Question about OKI C5200n Laser Printer
we had the same problem and tried the above method, it didn't do the trick for us, but we went a bit further.
The place described with the little white plastic (under the blue lever) we took the little plastic plate of and cleaned the whole inside (the sensor is in there a, little hole). Put the plastic plate back and that was it. Hope if the above doesn't work, this will.

The sensor is on the toner/drum combination, where the blue lever resides. You will see a small window-like hole, which is supposed to be able to open and close while in use. Inside (if you gently slide it open with a pen with long "nose") you will see a small white plastic. "Jigle" that a little so that it will get unstack if it has stopped moving.
The actual solution is to change the toner. If you wish you can try the above aproach though, but it's just a short-term solution since you'll be doing it now and then.

SOURCE: Check toner cartridge
Yes to non OEM's and those of you who are using them they cause heap em troubles.
It can be the drum they sit on, or toner dust on contacts of drums, machine base, and toner cart sides , also machine has eyes that get dusty, on machine frame at every toner/drum.
Pull out a tonerlook at side of handle there is a rectangle cut out silver/or black inside this lines up with "eyes" in side of printer frame, clean em.
I have also found a lot of import oki toners going around causing grief too, but fix is always sucessfull by A new gen non import toner and drum and ensuring contacts are free from toner dust.
Another thing I find customers doing is not replacing toners when machine requests them ie at REPLACE TONER, instead they find that just openning and closing lid keeps them going, but these machines hold a complete toner in the drum unit too, so all they are doing is depleting that and when they do finally provide a toner it goes straight into filling up the drum and therefore shortly will display repalce toner again.
Signgirl - your using OEM's so I suspect drum/contacts/eyes what % are t drums at and are they oem too?
Wendy - dont recommend aftermarket/refills all the money you save will be paid to someone like me to come and fix the problems they end up causing.
OKiproblem - ever use aftermarket carts/drum, and what are % of consumables?

If you have a lexmark disregard this because their printers wont reconigze most refilled ink cartriges even if its done by proffesionals such as wal-mart est. (warranty also does not cover refils you'd need to buy a new one) what you need to do is take it and get it checked to see if they put the coulor ink in right if they did, then gently wipe the sensor on the printer, and the brass part of the ink cartridge above the ink part, put it back in and see if that works. And lastly go to your printers driver and see if you can reset the toner levels from there manually, if you cant try turning off the sensors or tricking it (google various methods) or buying new cartridge
