SOURCE: oki 320 turbo, serial interface, how do I change

Hello,

To change the settings, make sure you have a good ribbon installed.

Press the MODE button. The SEL light will go out. Menu light will come on.

Press the GROUP button until the printer prints something like:

Serial Interface Parity None

To change the Parity, press SET. A new line will print as:

Serial Interface Parity Odd

Press SET until the Item is the one you want.

Then Press the ITEM button. It will then print:

Serial Interface Serial Data 7 or 8 bits 8

Again if you want to change it, press SET. Otherwise go to the next Item.

Continue using the ITEM button to choose the item you want to review or change and the SET button to change the selection.

When you have made all the changes verify by going through all of the items with the ITEM button. When you are satisfied, Press the MODE button to save all of the changes. (The Menu light will go out.)

If you have any trouble Comment back.

Thanks for using Fixya.

This is a SNIP of a rather LONG FIX:

Found here:
http://forums.windrivers.com/showthread.php?7080-RESOLVED-Okidata-Microline-184-Turbo

"Just purchased this thing and am running it a machine to print checks with (Win95, p1-200, 48 Mb ram). The Oki dot matrix printers don't give you drivers, they tell you to use the drivers from Win95 disk. Sure... (just lazy if you ask me :-) OK using the Oki Microline 184 IBM Turbo driver the thing works fine, EXCEPT that it *always* prints in NLQ mode no matter what the settings in the control panel, it just switches to NLQ before each print job. So... we switch to a "generic text" driver and it works fine that way EXCEPT that it no longer recognises the custom paper length (8.5" wide X 7" long) Now here's the wierd part... IF I switch back to the win95 driver, re-accept the custom paper size, print a test page (in NLQ of course), switch back to the generic driver, re-accept the the custom paper size, switch the printer to normal (non NLQ), and print it works fine with the custom paper size and non-NLQ mode until the next time it needs to print. The printer remains ON 24/7, so its not reseting itself. It just seems that with the Win95 driver there is no way to set it to print in anything but NLQ AND the generic driver refuses to keep the custom paper sizes in memory. Anyone seen this before? Never came accross this myself. I may just end up sending this thing back and getting an Epson or someting else."

AND THERE IS THIS:
"This is like going back to the dark ages....most of those old impact printers had dip switches to set things like default print quality. Additionally, Oki's usually came in two 'flavors'--plain Oki and IBM Oki. It's important that you install the correct driver between the two options..."

Oki 321 turbo in PPR emulation mode, does a form


Generally the form feed character is sent by your software. Try setting the page length in the printer setup to be the length of one label.

Try this:

Okidata 320 turbo microline prints jibberish


sounds like a job was sent to the printer with the wrong driver. There is no way to purge it just load some paper and let it run until it stops. They make sure your emulation matches the driver youa are using. Example Epson 9pin compatiable or OKI ML320 Turbo-IBM drive you want the emulation set to Epson FX. Or if using the OKI ML320 Drive you want the emulation set to ML.

Oki microline 320 turbo


Your Oki model does not need drivers, for they are already contained since Windows 98 and up. However, if it still doesn't work, check that the printer emulation is set to IBM and then install a new printer using the IBM Proprinter II/III driver, also contained in Windows.

Be blessed.

print out your menu of the printer and load the IBM Proprinter driver in windows ,your printer default driver is IBM Proprinter this will sort out the problem.you have probably loaded a OKI driver while the printer is set for IBM.Hope this helps.
