Message saying drum unit life on OKI PRINTER C510dn


This model OKI printer is not an inkjet printer, it is a color laser printer. and uses color toner cartridges.
The printer image drum unit has reached the end of its service life and this drum unit needs to be replaced.

I suggest you Google the Internet for an OKI image drum unit for your model printer, You will get various suppliers and their prices.
The image drum unit will cost approx. A$200

Have an MD 1300. printer begins then stops before actually doing the job. Get message: "cartridge change error - cannot complete print job." I have tried putting in a new cartridge but same...


What color are the cartridges that you are putting in? Are they blue or are they greyish in color? If you are trying to print on laser or other such paper, you need to be using the greyish cartridges. Also make sure that the cartridges that you put in have plenty of ribbon in them and that you've put them in facing the correct direction, you should be able to see the color names when you open the printer. If you don't, you've installed them facing the wrong way. Also make sure that you have all the correct colors installed for the print job. Unless you're printing strictly in black and white, you'd be surprised at what colors are needed to make a color, unless you're using pure Cyan, Magenta or Yellow. Any colors other than those will need to use a combo of those colors to reproduce colors properly. I hope this helps. If not, write back and say what steps you've followed to try to remedy the error.

When I try to print on HP Color LaserJet 2600n. black color doesn't appear. I changed the cartridge but the problem still. I test the cartridge on another printer and it's ok.


The cartridge is missing contact from the drum to the ground. When this contact is missing, the charge from the the laser exposed areas on the drum cannot disappear and the result is lack of image.
Remove the cartridges and compare the connecting pins of the nest for the black with other nests. One may be bend and loosing it's contact.

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.

Greyish marbeling on printed page & yellow wash allover page.


Sounds like you're probably running compatible cartridges. I sell a fair number of these cartridges to my customers, and it took a while to find a brand that actually worked. If you're seeing toner all over the place, the cartridges are most definitely the problem.

Black cartridge is low! That means you have a few pages to print but yellow is off! maybe you can change the chip on the BLACK and YELLOW cartridge!!!!

Printouts with shadow


Two things - Fuser or cartridge - stop print halfway in machine, if fault occurs before paper has gone threw the fuser then it is a faulty cartridge, if print is ok before fuser (the hot bit at rear) but gets doubled up after fuser then the hear roller in fuser are faulty change fuser....but 95 % of the time it is due to dodgy refill cartridge or worn cartridge (the rubber blade inside cartridge fails to apply enough pressure against drum to clean away old image  hence duplicating itself onto your nice clean paper! Try a known good cartridge if in doubt..
