Oki microline 280 eco jumps around .75" for each new page

My oki microline 280 eco jumps around .75" for each new page of my continuous paper. I'm using 9.5 x 11 paper, have my printer page length set to 11", printer setup is set to 11" and I've set my top of form .75" from the top of the page. What is causing this additional 0.75 skip?

Using Win7 - switches to NLQ mode every time regadless of driver used - Okidata Elite (Microline) 520, Okidata Elite (IBM) or Okidata 520. Tried changing drivers - none other available for Win7. With the...

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.

Installed a new okidata microline 320 turbo dot matrix printer and now the tear/set button does not set the paper where i need it to as my old printer did. How can i change the tear line setting?

Make sur that the paper length is correct in the settings. With paper in the printer hold down the "SHIFT" button then press the "SEL/MENU" button. The "SEL" indicatr will light up. Now press the "PARK" button, a settings page will print. Select your paper length you require by going through the settings, if you press the "LF" button it wil take you through the different groups of settings, the "FF/LOAD" button wil take you through the different items in the groups and the "TEAR" button will change the settings on the different items. To save the new settings hold down the "SHIFT" button and press the "SEL/MENU" button.

Oki microline 280 feeds paper continiously after a file print, and won't stop till i pull power cable

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.

Oki microline 280

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.

EVERY TIME PRINT GET A EXTRA SHEET BLANK PAPER

Printer setup defines different emulator you can use such as IBM Pro/ Brother/Generic. Try a different one that as set now. See if that helps. Does it do the same of printing with a different
application? You may have page length setup wrong in application.
