Oki C3200 message on screen says '171 Fatal


Yes it can be saved, it is indicating the fuser thermister is open or below temperature. Try opening the printer and restarting it. If that does not fix it you may have to replace the thermister or the fuser

Our OKI C5100 is showing 171:Fatal error. What should we do?


The 171 Fatal error:

Upper Thermistor, State:Open

When an open circuit has been detected in the heat roller thermistor (low temperature)

Check the heater connector and the thermistor connector to make sure they are seated properly. If OK you probably need to replace the fuser.

Hope this helps.

Oki c5200 fatal error 121


We had a similar problem with an Oki C7300. It was reading "Fatal Error 121" on the display.

We fixed it by simply unplugging the printer from a surge strip and plugging it into the wall directly. After that, the error went away and has not come back.

Oki C5800 constant 172 fatal error


This error code means that the fuser temperature is low. You need to replace either the fuser or the thermistor inside the fuser.

Service Call: 173: Fatal Error


That is a fuser erron code. Abnormal temperature. You will need to replace the fuser. Sometimes I have sen a buildup of toner on the thermistor. If you can get to it. You can try to clean the toner off. Be careful. Very hot.
