Printing jibberish I have lost my manual and have not used this printer for some time. I hooked everything up correctly. When I send something to print it just puts out jibberish or it does not even make it to the que at all. What am I doing wrong?

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.

Power off everything for more than a minute, and try again. You may have to uninstall the printer, go to HP.com, and download install program and follow those directions exactly, often NOT plug and play.

You can go to HP's solution center and download a utility that will upgrade the "firmware" of the printer. If the upgraded firmware does nothing to fix it, it is e-waste.

You will need to reinstall the drivers. If you still have the drivers cd that came with the printer, use that. If not, follow this link: http://www.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn033540.jhtml?downloadStep=s2&selectedDownload=dln00172&operatingSystem=windows_xp&selectedLanguage=en&downloadLanguage=en
