    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.

Normally if you say 'Print this email' it prints all the pages automatically. Try going on to the Advanced printer section and where it says print pages from... to... give page numbers

Message comes on: Clearing paper path and the printer keeps printing multiple copies

Hi there.

The printer driver is corrupted that keeps printing in multiple page. I suggest, you add new printer with the same name and set it as default printer. When you print the test page and it prints it means your problem is solve. Then delete the printer icon.

I am sure it will helps you a lot.

Hi there,
Check the status of each cartride by using the ink lamp.
You have 3 lamps
(A) Alarm lamp
(B) Black ink lamp
(C) Color ink lamp
Make sure that the LED is on standby mode.
a) If the ink lamp lights.
Cause : Ink is low.
Action :You can continue printing for a while, but we recommend you have a new FINE cartridge available.

b) The Alarm Lamp lights and the ink lamp flashes .
* If "E, 1, 3 " is displayed on the LED, ink has run out.
Cause : Ink level cannot be detected.
Action : Ink may have run out.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled since the ink level cannot be correctly detected.
If you want to continue printing without this function, press Stop/Resset buttonfor atleast 5 seconds.
Canon recommends to use new genuine Canon cartridges in order to obtain optimum qualities.

* If E,1, 6" is displayed on the LED,
Cause : Ink has run out.
Action. Rreplace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress, you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for atleast 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

c) Only the ink lamp flashes
Cause : The function for detecting the remaining in level is disabled.

Hope this helps.
Please rate my response.
Have a good day.

Alarm light keeps coming on after each page is printed. I have to hit the reset button before another page will print.

press the go button 3 times and it will give you a printout that shows the error, it most likely will be to clean the drum which you do by moving that little blue lever on the drum back and forth around 20 times. If it's a paper feed error, clean the feed roller with a damp cloth.
