SOURCE: Oki c5100n printing colors offset

posted by Halfwalkeer on Nov 13, 2007 Report abuse

Just replaced the color toner cartridges in the c5100N, two OKI (cyan and yellow) and one non-OKI (magenta). Now it appears that registration is completely off.

When printing an image, there is a band of yellow at the top about 6mm high, and a band of purple (not cyan) at the bottom about 6mm high. It seems that the yellow printing LED array is printing offset. I've verified this with a typical test page that shows yellow blipped up by several mm.

What the hell happened ? How can I fix it ?

Thanks -

Dean.
Comment by Halfwalkeer, posted on Jan 02, 2008 Drums are all at 34%. Please don't tell me that the drums only have a 50% lifetime on them, because that would just suck royally. When you say the problem is most likely drums, in what way ? What could have gone wrong ?

I was able to more or less fix the problem ... It took several iterations of ColorMenu->Adjust Registration followed by Maintenence Menu->Menu Reset, but it was finally able to pull the registration back into line.

I got worried at one point - after it was "fixed" the printer was powered off. Upon powerup again, registration was off by several centimeters ! Another round of the above finally "fixed" it again, but I haven't powered it down again.

It was a cheap printer. Maybe this is why ...

What is the stats % of drums if low under 50% change them, soon as you add non Gen you throw a spanner in any attempt to fault find, fix is possible toner more than likely drum/drums, do a print of each colour and change drums as indicated by failure in its colour to print, check transport belt is OK and led heads are clean
Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 02, 2008 I was thinking about the band of yellow being caused by cleaning blade wearing on drum, drums are garenteed by oki if over 50 %, under that one is on their own ie purchase new if having problems with them

If you can fix problem doing colour calibration then faulty drum is not likely the issue.

Cant stress how many problems are caused by non gen consumables in machines, highly dont recommend their use.

SOURCE: Oki C5150 printer menu is part english part spanish


How To:
Uninstall a Spanish or Portuguese driver and install the English version when Windows XP installs the incorrect language, where either a couple of the tabs are in the wrong language, or everything is incorrect.


Action:

IMPORTANT NOTE: THE PRINTER MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING THIS PROCEDURE OTHERWISE WINDOWS WILL AUTOMATICALLY INSTALL THE SPANISH OR PORTUGUESE DRIVER AGAIN. DO NOT USE PLUG 'N PLAY FOR DRIVER INSTALLATION.

1. Delete the Driver Icon from the Printers and Faxes Window.

IMPORTANT STEP:
2. Reboot the PC

3. Click on File --> Print Server Properties
0.2c6?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif

5. Click on the Drivers Tab.

6. Highlight the driver being deleted (C5200n shown as a reference below), and click on Remove.
0.347e?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif

IMPORTANT STEP:
7. Reboot the PC

8. Go back into the Server Properties Drivers Tab (as shown above), and click on the Add... button.

9. On the first screen click on Next.

10. On the Printer Driver Selection Screen, click on Have Disk.
4.7ce?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif


11. Browse to the location of the English driver that is to be installed and click on OK (Note, the C5200n printer is being used as a reference and the driver being installed is from the CD).
7.3852?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif


12. On the next screen the printer being installed should be highlighted, and click on Next.
9.628?openelement&fieldelemformat=gif


13. The next window Will show the version of the driver being installed, DO NOT click on any of the unchecked boxes and just click on Next.

14. Click Finish on the last window.

15. Finally, turn on the printer. Windows XP will automatically find the printer and install the English version of the driver.

SOURCE: oki c5150 wont print black

First, clean the LED heads with a lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (the LED heads are the attachments on the underside of the lid when you open your printer; four of them for each color). Try printing something after doing that. If it's still an issue just with black, try switching the black and magenta drums/toner (keeping them locked together). The drum w/ toner cartridge simply pulls straight up and out, no switches or locks to flip. Then print a page of text; which will output from the printer in magenta. If that looks okay, then it may be an issue with your black drum and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: Oki C3100 - v poor print quality

Hi Errol

The way to identifiy your problem is to send a full colour print to your printer and open the top just as the paper starts to come out . if you then remove your toner / drums for all the colours you can see the transfer belt if the quality of the image that you can see on the transfer belt is good and clear your problem is with the transfer form the tranferbelt to the paper and not any toner /drum issue and the most likley cause is the transfer belt itself "but before you relpace it remove it and clean around the electrical contact points and generally make sure the internals of the printer is free of loose toner .

How to reset drums on oki c5950


Amber's solution worked on an oki c5150 as well as on her 5500.
At first, I got into other menus and did not see what she'd described. I cancelled out, then re-ran her procedure following its steps EXACTLY... At the very end, I may have seen one additional message - "EXECUTE" - which I "entered" to launch the process. Printer now works while I find instructions on how to replace "just the drum".

The OEM drum assembly is very easy to change but costs about $125. I found (on Universal Ink & Toner) a drum-only replacement for $30, but there was no instruction sheet with it. This solution has allowed me to keep working while I figure out how to install the new drum. Print quality was excellent right up until the manufacturer's internal counter shut printing down. Quality remains excellent after applying the above solution.

THANK YOU AMBER
Dave

The oki c5150,keeps burning my transfer paper.


Are you sure the media you are using is certified for Laser Printers? Ink jet papers will not tolerate the heat generated by a laser printer. You can also check the paper type settings as most printers will print cooler and slower/faster depending on how you have the media type settings set.

C5150: All color prints are extremely streaky and


This happened to me. It was caused by a bad "oki compatable" color cartridge. One time it ruined my drum. It was always the yellow color. Decide which cartridge is printing streaky. Remove it, bang it on the inside of a large plastic garbage can. Clean it. Reinstall it . If it still prints streaky throw it befor you ruin the drum. Replace it.

Incorect line of colour from one edge to the other


I am presuming the rest of the page prints the correct colour and this is an area in the direction of feed that is missing yellow. Try swapping the yellow and magenta drum positions and then the green text should come out a very dark blue colour. if it does then the fault is with the YELLOW drum, if there is still a noticeable Cyan stripe still then the fault will be with the LED head or engine control board.

then closed. This process accurately aligns
the cyan, magenta and yellow images to the
black image.
