Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have purchased a slightly used Okidata 395C color printer. The color ribbon installed is correct. To tell it print yellow - it comes out red. To tell it print blue - it comes out blue. To tell it print red - it comes out purple. To tell it print green - it comes out dark red. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I would say the ribbon is not installed correctly, and needs flipping so that red is at the other edge.

Okidata Dot Matrix Printers
So, the one thing that no one ever pointed out is that Okidata printer head jewels get lubricated VIA the ribbon. You MUST use at least 50 to 70% Brand name original cartridges, or suffer premature print head wear.

Once the printed character becomes blurry, get a REMANUFACTURED head, with the oiling wick. This lets you use all the cheap ribbons, by lubricating the jewels directly.

When you are all finished, enter the menu of the printer and play with REGISTRATION. Often you can make a crisper print by tweaking this setting.

Hello , i have a okidata microline 393c ,its happens that


Could you look in the manual and see what that alarm is for? It has been a while since I have seen a microline printer. Mostly businesses still use that kind of printer.
Id say the ribbon might be out.

Zebra print jus blue color


The "i" is the newer series. You will run into problem trying to install the P310C with the P310i drivers. More so if you are running Windows Vista. In that case don't even try.

If your computer has excepted the drivers that you have. Go into the Printer Properties; General Tab; Printer prefs; Advanced button in the bottom right corner ;next, and change the Ribbon type. K is for Black 1 color ribbon.
Try YMCKO for Full COlor. If the ribbon is also YMCKO.

New hookup - warning light going on


Take the ribbon out and try it. The carrige also advances the ribbon, and if it is knotted up, thats the problem. Also. look for a photo interupt sensor along the edge of the carrige near the sides of the printer. Chances are, the sensor got dirty and it can not find home.

Printer error, only prints one color


Did any of the ribbon come away, or tear when it broke, i have heard of small pieces lodging in the carriage or feeder. Check this very thoroughly as blockages can be very tiny. Check you correctly inserted the ribbon too, and it is the correct type of ribbon for your unit. (sounds silly but sometimes it ccan be that simple) try reinstalling printer, is the ribbon cartridge faulty? check it.
