Question about OKI MicroLine 420 Matrix Printer

Open Question

Oki ML 420 Mac issues.

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?

I just had this exact same problem - same printer, same Jetdirect model. Mine turned out to be the parallel printer mode setting inside the JetDirect. I connected to the configuraiton page by IP, then changed the Parallel mode from "AUTO" to "Centronics", tested it, and it worked fine after that. Hope it helps.

How do I get my canon ip6000 printer to recognize my Mac computer


You need to go on your mac and download the driver and install it on your mac.
https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/printers/support-inkjet-printer/ip-series/pixma-ip6000d
Assuming printer only has UBS interface Mac should recognise the printer is connected to it once you install the driver .
If it has an internet protocol ip address tcp/IP then give printer an ip address in the range of the MAC and it will be detected by the mac.

Tip

Set up a Wireless printer on your Router for use with a wired PC


First install the Wireless printer driver using the Wizard by connecting either the Ethernet cable to the router during the install process when asked this will set up your wireless laptop with the correct printer port based on the Wireless Node Name it will also use the printers inbuilt MAC address. This is standard install and will work for all your Wireless PC's however if you have a Wired (ethernet) PC connected to your Router this process will not work a wireless port will not work with a wired computer.

Follow my 3 steps below to set up standard IP ports for Wired PC's also connected to your Router.

STEP 1: Find your MAC address for the wireless printer (all types of Network Cards will have one so this is no different) this will either be found under the LCD control panel or may even be printer on the bottom of the printer or Print server if it is seperate set this MAC address with an IP address as a reservation in your admin panel of your router 192.168.0.10 in this example.

You can normally enter your Router this using 192.168.0.1 typed in your browser (not the search engine) as all routers are different check here for your make and model http://www.routerpasswords.com if you can't find the MAC address try using ipconfig /all from them command prompt it will be the physical address aka the MAC address

STEP 2:
Install the Printer as a USB printer port by connecting the USB cable to the PC you want the wired printer driver installed on when finished go to the printer driver properties for the driver you have just added, click the port tab and click add standard IP port as shown below, then disconnect the USB lead this is only required to make sure the correct inf file is used on the driver install and connect your Ethernet cable from you computers NIC to a spare RJ45 socket on the Router.

STEP 3: To check that the Printer has the correct IP address then test using the tracert OR ping command for the IP address that you have reserved on your router, this is a necessary step otherwise when the lease expires it may take another IP address and your Printer driver will not work unless your printer has the reserved address, it will throw a printer error.

c:ping 192.168.0.10

(this example shows a Standard TCP/IP Port for a Brother DCP-340CW)

Also check in your routers admin panel to see if the Wireless Printer is set up with the correct IP and MAC address, if you still can't find it eliminate your known MAC addresses from all your network cards the one left will be your Printer Server NIC in your Wireless Printer.

If you have setup the incorrect IP and or MAC address you will get this window when you try to add the TCP/IP port

That's it try a test print and you will see it burst into life.... Happy Printing

Has a code 016-302 and will not work


This error is almost always caused by a corrupt print job or driver. If the machine was working fine it may be as simple as canceling the print job and restarting everything (computer and printer).
Before sending the job to print again, it would be worthwhile to print a test page. If you can, you know the issue is specific to whatever you're trying to print. If you cannot, you know it's a most likely a driver issue.

Other possibilities:
- a recent OS update/upgrade killed the driver. This happened to a fair number of Windows 8 users.

