SOURCE: HP 2600n crackling noise at top feed - paper creased

Can you wipe the toner off the page or smear it? Most likely the fuser has had the fixing film fail. Thus the crackling noise. You have two solutions, 1. replace the fuser with a ne or rebuilt one or 2. find a fixing film and replace it yourself. Both jobs require removing the fuser which means disassembling the printer. Check Printer Works for a diagram and Google for the best price on a fuser. Hope this helps.

No worn picker cause it is getting past paper rego area and stopping at the fuser.Check to see if bottom fuser roller (orange rubber one under metal one) is wrincled or the plastic coating is coming off to the side


If not then one of the paper path switchs is sticking sometimes down and not springing back (common)  when paper has exited area.there is 3 or 4

SOURCE: OKI C3200 My printer has stopped

any of the minute piece of paper oor any dust particles are definately remained in the printer for because of that the gears are not been able to move properly and come to its exact position and showing this error.
or the other problem could be that there is a sensor in the printer that sence the paper in the tray .so that sensor is moved from its orignal position or broken while removing the paper its deticting that error continuously.because if its minor problem then unplugging the printer for sometime and then replugging it should definately help.
both the gear problem and the sensor problem needs your printer to be checked by qualified technician at your place.
it would not cost much as the replacement of sensor will not be more then 5$ plus the technicians service charge.

rate the solution if helped.
feel free for further assistance.

SOURCE: oki c5250n paper jam

Unfortunately this may require and engineers visit. If you pull down the MP assembly by using the handle in the middle at the front of the printer you can then see a small "gearbox" at the right hand side of the transfer belt. This is common to feeds from both trays and could be worn. If you remove tray 1 and temporarily tape up the sensor arms to fool the printer into thinking it has a full tray installed, you can the test, by applying a little pressure to the feed roller, to see if it positively moves forward or if you are able to stop it turning. On a brighter note, you may just need new rollers instead of cleaning them.

My oki b 4600 print one page then get jamed paper how i can fix this problem please help me

Age and wear can make a roller shiny and so, slippery, and so cause bad paper feeding

To fix a shiny roller, rub it down with a coarse nail file which yes, will often involve stripping the machine, at least partly.

Consider also, how much would a new machine cost, and take into account that such a thing would come with new ink

My oki c3400n continual paper jam's at the fuser. Paper comes out of the printer about 2 inches then jam's. I clear it and it happens again. Don't see any contamination on the fuser roller.

There are paper path cleaner sheets that you can get at supply stores or on line. They are sticky on both sides. They pick up paper dust from the rollers as it passes through the printer.

My oki c3400 printer makes a really loud clicking noise when you first turn printer on and it cycles through, and it also does it when it cycles through printing. Any ideas what the problem could be?

My OKI C3300 was the same and an engineer found the Cyan drum was bouncing on its gears being very stiff to turn. We changed the drum but it was still the same. Changing the cartridge cured the problem, that was jamming the drum.

Close cover 310: cover open, but it isn't


had the same problem. It is easily fixed.
On my printer a OKI C5750 is had to main covers, at the front (which you have to open to fix a paper jam) and a big cover on top (which you need to open to replace toners).
On the left is a piece of plastic which (when closed) presses on a switch.
When you open both covers, and close the top one, you can see it on the left when it comes down.

You can easily remove the error (only for a brief moment) by prushing the shining metal switch to the back.

But the problem is that one of the rollers is in a wrong position.
So just take a flat screwdriver and press on the bottom roller, and it will click and the problem will be gone when you close the covers.

Printer no longer feeds paper from paper tray; I tried cleaning it, it sounds like the printer is trying to grab the paper but it does not grab it.

Remove the paper tray. Use a lint-free cloth dampened with rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) to wipe all around the black "rubberish" wheels right underneath the unit where paper tray goes. I learned that by calling Okidata.

Oki c3400 paper jam

Run Status Monitor and make sure it is really a paper jum that prevents printer from printing. It is very likely that another reason is in place. For instance - toner empty of change drum request. All of this causes the "Attention" LED to blink: it's not only paper jam that causes it.
