Okipage 8w print drum

We've replaced the print drum and it's still having problems, we found some directions that say we need to "reset the print drum" but can't figure out where to do this.

Re: okipage 8w print drum

To reset the drum counter on these it can be done by this
link to oki 8w Image Drum Cartridge instructions

or if I explain it, go to printers and faxs on your pc find the oki icon for your printer right click it and propertys.... go to printing preference tab, look in there....

If you are having image problems with new drum, I doubt any reset will help.

Post back any issues or check link below chapter 5

Hi there,

Below are instructions that I have found from the internet. Hope that they will help.

  • Open the front cover of the printer.
  • Hold down the Go button for 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Then release the Go button
  • Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  • Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer.
  • Close the front cover of the printer
  • Your drum unit should now be reset

    1.Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge. Wait 1 or 2 minutes.
    2.Replace the drum unit and toner cartridge into printer.
    3.The error message "Change Drum Soon/Drum end soon" will continue to appear if the drum counter was not reset when you replace the drum unit.
    4.To clear this error message, you need to reset the drum counter as instructed below.
    5.Make sure that the machine is turned on.

    For MFC users: To confirm you are installing a new drum, press 1. For DCP users To confirm you are installing a new drum, press the Up Arrow key

    7.When the LCD shows Accepted, close the front cover.
    8.Your drum is now reset.

    Resetting the drum unit will not improve print quality. It only resets your drum and allows you to continue to print. You decide when to replace the drum unit not the manufacturer!

I have a 10 ex laser printer from okidata. the problem is it prints lite on the right hand side (about 2 inches of the whole paper) would this be the drum? thanks

This is sometimes just the toner not being even in the cartridge. It can also be a problem with the image drum or fuse wire unit.

If you take the toner cartridge out and gent shake it side to side this will redistribute the toner in the cartridge. Put it back in and do a test print to see if that fixed your problem This should only happen when the toner gets low. You can get this from moving the printer printing most things along one side and other pretty normal stuff.

If after this the image is still light on the one side then it can a problem with the image drum or fuse wire. they are just as easy to replace as the toner unit but tend to be worth more. The wire is not that bad but still can be a few $$ and is rarely the problem. If it looks like the problem is in the image drum then I'd check out replacement cost of a laser printer. There are some pretty capable printers selling for pretty cheap these days. An image drum is worth about $125 and up and the fuse kit about $120

I get a message of toner empty on my Okipage 10ex.

You need to reset the toner count using the support software that comes with your printer (2 cds come with printer -1 driver cd and one with supplementery software)
Hope this helps

OKIpage 10i does not accept A4, and wants 'Letter'

Maybe you won't be able to use A4 paper, which I think is 3/4 inch longer than letter-size 8 1/2 x 11, according to the sizing inside the paper tray of my OKIPAGE 10e. My computer, using Windows 98, doesn't list OKIPAGE 10e among the printers I can use with my computer. Yet, Windows 98 has incorrectly identified my printer as Okidata OL-600e for some reason. I'm surprised my printer works at all with Windows 98. Thanks for detailing your question as "when I print a test page (from the printer controls), because I was unaware I could print a test page using printer controls, so I started pressing anything that looked like an electronic button on the top of my printer. I believe this trial and error eventually helped me to get rid of an unwanted 1 inch wide bar, from top to bottom of 8 1/2 x 11 pages about 2 inches from the right-hand-side of my pages. This was progressively getting worse. I thought I was going to have to buy a new printer. I bought this printer used, and without instruction booklet, so I used your info. about printer controls and started pressing electronic buttons. It's amazing, because after I made about 35 copies, now the annoying 1 inch wide black bar is gone!