-You're attempting to print from MAC but don't have the printer/driver setup for postscript. Weird but true, even in 2015 PCs and MACS still use different protocols to print to laser printers. (Not an issue for ink jets)

If this is the issue, here are the directions to setup the printer and MAC to work on your network. Notice the printer (wireless or not) should be wired for config-

PRINTER SETUP:
(1) Connect printer to the ethernet port
(2) On the controler of the printer, select menu
(3) with the cursors (down) select Admin Menu, and press ok (the center key)
(4) the text "wired network" will appear. Press OK
(5) Move the coursor down to tcp/ip. Press ok
(6) "get IP address" will appear. Press ok
(7) select panel. Press ok
(8) press "menu" and repeat (1) to (5)
(9) "get IP address" will appear. Move the cursor down to "IP Address". Press OK
(10) with the coursor select write the IP address among the margins of your Router. The Gateway numbers shlould be the same as the ip number of your router. MAsK is always 255.255.255.0
(11) press menu and restart the printer

IN YOUR MAC
(1)Install the 3110cn modules version 2.1.3 Build 5 (usually in the CD, or in DELL site download area)
(2) Open Setup Print Utility and select "Add a printer"
(3) Select IP printer (any of the possibilities you are offered are ok), WRITE THE ADDRESS YOU WROTE IN YOUR PRINTER
(4)In printing using select Dell

You can move the printer to wireless, just keep the IP address the same.

Hope this helps!

Go to "IP" in the add printer section. It is a "globe" at the top of the page. In address put the address of your printer there and name the printer at the bottom. Worked for me.

I cannot connect to my 3Com OfficeConnect Wireless (3crwps10075-us) Print Server 3crwps10075


Check you firewalls. Sometimes you will have to allow certain mac addresses or certain ip addresses (may be less secure than the mac address), then change sharing level to full, before things begin to work.

Please post back and let me know if this helps!

Connecting a Oki C5300N as a 2:nd printer in my Mac-network..


Good Day Joromich,

Sounds like your problem is just an IP address conflict. The easiest way to fix this is going to be through the front panel of the printer. You will need to configure the NIC to DHCP AUTO. This will allow the switch/router to configure the printer to the IP address schema your network is using.

You should also check you switch/router settings to ensure if you are using MAC address filtering (this has nothing to do with your Mac computer). The MAC address is the physical hardware address of any NIC device. It is the "permanent" device identifier that the manufacturer has assigned to the NIC. If your switch/router is configured to use MAC address filtering you will need to know this address. It will be a series of HEX values similar to this:

AE:02:4F:3B:55:2F

And is usually located on a sticker on the outside of the NIC adapter, if not you might need to remove the card from the printer to check it, however you should be able to obtain a NIC configuration page from the printer through the control panel. If you are using this additional level of network security (helps to prevent rogue devices from attaching to the network), you will need to add the MAC address to the switch/router filtering table. Most home network users do not use this additional layering of security, but when using wireless access points/routers, every extra bit of network security helps.

Once you have reconfigured the printer for you network IP schema through the use of DHCP, the network should now see the device. If you are configuring your printer drivers to print to the IP address of the device, you should disable the DHCP AUTO setting once everything is working. Otherwise the switch/router will replace the printer IP address once the lease is expired then causing your printer not to be accessible again.

Once the switch/router has provided the new printer with an IP address, you will be able to access the internal web page of the printer through your Internet browser. At this point you can then change the IP address configuration to DHCP OFF. This will prevent the printer NIC from making an IP address request and keep the IP address that has been assigned as a STATIC address.

Configuring the printer driver on the Mac is easy, once the device has been added to the network, the Mac Add Printer Utility will see the IP address of the printer and you can use this to print directly to it rather than using AppleTalk. As for problem of not having the orignal install CD, not a problem as the printer is listed within the Mac OS printer table. If you want to use the Oki OEM driver follow the link listed here:

http://my.okidata.com/pp-C5300n.nsf/openingdrivermenu?OpenFrameSet

Select the one you want and install it as usual. Hope this helps get you going.

Cheers, Happy New Year!

Unable to get Xante printer to work


When I send a job to the printer via Ethernet, nothing happens on the printer. I only get a solid red light. Why?
This is an indication of a media size mismatch. Make sure that the correct media size is set on the tray to which you are printing, and try the job again.

Check the receive buffer on the Oki. I usually set it to the highest (88k or 128k). You might also check the print head gap if you are printing multi part invoices. If the print head is too close it may overheat and stop printing. If you have a different printer, swap it out and see if it prints correctly. It may be a problem with the JetDirect 170x, not the printer.
