Okidata 320 Turbo print head carriage slamming

The print head carriage on this printer slams into the left hand side of the printer, sometimes grinding its gears, whenever it goes back to the home position. Does anyone know how the printer senses the home position and what might cause this failure?

There is a Optical sensor under the print head drive assy. You might have dust blocking this sensor.

The problem your having is with the carriage assembly. You'll need to remove the ribbon and printhead. It's the black piece under them. Here's a link to a replacement part for $38.95.

Hi ,
This product clearly needs a servicing as far as my experience goes . Still we shall go ahead and try to reach the solution or else this definitely needs servicing. I shall explain why -
1. check cartridge on right : if you have replaced the black cartridge and have been using the original cartridges then its an issue with the print heads. The black print head needs to be replaced by the local service centre . There is a blockage in the nozzles of the print cartridge that passes out the ink.
2. slam to the right : if i am not wrong this is the carriage you are referring to. Do the following steps (though i presume you might have done it if you have reset the printer)-
a. pull out the power cable
b. open the cartridge door and hold the carriage with your hand and move it manually 4-5 times left to right with as much speed as possible....there should be no obstruction on the way it moves.....if there is a pin / peice of paper / any obstruction - remove it if you can. The carriage could also slam if the pin of its movement has gone loose and it keeps on slamming uncontrolably. This seriously needs a servicing from the local service centre.

Hello babytenbucks,
I can help you setup your Okidata 320 printer.
Connect the printer to the printer port coming off the motherboard. Usually it's colored pink. Also known as LPT1.
If your operating system is Win XP do this. Open Control panel, open Printer & Faxes. Click File, Add new printer.
Uncheck, automatically detect & install my plug & play printer.
Click Next. Allow it to use LPT1. Click next.
There are two windows here. On the left is Manufacture on the right is Printers. Scroll through Manufacture till you find
Okidata. Under Printer, scroll down till you see Okidata ML 320 Turbo/D (IBM), click next. You can give it a new name or leave it as is. Make the 320 the default printer. You can let it print a test page. Either way re-start the system. Try another test page.
Click the link below for a .pdf file which is the manual for your
Okidata 320 Turbo.

It's losing knowledge of where the carriage is on the rail, hence the carriage tring to escape threw the side

and I'm concerned with your L-01 piece is one of these?
b093c21.jpg
If so thats the cover switch but to my knowledge doesn't create the slam, that usally known to be a plasic strip that runs the width of printer, not intact, Dirty or not running threw the carriage sensor

Tell me more and I'll continue.
