ok, this is what i did. the ribbon wasn't advancing on it. i found that the little thingy that turns the ribbon was stripped out. i went ahead and superglued it. no big deal. do this i had to remove the carraige and go into the gears. i put it back together now the print head carraige moves to the left and just grinds. kinda like it needs to be callibrated. after about 15 seconds of grinding it moves back to the center like it's supposed to. i called okidata and all they can tell me is "bring it to an authorized service center". the closest one is over an hour away and i don't want to do that. any ideas?
