Check if the Pico fuse is blown ? next to the heat sink on the transisitor array with the number 2025.if the fuse is gone than the fuse plus the 2025 transistor must be replaced.

1) First Disconnect the printer cable from the printer and computer, inspect the cable for damage
replace cable, if you have a different cable even better

2) Reboot PC and Re-install printer driver

3) if these steps do not work, it is possible there is a problem with the main board in the printer, sometimes, removing the board and re-installing it can help (dirty contacts inside)

but usually with problems like this is the drivers or cable

hope this helps
thanks for rating

This sounds like a problem in the computer program that is sending the prints to the printers....especially since it is happening in several of them.

Re-seat your Printhead. If problem persists Replace the Main Board.

Printing trouble, OKI microline 320 Turbo. All of a sudden it's not printing the right side of the invoice. I have no idea how to increase the printing area so this doesn't happen. Please help!


There are 3 competing controls. 1) Software 2) Printer driver 3) Front panel. Software control overrides printer driver. Printer driver overrides front panel. Your software settings therefore dominate. That said, you can choose to have the front panel settings "dominate." Those front panel settings may enable you to change margin widths. Even though this may be possible, you may well find the solution is within the invoice software's print setup where you may have to check some box to enable 11 inch printing or whatever is required. But that requires knowledge of the invoice software program. I am unable to determine if you are encountering a sudden failure of a system previously working. If this is a printer failure rather than a software configuration problem, you will have to check the okidata help.

Here is some reference material:

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 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.
