OKI C5200 I have been printing with this unit for 2 years, now it started printing with a strip down the left side of the paper from top to bottom with much less toner than the rest of the document (to light to read). Please help

Clean led head's on underside of lid, check tranport belt under drums for damage, test with different colour does the strip exist in all colours or just black?

Re: OKI C5200

Just a thought for others... is this an image drum problem?
Also, if you haven't done this yet - try gently shaking the toner cartridges to redistribute the toner. Just make sure you do it gently and over a newspaper or rugs in case some toner spills. One last idea - turn off the printer and turn back on after a few minutes?

Take the toner-cartridge out, and gently tilt it left-and-right
to redistribute the remaining toner in the cartridge.
Reinstall it.

OKI c5200 fuser is jamming, How to CLEAN IT b4 I try replacing it

There are not set instructions to clean the fuser rollers on the 5K range of printers from Oki, this is designed to be a consumable that is replaced at regular intervals through the printers life. this means there is little access to the rollers. Firstly, remove the fuser from the printer and allow it to cool down. At the rear of the fuser, on most models there is a flap that can be opened to give very limited access to the rollers. All that can really be done is to wipe the rollers with a soft cloth to remove any debris that has built up and turn the rollers using the gears on the side. The blue lever on top of the Fuser can be used to separate the rollers to make the task a little easier.

Replaced the belt and fuser on a oki c5200, now paper gets jammed and accordians in fuser

This will happen if the belt isn't properly settled, so that the sheet of paper enters at a slight angle and jams. The roller loader will then fold it into an accordion shape.

While I don't understand how the printer let you print (the sensor should have raised an alarm), you could try extracting the belt unit and re-settling it. Verify the blue retainers have been fully rotated (one eighth turn clockwise) and the handle is completely down.

My informed guess without seeing print sample is that your oki needs fuser unit replaced. Look at orange rollers should br smooth no wrinkles.

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.
