SOURCE: my printer is not printing

Oki appear to only have made a B6100 model printer, this is actually classed as a workgroup mono printer and only prints in black and white, It is not a colour printer here in the UK. I think the US may have this as a C6100 and I think it is similar to the 5000 series of printers. the user manual can be found at http://my.okidata.com/PP-C6100n.nsf?opendatabase . I would print a Menu Map and check the settings and also check the driver setting is not set to B/W printing.

SOURCE: Radio Shack Oki C6100 wont print color - firmware needed !

Hey, I got it worked out so that it will print color. I called OKIDATA and initially they said they didn't know what to do and you needed to go back to Radio Shack. Then after talking to a supervisor the associate gave me the following instructions to download
1 - go to okidata.com 2 - click on "drivers" at the top of the page 3 - select "color page printer" 4 - select "C6100n" 5 - click "go" 6 - on the new page that comes up, on the left side of the page, click "Utilities" 7 - Scroll down to "English Job Accounting SERVER" and download the file (version 3.54) 8 - After the program is installed, open it and click the Printer Tab and "Add A Printer" 9 - Once the printer is found, it should show up in the list on the right of the screen. 10 - Right-click the printer and select "properties" 11 - Click the "User" tab - there should be in the status row something about "disabled color printing" 12 - Double click on the rows that say that and for each do the following:
1 - Click the "Use Restrictions Tab" 2 - De-select "print in mono" and "disable color printing"
Then when you've done that for each row, Click "ok"
And then you should be good to go. It worked on my computer right after that. I'm directly connected via USB and also connected wirelessly through our small network.

SOURCE: Radio Shack Oki C6100 does not print color

I'm not familiar with this printer, but my Samsung colour laser has an option in the driver for choosing 'color' or 'grayscale' - make sure it's not something as basic as that for starters.

SOURCE: it only prints black and white

Somebody must have followed the instructions:

Print Only in Black and White:
• Click Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes.
• Left click on Laser to highlight.
• Click File > Printing Preferences.
• Click on the Color tab.
• Click on the circle by Grayscale to move the bullet to that selection.
• Click Apply and OK.

to switch from "colour" printing to "black".

So, "unclick" the 'Grayscale' setting.

It may not be an actual problem with your printer. The two things that cause most Communication Errors are a failing Printer Cable and corrupted Printer Drivers. Problems in your actual Computer System [bad software, hardware problems, incorrect settings, etc], can also cause communication errors. You can delete your old drivers and download the latest available drivers.Bad or corrupted drivers can cause many problems. "DEINSTALL" [remove] your old drivers/printer first and then reload drivers.

Reset printer and hope it works.

he poor quality in OKI LED color printing might be fallen on one of the following problems:
- Toner is almost running out
- Drum is scratched or its life almost terminated
- Belt is scratched or its life is almost terminated
- Fuser is scratched
- LED Print head is dirty.
Depend on the knowledge and experiences of each person, the solution is solved easily or takes much time or much labor as well as money This is my suggestion that I have learned from my experiences on OKI C3200, C5300, C6100, C330 that I own:
- First, you should have extra printer accessories suchj as toner and drum cartridges (Y,B, C, M) and fuser, belt for reservation. I think you should have them since someday your printer must need them after they reach to their life limitation.
- Test one after one with the good ones. First testwith tonner cartridges. If the test is OK then continue to test drum cartridges. If it is OK then test fuser and so on. Finally if it is OK, then you must look at the LED Printer heads.
Below is the bad print-out:
:hbc-error.jpg?w=183&h=296After following the steps that we suggest, we found the LED head above the red drum is dirty. Below is the picture after it is clean:

How do you change the settings on a HP C6100 Printer to print in black ink only.


You can find the settings in the print driver software. Go into your Control Panel and right click on the C6100 in the Printers & Faxes section. Choose Properties, and go to either the Color Management or Advanced tabs. You should see an option somewhere for printing in Monochrome or Color -- select Monochrome (or it might say Grayscale) and save the change.
