Question about OKI C5500n Printer
I recently installed a new black toner cartridge. The other colors are fine, but the black suddenly stopped printing in the middle of the document.

Con el cartucho instalado en su posición, tiramos de él para arriba y sacamos todo el alojamiento del mismo. En la parte derecha del mismo hay un cuadradito con una ventanilla de plástico que debe estar totalmente liberada. El problema es que ésta a veces se queda medio tapada y el sensor no detecta el cartucho. Levantar ese plástico hacia arriba todo lo que se pueda ( con algo que tenga punta, un boli por ejemplo) y volver a poner todo el alojamiento en su sitio. Suele funcionar a la primera, y si no, apagar y encender de nuevo la impresora.

Your indication regarding the 100% does not necessarily indicate a damaged chip (sensor).
Many chips do not work by actually sensing the toner but by usage or other tricks.
We cannot be sure about what happened but replacing the drum and affected items
should solve the problem. Needed parts may be found at

Thanks for using FixYa. Toner sensor error is related to the agitator inside the toner cartridge, it occasionally falls out of its housing so it does not move the toner sensor which is the white plastic piece that moves up and down on the coloured handle, the toner sensors themselves see this white flag if it doesn’t move then the printer thinks the sensor is broken so toner sensor error is flagged and if the flag moves too quickly the machine thinks the toner is empty. To resolve the issue your printer is facing with please check that toner lock lever is in position and follow the following procedure---
Press the cover release and open the printer’s top cover fully. Make sure the Toner Cartridge in question is correctly positioned and the right hand clip is pushed back. While holding it by its top centre, lift the image drum, complete with its toner cartridge, up and out of the printer. On the Right hand side of the toner look for a sensor patch, make sure this is not dirty. If it is dirty clean it with a soft object such as cotton wool. Now look inside the printer opposite to where the sensor patch would sit. There is a black square with a sensor located inside and check that this is not dirty. Now replace the drum and toner, and close the printer cover. Try to print a test page and it will start printing normally.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

THIS SOLUTION IS FOR AN OKI C3400N ONLY
As I'm sure you know, that blinking amber light indicates that:
Assuming that is the case, and one or both of these signals an empty black toner, the problem may be in the new black toner cartridge. You can try this:
This has worked for me several times - most especially when I tried using non-OKI OEM 'compatible" toners - but no guarantees this will help you
