Question about OKI MICROLINE 320 Turbo Matrix Printer
We have a Okidata ML320 used for printing continuous forms. We are using the rear feed, page length is 11". We have it hooked up as a parrallel printer. We are emulating a IBM. This printer is fairly new and has done this since day one. The printer feeds a blank sheet of paper between each page printed. Is there a fix for this?
