Re: Connection problems for oki C5100. Eek.

Your USB cable is either too long (more than 9 feet), or too thin. This makes the connection strong enough for status, but too weak for data transmission. Install a good quality cable and let me know.

Service Call 069: Error

My printer (Oki C330dn) experienced a hardware issue that placed it in a mode where it displays a 'Service Call 069: Error' on startup after the hardware problem was corrected. I used the following button combination at startup, which corrected my issue. Press and hold the BACK, DOWN ARROW, and OK buttons and power-on the unit. Continue to hold the buttons until you see RAM CHECK and some asterisks then release. This forces the unit to ignore all warnings and errors while placing it in an online mode. My printer came up to a ready state and worked normally. The next time I turned it on, it started up without any errors.

OKI C5100 printer Right side of printed page has repeat print. What do I have to do to get a clean copy without the duplicate print?

You have to determine if the drum cartridge or the fuser is the problem. Do a panic stop before the paper hits the fuser and see if it has the residual image. If it is clean then the fuser is the problem.

Please run a printer alignment exercise. Then do a print head cleaning exercise. If these does not solve the problem then try to reset you printer. Clear the printer memory. Please follow the user manual to perform the steps.

When printing on my oki c5100 text or image - it prints fine but with a smudge/ghost of the image or text also on the paper. I know I need to order new toner - could this be why?

Open you printer and pull out the fuser assembly and look if the upper roller is fine because if it`s damaged it could lead to the double image.

OKI C5100 only printing cyan

I need to know if the test page that the unit prints as "Demo Page" comes out fine. If this is the case, your problem is within your application (software) or computer connection (check all cables). If this is NOT the case, I'll need to know more about your scenario. Operating system, type of connection (USB, parallel) and what are you trying to print. I'll be waiting.
