Having problems getting an Oki B431 to reset after replacing the drum

Technician's Assistant: Is this the first time you've had to change the ink for your B431?

Ink, no. The drum yes

Technician's Assistant: Are you getting any error messages? Are you able to open the lid that covers the cartridges on your printer?

After replacing the drum & cartridge, the window still says replace image drum

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

That should do it

Unplugged this morning for 3-4 minutes. Plugged back in, no change. Still shows replace image drum message.
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
This is a printer that is used for about 100 or so copied a day. Any ideas? I know we are small company but not having this printer up is an inconvenience. Any help you can provide would be great.
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 6 months ago

Press the "Online" button near the display panel on the top of the printer to take the unit offline.

Step 2

Press the "Menu" button a few times until the Maintenance Menu option appears on the display panel's LCD screen.

Step 3

Press the "Select" button, and then press "Item" repeatedly until the Drum Count Reset menu option appears. Press the "Select" button to reset the counter.

Step 4

Press the "Online" button again to return the OKI Data printer to normal printing mode.

I did all of that last night. I googled that before I contacted your service. My display does not show S-Mode, it shows F-Mode. When I hit select when it shows the F-Mode window, it does nothing to change the screen. If I go to NVRAM Parameter screen and hit select, it just shows clear. Don’t know whether that or a for a B431 to reset. Could not get to a window in that menu list to reset
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 6 months ago

Did you press the ONLINE and ENTER buttons after that?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Harry, I am not going to rate the service good or bad. I had googled many of the things you mentioned before i contacted you. I contacted the manufacturer Okidata. They told me the problem was with the printer itself. The sensor that resets the drum count was the problem. It was verified when i put the new drum in my other printer. The drum life reset to 99% after installing it. I know you get many questions on many different products. Don't want to be unfair to you by giving a poor review.
Technician: Harry, Engineer replied 6 months ago

I appreciate it.

If you wish to rate as 3-5 stars, I will get paid for our time together. Thank you and Happy New Year!
