I changed the drum unit on my c5500 printer and didn't realize that I needed to replace the toner at the same time. I just replaced that toner about a month ago and now it's saying it's empty - which I...

Before you replace a drum unit, you should (with the top toner cartridge still in place) turn the unit upside down and gently shake the toner that is in the drum unit back into the toner cartridge. When you install toner on these printers, most of the toner falls into the drum unit. The only way you can "reset" the printer is to add more toner, because there is almost no toner in that new drum.

OKI C3400 printer keeps saying

Okay, I had the same problem with my C3300. I phoned the people i purchased from and this is what fixed it for me:

looking directly at the printer:
-open printer
-remove drum in question (the drum is what houses the toner cartridge) in my printer it is black.
-look on the right side of the drum & there is a little (approx 5mm x 5mm) hole that has a little panel that opens- push this up to open it.

-replace drum close the top and try printing.

I had to do this 2 times before it worked, but it worked.

Toner sensor error on an Oki C3520 Laser

Check the little switch/door on the right hand side of the drums.
This has worked successfully for me.

After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.


The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.

Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.

Oki C3200n Says Order K Toner after install

Two possible problems:
1. You actually got a partially empty new toner. This has happened to me once.
2. The sensor on the printer is dirty and not seeing the toner. With the toner there is a little wipe that says it is for cleaning the LED. There is an LED sensor that "reads" the presence of the toner. If this is dirty it will think there is no toner cartridge.

Oki 3300

When installing the C3300 printer, or when replacing the toner cartridge, be sure to fully insert the toner cartridge into the image drum, and make sure the blue lever is pushed ALL THE WAY toward the back of the printer (fully locked position). If it is not fully closed (locked), a "toner sensor" or "toner empty" message may result.

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
