Oki c5300n drum reset??

Is there a way to reset the drum counter on an Oki c5300n. Rather than purchase individual new drums, I bought a c5100n printer to use for parts since all parts except the processor are interchangable. I found out later that the drums, fuser, and belt transfer have a built-in fuse for counter resets that is blown at the factory during testing. Oki Tech Support says the only way to reset is to buy a new Oki part that has never been in a printer.
Hi,
We have Xante CL30 HSE, which really a OKI 9500 that has been converted to take heavy stock and we have the reset procedure for the fuser, belt and drums, etc.
The drums still have about 8000 extra clicks in them when the printer tells you game over.

We recently bought an Xante Ilumina, which is really and OKI 9800 converted, but I dont have the procedure to reset the drums - can you possibly help?

Best wishes,
Bruce Gatland

Does anyone have any Idea on how to reset the C5500 drum? I know it's kinda new but, it seems like I am the only one with this printer.

This took a lot of button gymnastics to figure out, but I hope it is helpful to everyone with a C5500 (and it might work on the C5800 since it takes the same consumables, but not sure)...

To get the OKI C5500 to keep going (without opening and closing the lid constantly) in spite of toner cartridge & drum life messages:

1) Turn off printer.
2) Hold down "+" and "-" buttons at the same time, and keep them held down while turning printer back on... continue to hold until the word "OKIUSER" appears.
3) Use "-" button to scroll down to "FUSE KEEP MODE".
4) Press "Enter" button, hold for approx. 10 seconds, then release.
5) Press "Enter" button again, followed by rapid release and repress with hold for approx. 10 seconds.
6) Release "Enter" button, then press and let up one more time quickly.
7) You will see "INITIALING" and then "ONLINE" messages.

If you currently have an error message for toner cartridge life, the message will continue to be shown until after you've sent one print job, and then it will usually disappear for awhile. It will stay gone for longer if you have your printer set up so the toner sensor is turned off.

If you currently have a error message for drum life, it will continue to appear, but you will still be able to print.

Beware that you will have to keep a closer eye on print quality (since you are no longer relying on error message to tell you when your toner cartridges are in need of a replacement or refill, or the drum truly needs to be changed or refurbished). - Anonymous

Warning,

The xante cl30 hse is indeed a an oki c9500 engine but xante have put their own circuit board in. On that basis, using oki reset codes could lock you out of the machine entirely !

Secondly, a BIG VOTE of no confidence for xante as this machine is the worst performing machine I have ever encountered in my entire life. The xante drivers and firmware are shockingly poor beyond imagination and the print quality is virtually uncontrollable.

Run a job on heavy stock followed by a job on thin stock and the machine will destroy everything you print for several hours, regardless of correct colour / media settings.

This so called "heavy stock convertion" is simply a new board and drivers that slow the machine down and increase the heat of the fuser. Thats all and the rest of this machine is standard oki stock and will wear out a lot faster than the oki 9500.

I have spoken to Oki and they "unofficially" told me that Xante are pushing the engines way beyond their design limits. Lets face it, if the engines were designed to handle 330 gsm or even higher on the illumina - then Oki would be advertising heavy stock themselves !

Yes folks, I am a very unhappy Xante customer.

Totaly agree!! We paid nearly £400 for training and installation, it turned up 2 days early and was left in the car park on a pallet, it took four of us to lift it in. The so called 'training' took all day and was a farce. We have had ours a year and have now replaced it because of its unreliablility and high running costs. The figures quoted to us at the time of sale are way out. We travelled to Poole and had a row with the sole importers of this machine about its quality etc, and they certainly showed their true colours!! The machines are imported from The Netherlands and re-badged. I put it to the company that they were the equivalent of a 'Pimp my Ride' firm, suping up the fuser unit, probably adding spacers to the drum units so 330gsm board will go through. We have now installed a Konica Minolta C300 Bizhub - AMAZING!! All installed in an hour and setup within 10minutes. We pay a click charge of 6p per A3 side with as much coverage as you want and 0.006p per black and white!! It has a docu-feeder, A3 scanner you can scan to fax, e-mail, or JPeg or convert documents to PDF in the blink of an eye!! The click charge includes all toners, drums, transfer belt and servicing - (Plus the lease charge of course cost of machine just slightly more than the Xante) The Xante is way out of its depth and should be avoided at all costs that also goes for the Illumina - another re-badged Oki. - Anonymous

Hello Nik,

Would you let me know also how to re3set the 9800? We have Oki 9600 which is essentiallythe same machine. I see codes for other Oki models on this forum but not sure if they work with 9600/9800.

Thanks for your help.

I have a 9500 and the same problem, all 3 color cartridges go out at once. On average you can get a extra half life out of them and even more if you take them apart and recoat the roller. I heard of on person who refers to some part that could be replaced, but I would prefer a menu reset option. The key is to be able to reset that drum counter.

Try this procedure, don't know if it will work on your models.

Turn off the printer
Turn the printer on whilst holding down Menu button. (Display says user maintenance.)
Press the menu button three times. (The display will say drum counter reset.)
Press enter key. The system should go back on line, if not press on-line key.

Hi
You can just put a new fuse on the drum.
When you insert the drum the machine resets the counter and then blows the fuse. So if the unit is ok and you just wish to run it through another cycle just change the fuse.
This means you cannot just put a full unit in from another machine as it will not reset the counter until you put a new fuse in it as you found out.
This applies to drums transfer belt etc.
Note with regard to refilling the toner, some printers have 2 sections. 1 where you put the fresh toner and an after collection section in the same unit. You must empty the 2nd section if you refill it more than 2 or 3 times

The original toner cartgidge cannot be refilled. I did not know this when I refilled it. The cartridge worked great for another 100 pages until the internal counter said it was empty. The cartridge is full but it needs to be reset somehow. This is the original cartridge and there is not a flag on the end like the replacement cartridge. Does anybody know how I can use this again? Thanks

Reset the toner by holding it vertically (as it would sit in the printer). Rotate the wheel opposite the blue lockin until the white "indicator" disappears in the window (about 1 full turn). Power cycle the printer, this should reset.

Okidata 51-5400 series drums will lock around 16000 pages. When you hear "clicking", drum is locked. Buy fuses on ebay for 7.00 and install before drum locks.

Undo two small screws on top of drum unit (remove toner cartidge) and carefully pry off the cover. Set drum on its legs so you don't spill toner. There is a hidden hook on lower left of cover- pry open at slot just below serial number tag. Install fuse where you see two copper or brass connectors. (Starter drums do not have a fuse installed). Reassemble.

Refilling toner. Buy toner on ebay (40.00). To refill, remove toner cartridge and turn upside down. Turn the blue knob so the bottom slot opens. There is a little peg near blue knob that when pushed in, allows the blue knob to turn so the toner slot opens. Fill the cartridge with new toner and close the blue knob. The cartridge is only a tank and can be used many times. Two thirds of the cartridge from the blue knob side is the tank. The third to the left is the waste tank. The waste tank needs to be emptied after about two refills. Take a sharp knife and heat it to cut a hole in the top of the cartridge (2 inches or so from the end opposite the blue knob.)Use a vacuum or turn cartidge upside down and empty. Tape up the hole. You can also cut a hole in top 2 inches from blue knob to load toner.Tape with duct tape.

