HI,

The fault is with your printer.Please get it serviced by a technician.
And if it is still under warranty i suggest you to get it replaced.

Goodluck..

Does it eventually continue and complete your print job?

    I see that this particular printer has a relatively small internal memory--only 128KB.

    I'm guessing this pausing happens with larger print jobs, but maybe not with small, single page jobs?

    The pause is probably when the printer rebuffers the next part of the print job from the computer, since it can't hold the whole job all at once.

    Assuming the job eventually finishes, this is an unavoidable inconvenience. A printer with larger internal memory would be needed.

Oki 320ml dot matrix printer pauses while printing and the menu light start to flicker.It resumes printing after a while. Why?


The printhead has some thermisters in and it is either actually overheating or a faulty thermister thinks it is overheating. Either way, a new printhead is required.

I have a OKI Microline 320 printer.


Your printer has a damaged mainboard. Very sorry, for yours is a very good unit. the replacement model is the Oki ML-420, which comes with a 3-year warranty.

Be blessed.

Check printer setup where you define carrige return and line feed options. Alot of times you need to set printer to do an auto CR on reciept of LF or auto LF on reciept of CR. I run into this all the time.

what kind of network is this printer setup on? it must be an external print server, that runs a cable to the serial port? i actually have not seen this done on this Oki model. it may not be possible...any more info you can add, and i can see what i can figure out.

What driver are you using for this printer? Try loading a Epson LQ1050 driver and try again.
