Question about OKIPAGE 12i Led Printer

1 Answer

Prints blotches and marks down the left edge

I have an OKI 12i that constantly prints blotches and marks down the left edge. I run cleaning pages that come out dirty over the whole page front and back but the blotches keep coming back along the left edge. In addition, it is necessary to warm the printer up for several minutes prior to printing the first page otherwise it will jam. I have replaced the drum assembly several times and continue to have the same issues. Any suggestions on how to fix.

Hi
That sounds like classic wear and tear issues. All those rollers and gears have very close tolerances and any variation out of the rang and the paper grabing and jamming starts. And that could be cause of the toner leaking. You must have a lot of miles on that ol girl and you got your moneys worth out of her. They dont make them like that anymore and I dont think you could find the parts even though that was back when they supplied parts. I asked an engineer once "couldn't they make that one gear out of metal like the rest of them?" He replied "well sure, but there wouldn't be any money in that..." You beat the system on that one. Time to start your research on a replacement I'm afraid.

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.

after that from the setting menu ...reset to the factory settings the printer ..for the same reason ...and at last ..run a page calibration ..and see what is doing after that ..
To run the calibration you should probably print a start page ..

Oki b410d printer has a new toner cartridge however it is still printing inconsistently on the page?


Open the lid. Mounted under the lid you should see a horizontal bar which is actually the laser [LED]. Once your toner cart has emitted, enough loose toner has accumulated on the laser that it can no longer draw on the page correctly. Using something soft and barely dampened with water [use a soft cotton cloth, NO PAPER PRODUCTS, no dirty rags, etc] and wipe gently from L to R to remove the loose toner. Turn to a clean section of the cloth and do it once more. GENTLY! No pressure, do not scrub it, or you can damage the laser. Close the lid and print something. You should be back to good now.

Toner blotched on printed material When printing


If the line has a 1/8" white margin on either side, clean your glass and mirrors.

If the line is all the way across your page, consult your users manual for cleaning the sawtooth electrode (open the front door and take out your waste tank, there is a green rod on each drum cartridge you can pull and hear a zipping noise) and cleaning the laser lens (there should be a cleaning wand under your waste tank, turn pad side down and insert in the gap underneath your drum cartridge)

The printed pages have pink blotches on the right hand side of the paper and horizontal pink blotches down the page


Try cleaning the color or magenta cartridge with rubbing alcohol and look inside the printer to see if there's pooled ink anywhere that is smearing on the paper. Try replacing the print head or cartridge.

Black Lines running down the right side outside of the print area


It may be the fuser. Take it out and inspect the roller on it:

  1. Switch off the device, disconnect the mains plug and wait for 30 minutes before continuing.
  2. Ensure that the bypass tray is closed, or you will not be able to open the front cover.
  3. Open the front cover by pressing the release buttons as shown.
  4. Pull the front cover down towards you.
  5. Disconnect the green plug - squeeze the sides of the plug and pull.
  6. Push the left and right levers outward to unlock the unit.
  7. Pull the unit towards you as shown and lift it clear of the device.
  8. Check the roller for wear marks, If so replace it.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
