My microline 420 stopped working

While I was printing my printer just stopped. No lights no power. I tried different outlets and a new cord. Could this be a blown fuse, and if it is where is this fuse located?

Thank You

The fuse is located right after the power switch before the power supply.

Machine stopped - alarm light flashing

just saw this yesterday. remove the top rear paper guide. on the left side between the tractor feed and the input slot for the paper, there is a sensor flag that pivots. check for paper scrap caught under the flag. it prevents the flag movement, causes a paper out alarm.

Oki microline 390fb alarm blinking, non stop, once the power is up need some guide how to settle this problem.

There are a few things that are possibly wrong with your printer. You may want to try completely unplugging and reinserting the cord into the power outlet. If that doesn't work, check your printers ink levels and ensure that there is no paper jam. Best of luck.

This would be the print head pins not moving forward or the ribbon bunched up at the top.

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.

When the alarm light is blinking what other lights are on. This is the fatal error code with the printer.

Remove the ribbon. if still not moving smoothly unit needs service. 3 year warranty on this unit brand new.
If you cannot move the carriage back and fourth accross,

there is a seriuois issue. unit requires service.

Font size

You can change the dfont size from the menu, but that setting afects the entire page of print. You different size fonts are controled from the codes sent to the printer from the software. Recreate the document, or create a document with a sample of that small print and see if the printer prints it.
