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!!!

Re: 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.

Drum units are different than toner. Drums are expensive but need to be replaced between 30,000-40,000 impresions

OKI Toner

Have very good experience with Uninet Imaging toner for this model. So replace the drum units and try this one. It also have wax particles in its structure. But wax lubricates fuser, not drums...

OKI 5600 - Can you do a 'clean'?

Here's the 'secret' sevice manual:
I would also (very carefully) check for torn paper around the rollers of the imaging drum that might be rubbing the area.
