I have the same problem. I had some ghosting on my pages before I got the error and turned off and turned on and it worked for a little then got ghosting again and then the error.
The technichian told me it was the fuser unit in the back. It is simple to replace, just like a drum, you pull it out and put the new one in. You can find them fairly inexpensive but check your warranty. This model comes with a one year warranty and that fuser should fall under warranty.

That particular error indicates a fuser failure. Try turning off the printer and re-seating the fuser. If this does not clear the message then the fuser needs to be replaced. With such a low number of prints warranty should cover it.

Fatal Error 121


Hi and welcome to Fixya!
"Fatal Error" on your printer display or status monitor simply means a problem has occurred requiring action to clear. Fatal Error explanations are not usually found in the manual. You can check the list of error codes from the link below:
http://www.c8600.co.uk/index.asp?printername=C8600&menumode=0&content=errorcodes
RECOMMENDED STEPS:
First, try turning off your printer then turning it back on. If you're still getting the same error message, make sure the printer is plugged directly into the wall. Often, the issue is power-related.
If the problem persists, write down the message including the 3-digit error code number and send an email to "support@okidata.com" or call Oki Data Customer Support (1-800-654-3282) for assistance.
NOTE: If you see a series of letters and numbers scrolling across the display after the 3-digit error code, write it down and report them when calling or emailing Customer Support.

    Try this - WARNING - will reset everything to factory defaults

    The machine must be put back into "Shipping Mode" in order for the consumable counters to reset.

    In order to place the printer back in "Shipping Mode" do the following:

    1. For the C72/74/92/94 models, hold the (1) and (5) keys down, for the C73/75/93/95 hold (0), (1), (6), and (7), while turning the printer power on. (Hold until "MAINTENANCE MODE" is displayed)

    2. Press (0) five times until "ENGINE DIAG MODE XX.XX" is displayed.

    3. Press the (2) and (4) keys simutaneously, "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 3" should now be displayed.

    4. Press the (5) key once, "LOCAL PARAMETER SET" should now appear on the display.

    5. Press the (6) key three times until "FACTORY WORKING MODE" is displayed.

    6. Once "FACTORY WORKING MODE" is displayed, press (3) once so "Shipping Mode" (Fuse Cut Enabled) is displayed in the bottom line.

    7. Next press and hold (3) & (7) together, until "Shipping Mode" stops flashing.

    8. Power the printer off and back on, now the printer will reset the consumable counters. ecblank.gif ecblank.gif ecblank.gif
