Hi,

There should be a button on the front panel that lowers the quality.

    if you're on win xp, then it's under control panel..

    also, the oki has some default options..

This is a SNIP of a rather LONG FIX:

Found here:
http://forums.windrivers.com/showthread.php?7080-RESOLVED-Okidata-Microline-184-Turbo

"Just purchased this thing and am running it a machine to print checks with (Win95, p1-200, 48 Mb ram). The Oki dot matrix printers don't give you drivers, they tell you to use the drivers from Win95 disk. Sure... (just lazy if you ask me :-) OK using the Oki Microline 184 IBM Turbo driver the thing works fine, EXCEPT that it *always* prints in NLQ mode no matter what the settings in the control panel, it just switches to NLQ before each print job. So... we switch to a "generic text" driver and it works fine that way EXCEPT that it no longer recognises the custom paper length (8.5" wide X 7" long) Now here's the wierd part... IF I switch back to the win95 driver, re-accept the custom paper size, print a test page (in NLQ of course), switch back to the generic driver, re-accept the the custom paper size, switch the printer to normal (non NLQ), and print it works fine with the custom paper size and non-NLQ mode until the next time it needs to print. The printer remains ON 24/7, so its not reseting itself. It just seems that with the Win95 driver there is no way to set it to print in anything but NLQ AND the generic driver refuses to keep the custom paper sizes in memory. Anyone seen this before? Never came accross this myself. I may just end up sending this thing back and getting an Epson or someting else."

AND THERE IS THIS:
"This is like going back to the dark ages....most of those old impact printers had dip switches to set things like default print quality. Additionally, Oki's usually came in two 'flavors'--plain Oki and IBM Oki. It's important that you install the correct driver between the two options..."

My OKI 591 is only printing going one direction, not backwards and forwards like before so it's very very slow. Is there a setting that causes this? Thank you


Usually when this printer prints in HIGH QUALITY, it will only print one way, to avoid misalignment issues between the one pass one way and the next pass coming from the opposite direction.

If I am right, lowering the quality of your print to "normal" or "draft" should give you back the "2-way printing"

OKI Microline 591 prints extra page of paper everytime


There is a setting on most printers to print a separator page at the end of print jobs. You can check the settings of your printer by going to the control panel and clicking on printers. Select your printer, right click and go into properties. The setting for this is usually located in the advanced settings. See if the printer is set up to print a separator page, if it is, uncheck it, press apply/ok button and close out printer window.

I am trying to hook my printer up to my new computer and the disk I have is not working. i do not have a cd for microline 590 elite dot matrix drivers


The drivers should be on the company website, if these are not working for you the generic text driver in Windows will work for text only printing. If you do graphics or formatted invoices, etc. on the printer Epson and Okidata both make pretty generic print drivers that should work for a microline printer.

print out your menu of the printer and load the IBM Proprinter driver in windows ,your printer default driver is IBM Proprinter this will sort out the problem.you have probably loaded a OKI driver while the printer is set for IBM.Hope this helps.
