Question about OKI B4250n Laser Printer

Have to put printer "online" after every page

After printing 1-2 pages, the printer goes offline, and I have to push the top button. It then prints 1-2 pages and does the same thing again. My "paper jam" light is blinking all the time. There is no jam, though. Any help?

Tec says - what sort of blink ??? blinking error light on your printer indicates many things besides jam and there are 5 types of blinks too ( odds are wants toner)

Here is your user manual that explains

Original software includes a status monitor that reports printers errors on your computer screen

After every page I print, the green light goes out, and I have to press online to get it to continue printing.

Thats ..paper size mismatch, check the paper size settings of your printer in printer properties is the same as what document or document program is set to under page size of the document you wish to print, if these dont match the printer goes offline so you can put in what it's been told is the right size paper or press online to force it to print in your case check paper size in both locations and you should be right, there are other things but 99% of the time..thats ya baby;)

Please follow the steps given below to perform a self test on the printer:

1. Switch off the printer.
2. Press and hold down the paper feed button.

4. When the printer starts to print, release the paper feed button.
5. When the first page is printed, switch off the power (otherwise the printer will keep on printing).

Tally6215 "Config 1" Error

The 'Config 1" message on the T6215 is not indicating an error message, this message is simply indicating that Config 1 of the 10 configurations that you can set on the T6125 is loaded.

With the Config 1 message loaded you should still be able to print so long as the printer is ONLINE and does not have any other error lights on.
If the printer is not printing I would recommend printing a configuration page to check the printer is working OK.
To print a configuration page follow these steps;
Put the printer OFFLINE
Press the DOWN ARROW to HELP

The printer should print a configuration page, if this prints correctly I would recommend checking the settings in particular the Interface and Emulation settings.
I would also recommend checking connectivity between the system and the printer to check the print jobs can get to the printer.
Also check the system to ensure the correct printer driver and printer setup is being chosen.

Tally 2280+. While printing, goes offline and displays paperjam.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud
