Oki C5100 feed fail - weak clutch/gearing

I have not a lot of experience with these printers so could use some guidance.

The paper will not feed from the cassette tray and when I pull the cassette and try to print while holding up the paper sense flag it will try turning the pickup and hopping roller but any pressure on them at all will stop them dead. It appears to be in the gearing assembly or clutch on the right side of the printer. It looks like a big job to replace anything there and I don't even see how the bracket assembly-sub, or the planet gear cluster comes out. The service manual doesn't even cover these items.
Any tips on this would be highly appreciated.

I have the exact same issue. Does anyone have a service manual for this model so I can see just how big a job replacing the clutch is?

Thanks -- Steve

OKI C5100 printer Right side of printed page has repeat print. What do I have to do to get a clean copy without the duplicate print?

You have to determine if the drum cartridge or the fuser is the problem. Do a panic stop before the paper hits the fuser and see if it has the residual image. If it is clean then the fuser is the problem.

When printing on my oki c5100 text or image - it prints fine but with a smudge/ghost of the image or text also on the paper. I know I need to order new toner - could this be why?

Open you printer and pull out the fuser assembly and look if the upper roller is fine because if it`s damaged it could lead to the double image.

I have oki microline 320 elite and printer head jams

In my own experience, Okidata printers have a nasty habit of collecting a lot of paper dust. To start out, I would suggest a really good cleaning, with no paper in the machine, with a can of compressed air. If that does not solve your problem, you might have to replace your feed wheel assembly. Hope this helps!

Paper jam light keeps flashing

try realigning the paper into your printer. the paper may not be able to to feed directly into the printer.

1. try reinstalling the driver
2. reboot the printer.
3. try to feed the paper into the printer by looking for the feed button on your printer. or you can enter the printer settings and look for the maintenance task components.

pm me if you still experience problems. I will give you another options. Thank you. :)

I think I need to replace the fuse in my Oki c5100 printer.

I bet you don't need to replace the fuse, these machine have a FUSER that needs to be changed, it is the hot bit at rear, after the four toner and drums, two locks right and left, lift black unit at rear out, replace unit called a FUSER (melts powder to paper ie fuses it)

Connection problems for oki C5100. Eek.

Your USB cable is either too long (more than 9 feet), or too thin. This makes the connection strong enough for status, but too weak for data transmission. Install a good quality cable and let me know.
