Question about OKI C5200n Laser Printer

1 Answer

Communication Error I have been using my OKI 5200 for a long time. Today it decided to show a message in the display that says "Communication Error". It won't let me do anything. The Menu, cancel, and all other buttons do not respond. I rebooted my computer and the printer. I removed and reinstalled all toner cartridges and drum. Oki Data's help manual does not refer to this error in their troubleshooting pages. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Re: Communication Error

Disconnect from pc, restart printer on it own, same prob then will need firmware reinstalled, hard drive replaced or even main controller, Job for a tec.

Works ok alone then driver issue delete and reinstall driver check cable too.

Oki C5450 error message

The figure after the K drum Life tells you how much life there is left on the BLACK (K) drum. C indicates Cyan, M indicates Magenta and Y indicates Yellow.

Go to the USAGE MENU and look at the K DRUM LIFE setting. This will be a 2 digit percentage value. As you have just seen the message appear this will mean that the drum life remaining is ....whatever the 2 digit value displays.

The life expectancy of a drum is approximately 15,000 pages.

Oki c5200 fatal error 121

We had a similar problem with an Oki C7300. It was reading "Fatal Error 121" on the display.

We fixed it by simply unplugging the printer from a surge strip and plugging it into the wall directly. After that, the error went away and has not come back.

Don't Worry nothing is damaged.
The message usually shows when the electricity is off
it is easy! u just have to call to yr local service (Greece: +302310531334) and they will give u instructions to erase this message from the memory so as u can work again with yr oki.
THe instructions have to do with the menu on the oki display.
