Question about OKI MICROLINE 184 Turbo Matrix Printer
I hit current call report and the alarm turns on it would not print. Have to turn it off and on. When I turn it back on the red light is off but when it starts to print the red light goes back on and the printer stops.
Also, I could never get the time to set at the right am or pm.
SOURCE: Printing problems
Someone else may have an exact diagnosis on this, but here is one possibility: The printhead home sensor may be defective. This sensor, either an optical device or mechanical switch senses when the head is in the home or leftmost position. This information is used to determine start point of print. A mechanical switch will be more prone to problems, but often fixed by cleaning it. Again, someone else may have actually seen and diagnosed this problem, and could give the definitive answer.

We swapped out the printer for another one we had in the office that was working. The new printer also got the alarm light. From that we concluded that it was a bad serial card. We swapped the serial card from another printer, and the original printer started working perfectly. Now we just need to find out where we can purchase another serial card, as we have no more 'spares' around here.

You need to set it in Menu Mode -
Press MODE - the SEL light will go out. The menu light goes on. Press Group and the first line of the menu prints.
Gropu of related items keep pressing group until you see the print mode menu printed - once on the line press SET - keep until the printer prints the setting you want.
After you are finished press MODE to save the changes

In my own experience, Okidata printers have a nasty habit of collecting a lot of paper dust. To start out, I would suggest a really good cleaning, with no paper in the machine, with a can of compressed air. If that does not solve your problem, you might have to replace your feed wheel assembly. Hope this helps!
