Oki 320 Turbo -- Unclear characters in output

I have a 320 Turbo. Up until last week all was fine. When printing mailing labels there is a white line going horizontally through each line of type. This making reading the address, etc. difficult. For example you cannot distinguish between a 6 and 8. I have tried different positions on the label and different print heads. I had a spare 320 turbo and tried it, same problem. We have switched ribbons. Help! Postal service is not happy with the quality of the labels and they have to go out every Thursday.

If it is not the ribbon, you may have to replace the print head.

I print labels with my Microline 320 Turbo. I put a new ribbon in and the labels are so wet and bold and after sitting for awhile they bleed until you can't read them. I have the lever on the print head...


This results from theway the print head is striking the paper. If you have it set to NLQ. it will be heavy, you can set it to a draft mode or SSD:


Print the Menu Settings, to see what your settings are:

Printing the settings is the only way to have a record of

the settings.

1 Make sure paper is loaded in the printer.

2 Enter the Menu Mode (SHIFT + SEL).

3 Press PRINT (PARK key).





Print Quality

! Important!

Front panel settings for print quality and character

pitch are overridden by software commands.
The lights will always reflect the printer's state.


Press PRINT QUALITY to select:

NLQ: Near Letter Quality

• Highest quality, slowest speed

• Courier or Gothic fonts

• Recommended for correspondence

UTL: Utility

• Medium quality, medium speed

• Gothic font only

• Recommended for internal documents and high-volume

data.

HSD: High Speed Draft

• Lower quality, faster speed

• Gothic font only

• Recommended for drafts.

SSD: Super Speed Draft

• Lowest quality (12 cpi only), fastest speed

• Gothic font only
• Recommended for fastest output of drafts.

Super Speed Draft

To use Super Speed Draft (SSD), enter the Menu Mode and

make changes as follows:

1 Press SHIFT + SEL.

2 Press GROUP twice.

3 Press SET until DRAFT prints as the setting for the Print

Mode.

4 Press ITEM.

5 Press SET (SSD prints).

6 Press SHIFT + SEL to exit Menu Mode and save your
changes.

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.

Try downloading and installing an updated driver for your printer.

Here is the driver download page for your printer: MICROLINE 320 TURBO < Drivers & software

Select your operative system, download the file, then run the installer.

Printer is not advancing the paper


Check your software settings; it sounds like the Oki is getting additional (surplus) line feeds.

Oki ML 320 Turbo/D IBM - JetDirect 170x Print Server prolems


Check the receive buffer on the Oki. I usually set it to the highest (88k or 128k). You might also check the print head gap if you are printing multi part invoices. If the print head is too close it may overheat and stop printing. If you have a different printer, swap it out and see if it prints correctly. It may be a problem with the JetDirect 170x, not the printer.
