    Paper jam. I replaced the paper into the fuser and after on the display is "fatal error 980".

  • mfowle Jun 04, 2008

    I am having the same error message on my oki c5800. I have looked the fuser over and found no media stuck in there. I have also tried replacing the fuser with a new one with no luck. I have tried both the new fuser and the old one from this printer in another printer and have printed fine with no error messages with both.

    Do you have any other suggestions on how to clear this error?

    Thank you for any advice you may be able to offer.

From the Service Manual:
*Service call
980:Error

*Error by media
clinging to the fuser

*Media has clung to the fuser.

*Power OFF
Replace the fuser unit.

Suggestion -
Before you replace the fuser, take it out and check for a piece of stuck label, paper, etc. You can spin the fuser roller by turning the gear on the side.

OKI C330dn Call Service fatal Error:980


That particular error indicates a fuser failure. Try turning off the printer and re-seating the fuser. If this does not clear the message then the fuser needs to be replaced. With such a low number of prints warranty should cover it.

Fatal Error 121


Hi and welcome to Fixya!
"Fatal Error" on your printer display or status monitor simply means a problem has occurred requiring action to clear. Fatal Error explanations are not usually found in the manual. You can check the list of error codes from the link below:
http://www.c8600.co.uk/index.asp?printername=C8600&menumode=0&content=errorcodes
RECOMMENDED STEPS:
First, try turning off your printer then turning it back on. If you're still getting the same error message, make sure the printer is plugged directly into the wall. Often, the issue is power-related.
If the problem persists, write down the message including the 3-digit error code number and send an email to "support@okidata.com" or call Oki Data Customer Support (1-800-654-3282) for assistance.
NOTE: If you see a series of letters and numbers scrolling across the display after the 3-digit error code, write it down and report them when calling or emailing Customer Support.

Error 980 means that there is something stuck to the fuser. Check to see if there is something is stuck in the fuser. If you can't clean it out, then you will need to replace it.

Error message: Service Call 980 - Fatal Error


It means a call to OKI will be necessary. Typically, fatal errors are related to internal ROM, or board components that effect the boot process of the printer. When it can't boot - you get this type of message.

A message keeps flashing up 231 fatal error. Can you let me know what I need to do. 0116 240 3430 Dorothy


231 fatal error is telling you that the data from the chip on the toner cartridge is invalid or cannot be read.

This may happen for one of the following reasons:

1)The printer is unable to read the data on toner chip because of toner dust or dirt inside the printer.
Solution: Clean the printer inside, clean toner slot and drum.. See:Clean your laser printer.

2)Either the toner is not an original cartridge, it is refurbished or refilled, or the chip on the toner cartridge is defective.
Solution: replace the toner, or replace the Chip on toner cartridge.

3)The toner sensor in your OKI is defective.
Solution: Call the support number listed on the printer manual to arrange repair.

OKi C5800ldn 231: fatal error 03


I have the Oki 5650 which had been great for about 18 months. Then found that the C cartridge was showing error as 'not installed'. After much fiddling about with it and checking on the internet I can now rectify this by either pushing down on the top of the printer while it boots up, or removing the small chip on the left top of the toner (make sure you have 'earthed' yourself to prevent any static damaging the chip when you handle it!) and taping securly onto the top of the cartridge above the chips proper slot. This now has been working OK for 6 months. Strange how this only affects the C cartridge (which has also been replaced and had the same problem). I suspect that the printers RFID chip reader for the C cartridge is having problems reading the chip and moving the chip closer to the reader by either taping to the cartridge top of puching on the top cover while printer boots up resolves the problem (for now anyway!) This can also trigger the 'service call 231 fatal error 03' message which also disappears if you follow the above procedure.
Hope this helps you.
