Customer Questions & Answers

Can't find the answer you're looking for? Our printer experts are here to help! Ask a Question
  • Do they do a maintenance kit for this printer?

    The OKI C531dn does not have a maintenance kit, however the fuser unit, which is usually the item contained in a maintenance kit, is available for purchase on it's own.

  • what is the point of an image drum

    An imaging drum is needed as it is the process of transferring the ink from the cartridge, receiving the image or text and then transferring it to paper.

    On 06/10/2016 14:04:32
  • What weight card does this duplex?

    The OKI C531dn (01327801) will double sided print on paper weights of 64 to 176gsm.

  • Will this print number plates?

    The Oki C531dn colour printer will not print directly on to number plates. However we do have many customers who use this machine to print the transfers for the number plates. Please call us on 0800 130 1992 for further assistance.

  • Hi I need to print on 190gsm A6 Card, roughly printing around 100 pages a day.

    The Oki C531dn colour printer can handle media weighing up to 220gsm through the 100 sheet multi-purpose tray that can handle A6 media. So this printer will be fine with your requirements.

  • Paul Rix 22 February 2018 2 / 5 Value 1 Features 5 Quality 1 Performance 1 Bad apple

    Our printer started off well, with low usage on a regular basis. It spilled the entire cyan cartridge after about 50 colour pages. OKI tech support seemed helpful but we didn’t manage to resolve the problem and by the time we figured out that the image drum was defective the warranty had run out. Not happy / expected more from OKI.

  • Fred 29 November 2016 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Good as it gets/

    My existing 531dn has served very well for more than four years. then it dies without warning needing a "Service". Eh? OKI tried to troubleshoot and then put me on to nice man in Belfast. This was going to cost almost as much as new printer. No reason to change brands or look outside Printerland and Jake and Andy did the deal. OK the thing was awaiting re-supply so no chance of the over night delivery. But it arrived and was plugged in and working without problems. The nice thing is I have a new 4 year guarantee and a supply of toners for virtually the same rice as the "Service". I call that a win - win deal. Thanks.

  • Paul 04 October 2016 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Great product - exact delivery

    I've had a few OKI machines before at work, and these produced excellent printing and never seemed to jam. Somehow these machines escape the popularity ratings and the main street shops, so I was happy to find in reviews that OKI is still praised for quality. Excellent delivery service, and easy to install the printer straight from the box with ROM. I guess I would have to dump the ROM onto a USB stick to install on laptop without ROM drive. Printer driver installation took 15 minutes with minimal effort and no tricky questions, but with good explanations. First print was brilliant, we'll see how we go from here. Printerland was very helpful during my initial enquiry so I don't foresee any dramas.

  • Steven Cosgrove 20 September 2016 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Another dependable product from oki

    Looking around for another 511dn we found it had been updated to this, uses the same toners and just as dependable as our other OKI 511dn, can't go wrong.

  • Jackie Gower 20 September 2016 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 New printer

    Excellent service and very quick delivery we have bought loads of printers from printer land and will continue to do so

  • Julie Reid 22 August 2016 5 / 5 Value 5 Features 5 Quality 5 Performance 5 Procuct Purchase

    This is my 3rd OKI printer in the last 4 years (business expansion). They get lots of use printing invoices every day in in a mail order business and never give a problem. No paper jamming, carttidges last well and easy to install.

  • Antonia 25 July 2016 4.5 / 5 Value 4 Features 4 Quality 5 Performance 5 C531DN

    We work in a busy office using printers everyday without fail- this printer was very easy and quick to set up and ready to go within 10 minutes. Very efficient when printing documents and can handle a big print run. I would recommend this printer to others!
