Hi i have the solucion a error of sensor black oki c3100. For two times i have the problem and a long time study the problem. it´s the solucion. Because i spanish the solution is in spanish languaje.
Desmontar la tapa semitransparente redonda del lateral.
El sensor lleva un iman incorporado que dice a la impresora cuando el toner se a agotado. El polvo de impresion lleva impurezas o las ponen a proposito y hacen que el iman no pueda levantar la leva que hace contanto con el sensor. Con un destornillador limpiar las impurezas que estan pegadas al iman por dentro del toner. Cerrar y listo. YA FUNCIONA JAJAJAJAJAJAJAJA.

Sensor window on the drum is closed - or the r/h side of the printer has a sensor that needs cleaning.

Toner Sensor Error for Cyan and Toner Out for Black

First, I wouldn't worry about the "K toner out", it might finally disappear once you get rid of the Cyan problem, if indeed you replaced the black toner for a new and healthy one.

Make sure that the cyan toner cartridge is securely fitted in it's drum unit, and the "knob" that opens the toner cartridge is in fully open position. Sometimes when manipulating inside the printer the "knob" might get moved a bit.

Generally, the toner cartridge sensor is connected via the drum unit, so usually the problem is with proper seating of the drum unit and good electrical contact between the metal fields on the sides of the drum unit and contacts protruding inside the printer. Cleaning both of any residue might help.

Once I had a defective toner cartridge, that caused such problem, but it was the contact between the toner cartridge and the drum that was broken. You have to experiment a bit.
I'm pretty sure in this model it is possible to swap two units - if you swap for example cyan with magenta, and observe if the error moves from cyan to magenta or not, you can draw conclusions if the problem is with the toner/drum, or with the printer not seeing the cartridge for some reason (sensor inputs killed by static electricity for example).

Error message after installing new tonner

Check the little switch/door on the left hand side of the drums.
This has worked successfully for me.

After replacement of a C3530 Image Drum, the message, "Toner Sensor Error" is displayed.


The plastic shutter in the ID is fully or partially covering the toner sensor window.

Move the cover upward to allow for the sensor to become fully exposed prior to reinstalling the drum.

Toner sensor problems

On the base of machine after removing drums and transport, there are 4 sets of 3 pins that connect to left hand bottom of each drum, these can get toner on them and not make proper contact, each set of 3 pins just pop out with the help of a flat blade, out of base to be cleaned. in yout case just switch the set under the cyan with another lot from different colour.

I am taking it that you are using genuinne non imported oki drum and toner. If this doesnt fix your problem then you must have fauly drum/toner

OKI 9800 with "342" error code

problem might be with toner recycle coil which runs around the back of the belt unit. as the cyan unit is the furthest down the line if any blockages occur it can back up and lift the drum unit up. check the square opening of the recycle unit on the cyan end. Make sure you change waste toner unit when prompted or you might break a gear (big job) Karl Oki engineer
