OKI Laser Printer C5300 printing on paper with black flecks

The copy comes out with small black flecks of toner (?) scattered on the paper.  Do I have a problem with the black toner or should I take the printer to a professional to get a cleaning?  Could I do the cleaning myself? If so what are the steps?

IF you are using after market black toner then we found your problem. Putting a real toner on now wont help cause dodgy toner is now in the drum, you need to replace Black drum and use real toner. If you are using gen OKI toner, then just replace the Black (K) drum.

Clean led head and these printers dont need a teco, they are designed for wearing parts to replaced by operator ie Transfer belt, fuser, drums and toners.

There is a paper jam...how do I unjam it


Hi dorothyhover,

Here's how you would clear paper jam from your Brother HL 1430:

1. Remove the paper cassette completely from the printer.

2.
Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

3.
Open the front cover and remove the drum unit assembly.

4. Pull any jammed paper up and out of the printer.

Do not remove the drum unit assembly with additional force at this time if you cannot remove it easily. Instead, pull the edge of the jammed paper from the paper cassette.

5. Open the rear cover and pull the paper towards the back of the printer, the fuser may get dirty with toner powder and may result in toner scatter on the next printed page or pages. Print a few copies of the test page until the toner scatter on the printed pages clears.


6. Close the rear cover and install drum unit assembly, close the front cover.


Hope it helps.


Thank you for using Fixya.

How do clean the head or drum for oki b 4350 laser printer i am geting a light copy


The Head is the Black ber on the uder side of the top cover. Use a tissue to wipe off any excess toner. You can use a small amount of alcohol on the tissue to than wipe dry. If you have a 3M toner
vacuum you can vac. up any dust or toner on the drum. DO NOT use any liquids on the drum.

Good Luck

How to do borderless printing with an oki c5300


You cannot do borderless printing with a toner/fuser based unit.
The printer needs a paper grip area and cannot print to the edge due to the fuser.

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.

Oki C5300 toner "leaking" on to surface


1 - take out all consumables
2 - use canned air to clean interior (do it outdoors)
3 - spray toner cartridges to remove stray toner (keep them connected to the drums, do not separate)
4 - make sure toner carts are properly installed and locked down