I do a lot of printing and can get about 8000 prints per reload. You will use less CYM toner than black. About 25000 prints on drums.

If you start up printer and simultaneously holding the two menu buttons (up/down) you will get a new set of menu options. There is no drum reset item. If anyone has info about the other menu items, please let us know.

My printer was making the loud clicking noise in a new drum assembly that I had recently replaced, so i followed the instructions here:

http://www.futuregraphicsllc.com/lit/articles/howard_C5400_0905.pdf

and on page 71, photo #8 you can see the sort of toner transport system, it moves along that thick belt and on the very left of the picture, just under where the red blow tube meets the can of air blower the guy in the picture is using there's a little white spec.. well that spec was covered by a plug of toner that was preventing the belt from moving, and causing the click sound of the "locked" image drum...

I chipped the toner cake out of there and cleaned out that area, then re-assembled the drum unit and the clicking stopped and the image drum could again turn freely.

In order to expose this area of the drum, it's not really necessary to dissasmble the rest of it, just slowly pry off the plastic plate covering the gears.. you see in photo 9 that there are a number of "pressure pins" they aren't glued or anything, they're just pressed in there and with patience the plate comes off fairly easily.. just be sure to remove it evenly, as in work it a milimeter at a time all the way around evenly to avoid breaking it. - Anonymous

I think I found a way to reset all consumables (drums, transfer belt, & fuser; excluding toner cartridges) using only the menu. Thus, NO FUSES will be required--sorry all you eBay entrepreneurs, you rode this one out long enough! I was experimenting today (bound and determined to minimize my costs), and the following worked to reset all four drums on my C5300n. Hopefully, the steps work for other models as well. So, here goes:

1) Power on printer while holding both the + & - buttons simultaneously; release when “OKIUSER” is displayed.
2) Press either the + or – button until “ENGINE DIAG MODE” is displayed; press the Enter button and “DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx” will be displayed.
3) Press and hold both the - & On-line buttons simultaneously until “ENG DIAG LEVEL2” is displayed.
4) Press either the + or – button until “CONSUMABLE COUNTER SET” is displayed, press the Enter button; you are now in the menu to set various consumables.
5) Press either the + or – buttons to scroll through the various consumables, at the desired consumable (ie. “K-ID UNIT …” for the Black Image Drum Unit) press the Enter button and the last digit of the count will start flashing.
6) Press the Cancel button to decrease the digit amount or press the On-line button to increase the digit amount; press the + or – buttons to move along individual digits in the count.
7) Once the count is at the level you desire (I reset mine to 50), press and hold the On-line, Cancel, & Back buttons (yes, it’s 3 of them this time) simultaneously until the “*” reappears next to the count; you have reset that consumable’s count to the number you specified.
8) Press the + or – buttons to move to the next consumable and repeat at step 5.
9) Once all consumable counts have been set to desired amounts that are below their end-of-life thresholds, you can use the Back, +, & - buttons to exit through the menus (reverse of steps 2 through 4) until “INITIALIZING” is displayed.
10) You're finished! Now log in to the web interface with your browser and check to see the remaining life of your consumables.

Good luck!

WOW!!!! GOD BLESS YOU!!!! I was at my wits end trying to find a low cost image drum supplier. Trust me , They don't exist. While surfing the net, I discoverd HP laser printers could be reset,and wondered if the same could apply to OKI printers. So I decided to surf a little more and "BINGO" I came across your forum, and Glenn has the answer. I have an OKI c5100 and this technique worked beautifully. Now I'm no tech guy, but I understood everything completely. I hope this forum can help everyone who's having the same problem I had.

Hello, do you know how to reset the consumables for the OKI mb260? - jadielmota
Were you able to call up any other Engine Diagnostic Levels? I came about my solution to the C5300n by adapting Oki's own knowledge base article where they gave instructions to correct a printer (C5100 & C5300n) being in Factory Mode as opposed to Shipping Mode. In those instructions, they specified a key combo to get to "ENG DIAG LEVEL3"--that being holding both the Enter & On-line buttons simultaneously until such appears on the display. I had read somewhere on the web that Level 2 was the menu I needed, so I simply started trying various key combinations and alas, the one I provided worked. From there, the hardest part was determining the correct key combination to apply (save) the new count.

There has to be a key combination that will work with the 5400! Keep trying, the menu has to be hidden somewhere within. Believe me, a couple of hours spent on this is well worth the $400 or so Oki would like you to spend on new drums.

Also, make sure you get “DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx” displayed in step 2 by pressing Enter at "ENGINE DIAG MODE". From there (and only there) was I able to press and hold the particular key combos to get into the individual diagnostic menu levels.

Sorry for the lengthy post. Keep us all updated.

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\%.

Hi everyone,

we have a 7350 and the buttons 0167 worked for displaying the hidden maintenance menu.

the internal structure of the menu is a bit different from the 9300 but i managed to find the right place where the nv-ram inital menu is located

Thanks a lot for the help

success:

Found the "ENG DIAG LEVEL4", which allows a hell lot of things:
* Individual counters set
* enable/disable checks
* more dirty stuff

1) - Power ON printer while holding both the 0, 1, 6, 7 buttons (see above posts) until "OkiUser" appears
2) go in the menu to "DIAGNOSTIC MODE XX.XX.XX Shipping"
3) Press 3 and 2 button until “ENG DIAG LEVEL4” is displayed;

4) now you have the options up/down with buttons 2 and 6, escape with button 4 and "change value" buttons with 3 and 7

5) changing values means blinking numbers

What remains and needed is, how to "save" these options. Well you've got to figure that out. I would guess a 3-button-combination...

any luck with the reset codes, I now have a ilumina and the consumables are killing me....

Found this on CNET/NY Times. I'm assuming it's a factory reset for everything.

Full user opinion
This printer tries to force you to buy expensive replacement toner cartridges and image drums well before their useful life is over (automatically shuts down after preset number of pages). To work around these limitations, you can do the following:

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\%. Of course, if you are out of toner, you do need to refill the cartridges, but you can find refill toner and instructions on ebay (a bit messy, but cheaper than new cartridges). The drums, etc. won't work forever, but they will work longer than the artificial limits imposed by Okidata.

Drum resets i've worked out, from some of the posts above, by resetting the Table 1 NV-RAM page.

however, i've noticed a problem with it and toner count resets... initially it worked fine, resetting the usage for each toner to 0\%, however it seems that after a while, this has stopped working, resetting only some of the toner counts, and putting the others at 95-100\%.

i've since found a way to turn off the toner counter all together, so that there is no warnings for 'low toner' and it wont stop and tell you to replace the toner when it is empty, however this also allows us to completely use the toner untill empty.

