Question about OKI MICROLINE 320 Turbo Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Pharmacy labels are printing so big they are taking up two labels.

My pharmacy computer hard drive crashed and had to have hard drive rebuilt. Tried to fill prescriptions today and now my OKI is printing so large it is taking up two labels instead of one. How do I get it back to size?

Try deleting the Oki from the Printers and Faxes folder and rebooting.
Windows may have screwed up the driver.

If that doesn't work, use Add New Hardware but don't let it choose the driver, use the manual option and pick your Ok model from the list.

It may have stupidly installed the 320 instead of the 320T driver; they may be different.

How do I correct paper feed problems?


Clean the foam/rubber paper rollers inside the printer. Use isopropanol (isopropyl alcohol) available from the pharmacy section of your grocery store or at the pharmacy.

If the paper is still not grabbing the rollers, clean with a very small amount of turpentine / paint thinner. This will swell the rubber and make them a bit more tacky and grab the paper better.

Why does hp officejet Pro 8600 crashes when printing avery labels?


Avery labels may be blocked on your computer so check your security settings. Other wise you may need to refresh the page, your computer or the printer. If that doesn't help you may need to double check your ink cartridges are full and correctly placed, also that the wires connecting the printer to your computer are all in properly.

E260 will not print labels


This printer has capability to print on labels. Here are some tips when printing on labels:


· Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that the labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

· Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to Heavy.

· Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25-psi (172-kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

· Do not use labels with slick backing material.

· Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.

· Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

· Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.

· Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

· If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2-mm (0.06-in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive.

· Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

· Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual-sided labels are not supported.

PRINTERHEADS HAVE A PROBLEM BLACK & YELLOW


need a bit more info to solve this, but if you mean that they are clogged up and aren't printing, use an alcohol swab and clean the heads, let it dry then try again. just rub over them until no more ink comes off onto the swab. should be able to pick some up at the local pharmacy.

Zebra printer Zm400 - error condition (paper out and ribbon out) when fresh install


This solution is for the Zebra Xi II and the Zebra Xi III , so the wording may be different in different models, but here is the solution:

Press the SETUP button.

Scroll through until you see MEDIA AND RIBBON.

Press the CALIBRATE button.

It will say LOAD BACKING. At this point you must REMOVE the tags completely.

Press CONTINUE.

It will then say REMOVE RIBBON.

Just pull the ribbon to the side so that it does not block the ribbon sensor.

After pulling the ribbon away from the sensor,

CLOSE THE PRINT HEAD.

Hit Continue.

It will now say CALIBRATING PLEASE WAIT
It will then display RELOAD ALL

Reload the labels, making sure to position the end of one label and the beginning of the next label between the red optical sensor.

Then, while keeping the label in that position, move the ribbon back to the normal position, and close the print head. Then hit CONTINUE.
It will then display MEDIA AND RIBBON CALIBRATE

It will calibrate automatically at this point.

Hit the SETUP button.

Hit the NEXT/SAVE button.

You are all done.


Note that this is the intermediate way of calibrating the unit; normally it is done with the CALIBRATE button at the bottom of the front panel. If both of the above do not work, read below (in blue) FIRST-if that doesn't do the trick, then you can do a "hard reset" by powering the unit down, holding the PAUSE and the FEED button at the same time, and while holding them down, turning back on the power. This should only be used as a last resort, however, because it resets everything to factory settings. (NOT a good thing!)

Please be advised that if the intermediate calibration does not correct the issue, then you should use a bottle of 92% rubbing alcohol/Isopropyl alcohol (you can buy at CVS or any pharmacy for less than 2 dollars) and cotton swabs to clean both the top sensor and the bottom sensor-make sure to turn off the power FIRST, and make sure to allow a minute or so for the alcohol to dry after doing the cleaning. The combination of cleaning the sensor and doing the intermediate calibration procedure is about 95% effective.

I am passing this on from experience. The first time we got the 'ribbion out' error, we had to call the big service company in excess of 400.00 to come out. So when she did the above and had it runing in about 2 minutes, I asked the serice person to let me document the procedure. So you get the benefit without having to spend the big bucks!

Better way to conserve ink?


Sad but true. This is how printer mfgrs make their money...selling ink.

It's cheaper to take your photos on a memory card or CD to CVS Pharmacy and have them printed

Printing black ink


some canon printers come with a utility program that has a whole host of troubleshooting programs.

if yours came with this, try looking in it for a nozzle cleaner or head cleaner utility.

im thinking the generic ink may have gummed up the printer nozzles.

if that doesnt work, take a Q-Tip and clean the heads and nozzles on the cartridge with denatured alcohol (~$10; pick it up at local pharmacy maybe? i got mine through the local grocery stores pharmacy).

let me know if that works for you. got a couple other ideas.

Used to print pharmacy medication administration records. Problem!


This sounds (vaguely) familiar; I maintained these excellent workhorses years ago.

It sounds as if the initial settings have changed or been changed that allow one to set paper length, default font and so forth.

Oddly, I saw the service manual first, here:
