Because you drum is worn out, and resetting the counter only forces the unit to keep working with weared consumables. A new drum unit is quite expensive, but it lasts 20,000 pages so the cost per print is low.

OKI B4350 error 173


That is a temperature error with the fuser, most likely the thermistor. Really the fuser needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Hi I have a Oki c6100dn Printer with fatal error message 173, How can I fix that


unfortunately, a 173 error is a fatal error which requires service, or technical skill on your part. It usually involves replacing the power supply board and fan.

Error code 173


That error means low temperature on the heat roller. The thermistor (something like an electric thermostat) measures the amount of heat needed to work. Error 173 refers a lower temperature than required, while error 172 refers overheat. The complete error list will be of no use to you, since most errors will refer you to an authorized service center.

Paper Jam in OKI B4300 Led Printer


This printer is designed with a dual toner/drum chamber. Do not separate these two parts. Upon opening the lid, you will find the toner/drum assembly right in front of you. Pick it up with both hands and pull straight up. After that, you should be able to take the jammed papers. Know this: once a paper is jammed, printing another paper will NEVER take the first out. Just make sure to remove the complete papers. If they break, make sure you extract all the pieces.

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.
