I got that error on the first day i got my oki c5950 it was a result of a paper jam in the fuser unit, i removed the jamed paper but the error was still there, i contacted oki support and got a detailed explanation on how to fix this error with a patch file, so if u or anyone out there r still having that problem send me a mail on ecks80@hotmail.com and i will forward u the info.

If you have 980 fatal error and have checked that there is no paper stuck in fuser or you have removed the paper and still have error, then you should contact Oki, there is a fix for this exact problem, if you contact them they will send you a patch which you will need to run on the printer. This will fix your problem

    How can I get the patch? My printer is out of warranty and the rep's only solution is to buy another fuser which may or may not fix this.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error 980 on OKI C5600 means that the error by media clinging to the fuser and the fuser is required to be replaced.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

    the above comment is incorrect, a patch needs to be applied to correct problem...DON'T replace fuser

The error means that the media is wrapped around the heat roller of the fuser. The only way to reset this error is to replace the fuser unit.

  • arryzed Jul 13, 2011

    the above comment is incorrect, remove ALL paper from fuser, then a software patch needs to be applied to correct problem available from Oki...DON'T replace fuser until you have tried this first, because you will still get the same error even with new fuser

  • dablaze Sep 12, 2011

    That's true! I replaced the fuser with a new unit and i still get the error message!

SOURCE: 980: Fatal Error

From the Service Manual:
*Service call
980:Error

*Error by media
clinging to the fuser

*Media has clung to the fuser.

*Power OFF
Replace the fuser unit.

Suggestion -
Before you replace the fuser, take it out and check for a piece of stuck label, paper, etc. You can spin the fuser roller by turning the gear on the side.

SOURCE: does anyone know what is

If you look on top of the fuser roller(upper orange roller), there is a thermistor (orange rectangle plastic that rides on the roller) you will see four wires going into that housing. Two are for the thermistor and the other two is for the fuse that is built into the housing. You would have to use a soldering iron to melt the plastic that the fuse is sitting in. You would have to figure out what to use as a fast blow fuse.

Okidata makes it difficult to take out the thermistor because the nut is locktite on the screw. Try using the soldering iron to melt it. Just make sure you dont damage the thermistor.

OKI C330dn Call Service fatal Error:980


That particular error indicates a fuser failure. Try turning off the printer and re-seating the fuser. If this does not clear the message then the fuser needs to be replaced. With such a low number of prints warranty should cover it.

Error message: Service Call 980 - Fatal Error


It means a call to OKI will be necessary. Typically, fatal errors are related to internal ROM, or board components that effect the boot process of the printer. When it can't boot - you get this type of message.
