Re: message on printer
Your printer has counter on it that keeps track of the number pages that have been printed with it. It is warning you that the drum unit is coming close to the end of it's rated life. Order a black drum unit and have it on hand. Some time in the near future the printer will stop operating until you install the new drum which will come with instructions on how to install it.
If you order it now, you will avert a "Crisis" later.

This model OKI printer is not an inkjet printer, it is a color laser printer. and uses color toner cartridges. The printer image drum unit has reached the end of its service life and this drum unit needs to be replaced.
I suggest you Google the Internet for an OKI image drum unit for your model printer, You will get various suppliers and their prices. The image drum unit will cost approx. A$200
Push the menu button on the C5200 Printer. Pust it twice or until you see Usage Menu on the LCD screen. Once you see it, press enter. Press menu button to cycle through the various details for each item in your printer. You will see toner life and drum life for each color and black as well. You will also see Fuser life and page counts and much more.
The figure after the K drum Life tells you how much life there is left on the BLACK (K) drum. C indicates Cyan, M indicates Magenta and Y indicates Yellow. Go to the USAGE MENU and look at the K DRUM LIFE setting. This will be a 2 digit percentage value. As you have just seen the message appear this will mean that the drum life remaining is ....whatever the 2 digit value displays. The life expectancy of a drum is approximately 15,000 pages.
