Error LED blinking after paper jam, won't print

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?

Re: Error LED blinking after paper jam, won't print

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.

Re: Error LED blinking after paper jam, won't print

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

There is a yellow light flashing which i think is stopping my printer from is the symbol furtherst to the right out of the 4 symbols any ideas

The rightmost LED is the Error light. How fast is it flashing?

If the light is flashing 1 long flash every 4 seconds (no other lights flashing), then either the image drum needs to be changed or the toner is low.

If the flash is one blink a second, then you have a paper problem or a cover open.

If you installed the OKI software with the driver, you can use the Printer Status monitor to identify the problem and order the consumables if you have a slow blink error. (Open the printer control panel (Start >Programs > Status monitor) and Maximize the window to see the Printer status.

You can find the manual for the OKI B4100 here: . View all manuals on the right. If that link doesn't work, see the support site: and select the B4100 in the Color/Mono Page Printer drop down menu.

I hope this helps.

OKI B4100 paperjam warning

Acording your explained you need do
1) clean the input tray roller surface, to make sure it has enough grip force.
2) looking for a sensor around the roller rear, it could be cause the paper jam there, because if the sensor does not detect any input paper go throug there then should be stoped at roller rear.
3) if you find a optical sensor there, please use a slft cotton stick to clean its surface. (maybe open some cover needed)
hope you fix it , ask me any time please!

Oki c3400 paper jam

Run Status Monitor and make sure it is really a paper jum that prevents printer from printing. It is very likely that another reason is in place. For instance - toner empty of change drum request. All of this causes the "Attention" LED to blink: it's not only paper jam that causes it.

OKI B4100 paper output. Frustrating!

If your oki is like the 4300 we use it may be as simple as making sure the extention for the back tray (where the paper is printing to now) is pushed all the way in. This actually selects the tray option. If this tray extention is pulled out at all, your printer will print to the back tray.

Paper Jam in OKI B4300 Led Printer

This printer is designed with a dual toner/drum chamber. Do not separate these two parts. Upon opening the lid, you will find the toner/drum assembly right in front of you. Pick it up with both hands and pull straight up. After that, you should be able to take the jammed papers. Know this: once a paper is jammed, printing another paper will NEVER take the first out. Just make sure to remove the complete papers. If they break, make sure you extract all the pieces.
