need to replace the print head!

Okidata 3410 pacemark not printing correctly

Well, I had that problem once. What I did was that I used the printers cleaning tools. You can acces them by entering Printers in the ControlPanel. Then right click on your printer and select Settings. Look through there. Worked for me.
