Be sure when you install new paper that the paper out switch, usually in the paperpath somewhere, is being contacted by the new paper. Usually located on the left side of the paper platten.

Hi oki 320 turbo printer started to print very light ,i want to change the ink ,but i do not know where to put the ink ,please help


There is now ink in the machine. You just have to replace the print ribbon. This is the small black box that is mounted to the printhead.

I have oki microline 320 elite and printer head jams


In my own experience, Okidata printers have a nasty habit of collecting a lot of paper dust. To start out, I would suggest a really good cleaning, with no paper in the machine, with a can of compressed air. If that does not solve your problem, you might have to replace your feed wheel assembly. Hope this helps!

Problem with new installed printhead


If I remember the 320, there is a head-gap adjustment that is normally moved for replacement of the head and must be reset again. Check your manual for that term; 'Head gap adjustment'

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.

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.

EVERY TIME PRINT GET A EXTRA SHEET BLANK PAPER


Printer setup defines different emulator you can use such as IBM Pro/ Brother/Generic. Try a different one that as set now. See if that helps. Does it do the same of printing with a different
application? You may have page length setup wrong in application.
