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.

Microswitch that detects out-of-paper seems to be working in reverse. With no paper loaded, depressing the switch gives an alarm. Release the switch and the printer will go online.


if you have ever tried to disassemble the micro switch, chances are you might replace the connector the other way around, if not then the problem is the micro switch itself.

JUST BOUGHT A OKIDATA 321 TURBO 9 PIN PRINTER OFF EBAY. WE HAD ONE BEFORE & IT QUIT WORKING SO WE ASSUMED WE COULD JUST PLUG THIS ONE IN & IT WOULD START WORKING BUT THE ALARM BUTTON KEEPS COMING...


If the alarm light is lit constantly it usually indicates that the paper is not loaded, it should go out when paper is loaded. If it is coming on and staying on for a while during printing then there is a problem with the paper out sensor and it may need cleaning. If it is flashing then the other lights that are lit indicate the problem.

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!
