My oki data C5200 in printing a faded picture along the right side of the page only. I have cleaned the print heads and checked the levels in the cartridges. Everything seems to be fine. Can you help?

Take the toner-cartridge out, and gently tilt it left-and-right
to redistribute the remaining toner in the cartridge.
Reinstall it.

The copies look faded out as if a new toner is needed, but I just changed the image drum and the toner cartridge

It could be that the print density setting is set too low. Adjust to higher density printing.

If the ink of the toner is not well distributed, remove the cartridge toner from the printer. Shaking it to redistribute toner more evenly will help..

Reset the printer
On the printer press the menu button until you reach MAINT.
Then press the item + button until you reach DRUM CT RESET. Then press select.

That will fix it.
Thank you for using Fixya

Black text or black print is faded in a 2" vide area

Although the drum life is at 65% it could still have a problem. It could be that the end of the drum is starved of toner or there is lumpy toner in the drum. Take out the black drum and give it a good shake then a gentle one to level the toner out and refit. Had the same with a canon unit 2 weeks ago. If still no good then a new drum is required. I bet you are using recycled drums!!

OKI c5100 Printing GREY instead of BLACK.

Not able to print a status page. Tried holding down menu 5 sec and no output. I searched the menu and am not able to find how to print status page. I did print out a demo page and the black is great but when i print out text (like the entire menu map) the black is grey. Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

Here's the 'secret' sevice manual:
I would also (very carefully) check for torn paper around the rollers of the imaging drum that might be rubbing the area.
