Text is printing too low on the page


I have a Magicolor 2400w and had the same problem... I hope I'm not to late because I almost put mine in the trash.

How I fixed the problem was I adjusted the solenoid behind the fan on the right side. I made a video and posted is on YouTube. Search YouTube for Magicolor 2400w paper size error. or follow the link.

I have Minolta 2300W Laser Printer and it folds the first page only about 3 to 4 inches down makes a nice one inch fold but take that out and print again...next page fine.....now printing with two wide...


The is blocked by dust on the side of the paper on the image unit that would have color associated with the print. Remove all the image units and clean all the laser glass. Replace those image units also if streaking as for the paper ensure correct paper side and media type.

There is a known issue for these printers to "streak." If under warranty, call Dell. If not, there is a fix

Problem with konica minolta paper margin


You don't have any solution but to increase the above margin to be equal as the bottom margin. To successfully print the pages, this printer need a larger bottom margin compared with the above margin. Just use the 'Center on page' option from your graphic application.

Margin problem???


I can just guess it has to do with the paper being fed. either you have the paper wrong or the paper settings to a different size then the actual dimensions of your print material.
