Compatible toner is more cheaper than original, risking quality and due to low quality of the powder you can damage your printer.
I suggest to use original toner and at the printer properties set your printer to work in save toner mode.

How do i print borderless


you cant. laser printers (or led like oki) or more specifically dry toner electrostatic printers always have a margin to prevent the paper from jamming. the only way to print "full bleed" is to put paper in that is bigger than what you need, print the image, and trim it down.

Oki C3200n Says Order K Toner after install


Two possible problems:
1. You actually got a partially empty new toner. This has happened to me once.
2. The sensor on the printer is dirty and not seeing the toner. With the toner there is a little wipe that says it is for cleaning the LED. There is an LED sensor that "reads" the presence of the toner. If this is dirty it will think there is no toner cartridge.

OKI C3200N laser printer, low toner problems


For each toner there is an individual toner sensor. There is a real good possibility that the metal contacts on the sensors have become dirty. Typically, a little bit of canned air directly on the sensor contacts will resolve the issue.

After removing a toner cartidge, look to hte left side of where that cartridge rests. The sensor is located there.
