Oki B4200 Error lights

We have a number of b4200 printers in our office and have had 2 of them in the last few days stop responding. The error cycle is this: Printer turns on (all lights flash on), Its does the engine test and turnes the gears, At the end of the engine test the lights flash again and then the Error and feed lights flash for about 5 seconds and then it resets and starts over again. This will continue until you give up. The status monitor just says "Communication problem" all the time, the computer is plugged in using the USB connection. Ideas?

SOURCE: oki c5400 communication error

This means that the interface type settings are incorrect in the Printer Menu and might be due to trying to use half duplex comms instead of full duplex, you are trying to use TCP/IP when the printer has this option turned off. It could even be as simple as something wrong with the interface cable being used or a mismatch in USB1.1 to V2.

OKI C330dn Call Service fatal Error:980

That particular error indicates a fuser failure. Try turning off the printer and re-seating the fuser. If this does not clear the message then the fuser needs to be replaced. With such a low number of prints warranty should cover it.

Amber light on oki c3300 continues to flash and printer will not print

Here's what the owner's manual has to say:

Error status (Amber, blinking): you cannot continue to use the
printer. Intervention is required to recover from the error. Fatal
errors are irrecoverable and require a service call.

Blinking 1 (2S cycle)
An error has occurred but
printing can continue if you
press the ON LINE or CANCEL

Blinking 2 (500mS cycle)
An error has occurred. You
need to replace consumables
or remove jammed paper, for
example. The printer then
recovers from the error and
printing becomes possible

Blinking 3 (120mS cycle)
A serious error has occurred.
rebooting or a service call is

The Status Monitor in Windows provides a readable description
of the printer status corresponding to the indications of the
LEDs. In Mac, the printer driver provides status information
once you have sent a document to print. In Windows, if you
have the Status Monitor Preferences set to Pop up on alerts,
this readable message will be presented on screen whenever
an abnormal condition occurs.

There's no further information. Sorry.

Oki Data c5500

If you buy a printer with a 3 year warranty then your printer is covered for 3 years. if, under the warranty, the manufacturer decides to give you a replacement rather than fixing it then your warranty continues for the 3 years from the date of purchase. I know for a fact that this is how Oki operate in the UK. Call their service department in Slough again and I am sure they will sort your printer under warranty. All you need to have ready is the serial number and they can check your warranty entitlement. If the warranty was not provided by Oki then I would be off to trading standards.

Oki C5200n 002: Fatal Error

I too am having this problem, I suspect it started after installing our new FIOS router, so it could be network related. It's possible the number could be referencing an internal memory number.
