Starts off printing normal than fades. new ribbon in it

Check the new ribbon and see if the printer has worn out one spot.
If you move the print head manually side to side the blue knob on the ribbon should spin. If it does not make sure you have the correct ribbon and it is installed correctly.

Re-install the printer ribbon. It's probably slipping or dragging on the head mechanism, and the printer synchronization control is slowing everything down to compensate.

Its not printing

Make sure that you have a good ribbon installed and that the ribbon is advancing as the carriage moves. If the ribbon is not advancing it will only print until the ink has been used up on the section of ribbon stuck in front of the print head. It will also need a new carriage if the ribbon is not advancing.

Problem with new installed printhead

If I remember the 320, there is a head-gap adjustment that is normally moved for replacement of the head and must be reset again. Check your manual for that term; 'Head gap adjustment'
