OKI C5100n Laser Printer

When printing - especially after long time on stand-by mode, high colour documents print out a shadow repeat. Any clues how to rectify this? Your reply would be appreciated.

    Thank you 'trinityops' for taking the time to offer a suggestion. However the Transfer Belt life is showing 38% at present, so it would seem it doesn't need replacing yet.

    Warm regards,

My semi-educated guess would be that your transfer belt unit is getting close to the end of it's time - This is Part No. 351002.

My Oki 5150 leaves an unprinted streak when printing in black


If you open up the lid, look for the four led heads, clead them with a dry soft cloth. If problem persists look at the black drum to see if theres any clue there.

Incorect line of colour from one edge to the other


I am presuming the rest of the page prints the correct colour and this is an area in the direction of feed that is missing yellow. Try swapping the yellow and magenta drum positions and then the green text should come out a very dark blue colour. if it does then the fault is with the YELLOW drum, if there is still a noticeable Cyan stripe still then the fault will be with the LED head or engine control board.

OKI C5100 alignment issues, I think


FROM YOUR USEWR MANUAL>>>>>>>

In colour menu

AJUST REGISTRATION, press EXECUTE
Performs automatic colour registration
adjustment. Normally this is done on power
on and when the top cover is opened and
then closed. This process accurately aligns
the cyan, magenta and yellow images to the
black image.

Use oki drums and toners, clean led heads

OKI C5200 laser printer


Delete driver, download latest from oki, reinstall, is this networked or USB?

Is printer free from error lights, check page settings.

more I think about it, it seems to be a network/driver issue.

If printer can stand alone print ok ie menu map, then it is either the cable but more often the driver.

Check IP config if network.

Oki c5100n printing colors offset


posted by Halfwalkeer on Nov 13, 2007 Report abuse

Just replaced the color toner cartridges in the c5100N, two OKI (cyan and yellow) and one non-OKI (magenta). Now it appears that registration is completely off.

When printing an image, there is a band of yellow at the top about 6mm high, and a band of purple (not cyan) at the bottom about 6mm high. It seems that the yellow printing LED array is printing offset. I've verified this with a typical test page that shows yellow blipped up by several mm.

What the hell happened ? How can I fix it ?

Thanks -

Dean.
Comment by Halfwalkeer, posted on Jan 02, 2008 Drums are all at 34%. Please don't tell me that the drums only have a 50% lifetime on them, because that would just suck royally. When you say the problem is most likely drums, in what way ? What could have gone wrong ?

I was able to more or less fix the problem ... It took several iterations of ColorMenu->Adjust Registration followed by Maintenence Menu->Menu Reset, but it was finally able to pull the registration back into line.

I got worried at one point - after it was "fixed" the printer was powered off. Upon powerup again, registration was off by several centimeters ! Another round of the above finally "fixed" it again, but I haven't powered it down again.

It was a cheap printer. Maybe this is why ...

Comment by Soulvisitor, posted on Jan 02, 2008 I was thinking about the band of yellow being caused by cleaning blade wearing on drum, drums are garenteed by oki if over 50 %, under that one is on their own ie purchase new if having problems with them

If you can fix problem doing colour calibration then faulty drum is not likely the issue.

Cant stress how many problems are caused by non gen consumables in machines, highly dont recommend their use.

Yellow Lines on every print


If the optics are clean (use lint free cloth on 4 rows of black thingys underside of lid)

 

Then it sounds like the yellow drum needs to be replaced, when printing in word I'm guessing that you have it set to B/W prints hence no colour is engaged, no lines
