Question about OKI C Office Equipment & Supplies
Amber's solution worked on an oki c5150 as well as on her 5500.
At first, I got into other menus and did not see what she'd described. I cancelled out, then re-ran her procedure following its steps EXACTLY... At the very end, I may have seen one additional message - "EXECUTE" - which I "entered" to launch the process. Printer now works while I find instructions on how to replace "just the drum".
The OEM drum assembly is very easy to change but costs about $125. I found (on Universal Ink & Toner) a drum-only replacement for $30, but there was no instruction sheet with it. This solution has allowed me to keep working while I figure out how to install the new drum. Print quality was excellent right up until the manufacturer's internal counter shut printing down. Quality remains excellent after applying the above solution.
THANK YOU AMBER

To get the OKI C5500 to keep going (without opening and closing the lid constantly) in spite of toner cartridge & drum life messages:
1) Turn off printer.
2) Hold down "+" and "-" buttons at the same time, and keep them held down while turning printer back on... continue to hold until the word "OKIUSER" appears.
3) Use "-" button to scroll down to "FUSE KEEP MODE".
4) Press "Enter" button, hold for approx. 10 seconds, then release.
5) Press "Enter" button again, followed by rapid release and repress with hold for approx. 10 seconds.
6) Release "Enter" button, then press and let up one more time quickly.
7) You will see "INITIALING" and then "ONLINE" messages.
If you currently have an error message for toner cartridge life, the message will continue to be shown until after you've sent one print job, and then it will usually disappear for awhile. It will stay gone for longer if you have your printer set up so the toner sensor is turned off.
If you currently have a error message for drum life, it will continue to appear, but you will still be able to print.
Beware that you will have to keep a closer eye on print quality (since you are no longer relying on error message to tell you when your toner cartridges are in need of a replacement or refill, or the drum truly needs to be changed or refurbished).
Please note that anytime you turn the printer off, you will have to go through the whole process again when you turn it back on. It doesn't take long though, and will quickly become habit whenever turning on your printer for the day!

It usually resets automatically when you replace the drum/toner units. Are you trying to get it to reset before it's supposed to? I don't know of any way you can do that.

Turn off the printer
Turn the printer on whilst holding down Menu button. (Display says user maintenance.)
Press the menu button three times. (The display will say drum counter reset.)
Press enter key. The system should go back on line, if not press on-line key.
You can just put a new fuse on the drum.
When you insert the drum the machine resets the counter and then blows the fuse. So if the unit is ok and you just wish to run it through another cycle just change the fuse.
This means you cannot just put a full unit in from another machine as it will not reset the counter until you put a new fuse in it as you found out.
This applies to drums transfer belt etc.
Note with regard to refilling the toner, some printers have 2 sections. 1 where you put the fresh toner and an after collection section in the same unit. You must empty the 2nd section if you refill it more than 2 or 3 times