How to turn off toner page counting on the OKI C5400n


1) Turn off printer.
2) Turn on printer, while holding the + and - buttons.
3) The LCD Shows 'OKI User', Scroll to "Engine Diag Mode", hit enter. The display shows "Diag Mode 01.02.02 S-Mode"
4) Scroll to Eng Param Set 2, Hit Enter.
5) Scroll to Toner Sensor(it may be the first one), hit enter, Change setting to "Disable"
6) To set the "Disable" setting you need to press the ONLINE, CANCEL and - Buttons at the same time, pressing ONLINE first.
7) Press the Back Button.
8) Turn off the Printer, Leave for 10 seconds, and Turn back on, as normal.



No more toner warnings... :)



Incidentally, as far as drum life goes, i've found close to a 100\% increase by resetting Table 1 in the NV-RAM... certainly saves me a lot of money, considering we used to go through atleast 1, if not 2-3 a month.


Thanks for everyone's helpful posts, i hope mine comes in useful for others too :)

It worked perfect with the C5100n that I managed to buy thru eBay.

Again: thank's a lot, you're the man !

Wow... Just wow.....

I dont have all the menus here.. but from what i've worked out, i'm sure that you can all figure what to do in certain other menus...

ok.. here goes :D


C7200 maintenance Menu's


1) Turn on Printer while holding the 1 & 2 buttons.

2) Using button #1 scroll down untill you see "Diagnostic Mode 00.22.00", then hold down buttons 2 & 3.

3) You now have "Engine Diag Mode Level 4" showing on the display.

4) Use Buttons 1 & 5 to scroll between menu's. Scroll down to "Counter Set".

5) Use Buttons 2 & 6 to scroll between menu items. Use buttons 3 & 7 to change the value you wish to alter.

6) The Flashing number is the value you have highlighted. Use Buttons 2 & 6 to change that value.

7) When you have made any changes you need to, hold down buttons 1, 3, and 5. The screen will flash 3 times, then an * will appear at the end of the screen. The Value has been set.

8) The "ID" unit appears to be the drums, setting these values changes the drum usage according to the printer.
The Toner counts are in percentages, and can be changed from 000\% to 999\%, where 0\% is no use, and 100\% is totally used.
The "Dot Count"s set how many times each colour has been used, in the life of that toner(?).
The "Total Dot Count" is the same as the above, but for the entire life of the printer.
The "Replace" values for belt, fuser, drums, and toners show how many times each of those units have been replaced.
The Printer life limit seems like an odd one... its there to make you replace the printer after x(600000) number of prints?
There are also life limits for toners, drums, fuser units, belts etc, which can be changed from the default values.
The (cmyk) "ID Unit" shows how many pages have been printed that include that colour since that item has been installed.
The (cnyk) toner percentages can be changed here manually, but is no use if you've turned off toner counting in the below step.

9) To turn off Toner counting:

After getting into Eng Diag level 4, scroll down to "Engine Parameter Set 2".

Use the 2 & 6 buttons to scroll between options. Scroll to "Toner Sensor".

By Default, this is "Enable".

Change the values by using the 3 & 7 buttons. When you've changed the value to "Disable" press both the 3 & 7 buttons together, and the * will appear, showing that you've set the value correctly.

You can also apply the above change to the "ID Unit"s aswell, being the image drums, to stop any counting of the drum units, allowing them to be used untill image quality suffers.

The above change can also be made to the "Belt Unit" and i'm guessing Fuser unit aswell.








Hope this helps a few of you :)

Hi Caelum,
We have 3 oki 7200. Ive tried your sequence dozens of times, it does not work ?
When I press buttons 1 & 2 together then swith the printer on, nothing happens ?
Any ideas ?
Kind regards

There is only a ONE difference on the first step and an extra bit of information between step 1 and step 2 between accessing the Maintenance Menus of the C7400 and the C7200 Printers as explained earlier:

STEPS FOR THE OKIDATA C7400 PRINTERS:

1) PRESS AND HOLD BUTTONS 1 + 5 AND TURN ON THE PRINTER (WHILE CONTINUING TO HOLD THE BUTTONS).
(For Oki C7200 Printers you press and hold buttons 0 + 1 + 6 + 7).

**(addition information) "MAINTENANCE MENU" will appear on the screen within a few seconds. Then about 5 seconds later, "OKIUSER" will appear.

***THE REST OF THE STEPS ARE THE SAME FOR BOTH C7400 AND C7200 SERIES PRINTERS...

2. Press button 0 several times until "DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx" shows.

3. Hold buttons 2 + 3 until "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 4" shows.

4. Press button 1 to scroll to "COUNTER SET".

5. Press button 2 to scroll through menu items (button 6 scrolls backwards)

6. To alter the value of an item, first press button 3 to select the digit to be altered. The selected digit will slowly flash. (Button 3 moves to the right through the digits. Button 7 takes you to the left.)

7. Then press button 2 to increase the value of the selected digit. Press button 6 to decrease the value.

8. When the changes have been made hold buttons 1 + 3 + 5. The screen will flash three times and then an * will appear on the right of the screen. The new value is set.

9. To leave the counter set menus, turn the printer off.

---> I thought that I would add some help for the next guy who also has a C7400 printer.

------> THANKS A MILLION!!! FOR EVERYONE WHO TAKES THE TIME TO HELP OTHERS IN THESE FORUMS!!

A C3200N here...

I never wanted to do the NVRAM complete reset because I was scared of losing the network MAC address as mention somewhere else on this forum. And basically controlling the consumable level independently was interesting… My c3200n printer was bought last month (09/2006), guessing here that the bios may be different depending on release date (this walkthrough might not work for everyone).

Sooooo, after much button pressing, restarts and coffees.. here it is:

Get to the standard "Diagnostic mode" as describe on this thread:

1) Turn off printer.

2) Turn on printer, while holding the + and - buttons.

3) The LCD Shows "OKI User", Scroll to "Engine Diag Mode", press "enter".

The display shows "Diag Mode 01.02.02 S-Mode" as mention multiple times on this thread.

At this point you should wait for the initialization cycle to complete. I mean for all the motors and gears to have finished their noises and cycles – otherwise you will end up with a LCD switching between two different info screens - not a big deal but still annoying.

Now we want to go in "regist mode" by:

1) Pressing the "Online", "Cancel", "Enter", "-" and "Back" AT THE SAME TIME (not in any sequence – at the same time). Yes! That is 5 buttons.

2) After within two seconds the LCD menu will show "READY". If it doesn’t, release button and repress buttons again.

3) The buttons release sequence is important. So, read this before letting go your five fingers: Release the "Enter" button first and THEN the four others. LCD is still showing "READY".

4) Press the "Online" and "Cancel" button at the same time BRIEFLY. Don’t wait before pressing them after the five fingers sequence otherwise you will miss your time slot.

You can always switch back from the "READY" to the "Diag Mode 01.02.02 S-Mode" menu by pressing the five buttons again.

Don’t laugh. I know it seems a lot of gymnastic. Well I guess they didn’t want the user to find that one easily.

