Konica Minolta Copier service code C0070 C-0070

This service code C0070 is a universal code used by Konica Minolta to indicate a toner bottle rotation failure. These machines add toner by rotating the toner bottle that you install in the machine. Most of the time this code is caused by a toner cartridge that has been installed incorrectly or has become dislodged from it's holder. To clear the code open the front door or toner door and remove the toner cartridge/bottle from the machine. Close the toner door and if needed open then close the front door to reset the code. Let the machine run. This may take several minutes and will allow the machine to bring the toner bottle receptacle into it's home position. Once the machine stops running completely, then you can re-install the toner cartridge. If the code does not come back you are ready to go. If the code came back after removing the toner but before you re-installed it then you have either a dirty rotation sensor or a bad toner drive motor and will need service.
If the code comes back after the cartridge is re-installed then there is either a priblem with the cartridge or with the toner bottle drive.
Most of the time though the problem will be resolved by the outlined procedure.

error code c0070 konica minolta copier service code c0070


Sir/Mam
Power off the machine. Then remove the toner bottle, be careful the hole might be on the bottom and the toner is going to go everywhere. Then close the toner cover and turn on the machine. Let the machine go through it normal routine. When it asks for toner install the toner bottle correctly. If THE KNUB on the side of the bottle is damage put a new one in. That KNUB is what the toner motor uses to turn the bottle, if it damaged you get a code. If that does not work, you might have a bad motor or the home sensor or actuator for the toner bottle is bad worse case the control board is bad.
