OKI 9800 with "342" error code

I have an OKI C9800. After replacing the waste toner cartridge and cleaning the toner transfer belt. I reinstalled the belt mechanism, and the toner drum units. Upon restarting the printer, I keep getting a "342" error code that says that the cyan toner unit has not been installed correctly. I have scrutinized every detail and cannot detect anything wrong with the installation of the toner unit. It is identical to the other toner units, and all the electrical contacts appear to be made when installed. I can't detect any mechanical reason for this. However, when restarting the machine each time, the message screen shows a question mark for the toner level. I installed a new toner cartridge, but the same question mark appears in the cyan toner level indicator. And after a few moments, the printer starts to do its prep cycle and then you can hear a very slight "clunk" and the the "342" code appears. Any clues as to what might be happening?

Problem might be with toner recycle coil which runs around the back of the belt unit. as the cyan unit is the furthest down the line if any blockages occur it can back up and lift the drum unit up. check the square opening of the recycle unit on the cyan end. Make sure you change waste toner unit when prompted or you might break a gear (big job) Karl Oki engineer

Where does oki c9500 waste toner box located

Your printer does not have a waste toner bottle. Waste toner is stored within the transfer belt. When full it will give you an error indicating its time for a new transfer belt.

Error 357

Hi - take the waste toner unit out and restart the printer. You'll now have a different error 'Check Waste Toner'. Open the front cover and put the waste toner back in. Let the printer go through the usual checks and hopefully all should be well.

In my experience this can be caused by not shutting the printer down fully before changing the waste toner.

What is error 357 waste tuner box is full okidata c9800

The printer always puts out a little more of each color toner than is actually needed in printing. The excess gets dumped into the waste toner bottle.

The replacement part number for this printer is 42869401 and should last 30,000 pages. Order one from an OKI service center and it will come with the replacement directions.

I hope this helps.

Fatal error 917 on an Oki C9600 printer. What does this mean and how can I resolve the problem. Many thanks James

A fatal error 917 means there is a problem regarding the belt **** sensor.

Usually it means the printer can't see the transfer belt rotating.

First thing to try is to remove and re install the transfer belt, if that does not work you should replace the transfer belt.

Oki 9800 230 fatal error

No reset need to fix fault then clears...check toner carts are secure on drums, all their contacts are clean,

Replace Toner Cartridges with Gen OKI new ones... are you using non oki product? Cause Toner carts, thats where I would start looking cause the error is the machine not receiving correct information from a little chip built into the toner cartridges to allow operation to begin.