Now you see "Eng Diag Level 2"

Taking from someone else on this thread (with some modifications for the c3200n):

Press either the + or – button until "CONSUMABLE COUNTER SET" is displayed, press the Enter button; you are now in the menu to set various consumables.

1) Press either the + or – buttons to scroll through the various consumables, at the desired consumable (ie. "K-ID UNIT …" for the Black Image Drum Unit, "C-Toner" for cyan toner, etc.), press the Enter button and the last digit of the count will start flashing.

2) Press the Cancel button to decrease the digit amount or press the On-line button to increase the digit amount; press the + or – buttons to move along individual digits in the count. Note that it will not show the remaining but the usage (100\% means it is empty).

7) Once the count is at the level you desire, press and hold the On-line, Cancel simultaneously until the numbers stop flashing; you have reset that consumable’s count to the number you specified. Note that you may end up with a different value then the one that was entered when saving. The printer engine is probably jumping to the nearest registered/acceptable value. If someone find a way to save the exact value, let us know.

8) Press the + or – buttons to move to the next consumable and repeat at step 5.

9) Once all consumable counts have been set to desired amounts that are below their end-of-life thresholds, you can use the Back, +, & - buttons to exit through the menus (reverse of steps 2 through 4) until "INITIALIZING" is displayed. Or turn printer off and on.

10) You're finished! Now log in to the web interface with your browser and check to see the remaining life of your consumables.

There is another way to get to the "Eng Diag Level 2" menu – I did it at one point but wasn’t able to reproduce. But this method worked for me even if you may need some practice. You can also get to level 3 and level 4 after the release of the five fingers step by pressing something else then the "online" and "cancel".

Good luck.
Nono

Works fine on my two C5200N printers with one modification:-
Entry to "regist mode" ... when all five buttons depressed, release "On Line" first followed by remaining four. Works every time when you get used to quick response required after the four buttons are released. I use one C5200N with only OKI consumables. On other I use compatible toners - some are not and destroy the drum very quickly (personal experience). Others are very good and produce similar results to originals. - Anonymous
To enter "ENG DIAG LEVEL2" on C5250 the release seqence is important:

The display shows "Diag Mode 01.02.02 S-Mode" as mention multiple times on this thread.
1) Pressing the "Online", "Cancel", "Enter", "-" and "Back" AT THE SAME TIME
2) After within two seconds the LCD menu will show "READY". If it doesn’t, release button and repress buttons again.

3) The buttons release sequence is important. So, read this before letting go your five fingers: Release the "Enter" button first and THEN the four others. LCD is still showing "READY".

#This is wrong for C5250. The release sequence is important and must #be:
#"ENTER", "BACK", "-" , "Cancel", "Online".
#Now, you have all time the world to continue with step4.

4) Press the "Online" and "Cancel" button at the same time
to enter "ENG DIAG LEVEL2" - unknown
This worked for the C5200N. Set exact Remaining Toner Values.

The Cosumable Counter reset for each toner can be reset to original / actual values (if you know what they are or printed a status page) by performing the following:
Using the output from the status, perform the following calculation, (100-(\%remain))=\%used, then (\%used/4)=\%Input Value
Round Down to give you more remaining toner, UP for less.

Enter the printer into the "CONSUMABLE COUNTER SET" mode, then move to the proper toner to modify i.e "K-Toner Value",
Press enter to select this value to change, use ONLINE to increase digit value, CANCEL to decrease digit value, "-" to change selected digit (or was it BACK), Input the calculated \%Input Value from above. Press and HOLD "CANCEL and ONLINE" until digits stop flashing, the new value will be stored.

Now, How do I modify the values for DRUM LIFE, FUSER LIFE and BELT LIFE??? I reset them to 100\% remaining from a previous reset, but would like to get the proper values set.

hi, i tried the procedure of nono (date 10/19/06) on my c3200n,
but i have a "diag mode 01.10.02 S-mode".
When i do the 5 buttons press i have got always the message
"black drum near life",not the ready msg.
Any hint is welcom. Thanks

Already many thanks for the reply's, i ordered a new k-drum
and shall replace it when needed.
The question is/was, is there anyone with a c3200n diag mode level "diag mode 01.10.02 S-mode" who was able to do
the procedure (date 10/19/06) from nono?

Finaly it works, when your printer gives already f.e: a toner
low msg, then after the 5 button press you get the msg "toner low" instead of the "ready msg" at that time do step 4
of the procedure of Nono (press Online and Cancel at the same time) - Edgard
OKI C3200N, firmware 01.10.02 (or at least it tells me "01.10.02 S-Mode") - and network is ok after this :-)

Nono's description works perfectly, please note though, that the printer do not show "READY" in step 2. Instead it will cyckle through the toner status' - just press ENTER anyway. It works!

Thanks to Nono!

Wondering if this could possible be done using the webinterface too? (probably not)

Nice work Nono and others. This is great stuff...especially when you know the manuf. is working you for every penny. I love the c3200n printer quality etc. but was very fed up with the shutdowns for "Factory Empty" settings versus using every last drop.

Much appreciated. But, I do recommend this printer it puts out very nice copy.

i've used this sequence successfully to reset the drum count on a C5400

just follow the instruction as per nono post above
C3200n Consumable Counter Set by Nono (10/19/06 12:46 PM)

one thing i think is happening is that different firmware revisions are changing the key sequences, hence some of them working sometimes and not others

i'm running 1.03.03 and the above worked .......

so take note of the "Diag mode nn.nn.nn S-mode" as i think it is more significant than the model in some instances

Can you help with the reset codes for the Xante CL30HSE? I didn't know such things existed! Our black drum is complaining! Have you managed to source cheaper toner cartridges? I have been trying the toner refill option but with dire consequences - background tinting, streaks etc. I think the make up the Xante toner is different to that of the Oki machines perhaps to take the extra heat of the fuser

you can't reset the toner it has a chip in it that can't reverse
but you can refill before the chip dies, It will keep the toner alive as long as you refill before it says its empty.
I have reffiled my toners 3 times already. after a refill the display says only 10\% left but will print untill you run out.

Just keep some on hand and refill every day or so

This is not rebuild drumunit, only the drum roll. Which is great! Don´t change more than necessary.

Do anyone know any other company that sell drum rolls for Oki like this?

Hi Simply Dan.

According to a user in another forum the reset shown below (which I use on my C7500) will also work for the C9500 printers as well.

OKI think the main board is faulty??? Typical lazy help...

Cheers, Neale (Bay of Plenty, New Zealand).


Resetting consumables for OKI C7500 printer (and other C7000 series).

1. Hold buttons 0 + 1 + 6 + 7 on startup.

2. Press button 0 several times until "DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx" shows.

3. Hold buttons 2 + 3 until "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 4" shows.

4. Press button 1 to scroll to "COUNTER SET".

5. Press button 2 to scroll through menu items (button 6 scrolls backwards)

6. To alter the value of an item, first press button 3 to select the digit to be altered. The selected digit will slowly flash. (Button 3 moves to the right through the digits. Button 7 takes you to the left.)

