20 Most Recent OKI B4600 Printer Questions & Answers

You don't say which version of windows you are using. There is no windows 10 driver so you would be picking up a generic driver when plugging in via usb. If windows 7 or 8 then UNINSTALL (not delete) the Universal driver and install the US version 2.2.6. It wont be the printer as printers only print what they get. Its definitely a driver issue.

Try to clean every rubber roller in the printer. Make some soft "paper" wet with vinniger (Juuice from grapes (not to drink but for in salad's)) and rub it over the rollers. So they can transport paper better.
If possible, removing the rollers, and then cleaning.

You likely have the front panel locked out. If you can connect to the printer using a web browser, go to "Security" then "Panel Lockout". It is likely set to "Lock" -- change it to "Unlock" and save the settings.

The toner cartridge is only a supply chamber. The cartridge simply dumps toner into the feed hopper in the drum. When you change the drum the feed hopper is empty and it is likely that the cartridge dropped the last of it supply into the hopper - ergo it is now empty. I recommend shaking the toner back into the cartridge before separating the cartridge from the drum unit when changing them
