    I can only view the usage settings - there's no way to reset the counters through the software

  • jenrice35 May 11, 2010

    Can you access the menus through the Oki software installed on your computer? The manual http://www.okic3100.co.uk/library/docume... indicates that you can access the menu by selecting "START" - "ALL PROGRAMS" Unfortunately I have the C5150 that has the LCD menu and Networking which both allow you to reset.

Msg says Drum Unit Life Order K Toner but my K Toner is at 90%.


The drum may have an electronic counter installed and after so many pages being printed, even though it is still good, it will determine that it is time to replace. You may be able to replace the electronic counter. If not, you will need to replace the drum.

How do I reset the counters for drum life?


You must order a fuse from a toner supply company.
Ask for instructions but it is not a easy task. I pay someone to do mine.

How to reset black drum counter OKI C3300 ?


Buy a pack of 10 x .062A (1/16A) pico fuse RS part No 738-3062. Switch off printer. Remove the drum and toner together from the drum slot to be reset. Carefully crimp the legs of the fuse around the contact wires on the right side of the drum slot. Make sure fuse legs are making a good connection to the wires and aren't touching the frame. switch on printer and allow it to detect the absence of the drum. Switch off printer and carefully remove the now blown fuse. Re-install the toner and drum assemnbly. Drum life is now reset. see pic:

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.

I would like to reset the drum counter of my OKI 8800


You need to insert a 1/16A fuse into the drum and let printer blow it thus resetting the counter. Don't use fuses with the higher rate - they can easily blow your printer instead! Much more expencive that putchasing a new drum. By the way - 20k at continuous printing, meaning print jobs are as big as 100-200 pages each. The less pages per job the sooned drum life ends up.,

Message on printer


Your printer has counter on it that keeps track of the number pages that have been printed with it. It is warning you that the drum unit is coming close to the end of it's rated life. Order a black drum unit and have it on hand. Some time in the near future the printer will stop operating until you install the new drum which will come with instructions on how to install it. If you order it now, you will avert a "Crisis" later. Ed
