Question about OKI B4100 Laser Printer
Hello, I have a problem with my Oki B4100. After I removed the sheet after a paper jam it's now constantly blinking with the error LED (red) and won't print anything. In Windows it shows the printer is ready, when I send something to print windows tells me it is printing but the printer just stays still and blinks with that red error light.
I've tried turning it off and on again, tried removing the cartridge and putting it back again. No luck.
What can I do ? Am I missing something?
I have a similar but different model B4300. Several others, & I have found that a small piece of paper 1/2 square may lodge under a plastic guide, holding open a switch. This is very difficult to notice if you don't know where to look.
Open top lid
Remove the ink cartridge/roller drum as a single unit.
Look in the printer at the metal roller in front.
A Plastic strip on top & in front of the roller covers 2 square holes which should look dark. On your LEFT, as you face the unit, there is a small magnetic switch, to the LEFT of the LEFT square hole, under the plastic.
In my case, the paper was seen as white in the hole, and extended under the switch. I was able to grasp it with a small medical forceps, next to the switch. By gently twisting, I pulled it out without taking the unit apart.
The printer then worked perfectly after the paper under the switch was removed.

You need to download the utility from oki for this printer. This is seperate from the driver. The utility then tells you what is wrong ie paper jam ,out of toner etc. The paper jam light serves as a warning light also so it might not only be a paper jam that activates it.
Hope this helps
