Question about OKI C5100n Laser Printer

OKI C5100 only printing cyan

I have no idea why my Oki C5100 is currently only printing blue. All the toners and drums are Oki brand and have plenty of life left in them but it isn't pulling any color except for blue and some black. Yellow toner was just put in, then it decided it didn't want to print all the colors anymore. I've cleaned the LED's but don't know what else to do to get this to work. Help!!!

    Have a similar problem with C5150. Yellow doesn't seem to want to print properly. Demo page doesn't print the red, it looks hot pink and the green has a touch of cyan at the end. Replaced drums as well as toners.

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.
