Question about OKI C3100 Led Printer

Oki C3100 - v poor print quality

I have an Oki C3100 and it is printing terribly - lines down the page, faint printing, poor and wrong colours. Occurs on colour prints and black text.
I have checked on the printer settings and all toners and drums are above 50% except yellow - 18%.
I have cleaned the led heads as well.
Any suggestions? thanks!

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I have cleaned the internals and contact points etc and even put in a new transfer belt that I had but the problem persists.

    There are definitely areas of black text where lines run through it - suggesting a problem with the black drum? However, there are coloured areas with lines through it and areas that should be green but are yellow with bits of green.

    If the black drum was running low, would that affect the print in the coloured areas - ie would a line run through it?

    I could buy a new set of drums and narrow the problem down - but it would be cheaper to buy a new printer...?

Hi Errol

The way to identifiy your problem is to send a full colour print to your printer and open the top just as the paper starts to come out . if you then remove your toner / drums for all the colours you can see the transfer belt if the quality of the image that you can see on the transfer belt is good and clear your problem is with the transfer form the tranferbelt to the paper and not any toner /drum issue and the most likley cause is the transfer belt itself "but before you relpace it remove it and clean around the electrical contact points and generally make sure the internals of the printer is free of loose toner .

Poor quality print


Try cleaning the LED heads. These are located in the lid and are facing you when you have raised the lid. A quick wipe with a dry cloth or tissue should help. If in doubt, check the user manual.

Faint horizontal dark line about 2 1/8 inches down from the top


Hi,

You can easily fix this yourself, one of the quickest ways to fix it is to print 10 doublesided blank pages and it will clean the inside of the machine for you and the line will vanish.

For further print quality problems on this machine follow these instructions to troubleshoot.

When troubleshooting image quality problems, it is important to understand the situations in which the problem occurs.

Print a copy of the color test pages to determine whether the problem is in one color or more than one color.
  1. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button on the Control Panel to select [Troubleshooting] on the Display Screen, and then press the [OK] button.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Print Quality Problems], and then press the [OK] button.
  3. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button to select [Color Test Pages], and then press the [OK] button to print the test pages. If the problem occurs with one color on the test pages, perform the solutions for this problem. If the problem occurs in more than one color on the test pages, restart your search and select a case for the image quality problem occurring through all colors.

Faint print or colour missing V V URGENT


I'm not an expert on these but I'd guess either the high voltage unit or LED laser PSU are suffering from an intermittent problem. If you're lucky it's just a loose connector - but I'll bet you've already tried re-seating every connector you can find :)
