Re: Okidata 395ML

I'm sure everything is plugged ok. I tried a new main board this afternoon, now all the lights are ok but alarm is blinking. It seems like the sensor for paper is not working anymore. I have to start from the beggining, maybe I forgot a connector. I think the sensor's connector is near the powersupply. Anyway, thank you very much :)

My Okidata 320 microline print cartridge is leaking ink. What does this mean?

The Okidata Microline 320 uses a ribbon. If it smears, just back the tension lever off until it goes away. Smearing will happen with multi-part forms unless you back off the printhead.

Cant get my printer to line properly for invoice printing.

Setting Top of Form, Forms Tear-Off ON

(Step A)

! If you turn the platen knob when the printer is turned

on, you will cause the Top of Form to mis-align. Always

turn the printer off before turning the platen knob!

1 Turn the printer ON.

2 Park the paper.

3 With paper out of the unit, (red alarm light should be on)

press SHIFT (1) and QUIET/TOF (5) to reset the current

Top of Form.

4 Press FF/LOAD (3) to load the paper.

5 Press SEL/MENU (6) to take the printer off line.

The SEL light goes out.

6 Wait until the paper moves up to the tear position, then

press and hold TEAR (4).

The paper moves to the current Top of Form.

Keep pressing and holding TEAR.
7 Press and hold SHIFT and release TEAR.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I got a new computer and tryed to hook up my okidata c5200ne printer to it(old comp had xp new onw had vista) and install the driver for okidata website and run the driver but it would finish and wouldn't...

if you downloaded the right driver for it has to work sure that you have the driver for vista operating system ...and be sure that is for the kind of vista you run ...(meaning on 32 or 64 depends on which one you use)
as I already took a look they are available on the manufacturer site ..(okidata)

Mac-Compatible Impact Printer???

Okidata works pretty good for 4 part forms. I've worked on dot matrix printers in the past and found that a lot of them jam with that big of a form and eventually burn the motor out a lot faster. Not a problem to handle on an Okidata.

I have yet to find a USB interface for one so that might be a challenge. Apple used to use a round serial interface. You might be able to find a workaround for that using a USB hub. I have a Belkin one at home that carries an Apple serial interface.

Another idea that could work is to use a parallel based print server with a eternet port on it. Then you can run it on a TCP/IP. The only time you need to use a browser is for administration setup on the print server by typing in the TCP/IP address into the browser.

Safari can work in place of Firefox. Make sure the printer server has Mac drivers for it.

Okidata Model# GE5253P

An online manual here: There is probably a top of form setting which needs to be checked & corrected. I assume you've checked tab/margin settings in your software & printer setup?