7. Then press button 2 to increase the value of the selected digit. Press button 6 to decrease the value.

8. When the changes have been made hold buttons 1 + 3 + 5. The screen will flash three times and then an * will appear on the right of the screen. The new value is set.

9. To leave the counter set menus, turn the printer off.

NOTES:
An "ID" unit is an imaging drum. The life used (shown as pages) doesn't need to be changed. Instead you change the "life limit" to get more use out of the drum. The default figure is 20,000 pages. If you are careful with your drums and keep light away from them they should easily last to 40,000 pages and beyond

Each colour toner counter shows life as percentage used. So a toner showing 30\% has used up 30\% of its toner. 100\% would indicate a near empty toner. This is the reverse of the toner life shown from the "usage menu" when the printer is in normal operation, which shows the toners as a percentage life remaining.

The toner life limit default is set at 100\%. Another option to use, instead of changing each toner's percentage life used (i.e. cranking back from 97\% down to 87\%), would be to increase the toner life limit above 100\%. For example, increasing it up to 110\%. In practice the OKI printers seem to fairly accurately record the amount of toner used, so an extra 10\% might be all you get out of a toner. What feedback can other people offer on how much extra life they get?

If you are swapping over toners or drums from another secondhand printer into your printer, it will not know they are "new" and your printer will still show the existing life values for the old units. If you know the life used in these "new" units you can go into the printer's counter set menu and reset the values so they are more accurate.

Hey, just like to say thanks for the help. It worked great. I've reset the magenta toner to a different level, and will soon see if starts to run out like it normally should.
Appreciate the help.

Hi,

I followed the instructions exactly. #'s 1-3 worked BUT there is no “NV-RAM INITIAL” in the menu. Anyone have any ideas what's going on?

Resetting consumables for OKI C7500 printer (and other C7000 series and C9000 series).

1. Hold buttons 0 + 1 + 6 + 7 on startup.

2. Press button 0 several times until "DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx" shows.

3. Hold buttons 2 + 3 until "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 4" shows.

4. Press button 1 to scroll to "COUNTER SET".

5. Press button 2 to scroll through menu items. (Button 6 scrolls backwards)

6. To alter the value of an item, first press button 3 to select the digit to be altered. The selected digit will slowly flash. (Button 3 moves to the right through the digits. Button 7 takes you to the left.)

7. Then press button 2 to increase the value of the selected digit. Press button 6 to decrease the value.

8. When the changes have been made, hold buttons 1 + 3 + 5 together. The screen will flash three times and then an * will appear on the right of the screen. The new value is set.

9. To leave the counter set menus, turn the printer off.

NOTES:
An "ID" unit is an imaging drum. The life used (shown as pages) doesn't need to be changed. Instead you change the "life limit" to get more use out of the drum. The default figure is 20,000 pages. If you are careful with your drums and keep light away from them they should easily last to 40,000 pages and beyond

Each colour toner counter shows life as percentage used. A toner showing 30\% has used up 30\% of its toner. 100\% indicates a near empty toner. The printer only estimates the amount of toner used, so an “empty” toner will still have a reasonable amount of toner inside. I suggest resetting a 100\% (empty) toner back down to 90\% rather than zero, and then write the reset details in felt-tip marker on the toner cartridge. You’ll learn how much extra life can be gained from the toners.

An important note: The toner life shown in Diagnostic Mode is the opposite of what is shown in the Usage Menu when the printer is in normal operation. The usage menu shows the toners as a percentage life remaining, so 100\% means a full toner.

Please note that anytime you turn the printer off, you will have to go through the whole process again when you turn it back on. It doesn't take long though, and will quickly become habit whenever turning on your printer for the day!

Sounds like you people know your stuff, so rather than throwing out my printer, which has very little use, though I would ask for diagnosis here.

Just today my printer started making what sounds like a grinding or gear skipping noise on warm up and printing. So far, it still works.

Your expertise would be appreciated.

My OKI C5500 does the same thing when the gears on a drum go bad. To figure out which one is causing the problem...

1. Take out all the drums
2. Put them back in one at a time, closing the lid so it will go to warm-up between each color
3. If you hear the clicking/grinding noise after placing in a color, there's the culprit!

If drum was bought recently, you may be able to get whoever you bought it from to exchange it. If not, it's probably just worn out, so time for a new one. - Anonymous

Hello,
we have a OKI 5900 printer.

I do this:

1) Turn off printer.
2) Hold down "+" and "-" buttons at the same time, and keep them held down while turning printer back on... continue to hold until the word "OKIUSER" appears.
3) Use "-" button to scroll down to "FUSE KEEP MODE".
4) Press "Enter" button, hold for approx. 10 seconds, then release.
5) Press "Enter" button again, followed by rapid release and repress with hold for approx. 10 seconds.
6) Release "Enter" button, then press and let up one more time quickly.
7) You will see "INITIALING" and then "ONLINE" messages.

Now we can print a view sites, but then he´s got the error message:

REPLACE IMAGE DRUM ^^.


What can i do please helpl.

Hi Rebecca,

If you have replace the fuse in the drum unit or installed a new or compatible drum unit and it is not resetting, then you can try the following procedure. However, if your drum unit indicates replacment needed, then you must install a new fuse in the drum. Also, your images will start to become "light" when the OPC drum in the unit becomes worn and you should replace. We do sell these remanufactured units but first try the following:

Counter is not Reset after Replacing a Consumable
Symptom: Consumable fuses are not being blown after repeat replacements. Product(s): Okidata C5100, C5300NCause: Printer may be in Factory Mode as opposed to Shipping Mode. Note: If unit is found to be in shipping mode (correct default setting), then the problem could be with the consumable itself, or the unit.

Resolution: 1) Power on printer while holding both the + & - buttons simultaneously; release when "Okiuser" is displayed.

2) Press + or - until "Engine Diag" Mode is displayed; press Enter and Diagnostic Mode xx.xx.xx will be displayed

3) Press and hold both Enter & On-line simultaneously until Eng Diag Level3 is displayed

4) Press + or - until Local Parameter Set is displayed; release and press Enter

5) Press + or - until it displays Factory Mode; if it displays Factory Mode Twice with an asterisk next to one then it is in Factory Mode; Press + or - until it displays Factory Mode & Shipping Mode on the display; then press and hold On-line & Cancel simultaneously; when it stops blinking an asterisk should be displayed next to Shipping Mode, which becomes the default mode.

6) Power printer off then on to complete the procedure. Additional Info:If changing to shipping mode does not resolve the problem of resetting the counter you probably need to just replace the drum unit. Let me know if I can help further.

I can confirm these instructions work on a C5200N when getting the dreaded "C DRUM LIFE", "M DRUM LIFE", "Y DRUM LIFE" or "K DRUM LIFE". I've revised them a bit and omitted unnecessary information. Enjoy!

