Your printers alignment is out that is why it prints only in one direction.

My OKI 591 is only printing going one direction, not backwards and forwards like before so it's very very slow. Is there a setting that causes this? Thank you


Usually when this printer prints in HIGH QUALITY, it will only print one way, to avoid misalignment issues between the one pass one way and the next pass coming from the opposite direction.

If I am right, lowering the quality of your print to "normal" or "draft" should give you back the "2-way printing"

Printer keeps printing over the =same line, paper is not moving


Theirs a small gear in the gear train on the left hand side that turns the paper roller(Platen).
It has lost a couple of teeth. Has the paper is no longer feeding the print head simply keeps printing on the same place.
You need a service repair.

How do I set the MX700 for bidirectional printing? It sounds like it is only printing in one direction.


Bidirections can have two meanings with printers.

One is where the computer communicates with the printer and the printer communicates with the PC

The other is usually found on tractor feed or other form feed printers where the printer can reverse the direction the paper travels. This is not seen as often as it once was.

Yours is an AIO inkjet printer and these do not generally do paper feed direction changes.

Make sure the option for bidirectional printing is set correctly.

Try it both ways

Make sure you are not printing too far to the left or the right - the print head can hit the end of its run and lose its place.

Assuming that you are using the same paper and have not changed any of the consumables you should do the following:

1. Clean LED head with lens cleaner or soft tissue.
  1. Remove the toner cartridge and give it a few shakes then reinstall it.
  2. The Toner Could be low so Change toner cartridge.
4. Make sure that the paper is not damp as this will cause fading and poor quality printing and images.
  1. The image drum may have been light contaminated so remove it from the printer and store it in a totally dark place for several hours then reinstall it.
  2. If the image drum is dirty then wipe it very gently with soft tissues, being careful not to scratch it.
  3. Open the top cover and check to be sure that each toner cartridge is fully seated and that each toner cartridge lock lever is pushed all the way back.
  4. Press the top cover release latch and open, then close, the cover.
  5. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA TYPE and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  6. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA WEIGHT and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  7. Possibly set the value of media weight in the menu to the next heaviest one.
  8. Check PRINT MENURESOLUTION setting and set to 600 x 1200DPI
  9. Check PRINT MENUTONER SAVE MODE and make sure this is OFF
  10. Check PRINT MENU – MONO PRINT SPEED and make sure this is set to MIXED SPEED

PRINTS NOT ON DEMAND


The types of printers that you have actually should be assigned to a free port, you cant setup 2 printers on the same port. check at the back of the printer the physical attachment of two printers the OKI and the Epson, if Oki is set to lpt1 then assign port from printer properties for oki to lpt1, and lpt2 on epson. 1 printer- 1 port, so by then check if the box for enable bidirectional support is check, remove the check mark from the box by clicking on it then hit apply then try printing a test page then try printing from application.
