Re: print fragmented documnts
Step1 If you're setting up the printer or changing the toner or ink cartridge for the first time, double-check the instructions to make sure that you installed the cartridge correctly and, for new printers, that you have removed all the pieces of cardboard or plastic packing material. Step 2 Check to see whether paper is feeding from the paper tray. If it's not leaving the tray at all, try feeding a page manually (if that's an option) or using a different paper tray. Sometimes a problem with the tray can be traced to a broken spring or a piece of plastic. Step 3 If paper is feeding from the tray but jamming in the printer, examine where the jam is occurring and then inspect the printer carefully to see if you can find what is causing the problem. A piece of paper, for instance, might be blocking the paper path. Step 4 If paper is feeding through the printer but coming out blank, check to see whether the printer is out of toner or ink. A defective toner or ink cartridge could be the problem.

First check the printer itself is working OK by printing a test page.
Most printers have a power-on self test (eg press feed button while pressing power on - please consult your manual). If the test print is OK, then it's the PC or connecting cable. You could try any other PC or laptop (you would have to instal your printer software first) but just try re-installing your printer software first on YOUR computer. If that doesn't work try any other PC or Laptop available as directed above.
USE A FILE THAT YOU HAVE PRINTED OK BEFORE IF POSS.
If none of the works then the cable is suspect.
I had same problem and when I installed OKI B4350 (PCL) driver it started working fine.
Before I had OKI B4350(PS) driver installed and it gave me invalid data error everytime I've pressed print.
I hope this works for you too.
Try to perform an offline test print using your printer alone
To do this, power off your printer first
Press and hold the LF/FF button on the printer panel then power on. The printer will perform its own printing ( lines of pattern )
If it does it without problems ( no MENU lights came on ) the printer should be OK. If not try replacing the printer main control board.
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.
this sounds like it is doing something called a "hex dump" basicaly printing all ASCII characters. okis tend to do this from time to time if l;eft on for a significant period with no data sent to it. the only advice given by oki is to switch it off when not using it unfortunatly
Hope this helps
Sounds like driver problems. Cant solve problems without details like what opperating system, what driver, how it the printer attached, usb, paralel, network? Will it print a test page from the driver ok?
