The printer feeds to much papper


The first thing you need to do is to check the paper size selected in the application you are printing. If you are printing from a Windows based application you WILL find that the paper size selected in the application you are printing from is set to A4.

On the printer you can set the paper size in the following way;


  1. Power the printer ON holding down the SETUP button to unlock the menu, release SETUP when the printer finishes initializing
  2. Put the printer OFFLINE press SETUP
  3. Press the button under MENU
  4. Press the button under NEXT until you see FORMLEN (if you do not see FORMLEN select the PAPER option it may be a sub menu for PAPER)
  5. Press the button under TRACTOR 1
  6. Press the button under LINES
  7. Use button 2 to reduce the number of lined to 18 (3 inch x 6 lines per inch)

  8. Press the button under SET to save the setting

I am assuming the form length is 3 inches, if it is 1.25 inches this may be outside the specification for the printer and you may not be able to select this it is also not dividable by 6 lines per inch

Oki 321 turbo in PPR emulation mode, does a form


Generally the form feed character is sent by your software. Try setting the page length in the printer setup to be the length of one label.

Oki microline 280 feeds paper continiously after a file print, and won't stop till i pull power cable


First, reinstall the driver and be sure it's the correct driver for this printer. If you drive a word document does it do the same? If not, chanses are the db application is constantly sending form feeds to the printer and the printer will do whatever it's told to do. Try a different printer setup in the db application.

It sounds like there is 12 inch form length (or may be A4) selected on the computer system. The data from the system will take precidence over the 11 form length set on the printer.
If using Windows, ensure the Printing Preferences in the pritner driver are set to 11 form, Also check Printer Properties for a paper size ensure this is set to 11 inch
On the 'System' check the paper size selected within the application (if available) Check this is set to 11 inch form length
Check document margins to ensure these are not reducing the 'printable area' on the page. If availabe to a Print Preview on system to see what the document looks like.

If your application outputs raw data to the printer, check the number of lines per page assming printing at 6 lines per inch you can fit 66 lines on an 11 form. Check no more than 66 lines are per page, it sounds like 72 might be being sent befor a Form Feed in the data. (there may be a 1 line top margin set on the printer)

Finaly check the top margin setting on the printer to ensure it is set to 0 so you have the full 66 lines available on a page on the printer I think you would be looking to set the FORM ADJUST to 0 to adjust the top margin
