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.

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!

Solved this problem by going into the bios and changing the port from ECP to EPP, and then uninstalling the ECP port in device manager and replacing it with a standard parallel port configuration, no problems since doing that.

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.

Feed problem


line gear has a broken tooth on it, possibly. or you have a sliver of paper stuck under the plenum (large black roller that paper wraps around to feed). you can pop the cover off, by pulling the front edge up and away from the base (clips in only, no screws). remove the plenum with tabs that pull up on either side of it. pull out the plenum, and check for any paper under that area. good luck.