1) Power ON printer while holding + and - buttons until the “OKIUSER” message appears on the LCD.
2) Press + or – button until “ENGINE DIAG MODE” is displayed.
3) Press "ENTER" and LCD will be display "DIAGNOSTIC MODE XX.XX.XX S-MODE".
4) Press + or – button until “NV-RAM INITIAL” is displayed.
5) Press "ENTER" again.
6) "TABLE 1" message will be displayed on the LCD.
7) Press and HOLD "ENTER" until the "EXECUTING RESET" message appears (the "NV-RAM INITIAL" message will blink while you hold "ENTER").
8) Power OFF printer, wait ~10 seconds, and power ON again...

Note: This procedure will reset the TONER, DRUM, FUSER and BELT! When the procedure is done, the printer's LCD should go back to displaying "ONLINE" only. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at spameaterspameater A_T yahoo D_O_T C_O_M!

How to enter admibn menu

Method to reset back to default value: The default shipping language for the printer is English. It is possible to reset the language back to English from another chosen language by using the "ADMIN MENU" or by running the "Operator Panel Language Utility" again. To reset the language without using the language setup utility the procedure is as follows:

1. Power on the printer holding down the 'Enter' key until "ADMIN MENU" appears on the LCD display, release the 'Enter' key and then press 'Enter' again.

2. Enter the printer's administrator password followed by 'Enter' (default password is "aaaa"), "OP MENU" will be displayed.

3. Press the '+' key three times or until "LANGUAGE MENU" is displayed and press 'Enter'.

4. The display will show "LANG INITIALIZE EXECUTE", press 'Enter'.

5. When asked "ARE YOU SURE?" press the 'Enter' key.

The printer will now restart in English and "ON LINE" will be displayed when it is ready to print

Hi again I just found this, dont know if its applicable to C5300 etc.

How do I reset the fuser life message?
After replacing the fuser in the B6200/B6300 it may be possible to clear the warning message manually, this operation can be performed as follows:

With the power on and the printer indicating "Ready to Print", press the SELECT button and DOWN button at the same time. "Reset Counter Fuser U4" should be displayed.
Press the -> button. Display should now read "Fuser U4 Use SEL to Reset."
Press the SELECT key.

I hve been to a C9300 machine today & sucessfull reset all the consumables using the following.

Oki C9300 series consumables reset procedure

Familiarise yourself with the control panel layout first (see below then follow below).

1, Power on machine whilst holding down 0 1 6 7 keys together, Maintenance Menu is displayed then Oki User.

2, Press 0 until Engine Diag 00.11.02 Shipping is displayed (the numbers may be different)


3, Scroll through the menu using the 1 or 5 keys until N V Ram is displayed

4, Press 6 key until Table 1 is displayed

5, Press & hold 3 key for approx 6 seconds during witch time the display flashes then displays Executing

6, Power the machine off then on again, print out menu map if required & you will note all consumables are reset to 99\%


Control Panel Lay Out

(Menu= 0) (Item + = 1) (Value + = 2) (Select = 3)



(On Line = 4) (Item - = 5) (Value - = 6) (Cancel = 7)

This should work no problem & im sure it is the same for most Oki colour printers you may have to play with the buttons if you dont have numbers on them to figure out what each one does.

Good luck

Hello, do you know how to reset the consumables for the OKI MB260? - jadielmota
Hello, do you know how to reset the consumables for the OKI mb260? - jadielmota
Hi. the key sequence for individually resetting consumables in the C7000 series printers should also work for the C9000 series.

Last year I reset the imaging drum life limits from the standard 20,000 pages to 40,000 pages. Yesterday I had to replace my black drum at 41650 pages. So that doubled the lifetime of the imaging drum.

It had recently started producing faint vertical lines in the images, but there was no horizontal banding at all. Apart from the lines the images were very crisp. I have a suspicion that running out of toner and continuing to print pages may damage the drums. You have to watch the printer like a hawk when printing with reset toner cartridges.

Does anyone know if low toner damages drums?

Cheers, Neale.


KEY SEQUENCE:
Resetting consumables for OKI C7500 printer (and some other C7000 series and C9000 series).

1. Hold buttons 0 + 1 + 6 + 7 on startup ("menu" + "item+" + "value-" + "cancel" buttons). For C7400 printer press 1 + 5 on startup. Other models may have another button sequence.

2. Press button 0 several times until "DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx" shows.

3. Hold buttons 2 + 3 until "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 4" shows.

4. Press button 1 to scroll to "COUNTER SET".

5. Press button 2 to scroll through menu items. (Button 6 scrolls backwards)

6. To alter the value of an item, first press button 3 to select the digit to be altered. The selected digit will slowly flash. (Button 3 moves to the right through the digits. Button 7 takes you to the left.)

7. Then press button 2 to increase the value of the selected digit. Press button 6 to decrease the value.

8. When the changes have been made, hold buttons 1 + 3 + 5 together. The screen will flash three times and then an * will appear on the right of the screen. The new value is set.

9. To leave the counter set menus, turn the printer off.

NOTES:
An "ID" unit is an imaging drum. The life used (shown as pages) doesn't need to be changed. Instead you change the "life limit" to get more use out of the drum. The default figure is 20,000 pages. If you are careful with your drums and keep light away from them they should easily last to 40,000 pages and beyond. When replacing toners or clearing jambs, have the lid open for the minimum time possible. And NEVER allow direct sunlight onto the printer.

In Diagnostic Mode the toner counter shows the life as a percentage used. A toner showing 30\% has used up 30\% of its toner, and 100\% shows 100\% of the toner is used (a near empty toner). But the printer only estimates the amount of toner used, so an “empty” toner will still have a reasonable amount of toner inside. I suggest re-setting a 100\% (empty) toner back down to 90\% (rather than zero), and then writing the reset details in felt-tip marker on the toner cartridge. You’ll learn how much extra life can be gained from the toners, and have some idea of when the toner will actually run out. It will also remind you weeks later that you have already reset the toner.

Another way of getting more life is to remove the toner and give it some taps on the side. Any toner hung up on the sides of the cartridge will drop down into the bottom. It also spreads the toner evenly along the cartridge, as the toner tends to run out on one part of a page first. Hold a finger over the stirrer port on the left of the cartridge to stop toner dropping on you clothing.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: The toner life shown in Diagnostic Mode is opposite to that shown in the Usage Menu when the printer is in normal operation. The usage menu shows the toners as a percentage life remaining, so 100\% means a full toner. In Diagnostic mode 100\% means an empty toner. Very confusing....

1)Power ON printer while holding both the + & - buttons until “OKIUSER” message apear in LCD.
2) Press + or – button until “ENGINE DIAG MODE” is displayed;
3) Press "ENTER", will be displayed "DIAGNOSTIC MODE XX.XX.XX S-MODE"
4) Press + or – button until “TONER SENSOR” is displayed
5) Press "ENTER"
6) Press + or - button to change from ENABLE* to DISABLE

To SAVE the DISABLE setting...

