C7200 maintenance Menu's and reset tonner for C7200, C7300, C7500

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

2) Using button #1 scroll down untill you see "Diagnostic Mode xx.xx.xx", 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.

 Turn off toner page counting on the OKC3200N

We don\t  want to do the NVRAM complete reset because we can lose network settings.

Diagnostic mode

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 xx.xx.xx S-Mode" .

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.

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 xx.xx.xx S-Mode" menu by pressing the five buttons again.

Now you see "Eng Diag Level 2".

Or

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).

3) 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.

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

5) 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.

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

 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".

Drum, Toner, Fuser, Belt Reset on 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.
