When to change the ink

Hi!  We have an Oki Data C5800 that we use with our Mac.  When we go to print it says that the supplies are low and when we view the supply levels we see that the image drums are below the little grey bar.  Our question is when do we change the drums?  When it shows that the color is gone or when the color is to or past the little grey bar?  In other words, is the little grey bar just a warning that the ink will be gone soon or that it is now ready to be changed?

Thanks!

Lisa

Its a reference point for you to see how much is left, it should still print but will get lighter as the toner goes down.

Error 980 on OKI C5900 fatal error


First, there is no model C5900. There is a model C5800. On the assumption that you are having this issue with a C5800 then the problem is media wrapped around the fuser. After cooling you can try to unravel or unwind the wrapped media but you may need to replace the fuser.

There is now ink in the machine. You just have to replace the print ribbon. This is the small black box that is mounted to the printhead.

My Oki C5800 says "Replace Belt, 355: Belt Life" but I was told I could reset it without changing it if it was still good. How?


requires a fuse that sits underneath the transfer belt. However the belt itself would be full of waste toner that would need to be emptied

Found this at Fixyourownprinter.com

1. Turn machine on while pushing and holding the TWO up/down menu buttons at same time.
2. Menu window will show "OKI USER"
3. Scroll to " Engine Dialog Mode" is indicated. Push Enter button.
4. "Diagnostic Mode xx.xx.xx S-Mode is indicated.
5. Scroll to "NV-Ram initial" is indicated. Push ENTER.
6. Window shows "NV-Ram- Initial Table 1".
7. Push ONLINE and ENTER Buttons simultaneously and HOLD for 10 seconds after you see "Executing Reset" appear in menu window.
8. Restart printer.

All toner, drum, fuser and transfer figures return to 100%.

Worked for me when I had the same error. Hope it helps.

Oki C5800 constant 172 fatal error


This error code means that the fuser temperature is low. You need to replace either the fuser or the thermistor inside the fuser.