Hold "ENTER", "CANCEL" and "ONLINE" all at the same time. That puts a "*" next to DISABLE and saves it.

This fixes the following problems:

1) The random "543:K Toner Sensor Error" message on the C5500n
2) Allows you to refill toner without buying replacement chips for the tonor sensor

From way up the top...this worked for us
"I think I found a way to reset all consumables (drums, transfer belt, & fuser; excluding toner cartridges) using only the menu. Thus, NO FUSES will be required--sorry all you eBay entrepreneurs, you rode this one out long enough! I was experimenting today (bound and determined to minimize my costs), and the following worked to reset all four drums on my C5300n. Hopefully, the steps work for other models as well. So, here goes:

1) Power on printer while holding both the + & - buttons simultaneously; release when “OKIUSER” is displayed.
2) Press either the + or – button until “ENGINE DIAG MODE” is displayed; press the Enter button and “DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx” will be displayed.
3) Press and hold both the - & On-line buttons simultaneously until “ENG DIAG LEVEL2” is displayed.
4) Press either the + or – button until “CONSUMABLE COUNTER SET” is displayed, press the Enter button; you are now in the menu to set various consumables.
5) Press either the + or – buttons to scroll through the various consumables, at the desired consumable (ie. “K-ID UNIT …” for the Black Image Drum Unit) press the Enter button and the last digit of the count will start flashing.
6) Press the Cancel button to decrease the digit amount or press the On-line button to increase the digit amount; press the + or – buttons to move along individual digits in the count.
7) Once the count is at the level you desire (I reset mine to 50), press and hold the On-line, Cancel, & Back buttons (yes, it’s 3 of them this time) simultaneously until the “*” reappears next to the count; you have reset that consumable’s count to the number you specified.
8) Press the + or – buttons to move to the next consumable and repeat at step 5.
9) Once all consumable counts have been set to desired amounts that are below their end-of-life thresholds, you can use the Back, +, & - buttons to exit through the menus (reverse of steps 2 through 4) until “INITIALIZING” is displayed.
10) You're finished! Now log in to the web interface with your browser and check to see the remaining life of your consumables.

Good luck!

This is the one we have been looking for According to Okidata there is no reset code for the fuser. Reason they give is that 99\% of the time you get this error, it's indicative of fuser AND Main circuit board failure. Hence no reset. Since circuit board is not serviceable.
Call them up and tell them your problem. Depending on the "age" of your printer, they will offer you some kind on exchange at little or no cost. In other words they will swap out a bare bones printer, no toner cartridges etc. with a new fuser for your broken one.
Number to call is 1-800-654-3282 I got myself a refurbished printer, overnight delivery at no cost.

OK, FOR EVERYONE TRYING TO DO A TONER SENSOR RESET ON A C5300, HERE IS A STEP BY STEP WAY TO DO IT. {{YOU CAN REALLY MESS UP THINGS IN HERE, BE CAREFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!}}

AT Any point you need out, don't just turn off the printer, use the back button and the menu minus(-) key to escape back to the message "initializing", then turn off the printer!

1 Just like all other instructions, get into the special menu by holding down the menu+ and menu- keys while turning the unit on.
2 When you see the message "OKIUSER" CAREFULLY release both buttons at the same time.
3 Use the menu- or the menu+ to get to "ENGINE DIAG MODE".
4 Press enter. DIAGNOSTIC MODE XX.XX.XX will appear.
5 Now press both the online and the back buttons, and "ENG DIAG LEVEL 4" will be displayed.
6 Press enter.
7 Press menu+ twice to "ENGINE PARAMETER SET 2"
8 Press enter.
9 Press menu+ twice to get to "TONER SENSOR ENABLE" (with a * in the lower right hand of the display window.
10 Press enter and the word "ENABLE" will begin to blink, indicating it can be changed.
11 Press menu+ and the word will change to "DISABLE", still blinking. This is a toggle, make sure to not hit the button twice.
12 This is the important step: simultaneously press the online, cancel, and back buttons, and let them all go simultaneously. this sets your selection.
13 There are other things that can be done here in the same fashion, but that is out of the scope of this document.
14 Use the "BACK" and the "MENU-" keys to back out all the way to the message "INITIALIZING", then power off, wait 10 seconds, and power back on.

Hopefully this will help some of you!

Hallo Hector,
Can you please send me a copy of the muwin.exe file. I live in Germany. Please send it to [email protected]
Thank you in advance.
Greetings Catharina van Ameijde - tvameijde
I know the muwin.exe works well to reset the okidata printers consumibles before the printers are locked, but you have to do this reset when you refill the cartridges toner before the printer say low toner cartridge, other ways muwin.exe don't help you at all, this works well to reset all other consumibles on your printer too, I have a C6100 okidata printer and this program save me a lot money because has 4 diferent color cartridges toner, each one cost brand new originals $155.00 dollars plus shiping etc, etc. All total amount probably $700.00 to $750.00.
I just got all set refill in great glosy quality for only $150.00 dollars no microchip needed because muwin.exe do the rest, this program works for different models too.
you need the microchip "ONLY" if your printer become locked saying low toner or "belt life warning", all what you need to do it is to act before the problem to really save money, good luck guys

The toner sensor error on the c3400 can be cleared by removing the obstruction on the drum.

all the pictures online are useless, so let me try to explain.

if you remove the drum from the printer the right side has a cut out window, and sometimes a little black piece of plastic on the inside slides down and blocks it. just take a paper clip or something and push the piece of plastic back up out of the way. you should be able to see a green circuit through the window.

that's it. just put the drum with toner back in printer and you should be all set.

it seems that if the toner sensor can not be read, the system will just stop, it will not continue to check everything else.

hope this helps.

I have 2 print jobs in the queue of my OKI 5500n that I can't cancel or delete. I stays locked in "deleting" mode, and I cannot print to the printer from anywhere on the network. I have tried cancelling from all desktops including the one that sent the print job. How do I get these jobs out of thw queue and free up the printer?
by unknown on Oct 8, 2009 at 12:12pm Add comment
on the PC that sent the job what port is the printer connected to?

Check that it is not a shared printer on someone elses PC. If it is then it is that PC's spool queue you need to clear.

If it is networked via an IP port directly to the OKI then it is the machine that sent the job that needs to clear the print spooler queue

I have a xante cl30 HSE (oki c9500). The original transfer belt broke and was replaced with a brand new OEM part. New belt unit apparently did not auto reset the machine. Almost immediately I got "Belt Near Life" message. After approximately 1500 prints got "Belt Life 356: Replace Transfer Belt" message and machine is totally disabled.
Using codes from this post works great to reset all counts to 0\%, but I still have this transfer belt thing going on.
Anybody have a clue?
Thanks!

My mistake was probably grabbing the box of old paper from the bottom of the filing cabinet. Soon after the printer reached these sheets, the edges began smearing the printer locked up. I now have a "Fuser Jam 2" "Fuser Lock Error" error in maintenance mode. Reading through the comments here, it sounds like I might have a chance to clean it before buying a new one. Can anyone step me through this?

