You are probably using Plot style table (.CTB) file.
In this table lineweights are assigned to specific layers which means that this will override your lineweight as set in your drawing.
To check this set the Plot style table (.ctb) to none.
Also check mark the "Plot with lineweights" checkbox.
If correct the lineweight will be visible in the print preview.

In short: the "CTB" file determines the lineweight plot setting and preview.
