Setting Up The Okidata ML 320Turbo

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

 

 

 

The OKIDATA MICROLINE 320 TURBO printer is recommended for printing onto pre-printed forms from the FRAZER system. Some changes need to be made to the factory settings before printing from Frazer to ensure proper alignment.

 


Make sure there is no paper in the printer.

 


Take the plastic guard off the front of the printer so the ink cartridge is visible. On the lower left side is a blue lever - move it to the front of the printer as far as it will go so that it is next to a "3" or even a "5".

 


On the upper right side of the printer, make sure the gray lever is in the middle position, sticking up straight in the air. That is the top feed position.

 


On the paper tray, push the gray paper guides as far to the right as possible. The left paper guide will line up with an imprint of a piece of paper.  All forms will be loaded touching this left paper guide.