Thank you,

I try to reset the drum cunter of max OKI 5950dn.
I follow this points:

1) Power on printer while holding both the + & - buttons simultaneously; release when “OKIUSER” is displayed.
2) Press either the + or – button until “ENGINE DIAG MODE” is displayed; press the Enter button and “DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx” will be displayed.
3) Press and hold both the - & On-line buttons simultaneously until “ENG DIAG LEVEL2” is displayed.

Every thing works. But when I press the - and the Online Buttons when DIAGNOSTIC MODE is displayed the menue showes no reaktion.
Are there any other key-combinations?

by sdqwqw on Jan 27, 2010 at 12:12pm Add comment
Hi. I'm not familiar with the c5300, but your best bet is to find the micro-switch which detects the lid is open and trouble-shoot that. OKI often use opto-coupler switches: sometimes a squirt of compressed air into the opto-coupler sensor will remove toner which may have lodged inside and prevented it working properly. Another trick is to disconnect and then reconnect the switch. I had a sensor switch acting up inside a duplex unit and reconnecting it solved the problem.

I have a xante cl30 (oki c9500). I had a T. belt reset issue as well. This machine has a tiny fuse on the transfer belt that is supposed to blow when the transfer belt is installed. When the fuse blows, it resets the T. belt life count to 0. Replacing the fuse and reinstalling the T. belt solved my problem. I found the fuses @ Fuseco in Atlanta, GA. Hope this helps you. - Anonymous

Fuser wrap error. Means paper got stuck in the fuser probably wrapped around one of the rollers. Sounds like you will have to replace the fuser. Most likely one of the rollers is starting to deteriorate cuasing the paper to stick to the roller.

How to enter ENG DIAG LEVEL2 on the C5650?
by unknown on Sep 6, 2010 at 3:21pm Add comment
Don't open the drum case! It is much easier and you need no tools.

Read this: http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/67132#1
You need only the glass fuses ans the thin kables. You find the contacts on the right side of the printer case (they fit directly to the contacts of the drum unit). The contacts have a little hole, where you can fix the kables.
After connecting the fuse switch on the printer. About 20 seconds later the fuse blows and the drum unit is resettet.

When you make a short circuit a furse - error occurs.

Happy resetting!

To reset the drums of a 9600, 9650 or 9650 oki, you need

Option A: PU versión v00.05.04 or minor. Then apply the reset via menu.

Option B: A special fuse that you have to change at the drum.

Anybody knows how to downgrade de PU versión.

I have an OKI c5400dn showing "X DRUM LIFE" for the three colour drums.

I have been trying to follow the 'Consumable Counter Set instructions by Nono', but do not seem to be able to get beyond the display of "DIAGNOSTIC MODE / 01.02.07 S-MODE". I have tried many different combinations of buttons to get into 'regist mode' without success.

I have also had no luck with an alternative suggestion, I have been unable to find any key combination that gets me to "ENG DIAG LEVEL2".

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks

Finaly the procedure worked for me on my c3200 oki printer.
After the msg "Diagnostic mode" and you press the 5 button keys,
you see the msg READY or one of the messages "DRUM live" etc.
Release the buttons in sequence enter-back-"-"-online-cancel,
press asap online and cancel at the same time.
If you were lucky you got the ENG DIAG LEVEL 2 , success.

OK, I have the MuWin.exe file, I can grab the counter information from the printer, I think I've identified the hex values that represent the drum counter values, now, how do I push new values back to the printer? I have an Oki C9600N.

TFP Maintenance here is what I have found so far.

The MU_WIN saves the eeprom as a bin file when using the "Board Replacement menu,PU board replacement,Upload and save PU board setting value" menu item.

You can input the serial number of your printer for the ID and it will save a file with this format on my C5400 PX724N_XXXXXXXXXX_EEPROM.bin the X represents the ID number you entered.It saves it in the \\ProgramFiles\\Okidata\\MaintenanceUtility directory if you installed the program, don't know where it's saved it you run it without installing.

It you save a text version with the above menu item it matches the file saved under "Printer maintenance,Counter maintenance function" menu item.

If you can find the locations to modify in the bin file you can use the "Board Replacement menu,PU board replacement" menu item to save it back to the printer with the "Download the saved PU board setting value" menu item.

I think I will reset all the drums and compare the bin file and see what changes.

Those of you who want to try this may brick your printer if you choose the wrong location to change or use the wrong values.
by btfsc on Nov 24, 2010 at 1:29am Add comment
The drum counters are in plain hex, but not the toner values. In Muwin a counter value of 100 = empty, 0 = full, i presume. No such values in the bin file. Did anyone have luck in decoding? (C3600) - unknown

@OldSkoolVinyl:

Try http://www.okisa.co.za

Anyone success with decoding the PU Flash dump?
I suspect the Total PageCount at 00b6h and 00b7h in the text file. There seems to be some additional 76 byte header in the binary file (compared to the text file).

The 76 byte header for me:
4A 00 00 00 00 02 00 00 50 58 37 32 34 4E 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 BE 18 00 00

The .bin file's size is 588 bytes for my Oki C5250n - may be this is printer independent. I hope to try with a C5650n next week...

I suggest collecting and comparing several PU Flash files.
Educated guesswork: I hope the variables could be determined this way and an "full toner, belt, drum" file created for upload.

So I request you to provide some PU Dumps via eMail for comparison.

Hi.

I have a LUCIDIOM 9850 which is an OKI 9850 rebranded. We went in to the maintenance menu to check the machine's humidity reading. I have a feeling somebody changed the OKIUSER value and now the machine is saying 'incompatible toner' for all the colors and won't operate.

In diagnostics mode, it says invalid toner group.

How do we restore the machine to operational?
Can we reset the nv-ram. It doesn't appear on the diagnostic menu
What do we set the okiuser value to?

Please advise!

Hi,

I've been pouring over this thread and several others in an attempt top reset the K Toner level on our OKI C8800n.

I can get into the Maintenance menu (although it asks for a password - which I have figured out) and then scroll to ENGINE DIAG MODE, press enter then see: DIAGNOSTIC MODE 00.00.33 S-MODE.

After this however I cannot get to ENG DIAG LEVEL 2 and a menu option that sets consumable levels.

If anyone has an 8800 and knows how to do this I would really appreciate it. I have a near full K Toner here that stands to be wasted if I cannot figure it out!

Hi. From my post earlier in this forum:

Resetting consumables for OKI C7500 printer (and other C7000 series and C9000 series).

1. Hold buttons 0 + 1 + 6 + 7 on startup.

2. Press button 0 several times until "DIAGNOSTIC MODE xx.xx.xx" shows

My OKI service manual indicates a 163 error is something to do with the K toner. You may have a faulty toner level sensor. Sometimes disconnecting and reconnecting the plug to a sensor will fix the problem.

There is also step 3 for the list above:
3. Hold buttons 2 + 3 until "ENGINE DIAG LEVEL 4" shows.

Cheers, Neale.
