With the top cover open, gently wipe the LED head(s) with the lens cleaner pad supplied with replacement toner cartridges. A soft, lint-free cloth with some isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol)** can also be used.As the last step before closing the cover when replacing a toner cartridge or an image drum.
If you are experience poor print quality, including
- longitudinal white stripes or fading
- blurred letter edges
CAUTION! Do not use methyl alcohol or other solvents on the LED heads: this will damage the lens surface.

Why can't I use a toner and drum set from an OKI c5250 in an OKI c5200


While the drum units may appear the same, chances are Okidata puts a different chip on it that makes in incompatible. The C5200 will use drums from a C5150. The C5250 appears to use different supplies.

Why does yellow not print on oki c5200?


The fountain under the yellow cartridge could be dried and clogged (assuming the cartridge is not dried up from too infrequent use and is not empty. If you stuff all around the fountain with rags and then gently force water into the fountain using a syringe you might be able to clear the ink passageway and restore yellow in the machine. Servicing the other fountains might be in order, too, since one clog is likely to be followed by others. Remember to use the printer more often to prevent such cloggingg. Also, you could try the built-in printer head clean function before trying the manual cleaning; but, generally, when it gets to the point of zero ink delivery, it's already to late to clear the ink clog with fresh ink, which is what the self clean feature does to try to dissolve the clog and restore ink flow to the fountain.

Take the toner-cartridge out, and gently tilt it left-and-right
to redistribute the remaining toner in the cartridge.
Reinstall it.

Just a thought for others... is this an image drum problem?
Also, if you haven't done this yet - try gently shaking the toner cartridges to redistribute the toner. Just make sure you do it gently and over a newspaper or rugs in case some toner spills. One last idea - turn off the printer and turn back on after a few minutes?
