    That's the first thing I tried.

    My problem ONLY happens on multiple runs of over 20 pages.

    Thanks for your help

    Microline 320 Turbo, will start printing then alarm signals and printing stops. It may be on the first page of twenty or the 19th it does not have a particular pattern of disfunction.

Check/clean the carriage sensor. This part is under the head/ribbon holder assembly. You should also check the tensioner to the black guide/railings when the carriage assembly runs. This is the one with the gear.

    You might also want to check your head. This error is an indication that the head is heating up too much. The intelligent head technology features will alarm/stop the printer when it detects abnormalities with the head. You can also try spraying the head with contact cleaner and let it dry for quite a while before putting it back again.

Is this a networked printer? You may need to reload the print driver into your computers. Most printers are generic enough that computers will recognize them and automatically install the drivers. Sometimes you need to go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers you need.

There is now ink in the machine. You just have to replace the print ribbon. This is the small black box that is mounted to the printhead.

Oki microline 320 turbo

Your Oki model does not need drivers, for they are already contained since Windows 98 and up. However, if it still doesn't work, check that the printer emulation is set to IBM and then install a new printer using the IBM Proprinter II/III driver, also contained in Windows.

Be blessed.

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.

Oki Microline 320 Turbo page alignment

This sounds like a problem in the computer program that is sending the prints to the printers....especially since it is happening in several of them.

Oki ML 320 Turbo/D IBM - JetDirect 170x Print Server prolems

Check the receive buffer on the Oki. I usually set it to the highest (88k or 128k). You might also check the print head gap if you are printing multi part invoices. If the print head is too close it may overheat and stop printing. If you have a different printer, swap it out and see if it prints correctly. It may be a problem with the JetDirect 170x, not the printer.
