You should clean the printer every six months (or after
about 300 hours of operation).
1. Turn the printer OFF.
2. Remove the paper from the path.
3. Open the access cover and remove the pull-up roller
assembly.
4. Use a clean, dry cloth to dust the area around the
carriage shaft and platen. Be sure to remove any loose
particles of paper.
5. Reinstall the pull-up roller assembly.
6. Close the access cover.
Never use solvents or strong detergents on the
cabinet — they could damage the housing.

Print is very faint shortly after changing ribbon.


The head may not be close enough - most dot printers have an adjustment for paper thickness (1-5 pages) check this. Also the head could just be going bad - they loose length after beating on the bar over years. Another thing is the bar (or plattem) gets worn down and has a grove in it over time. Lastly the ribbon maybe junk - they sit in a whearhouse for years and get dry. Sorry - very generic answers.- but true

This would be the print head pins not moving forward or the ribbon bunched up at the top.

I am trying to hook my printer up to my new computer and the disk I have is not working. i do not have a cd for microline 590 elite dot matrix drivers


The drivers should be on the company website, if these are not working for you the generic text driver in Windows will work for text only printing. If you do graphics or formatted invoices, etc. on the printer Epson and Okidata both make pretty generic print drivers that should work for a microline printer.
