B8300 toner error

I have just installed a new toner in my Oki B8300. Since installation, I am getting 'Change toner Error'. I have used the printers IP address to check the printer status and it states the toner is empty. Is this a toner sensor error. Is it fixable?

    I have purchased a new toner which is working fine.

    The toner I was putting in before (when the machine was off) has been in put before, only briefly, by an OKI engineer.

    I have made a note of this. We are putting another of these on our network shortly so I will put in the toner which wouldn't work before and see if it works. If it fails I will try this fix however this fix states that the problem was due to changing the cartrdige whilst machine was on however, it wasn't on.

    Thanks.

From Oki's site: Symptom: The toner counter did not clear after installing a new toner cartridge. Cause: The printer was not powered off when the new toner cartridge was installed, Therefore the counter did not cleared. Resolution: 1. Enter the PCU Diagnostic Mode, By turning off the printer and holding down the MENU and OK buttons on power up. (Release the buttons once you're in the PCU DIAG MODE) 2. Press the MENU button 14 times until the operator panel reads " Counter Display " 3. Press the MENU button and the BACK/C button at the same time, This will put the printer into the Feed Counter Clear Mode (Release the buttons once you're in the Feed Counter Clear Mode) 4. Press the up arrow 5 times until the operator reads " Toner Counter Clear " 5. Press the OK button, The operator panel will now display " Toner no " 6. Press the up arrow once and the operator panel will display " Toner yes". Now press the OK button and the green data light will flash to indicate that the clear process is complete 7. To exit the PCU Diagnostic Mode, By turn the printer off and then back on this will allow you to exit the PCU Diagnostic Mode Hope that helps. If it does not please let me know Ed

Toner sensor error


Hi


This error comes up when the printer detects that the toner of particular color is missing. This indicated that the indicated color toner is missing from the printer(eg-- C = Cyan, Y = Yellow, M = Magenta, K = Black).

C5150 may face a toner sensor error after installing used sets of toner cartridges and sometimes even after installing new toner cartridges as well. This error can be bypassed. This can be disabled by following these steps---

1. Turn machine on while pushing and holding the (+/-), menu buttons at same time.
2. Menu window will show OKI USER.
3. Scroll to Engine Dialog Mode is indicated Push Enter button.
4. Diagnostic Mode xx xx xx S Mode is indicated.
5. ( = 2 ) . Press (- or +) button until “ENGINE - PARAMETER SET =2” is displayed.
6. Push Enter button.
7. TONER SENSOR - ENABLE is displayed.
8. Push Enter button.
9. Press (- / +) TONER SENSOR = DISABLE is displayed.
10. Press ON LINE CANCEL buttons at same time.
11. (*) is displayed.
12. Restart the Printer.

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.

OKI 9800 with "342" error code


problem might be with toner recycle coil which runs around the back of the belt unit. as the cyan unit is the furthest down the line if any blockages occur it can back up and lift the drum unit up. check the square opening of the recycle unit on the cyan end. Make sure you change waste toner unit when prompted or you might break a gear (big job) Karl Oki engineer
