    That is my point, I do not service the products and therefore, I do not know HOW to clean the machine. I would like someone to tell me HOW to clean the machine in plain english, not to read some manual that I can download for free and try to figure it out.

    I would prefer a phone communication but would not like my number posted on-line for everone to see
    Thanks

Do a head cleaning calibration through the menu on the front panel, or through the print management software. Let me know what you find.

After changing toner it still has a grey spot in the middle of the page that does not print dark enough


The LED array probably needs cleaning. This is located on the lid that you open when changing the drum/toner and is a dark coloured bar going left-right across the lid. Clean this with a cloth. Also check the opening in the drum where you can see the green cylinder from the top for any small obstructions and remove if necessary. Any obstructions or dirt on the LED will line up with the print defect on the page and should be easy to remove. Be careful not to damage the green cylinder.

Dark lines appear on each page I print on the printer. I have cleaned every roller, dumped the old toner and added new toner.


Are the lines vertical or horizontal?

vertical lines can be caused by several things.
Since you said that cleaned the rollers, then here are other options
1: Most common is a bad toner cartridge.
2: try cleaning the fuser entrance guide.
3: could be a defective formatter - formatter replacement the fix.
4: worn fuser. fuser replacement is the fix.

horizontal lines are probably repetitive down the page, and are usually caused by a defective toner cartridge or fuser assembly. occasionaly a transfer roller will cause it as well.

Toner loves to get baked onto the fuser and cause all kinds of print problems. Not much you can do but to replace the fuser when this happens.

Assuming that you are using the same paper and have not changed any of the consumables you should do the following:

1. Clean LED head with lens cleaner or soft tissue.
  1. Remove the toner cartridge and give it a few shakes then reinstall it.
  2. The Toner Could be low so Change toner cartridge.
4. Make sure that the paper is not damp as this will cause fading and poor quality printing and images.
  1. The image drum may have been light contaminated so remove it from the printer and store it in a totally dark place for several hours then reinstall it.
  2. If the image drum is dirty then wipe it very gently with soft tissues, being careful not to scratch it.
  3. Open the top cover and check to be sure that each toner cartridge is fully seated and that each toner cartridge lock lever is pushed all the way back.
  4. Press the top cover release latch and open, then close, the cover.
  5. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA TYPE and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  6. Check MEDIA MENUTRAY1 MEDIA WEIGHT and set as required. Do the same for TRAY2 and MPT.
  7. Possibly set the value of media weight in the menu to the next heaviest one.
  8. Check PRINT MENURESOLUTION setting and set to 600 x 1200DPI
  9. Check PRINT MENUTONER SAVE MODE and make sure this is OFF
  10. Check PRINT MENU – MONO PRINT SPEED and make sure this is set to MIXED SPEED
  11. Check the COLOUR MENU – DENSITY CONTROL and set this to AUTO
  12. Check the COLOUR MENU – AUTO DENSITY and set this to EXECUTE
  13. Check the COLOUR MENUCMY 100% DENSITY is set to ENABLE if you want a glossier black finish.

Oki C5300 toner "leaking" on to surface


1 - take out all consumables
2 - use canned air to clean interior (do it outdoors)
3 - spray toner cartridges to remove stray toner (keep them connected to the drums, do not separate)
4 - make sure toner carts are properly installed and locked down

Oki c5200 printer problem


Possibly the cartridges have been put in the wrong place, you need to clean the machine out, as the wrong toners will be on the wrong drums, you may need to replace the drums and get a new transfer belt.

Double print or a shadow print


Unfortunately your drum unit is shot. The mechanism that cleans excess toner from the drum surface is worn out or has developed a problem. The materials needed to repair are generally not available. If this is happening then the surface of the drum is probably near the end of its usable life anyway. Save yourself a lot of grief and aggravation. Bite the bullet and buy a new drum unit. Office Depot, Staples, etc. usually offer them at about $105.

Print


Cleaning a laser printer can solve minor problems, maintain print quality, and prolong periods between professional cleanings. Clean your printer when print quality deteriorates or when you change toner cartridges. Manually Cleaning Inside the Printer Steps: 1. Unplug the printer from the surge suppressor. 2. Remove the internal paper trays. 3. Remove the toner cartridge and place it on a piece of scrap paper. 4. Clean inside the toner cavity with a dry, lint-free cloth and brush (if a brush is supplied with the printer). 5. Clean the printer mirror gently with the brush. Don't touch the mirror if a brush isn't provided. 6. Wipe away dust and spilled toner. Remove paper fragments. 7. Clean the rollers, but don't touch the sponge roller. 8. Replace the toner cartridge. Tips: To remove unfused toner from the rollers following a paper jam, print 5 to 10 blank pages on scrap paper. Wipe toner from clothing if necessary, then immediately wash toner-soiled clothes in cold water. Go to your printer manufacturer's Web site (see Related Sites) for detailed cleaning instructions. Warnings: Don't use any liquid cleaners inside the printer. Initiating Automatic Cleaning Through Printer Software Steps: 1. Open the printer software by double-clicking on a printer icon or specific printer utility program, or opening a document and then selecting Print from the File menu. 2. In the printer software, look for a button labeled Options, Troubleshooting, Toolbox, Printer Utilities or something similar. (This varies by manufacturer.) 3. Follow the instructions on the screen. 4. Repeat the cleaning process if the results aren't satisfactory.
