Question about Konica Minolta Magicolor 2530 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Magicolor 2530 DL

We are experiencing straight line streaks in the same place from the top to the bottom of the page. The streak is around a 16th of an inch wide. We were printing and everything was fine then it just started to streak. We turned the printer on and off and it is not as bright of a streak but it is very visible. Our toner is getting low but we can't change it until it is empty. Appreciate any help. Thank you.

    Two verticle ghost white colored lines in my pages when printing colored pages. I have cleaned the laser plate/glass and wiped down the transfer belt, the drum says 44% and has had no issues until now and still I get the lines on all of my print outs. I have adequate toner and they do not seem to be the issue. It is a refurb printer, yeah replaced the faulty NEW one with a frefurb I now have for 6 months.

The streaks are typically a sign of a toner drum going bad, or possibly just dirty, or even caused by the toner being low, as you have mentioned it to be. 1 way I know to 'clean' the drums is to have the printer run multiple blank pages. If your software will not allow you to print blank pages, type a single character by using this little trick, hold down the ALT key, and type 2 5 5 on the number pad in a blank text document. This will allow you to print the "blank" document, I would suggest about 10 copies. This should help for a short duration, and doesn't use any toner.

Hope this helps!

Lift drum out, look down behind toner and you will see a glass lens.
Clean it with a soft cloth or tissue. Works every time.

I have a streak from top to bottom of page that is about a 16th of an inch wide that does not print. What part needs replaced and where do I purchase it?


Sounds like a printer head problem. Take it to a shop where they normally refill printer cartridge inks, and get them to service your printer head.

Try cleaning the laser lens using the laser lens cleaning wand. However, it is likely that your black cartridge needs to be replaced based on the troubleshooting from the Minolta manual. Sorry,

2530 DL problem printing, has a streak of white line all the way down the page. Has plenty of toner in it.


If all the toners are not empty, then you have toner or dust on the print head unit. Remove the drum cartridge and you will see beneath it a narrow glass, just be sure that glass is clean.
