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.

Alarm light on, won't print


is it on a print server?? try connecting directly to a computer to do a test, or turn off the printer for 5 minutes than try it again if it still wont work, your printer needs a good cleaning you probably have a peace of paper stuck in a censor some where most likely the paper feed... down underneath the feed roller

Good luck!

I try to print and the paper won't advance, prints everything on one line.


The unit needs to be cleaned and vaccuumed, pay carefull attention to the paper feed rollers. You might consider getting a Service Manual for it, if you do here is a link.

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!

Printer keeps printing over the =same line, paper is not moving


Theirs a small gear in the gear train on the left hand side that turns the paper roller(Platen).
It has lost a couple of teeth. Has the paper is no longer feeding the print head simply keeps printing on the same place.
You need a service repair.

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.

print out your menu of the printer and load the IBM Proprinter driver in windows ,your printer default driver is IBM Proprinter this will sort out the problem.you have probably loaded a OKI driver while the printer is set for IBM.Hope this helps.
