Question about OKI MicroLine 420 Matrix Printer
We are running this new printer on a MAC. The IP address is correct and the driver is installed. When we send a job it goes into the printer que but is automatically thrown into "pause" mode. Manually deactivating pause makes it attempt to print but reverts back to pause mode. We are frustrated. Any suggestions?
Use the IBM proprinter driver for this printer and select IBM in the menu of the printer.
Hope this helps.

Does it have a control panel or buttons on the printer itself?
If so, are any of them blinking or red?
Sometimes an error will cause a pause in the printer and you have to press one of the buttons to get it to start back up again.
This is the link to the manuf. website. I did a search on your model, theres a few so i guessed. but the manuals are available along with drivers.
I suggest you go and update them and go through the PDF and see if there is anything partaining to this issue.
I went through the PDF a bit and didnt see anything partaining to the PAUSE issue but try going through and see if anything is it.
On the printer icon on the bottom right of your task bar, right click on the printer icon and see if you can select CANCEL print job, then try unpausing it. Also, power off and then power back on and see if that clears it.
You may have to un-install the printer and re-install it and update the drivers to clear it.
Sometimes a Print job will get stuck in que when theres a jam or something and it wont continue till the issue is resolved, then you open and close the top cover and that resets it, it rechecks then continues.
