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 prints are coming out with Horizontal lines on them. What can I do to rectify this problem?


Please try this approach:
  1. On the printer operator panel, press Options repeatedly until Cartridges appears.
  2. Press the right arrow button until Clean appears on the display.
  3. Press Select. A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to the clogged nozzles.
  4. Print your document again to verify that the print quality has improved. If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times.

After changing the ink catridges and resetting the drum fuse lately (note: it is known that the fuse will be blown off after certain number of prints but otherwise is in good condition), my Epson Acculaser...


The repeating image is a ghost image, and here is described what it can be. Probably if you solve this, you also solve the red-dot problem. If possible, I would suggest to replace the wiper blade.
Repeating images on laser printerThis likely means a faint ghost of the main printout at a distance equal to the circumference of one of the rollers or photosensitive drum.

Depending on where the problem originates, this could be a bad wiper (cleaning) blade, faulty corona, or incomplete fusing.


  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of the photosensitive drum, it is a wiper blade, erase lamp, or corona problem.A residual latent image or residual toner is sticking to the drum and not being properly cleared.

  • If the distance between successive images is equal to the circumference of one of the fuser rollers, then the fusing may not be complete due to damaged rollers or an incorrect temperature setting.

It is easy to determine where the problem is located: Interrupt a printout in mid-stride (where part of the paper is between the toner/developer and fuser. If the un-fused image has ghosting, it is a fault in the area of the drum

  1. Lift the document cover to expose the platen glass.

  2. Wipe the platen glass (A), white areas (B), and transparent sheet (C) with a clean, soft, lint-free cloth moistened with water.

  3. Then wipe with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth making sure there are no residues left, especially on the platen glass.

  4. Close the document cover and make a copy of a text document to confirm the black line has disappeared.

use plane paper of 60-80 gsm if your printed paper is offset/screen print it will repeat and shadow appears because of high temprature in fussing unit.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only


Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

Print alignment failed / have tried to rectify several times


It seems like it may be a hardware problem, but the best bet for you would be to reinstall the printer drivers. It should fix it,

Double printing


Despite much deep cleaning, the printer is still not printing correctly - it misses out colours, letters etc. Do we need a new head, and how do we fix it please.
