    I have the same problem.
    Oki ask me to register this problem.

    C3200 status monitor says "printer connection error" but it prints a test page and full printer pages from the PC OK. Re-installing the software makes no difference. Looks like the printer is not talking to the driver software.

    All cables renewed and checked, so it's something in the control software, driver software or printer firmware.

SOURCE: Brother HL-5240 drum light flashing

Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J

SOURCE: how to switch from "offline" status to "online" status

Hi,

I had the same problem with a Brother MFC-6490CW AIO printer. Here is how I resolved it:

Open the printers folder.
Right-click on the Brother printer and display the Properties page
Select the Ports tab.

In my system (Vista Premium), the selected port was a WSD port (whatever that means). Further down the list, there was a TCP/IP port that was obviously created by the Brother installation software. I selected the Brother-created TCP/IP port (which deselected the WSD port), applied the changes, and suddenly my printer was online. No idea what the difference between these two ports is, but I'll stick with the TCP/IP port until further notice.

SOURCE: printer status offline needs to be online

Do you mean it says "offline" under the printer icon in your PC's printer dialog box?
Right click it , then select "use printer online".

Please let me know

SOURCE: OKI c5600 drum reset

It usually resets automatically when you replace the drum/toner units. Are you trying to get it to reset before it's supposed to? I don't know of any way you can do that.

There is a yellow light flashing which i think is stopping my printer from working.it is the symbol furtherst to the right out of the 4 symbols any ideas


The rightmost LED is the Error light. How fast is it flashing?

If the light is flashing 1 long flash every 4 seconds (no other lights flashing), then either the image drum needs to be changed or the toner is low.

If the flash is one blink a second, then you have a paper problem or a cover open.

If you installed the OKI software with the driver, you can use the Printer Status monitor to identify the problem and order the consumables if you have a slow blink error. (Open the printer control panel (Start >Programs > Status monitor) and Maximize the window to see the Printer status.

You can find the manual for the OKI B4100 here: http://my.okidata.com/PP-B4100.nsf?opendatabase . View all manuals on the right. If that link doesn't work, see the support site: http://my.okidata.com/Home.nsf/Welcome?OpenFrameSet and select the B4100 in the Color/Mono Page Printer drop down menu.

I hope this helps.

OKI B4400 toner - is the chip reusable? I get toner not installed


The chip is not reusable and needs to be replaced every time. You should be able to find a chip on the internet somewhere. I own a Cartridge World printer cartridge refilling store and I do not recommend refilling your own toner cartridges or buying super cheap ones off the internet. The toner is generally such a low grade that it degrades your drum cartridge causing you to replace a $219 drum unit before you should have to.

I need to know OKIB4400 LASER PRINTER; TRIANGLE W/ EXCLAMMATION


This is an "Attention" indicator. Has a lot of meanings when blinking and all of them described in the user's guide. There is also Status Monitor Software that can be installed after the printer driver and which displays printer status on the PC's screen. Much more convenient way to get information from the printer than deciphering indication of the lamp in question.

Poor copies with OKI B4400


Possibly a fuser issue. Check by sending a 1 pg document to printer and opening cover when paper picked from tray but before it enters fuser. if image good then problem caused by fuser and you will need to replace. If image bad then possible defect with drum.
