Question about OKI C5800Ldn Led Printer
Fatal error code
231:fatal error 03 (as noted on display)
what does this mean and can it be cleared without service call. budget super tight and trying to pay someone to fix it if remote assistance and information can be gathered.
I have the Oki 5650 which had been great for about 18 months. Then found that the C cartridge was showing error as 'not installed'. After much fiddling about with it and checking on the internet I can now rectify this by either pushing down on the top of the printer while it boots up, or removing the small chip on the left top of the toner (make sure you have 'earthed' yourself to prevent any static damaging the chip when you handle it!) and taping securly onto the top of the cartridge above the chips proper slot. This now has been working OK for 6 months. Strange how this only affects the C cartridge (which has also been replaced and had the same problem). I suspect that the printers RFID chip reader for the C cartridge is having problems reading the chip and moving the chip closer to the reader by either taping to the cartridge top of puching on the top cover while printer boots up resolves the problem (for now anyway!) This can also trigger the 'service call 231 fatal error 03' message which also disappears if you follow the above procedure.
Hope this helps you.

Switch off printer. Unplug power source from printer. Re-plug same and power up again. Should work Have same problem with OKI 5900

Same problem with OKI C5950. Shut down power and plug on power again is my solution. Problem appears first with using refill toner not the original one.

Happens with refilled cartridges. You MUST insert the new chip that comes with the refill. If you get the error message after doing so remove the new chip, rotate it 180 degrees and reinsert it into the cartridge. Solved the problem for me!
