Re: oki c5150 wont print black

First, clean the LED heads with a lint free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (the LED heads are the attachments on the underside of the lid when you open your printer; four of them for each color). Try printing something after doing that. If it's still an issue just with black, try switching the black and magenta drums/toner (keeping them locked together). The drum w/ toner cartridge simply pulls straight up and out, no switches or locks to flip. Then print a page of text; which will output from the printer in magenta. If that looks okay, then it may be an issue with your black drum and needs to be replaced.

Why can't I use a toner and drum set from an OKI c5250 in an OKI c5200

While the drum units may appear the same, chances are Okidata puts a different chip on it that makes in incompatible. The C5200 will use drums from a C5150. The C5250 appears to use different supplies.

The oki c5150,keeps burning my transfer paper.

Are you sure the media you are using is certified for Laser Printers? Ink jet papers will not tolerate the heat generated by a laser printer. You can also check the paper type settings as most printers will print cooler and slower/faster depending on how you have the media type settings set.

My oki C5150 is making a clicking noise in the front like the sound of a playing card in a tire spoke when riding a bike. ( i used to do this when I was a kid )

I had this problem with my C5100. In addition to the noise, it would not print. It turned out that it was the black drum and I replaced it. The noise went away and I could print. I have since found out that there is an internal counter that disables the drum after it gets to a preset number of copies. I searched for and found instructions on how to reset the drum counter in advance of it "self-destructing". It may be too late to do this after it starts clicking, but it can be used in the future.

Printer COki5150n....

I had the same problem. I came across the 160 error after I moved drums around. My issue started with error code 161. which appears to be the Magenta drum. Moving it to other color locations gave me errors 160, 162, 163. 160, I assume, is the cyan cartridge, then 161 is the magenta, 162 is the yellow, and 163 is the black. In my case, the magenta was very dirty. I pulled it out, used an eraser from a #2 pencil to clean the contacts. Used the shopvac to clean toner power out of printer. Turned it back on and it worked.

C5150: All color prints are extremely streaky and

This happened to me. It was caused by a bad "oki compatable" color cartridge. One time it ruined my drum. It was always the yellow color. Decide which cartridge is printing streaky. Remove it, bang it on the inside of a large plastic garbage can. Clean it. Reinstall it . If it still prints streaky throw it befor you ruin the drum. Replace it.
