This printer will print with the Windows Generic/Text driver. It can also be set to print with IBM or Epson FX drivers. Follow these steps:
1. Press on the "SHIFT" Button, while holding it down press the SEL Button. The "SEL" Indicator will light up.
2. On the controll pannel, press the "PARK"
Button. The Printer will print a Setup Page.
The last line that is printed will be what it is
set to - ML or IBM or FX.
3. With the "TEAR" button you can set it to
the driver you want.
4. To save the config you selected, Hold the "SHIFT" Button and press the "SEL" button.
The "SEL" indicator will turn off and save the configuration.
Your Oki model does not need drivers, for they are already contained since Windows 98 and up. However, if it still doesn't work, check that the printer emulation is set to IBM and then install a new printer using the IBM Proprinter II/III driver, also contained in Windows.
Someone else may have an exact diagnosis on this, but here is one possibility: The printhead home sensor may be defective. This sensor, either an optical device or mechanical switch senses when the head is in the home or leftmost position. This information is used to determine start point of print. A mechanical switch will be more prone to problems, but often fixed by cleaning it.
Again, someone else may have actually seen and diagnosed this problem, and could give the definitive answer.
