SOURCE: Printing problems

Someone else may have an exact diagnosis on this, but here is one possibility: The printhead home sensor may be defective. This sensor, either an optical device or mechanical switch senses when the head is in the home or leftmost position. This information is used to determine start point of print. A mechanical switch will be more prone to problems, but often fixed by cleaning it. Again, someone else may have actually seen and diagnosed this problem, and could give the definitive answer.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

OKI MICROLINE 5521 PRINTER PROBLEM


Hi. Your printer may be in a need of basic service to clear up the jamming problem. The printer has comfiguration settings. If the configuration settings are correct, then there is no need to worry - just a basic service to the rear pressure rollers and front pressure rollers. Sometimes when the printer prints for a long time over months, then there is quite a lot of build-in paper pieces inside the platten assembly. Either if it jams, often there is sometimes piece of paper stuck below the platten assembly or in between the pressure rollers...
