OKI C3400 COLOUR PRINTER

Blank only printout is perfect, problem is when I do colour printing is leaves heaps of colour smudges on the printout. Is this problem related to the Transfer Kit or is it board related.

Please advice,
Trevor.

    This would most likely be related to a transefer cleaning, or drum cleaning blade.

    If the black has no problem,

    isolate the problem.....

    Print out a page with one specific color. there are only 4 colors, I am sure there is a way to print a band test page.. not sure how. But with paint or similarprogram, make a page with a line of each color.. The CMYK system uses a blend of colors to make various color, so make this as absolute as possible..

    Cyan = Blue

    Magneta = Red

    Yellow

    K- Black

    Then take each page and see which is producing the most smudge.. this will help to isolate the problem..

    Good Luck

I have had the colour duplicate because the client had used the incorrect toner, if you remove all four drums and toners there are two blue screws to undo , the transfer unit comes up and out. You will have to remove the white waste toner bottle from the belt unit. Remove the two screws holding the blade onto the unit clean the build up from under the blade and repowder the blade with standard setting powder. Put it all back together and test.. Fixed my problem when I was in the field once.

I bought a new Oki C610 a couple of months ago to start up a custom art business. From the beginning, the DCT 4.5 paper has stuck to the fuser roller. With the first fuser cartridge, it just dog-earred on...


Hi my reply was too long heres the second half..and ill retype the first as a comment

Try printing lighter prints, heavy toner saturation causes paper to stick to fusers and try to keep leading edge of print blank with no big blobs of colour for the same reason, ensure page sizes are set correctly in driver and machine tray settings and dont print outside margins , if you are about to print outside margins your printer driver should warn you, dont click ok if it does

Here is your user manual for your oki. and a link to oki print drivers to suit 610

Here is a link to Magic touch Australia that i thought has some good info re transfer paper use

Ensure your printer works ok with plain paper so we know it aint a printer fault but I'd say it due to how we are feeding the paper and how we have the paper type set and not feeding out the rear as I also think we should be.

Oki does the best colour prints nice and glossy, I dont think many come close to such great colour prints in fact I only like Oki and Kyocera stuff in Colour toner laser machines. Stear clear of cheap non oki toners and supplies because they cause heaps of issues and wreck printers and give many print quality issues, I dont work for OKI directly just telling you how it is in the field ;)

Let me know if you need more help and how you go

Cheers
Steve

I have an Oki C3400 that wont print


Could very well be the sensor window. I suggest looking at the side of the drum on the right side and pushing a q tip into the opening. heres an older model thats sort of similar instructions. http://www.c3400.co.uk/index.asp?menumode=0&content=sensorerror
Also you can check the exact error code here. http://www.okic3400.co.uk/library/downloads/utilities/c3300c3400smv1115.exe

Print out is dirty, there are smudges of inks at the page center


What colour are the smudges, if they are one colour you can try changing that colour toner cartridges. Failing this then it sounds as if you may need a new drum

Oki c3400 paper jam


Run Status Monitor and make sure it is really a paper jum that prevents printer from printing. It is very likely that another reason is in place. For instance - toner empty of change drum request. All of this causes the "Attention" LED to blink: it's not only paper jam that causes it.
