Question about OKI MICROLINE 280 Elite Matrix Printer

OKI ML 280 Elite

Hi im using this printer with my DELL PC. it dose not print rite, when I do a Test print. It prints some ODD characters ( eg. @@@@@@@@@EQT@@@@@) . Ive tried changing the Pitch and Mode and still comes out with the same result.
I believe there is no problem with the comm's as the printer starts to print once the command is given.

Would be a great help if someone could shed some light on this

Kind regards

Joseph

You have the Printer emulation set incorrectly. I think it comes as IBM as default and you should try Epson instead. Its a trial and error thing but am sure emulation is incorrect.

SOURCE: Paper Jam in OKI B4300 Led Printer

This printer is designed with a dual toner/drum chamber. Do not separate these two parts. Upon opening the lid, you will find the toner/drum assembly right in front of you. Pick it up with both hands and pull straight up. After that, you should be able to take the jammed papers. Know this: once a paper is jammed, printing another paper will NEVER take the first out. Just make sure to remove the complete papers. If they break, make sure you extract all the pieces.

Probably the monitor-chip on the board is working inproperly.

Consult the vendor or manufacuturer.

But before this, you may download new monitor driver from the manufacturer.

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.

Oki microline 280 feeds paper continiously after a file print, and won't stop till i pull power cable


First, reinstall the driver and be sure it's the correct driver for this printer. If you drive a word document does it do the same? If not, chanses are the db application is constantly sending form feeds to the printer and the printer will do whatever it's told to do. Try a different printer setup in the db application.

Check printer setup where you define carrige return and line feed options. Alot of times you need to set printer to do an auto CR on reciept of LF or auto LF on reciept of CR. I run into this all the time.

Only printing tasks from some computers


Print the Menu Setting out on printer and menu setting out on pc. Match sure emulation matcheds on both sides. If using serial make sure serial settings match on both sides. If parallel, check the bois on the PC, change parallel port type to EPP instead of ECP or SPP.

Abnormal printing with continuous tone


this sounds like it is doing something called a "hex dump" basicaly printing all ASCII characters. okis tend to do this from time to time if l;eft on for a significant period with no data sent to it. the only advice given by oki is to switch it off when not using it unfortunatly Hope this helps Cops Pete@wedotoners.com
