I have changed the toners, and the yellow one was causing problems, at that time all was well, The yellow was replaced immediately and after replacing this the printer now makes a terrible grinding noise. I have had this printer a year at the end of December 09
I have had a similar problem. . Black drum needed changing. There was also a grinding noise developing. I have taken each drum and toner module out of the printer and booted it up with one of the 4 missing. It was the Cyan drum that was making the noise. . Question is what can I do? I am not a printer expert. .
I will contact the local printing shop that I use for more info and will come back to you. I suspect that I will need a new drum . . .

How to reset your OKI C3300 C3400 C3600 laser printers drum unit ... drum message you can install the chip on your drum unit and continue printing. ... Replacing the Transfer Belt on an OkiC3000 Series Printer - Duration: ...
My OKI C3300 was the same and an engineer found the Cyan drum was bouncing on its gears being very stiff to turn. We changed the drum but it was still the same. Changing the cartridge cured the problem, that was jamming the drum.
On the top left hand side of the cartridge, usually where the letter representing the colour of the toner (in your case M for Magenta) appears, there is a small removable section, about 15mm by 20 mm in size. Prise this open with your finger nail or small screwdriver. Remove the old chip and insert the new one in here.
Okay, I had the same problem with my C3300. I phoned the people i purchased from and this is what fixed it for me:
looking directly at the printer:
-remove drum in question (the drum is what houses the toner cartridge) in my printer it is black.
-look on the right side of the drum & there is a little (approx 5mm
x 5mm) hole that has a little panel that opens- push this up to open it.
-replace drum close the top and try printing.
I had to do this 2 times before it worked, but it worked.
1) clean LED heads with Alcohol swab. 2) Check fuser rollers for dirt, smudges. Clean with swab. 3) Remove all toners/drums and check for spilled toner. Vacuum or wipe clean. 4) Check tansfer belt for marks, stray toner, creases. 4) Re-seat toner and drum cartridges.
Check the little switch/door on the right hand side of the drums. This has worked successfully for me.
After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.
The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.
Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.
When installing the C3300 printer, or when replacing the toner
cartridge, be sure to fully insert the toner cartridge into the image
drum, and make sure the blue lever is pushed ALL THE WAY toward the
back of the printer (fully locked position). If it is not fully closed
(locked), a "toner sensor" or "toner empty" message may result.
