STREAKS WHEN PRINTING

OKI C5200: JUST REPLACED THE K TONER DRUM;
PRINTER WAS PRINTING FINE UNTIL THEN. NOW I HAVE A STREAK ON THE LEFT & RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE PAGE [ABOUT A 1/2 INCH FROM THE MARGINS]. STREAK IS MORE PRONOUNCED ON THE LEFT. SEEMS TO ONLY BE EFFECTING THE BLACK.
I HAVE TAKEN THE CARTRIDGE OUT AND GENTLY MOVED IT BACK AND FORTH TO DISTRIBUTE THE TONER.

    I have the same problem and situation. My streak is only on the left and is about an inch and a half from the left edge and is a half inch wide. It only affects the black ink. I have replaced all the color toners and cartridge, wiped down the unit. Black toner could be sputtering from the left side of its cartridge. I have taken it apart and put it back together. It seemed to solve itself for three pages but was more noticeable after those three pages.

    I have the same problem and situation. I changed toner cartridge and drums for all colors. The streak I have however, is only on the left side an inch and a half in from the edge and is half inch wide. It only affects the black ink. I have pulled cartridges out and shaked them, cleaned around it, and it seemed to work only for three pages, then came back again more noticeably.

My oki data C5200 in printing a faded picture along the right side of the page only. I have cleaned the print heads and checked the levels in the cartridges. Everything seems to be fine. Can you help?

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

We have recently bought a second hand OKI C5200 Colour Laser Printer and even though the black and white print seems to be great the clour is coming out with coloured streaks, what would you recommend?


One or more of the drums may be defective. Swap the black with another color and print a document. If that color printed the charectors ok, then continue the test with the other drums each taking a turn in the Black drum position until you find the bad drum.

Oki 5150 color are not print right


You need to replace the magenta drum. Just because there is life left; it's possible it is scratched. Also, take a cotton ball dip in alcohol and wipe the LED's off when the cover is open; those black things that are hanging down from the cover. Also, make sure your drums are installed in the proper spots (magenta in magenta slot). If the toner "rubs off" after it prints... then the fuser is defective.

Streaking problem on print out


You have a bad drum cleaning blade. There is no way to replace it without buying a new toner cartridge.

OKI C5200 - Faded black print area


Trying cleaning the black LED's that are on the top portion of the open clamshell. Use rubbing alcohol on a rag and wipe each bar x4/. These units charge the drum surface where print is going. This should work.

Oki C5800 prints magenta streaks


Streaks can be caused by a number of things
The fuser
The ETB
The toner cartridge
The firmware
The printer needs a cleaning.
The slot in the printer.
Incorrect Media.

Try cleaning the printer, use a lint-free cloth for the ETB, DO NOT touch the belt with your fingers, the oil from fingers will often make things worse.
Always use a lint-free cloth, if you ever encounter dirt inside the printer, dampen the cloth.

Calibrate the printer.
From the printer's control panel menu
Configure Device-> Print Quality-> Calibrate now.
(Press the Checkmark key to advance through menus)
