Question about OKI MICROLINE 520 Matrix Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
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.

sounds like a job was sent to the printer with the wrong driver. There is no way to purge it just load some paper and let it run until it stops. They make sure your emulation matches the driver youa are using. Example Epson 9pin compatiable or OKI ML320 Turbo-IBM drive you want the emulation set to Epson FX. Or if using the OKI ML320 Drive you want the emulation set to ML.

To change the settings, make sure you have a good ribbon installed.
Press the MODE button. The SEL light will go out. Menu light will come on.
Press the GROUP button until the printer prints something like:
Serial Interface Parity None
To change the Parity, press SET. A new line will print as:
Serial Interface Parity Odd
Press SET until the Item is the one you want.
Then Press the ITEM button. It will then print:
Serial Interface Serial Data 7 or 8 bits 8
Again if you want to change it, press SET. Otherwise go to the next Item.
Continue using the ITEM button to choose the item you want to review or change and the SET button to change the selection.
When you have made all the changes verify by going through all of the items with the ITEM button. When you are satisfied, Press the MODE button to save all of the changes. (The Menu light will go out.)
If you have any trouble Comment back.
Thanks for using Fixya.

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!
