OKI MC 361

Changed the ink cartridges and initially got error code 133 Needs inspection. Turned the machine off manually since it wouldn't turn off any other way. Now it is showing off/on error: 811. All the lights on the control panel light but it won't do anything. Can't find any info on either error code.

SOURCE: Alarm light on, Display indicates error message: Check Ink U150 M

I added my post today with the same problem, and thought I'd share what I since learned. Apparently this "Alarm light/U150" is common with several Canon models. The U150 indicates a faulty electronic chip (on the ink cartridge). Though I tried cleaning the sensor with isopropyl alcohol, and also tried removing all the cartridges, unplugging the printer for 45 seconds, then reconnecting,etc. as I had read might help, I still had the same frustrating problem. Contacting Canon was the solution that worked for me. First I emailed, but decided I didn't want to wait for their response. A call to Canon Tech Support (1-800-385-2155) was quick and painless. They will more than likely send you a new cartridge, but you'll need to have your serial # & date of purchase handy.

HI. Try holding the reset button for 6 seconds to overide the error. This may dissable the chip so it won't report but will allow you to keep printing. Simply check the ink tanks visually.

Refilling will give the same error too, again dissable the error.

SOURCE: Oki Microline 320 turbo alarm light

If the printer worked one day and stopped working after turned off/on, you most probably have a bad paper sensor. This is basically a switch that is no longer working, therefore cleaning will no fix it. Determining which one is actually bad is difficult, so many places actually replace them all. I might be able to get you the part numbers if you really want to try it out. But be aware that this is only an educated guess, your unit might have another issue involved.

Be blessed.

Usually an error 5100 code is saying that the ink carriage has problems. Usually something currently is or recently hammed the cartridge carriage. With the machine turned off and the power cord unplugged, open the machine and inspect the inside do you see any stray pieces of paper along the paper's usually route?

There is a way to reset the machine to clear out the error. I would need to know the exact model of your Canon.

The printer does an Error code 0xc18a0001 Ink failure and the computer doesn't seem to take the printer on I plug it in and out doesn't matter it's just like if I wouldn't plug in any new...


TO clear the error and return the printer to working order you will need to do an ink purge and reset. The problem is caused by air in the ink cartridges. This can happen if you use refilled cartridges or if you let the ink run to low and try to print something. Here is a link to an article that explains what has happened and how to solve the problem.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

I am refilling the black ink of my canon printer using continuous ink container but the black color doesn't flow into the end of the hose and it didn't print at all, please help

  • Check the printer's power/alarm light. If it is flashing orange, count the number of flashes. Look up the flash code in your printer's user manual to diagnose the problem.
  • 2 Remove and reinstall the ink cartridges if the power/alarm light flashes 5, 7 or 15 times consecutively. This indicates that the issue is a cartridge error, an incorrectly installed cartridge, or an unrecognized cartridge. These errors can be fixed by reinstalling the ink cartridges. Make sure that you are using the correct ink cartridges for your Canon printer.

  • Turn on the printer and open the front cover. The ink cartridge holder should move to the replacement position.
  • 4 Verify that the colored ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the right and the black ink cartridge is inserted in the slot on the left. Swap the cartridges and reinstall them in the correct slots if necessary.
  • 5 Check to see that both ink cartridges are level with one other and parallel to the top of the ink cartridge holder. If either cartridge is wedged at an angle, gently apply pressure to the cartridge until it clicks into the correct position.
  • 6 Close the front cover of your Canon printer and wait while the printer initializes the newly installed cartridges. This can take a minute or two.

    Black ink low, error message 5200

    Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
    Hope this helps. Bud

    Oki c5500n drum reset

    To get the OKI C5500 to keep going (without opening and closing the lid constantly) in spite of toner cartridge & drum life messages:

    1) Turn off printer.
    2) Hold down "+" and "-" buttons at the same time, and keep them held down while turning printer back on... continue to hold until the word "OKIUSER" appears.
    3) Use "-" button to scroll down to "FUSE KEEP MODE".
    4) Press "Enter" button, hold for approx. 10 seconds, then release.
    5) Press "Enter" button again, followed by rapid release and repress with hold for approx. 10 seconds.
    6) Release "Enter" button, then press and let up one more time quickly.
    7) You will see "INITIALING" and then "ONLINE" messages.

    If you currently have an error message for toner cartridge life, the message will continue to be shown until after you've sent one print job, and then it will usually disappear for awhile. It will stay gone for longer if you have your printer set up so the toner sensor is turned off.

    If you currently have a error message for drum life, it will continue to appear, but you will still be able to print.

    Beware that you will have to keep a closer eye on print quality (since you are no longer relying on error message to tell you when your toner cartridges are in need of a replacement or refill, or the drum truly needs to be changed or refurbished).
    Please note that anytime you turn the printer off, you will have to go through the whole process again when you turn it back on. It doesn't take long though, and will quickly become habit whenever turning on your printer for the day!
    Good Luck.
