SOURCE: OKI 9800 with "342" error code

problem might be with toner recycle coil which runs around the back of the belt unit. as the cyan unit is the furthest down the line if any blockages occur it can back up and lift the drum unit up. check the square opening of the recycle unit on the cyan end. Make sure you change waste toner unit when prompted or you might break a gear (big job) Karl Oki engineer

SOURCE: LSU ERROR shows in display panel

The LSU is the Laser Scanning Unit or "printhead". There is a mirror in there that spins really fast, if the mirror spins too slowly (bad motor, low voltage) it gives an error. Sounds like you would need a replacement LSU. Have the printer serviced.

SOURCE: fatal error 917 on an Oki C9600 printer

A fatal error 917 means there is a problem regarding the belt **** sensor.

Usually it means the printer can't see the transfer belt rotating.

First thing to try is to remove and re install the transfer belt, if that does not work you should replace the transfer belt.

OKI C9600 paper jam problems: Paper jams continually, either on first attempt to printing or if it prints a page the 2nd page inevitably jams. Printer has only done 1500 pages since new ,and i have removed...

Wow! That's quite the printer you have there. The C9600 does have a feed roller in the front; and it's not uncommon for paper to still get stuck. Does your paper "fan" when it goes through; or simply, go through and jam? It's possible a paper feed sensor is bad too. Another thing you might want to check is the paper tray; and that the paper is set to the proper size.

Also be aware, the OKI 9600 had a recall a year or so ago for some potential "shock issues" I would advise you to check with OKI directly to determine if this printer is part of that issue too.

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.
