Microline 184 turbo 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.

SOURCE: Alarm light Microline 320 Turbo 9 pin printer - won't print

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

SOURCE: i have oki microline 320 elite and printer head jams

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!

Printer prints one line, then alarm light comes on and stops printing.


Sir the printer is giving line because the cartiage or toner is not of good quality so it does not melt properly and produces line while the alarm comes and stop printing is due to the problem in charging cathode or gutter

I've been using OKIDATE MICROLINE 320 PRINTER at work. I was printing something and I realized that I was printing the wrong page so to stop printing, I simply turned off the power and waited....


You would have to cancel the current print job from your computer for it to stop. Assuming you have access to a computer that is connected to that printer, you will have to find that printer by going to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Oki ML 320 then right click, select "See What's Printing" and cancel Current print job (I am also assuming you are using windows). I really hope this helps, if not add a comment clarifying your question, thanks.

Alarm light on, won't print


is it on a print server?? try connecting directly to a computer to do a test, or turn off the printer for 5 minutes than try it again if it still wont work, your printer needs a good cleaning you probably have a peace of paper stuck in a censor some where most likely the paper feed... down underneath the feed roller

Good luck!

Oki Microline Turbo 320 stopped working. When I turn it on makes some kind on noise but won't work.


does the printhead assembly move at all? try taking off the ribbon and moving it by hand with the power disconnected. try moving it to the right hand side before turning it back on, if it does not go all the way back to the left again try to find what is jamming it.

is the alarm or any other lights on?

NOT PRINTING DATA


This can be several issues:
First make sure your printer is a working printer. A quick test it to turn on and hold the "FORM FEED" and "ON-LINE" button when turning on the power. It will print the matrix of the possible characters and fonts. This is a good sign. If nothing, then it is dead.
Second; The printers baud rate and stop bit must match the computer that is printing to it. This is found on the back of the printer and in the PC in the particular program AND in the control panel.
They need to match, EXACTLY.
Third; Maybe I don;t need to say it but make sure you have inked ribbon
Forth; The paper thickness needs to be set on the printer. It is a small lever under the paper shield and on the left or right side.
Fifth; The serial cable must be good and a straight through cable and not a cross-over type.

Good Luck

Oki Microline 320 turbo alarm light


First, make sure that paper feed switch is set accordingly to the paper path you are using (rear feed, bottom feed or friction). If you make a change, turn the unit off and on.

If it is set correctly, there might be an obstruction on the printer top cover that interferes with the cover sensors. This forces the printer to think that the lid is still open and will signal it as you have described.

The last option will be a damage to the sensors or to the mainboard. This is rare, but if the case, you need a repair center.


Be blessed.
