Oki Data C5150 Alignment

My OKI is printing really off and I think it is the alignment. When I print a document there is like a shadow effect going on that is not on the document to be printed. The only documents this does not happen on are black and white word/excel docs, but if I toss a colored word in that document it doesn't print straight (like it will be higher or lower than the black text) but in that case there is no shadow, just not straight lines.

I was told aligning the printer might fix this problem but I have no clue how to go about that. Any help?

(ps I am not sure if this is an led or what....I am completely clueless on most of this stuff)

One of the drum cartridges is stuck. Test by removing them one at a time with the printer off, then turning on.

This sounds like a problem in the computer program that is sending the prints to the printers....especially since it is happening in several of them.

How To:
Uninstall a Spanish or Portuguese driver and install the English version when Windows XP installs the incorrect language, where either a couple of the tabs are in the wrong language, or everything is incorrect.


Action:

IMPORTANT NOTE: THE PRINTER MUST BE TURNED OFF DURING THIS PROCEDURE OTHERWISE WINDOWS WILL AUTOMATICALLY INSTALL THE SPANISH OR PORTUGUESE DRIVER AGAIN. DO NOT USE PLUG 'N PLAY FOR DRIVER INSTALLATION.

1. Delete the Driver Icon from the Printers and Faxes Window.

IMPORTANT STEP:
2. Reboot the PC

3. Click on File --> Print Server Properties

5. Click on the Drivers Tab.

6. Highlight the driver being deleted (C5200n shown as a reference below), and click on Remove.

IMPORTANT STEP:
7. Reboot the PC

8. Go back into the Server Properties Drivers Tab (as shown above), and click on the Add... button.

9. On the first screen click on Next.

10. On the Printer Driver Selection Screen, click on Have Disk.

11. Browse to the location of the English driver that is to be installed and click on OK (Note, the C5200n printer is being used as a reference and the driver being installed is from the CD).

12. On the next screen the printer being installed should be highlighted, and click on Next.

13. The next window Will show the version of the driver being installed, DO NOT click on any of the unchecked boxes and just click on Next.

14. Click Finish on the last window.

15. Finally, turn on the printer. Windows XP will automatically find the printer and install the English version of the driver.

Use oki drums and toners, clean led heads

SOURCE: oki c5150 wont print black

First, clean the LED heads with a lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (the LED heads are the attachments on the underside of the lid when you open your printer; four of them for each color). Try printing something after doing that. If it's still an issue just with black, try switching the black and magenta drums/toner (keeping them locked together). The drum w/ toner cartridge simply pulls straight up and out, no switches or locks to flip. Then print a page of text; which will output from the printer in magenta. If that looks okay, then it may be an issue with your black drum and needs to be replaced.

C5150: All color prints are extremely streaky and


This happened to me. It was caused by a bad "oki compatable" color cartridge. One time it ruined my drum. It was always the yellow color. Decide which cartridge is printing streaky. Remove it, bang it on the inside of a large plastic garbage can. Clean it. Reinstall it . If it still prints streaky throw it befor you ruin the drum. Replace it.

My semi-educated guess would be that your transfer belt unit is getting close to the end of it's time - This is Part No. 351002.

PRINTS NOT ON DEMAND


The types of printers that you have actually should be assigned to a free port, you cant setup 2 printers on the same port. check at the back of the printer the physical attachment of two printers the OKI and the Epson, if Oki is set to lpt1 then assign port from printer properties for oki to lpt1, and lpt2 on epson. 1 printer- 1 port, so by then check if the box for enable bidirectional support is check, remove the check mark from the box by clicking on it then hit apply then try printing a test page then try printing from application.
