Take the ribbon out and try it. The carrige also advances the ribbon, and if it is knotted up, thats the problem. Also. look for a photo interupt sensor along the edge of the carrige near the sides of the printer. Chances are, the sensor got dirty and it can not find home.

Installed a new okidata microline 320 turbo dot matrix printer and now the tear/set button does not set the paper where i need it to as my old printer did. How can i change the tear line setting?


Make sur that the paper length is correct in the settings. With paper in the printer hold down the "SHIFT" button then press the "SEL/MENU" button. The "SEL" indicatr will light up. Now press the "PARK" button, a settings page will print. Select your paper length you require by going through the settings, if you press the "LF" button it wil take you through the different groups of settings, the "FF/LOAD" button wil take you through the different items in the groups and the "TEAR" button will change the settings on the different items. To save the new settings hold down the "SHIFT" button and press the "SEL/MENU" button.

Okidata Microline 320 works with cover off only


i think its time to update your printer. but if you want to keep it then maybe the cover is not put on the right way or it is blocking the process described. in these cases you can't really solve it.

Okidata Microline 30 Turbo dot matrix


The problem your having is a spacer motor. It's located under the carriage that holds the ribbon/printhead. The part number is 56513701. Available at Seattle Platen - Dale 1800-221-2388.

Here's a free copy of the Okidata 320T service manual that will walk you through testing and verfying before ordering the replacement part.

If this helped you, please hit me up with a FIXYA. Thanks.

Alarm light Microline 320 Turbo 9 pin printer - won't print


We swapped out the printer for another one we had in the office that was working. The new printer also got the alarm light. From that we concluded that it was a bad serial card. We swapped the serial card from another printer, and the original printer started working perfectly. Now we just need to find out where we can purchase another serial card, as we have no more 'spares' around here.
