Question about OKI Pacemark 3410 Matrix Printer
After replacing the printhead, the test print prints very lightly on the page and fades in and out about every 5-6 lines. The very first test print, nothing could be seen at all on the page. I have two of these printers and have swapped ribbons to make sure that was not the issue. Is there a combination of buttons to factory reset, like holding down form feed as you power on the printer, makes it print a test page? I have also changed the print ribbon.
If your print fades in then out every 5-6 lines, your platen probably has flat spots on it. This can be caused when someone forget to perform an alignment on a PH.
To run a test page you can power off the printer. Hold down the LF key and power on at the same time, this will print a self test.

Tips for a great answer:
(1) Open the access over.
(2) Pull up and rotate the head clamp 1 to unclamp the printhead 2 as shown fig. 3.3.1.
(3) Disconnect the printhead 2 from PC connector 3.
(4) To install, follow the removal steps in the reverse order.
Notes on installation:
(1) Insert the printhead 2 into the PC connector 3 while pushing it against the carriage
(2) The head clamp 1 must surely be sandwiched between printhead 2 and carriage
frame 4 as shown Figure 3.3.2.
(3) Be sure to check the gap between platen and printhead (see 4).
(4) Be careful not to touch the print head while it is very hot.
(5) Make sure that there is not any dust or oil on the connector contact section A. If it
is found, wipe it off by alcohol. Good Luck ! I couldn't attach any pictures.
