Cartridge cross contamination is the problem and expensive to have somebody tear unit down to clean up. If geordie10 is correct, and I think he is, you might look to see if you can replace unit with a used one from ebay or any other source. Your repair bill will not be good if done by a shop.

Possibly the cartridges have been put in the wrong place, you need to clean the machine out, as the wrong toners will be on the wrong drums, you may need to replace the drums and get a new transfer belt.

Why can't I use a toner and drum set from an OKI c5250 in an OKI c5200

While the drum units may appear the same, chances are Okidata puts a different chip on it that makes in incompatible. The C5200 will use drums from a C5150. The C5250 appears to use different supplies.

How do i clean the print heads on a oki c5200

With the top cover open, gently wipe the LED head(s) with the lens cleaner pad supplied with replacement toner cartridges. A soft, lint-free cloth with some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)** can also be used.As the last step before closing the cover when replacing a toner cartridge or an image drum.
If you are experience poor print quality, including
- longitudinal white stripes or fading
- blurred letter edges
CAUTION! Do not use methyl alcohol or other solvents on the LED heads: this will damage the lens surface.

My oki data C5200 in printing a faded picture along the right side of the page only. I have cleaned the print heads and checked the levels in the cartridges. Everything seems to be fine. Can you help?

Take the toner-cartridge out, and gently tilt it left-and-right
to redistribute the remaining toner in the cartridge.
Reinstall it.

Assuming that you are using the same paper and have not changed any of the consumables you should do the following:

1. Clean LED head with lens cleaner or soft tissue.
  1. Remove the toner cartridge and give it a few shakes then reinstall it.
  2. The Toner Could be low so Change toner cartridge.
4. Make sure that the paper is not damp as this will cause fading and poor quality printing and images.
  1. The image drum may have been light contaminated so remove it from the printer and store it in a totally dark place for several hours then reinstall it.
  2. If the image drum is dirty then wipe it very gently with soft tissues, being careful not to scratch it.
  3. Open the top cover and check to be sure that each toner cartridge is fully seated and that each toner cartridge lock lever is pushed all the way back.
  4. Press the top cover release latch and open, then close, the cover.
  5. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA TYPE and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  6. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA WEIGHT and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  7. Possibly set the value of media weight in the menu to the next heaviest one.
  8. Check PRINT MENURESOLUTION setting and set to 600 x 1200DPI
  9. Check PRINT MENUTONER SAVE MODE and make sure this is OFF
  10. Check PRINT MENU – MONO PRINT SPEED and make sure this is set to MIXED SPEED

Just a thought for others... is this an image drum problem?
Also, if you haven't done this yet - try gently shaking the toner cartridges to redistribute the toner. Just make sure you do it gently and over a newspaper or rugs in case some toner spills. One last idea - turn off the printer and turn back on after a few minutes?
