SOURCE: 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.

Your Oki model does not need drivers, for they are already contained since Windows 98 and up. However, if it still doesn't work, check that the printer emulation is set to IBM and then install a new printer using the IBM Proprinter II/III driver, also contained in Windows.

Be blessed.

SOURCE: oki 320 turbo, serial interface, how do I change

Hello,

To change the settings, make sure you have a good ribbon installed.

Press the MODE button. The SEL light will go out. Menu light will come on.

Press the GROUP button until the printer prints something like:

Serial Interface Parity None

To change the Parity, press SET. A new line will print as:

Serial Interface Parity Odd

Press SET until the Item is the one you want.

Then Press the ITEM button. It will then print:

Serial Interface Serial Data 7 or 8 bits 8

Again if you want to change it, press SET. Otherwise go to the next Item.

Continue using the ITEM button to choose the item you want to review or change and the SET button to change the selection.

When you have made all the changes verify by going through all of the items with the ITEM button. When you are satisfied, Press the MODE button to save all of the changes. (The Menu light will go out.)

If you have any trouble Comment back.

Thanks for using Fixya.

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..."

Hi, i had this microline 390 turbo for quite some years and today, it's been a little weird. It keep printing for no absolute reason and what it's pringing are characters that seem to be encoding...


disconnect the LPT cable, and try a usb cable, the wierd printing should stop while the cable is disconnected. I'll be willing to bet there is something trying to print or poll the printer from the computer. that is causing the random characters. check to see that there are no other printers configured g to print/connect to same LPT1 port, from an old printer installation. (thus switching to the USB cable). Be also sure to download the latest drivers for your operating system for the OKI, from OKI's website

  • Description: ecblank.gif ecblank.gif ecblank.gif

    ecblank.gif The most current driver for this product is already included in the Windows XP Operating System. Currently there are no updated drivers available. Follow the instructions below to correctly install your printer.

    NOTES:
    Select "Oki Data ML 320 Turbo/D (IBM)" from the XP CD.

    The ML390/1 Turbo Printers are not on the current XP CD. Please use the IBM Proprinter or Epson LQ driver for these models.

    The driver should automatically install once the printer is connected to the computer and powered on. If it does not automatically install, then do the following:

    1. Click Start, then Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware or Printers and Faxes.
    3. Verify that the printer icon is not already installed
    4. Click Start, Turn Off Computer, then Turn Off to shut down the computer.
    5. Connect the data cable either USB or parallel. If it is not then continue to step 5.
    6. Turn on the printer.
    7. Turn on the computer.
    8. The printer will now be automatically detected

Okidata 320 turbo microline prints jibberish


sounds like a job was sent to the printer with the wrong driver. There is no way to purge it just load some paper and let it run until it stops. They make sure your emulation matches the driver youa are using. Example Epson 9pin compatiable or OKI ML320 Turbo-IBM drive you want the emulation set to Epson FX. Or if using the OKI ML320 Drive you want the emulation set to ML.

The problem your having is with the carriage assembly. You'll need to remove the ribbon and printhead. It's the black piece under them. Here's a link to a replacement part for $38.95.
