Question about OKI C5500n Printer

1 Answer

Oki C5500 printer has ghosting on most of the prints. After making a number of copies, the ghosting is greatly diminished and the copies are OK but not great. Started a couple of weeks ago. I have refilled the cartridges many times and have replaced all the drums recently. The printer is about 2.5 years old and has always printed beautifully - have printed over 23,000 copies. Not sure how much more money I want to put into it since I have read online that it is not compatible with windows 7 64 bit operating system and I will be getting a new computer this year. Any thoughts on this ghosting? Fuser is at 58% and belt is at 52%

This type of print problem associated with laser printers is due to the corono wire needing to be changed. The wire is not fully pulling the toner off of the drum completely. If you can access it, cleaning it may help (usually a lever that you are supposed to run back and forth a few times that wipes the corona wire). If the cleaning doesn't help, then it probably needs replacing.

    How expensive are these Corona wires? I have a 12 year old Oki 5300n, same problem just started. Not sure it is worth putting money into this printer.

Can i print in just black and white with my oki


You can. It's in the settings when you go to print something out. Either that or properties. It's not difficult to find, but I'm not sure where exactly it would be for that particular printer.
