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.

Oki C5450 error message


The figure after the K drum Life tells you how much life there is left on the BLACK (K) drum. C indicates Cyan, M indicates Magenta and Y indicates Yellow.

Go to the USAGE MENU and look at the K DRUM LIFE setting. This will be a 2 digit percentage value. As you have just seen the message appear this will mean that the drum life remaining is ....whatever the 2 digit value displays.

The life expectancy of a drum is approximately 15,000 pages.

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.
