Oki 3200n drum and toner reset

Am looking for info on fuses that can be used to reset toner and drum and some info on how to go about it.
Also how to possibly reset the printer using the button controls what sequence of commands is needed. They must have that info in their service manual. THANK YOU FOR any FEEDBACK
What about the chips of the C3300 toner cartridges? Do they need replacement, or someone can fill the toners and they will work?

For the Oki C3200 with No LCD, the replacement or addition of a fuse 422 012 or 422 006 to the drum unit will reset the drum life to 100\%. Fuse is available from RS Online or www.rsaustralia.com

I used the 422012 yesterday and it worked perfectly on my Oki C3200 with no LCD.

You will need to remove the toner cartridge from the top of the drum (do this over newspaper). From the top of the drum unit where the cartrdige was, remove the left and right screws. Gently clip off the top unit, exposing the toner powder. There is another screw on the right which you may or may not have to undo. On the side of the drum unit where the blue lever would be, you should be able to see two copper pieces. The fuse will need to slot into the copper pieces to create a circuit between the two pieces. You don't need to solder, just push the wire ends of the fuse into the slots on the copper sqaures. Reassemble and place back in the machine. Once the machine completes its warm up and initialises, the fuse should blow and the drum counter will be reset to 100 or 99\%.

The following website has a picture showing this http://printerdoctor.com/okidrumkit.htm BUT YOU DO NOT NEED TO to disassemble to this point to change the fuse. If you do it becomes messy and difficult to fully reassemble the unit to working order. I have only provided this link so you can easily locate where the fuse has to go.

Have you had any success in resetting the toner units with the OKI C3200 with no LCD as I sell refills but am not having much success with starter toners and C3300 toner cartridges.
Cheers

This worked a treat! Thanks.
To save making a mess: before taking the toner cartridge off, invert the whole assembly and give it a few taps to get (most of) the toner back into the cartridge. With the assembly upside down, hold the cartridge and drum together to stop them separating, close the lever on the toner cartridge, turn the whole lot right way up and you should find the drum unit is nearly empty. - Anonymous
I'm not sure if what I'm about to say is relevant to the above conversation because I'm new to the world of laser printers.

I bought a new OKI C3300 from PC World on Sunday. It prints fine, but the text and images once printed are easily smudged. I took this to a print expert, who said that the printer was not "finishing" and explained the heat transfer for the toner was not happening. The printer must be faulty.

I replaced the printer this afternooon only to discovver the same problem again!! Am I doing something wrong? What can I do to stop the smudging from occuring?

the fuser unit is not activated.
make sure you lock it down. there should be a lever on the unit to the side

I have the OKI C3200. When I replaced the black drum, it is displaying an error message that says "Check image drum and belt lock 343:K drum missing". The new drum is pressed firmly into place but with message displayed I can not print. Any help would be great.
Thanks

@Melvin25:
There's a little orange f00 attached to a blue switch on the right side of the fuser (not the release toggle, but the other one). Take that off and switch that toggle up - it'll activate the fuser.

Hi, can I change the fuse on my drum units (OKI C3200)? I ask that because I haven't replaced the drum units, so they are the one's that came with the printer. Are they starters like the chartdriges? Or are them easy to reset?

I did the NV RAM reset as described to my old C3200N but then all the drums from that old printer now doesn't work on my new C3200N. I called tech support and they actually told me that resetting might fry something in the circuit board even before I tell him that I did so.

How did you guys find these special keys? Do you guys have a service manual that you can share? Thanks in advance.

I have only printed 12000 pages on my oki3200 and have just bought a new black drum. Now my 3 colour drums need replacing. If I do the reset that is desrcibed in these blogs will that prevent me from having to buy new drums?? If so won't the printed images be corrupted?

Thanks for the help in advance

Does anyone know what a loud grinding sound is coming from when the printer starts to print. It prints fine but man it's loud. It is an OKI C3200. I just reset eveything and after about 100-150 prints this started. Any ideas what it is or does something need to be replaced?

Thanks,

Lance

Regarding the loud grinding sound Lance complained about, it might be the sound of the gears on the drum unit slipping. If the drum units are not pressed firmly down, the plastic gears at the right hand end do not mess adequately and slip, giving a rumbling sound. - tkightley
Is there a solution? I would like to hear.

Regarding the solution given for resetting the drum life using a small axial fuse, RS type 422 012, I obtained some 125mA fuses - 65mA were not available from my supplier - and fitted one as described. However, it did not blow on switching on and I got flashing lights indicating a 'serious error'. So, I blew the fuse by touching the contacts on the drum unit with a PP3 battery , but this did not reset the drum life.

Then, I thought I would simulate the conditions by connecting thin, insulated, single stand, wires (the cores of telephone cables are ideal) to the looped contacts in the cavity in the case which connect to the contacts on the end of the drum. I connected an analogue meter, set to 500mA range, to the ends of the leads and switched on the printer. After about 5 secs., the current rose to about 400mA and dropped back again, so I disconnected the meter. But this did not reset the drum life value - which was 1\%. So, I repeated the exercise but, this time, disconnected the meter immediately the current rose. Eureka!. Now the drum life registers 99\%. So, it appears to be essential to do a quick disconnection to simulate the fuse blowing.

Incidentally, the utility which gives drum life and other information about the C3200 printer is OKI-StatMon.exe which can be downloaded from the OKI web site.

Hi, when you say "mac printer" do you mean a MACINTOSH printer/computer, or the "MAC Address" as listed on the Oki Menu print-out sheets?

I have the Printer IP browser page open, but it won't let me log-in. I have no idea what the log-in info is. I tried doing as you describe, for "NAME" I put the IP of the printer (same address as in the browser URL window, right?) And for "PASSWORD" I put in the last six digits (characters and digits in my case) of the "MAC Address" as shown on the Oki Menu print-out sheet.

Still won't let me log in, says either Name or Password is incorrect.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks!

My printer keeps giving me a belt life error message, yet there is nothing wrong with the performance. I do a total reset and the message goes away for a couple days then it comes right back. I'd hate to change the belt if it is still working, then have something go wrong where it doesn't work -- it seems like an unnecessary risk. I have bunches of cartriges and I would not be able to use them and lose all that money. (does anyone know which other models use the same cartridges, just in case)?

I'm not experienced with the Oki 3200 in particular, but the general idea is that the fuse should blow as fast as possible when you install the toner or drum. The Samsungs I work on use a 12 mA fuse. I couldn't find one that small, so I substituted 63 mA and it worked fine.
