What driver are you using for this printer? Try loading a Epson LQ1050 driver and try again.

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.

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.

Try to perform an offline test print using your printer alone
To do this, power off your printer first
Press and hold the LF/FF button on the printer panel then power on. The printer will perform its own printing ( lines of pattern )
If it does it without problems ( no MENU lights came on ) the printer should be OK. If not try replacing the printer main control board.

Hope this helps

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!

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.

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.

EVERY TIME PRINT GET A EXTRA SHEET BLANK PAPER


Printer setup defines different emulator you can use such as IBM Pro/ Brother/Generic. Try a different one that as set now. See if that helps. Does it do the same of printing with a different
application? You may have page length setup wrong in application.
