Printing from 2 different pc, drivers installed on the server, get different quality

Hi, We have a Konica 5430dl installed on a server running SBS2003. When users are printing using different Pc the result is good and the same. Recently, we have set upa new user with a Sony laptop, installed the same printer from the server, therefore using the same drivers, and the printing quality is blur and different. We have deleted the printer from the machine, deleted the drivers, reconnected to the server to install the printer, and still the same problem?. As we are using the drivers installed on the server, how can the printing be different only with this particular user ?. Thank you for your help.

I think that quality settings is different for each user. If your printer have network card, pleas install printer with TCP/IP port in every PC, not from server, more job, but less problems.

I've been printing from my pc to our Konica C360series copier for months - the photo quality has been perfect! However, recently, the quality is awful! You can see the pixels, the focus is off, etc. None...

you can try running gradation to reset the imaging. Also try an internal test print.. 1) utility 2)user setting 3)printer setting 4)print reports 5)demo
you can use this to compare prints to test if its a driver issue.

How do I print 8-1/2" x 14" paper. I only have one 8-1/2" x 11" tray? Konica Minolta Magicolor 5430DL

On the 5430 DL there is an aux legal tray that can be purchased for legal printing. On a later successor the 5550 a manual feed option was included, however for the 5430 there is no option for printing legal without the extra tray being installed. On a side note, I have this tray and when not printing legal it lets me load an extra 500 sheets of letter paper which is very convenient when I need to print a bunch of sheets overnight.

Konica Minolta 5430DL second tray - print dialogue

This needs to be setup through the computer using the printer properties, not through the printer. You will need to be the local admin to make the changes. You may also have to go under advance and manual specify the tray and component types. The printer will not allow you to set options for trays and components that are not enabled or detected. Let me know if you need a step-by-step.

KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 5430DL don't recognize paper

The machine keeps track of what paper was reqested last, and asks you to change paper if the new job is different. I get the "put media" message and have to open and close the drawer if my next print job requests a different paper. So I suggest you gently open and slam the drawer a couple of times, or see if you can find the sensor switch that monitors whether the drawer is open. Also check if your paper guides in the drawer are clicked in place.

I couldn't find the install disks so downloaded the driver from the Konica website, un-installed the software and re-installed it. After calibrating the colours everything seems fine now.

Printer problem

I think I had a chat with you , here is trancription:

You are now in session with bazza1963
ginko says:

ginko says:
are you there?

ginko says:
seems you need to re-install driver softwar for your printer, do you have printer disks? and which version of operative system are you using (Windows XP, Vista, etc)

ginko says:
I will try to find drivers for windows, give me some minute

ginko says:
Here is Driver download page for your printer, start downloading the one for for your system:

ginko says:

ginko says:
Here is installation guide, same as the one provided with printer:

ginko says:

ginko says:
download the above driver software.

ginko says:
is the same as the one distributed in disk coming with printer , if you have the disk you can use the disk

ginko says:
Once you downloaded software do the following:

ginko says:
1 disconnect printer from PC

ginko says:
2 expand and install downloaded software, alternatevely use the disk provided with the printer. Do this with printer disconnected.

ginko says:
3 when asked from installation, or after installation, connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable , not the network (ethernet) cable

ginko says:
4 the printer will be recognised in Windows, if it does not restart the PC

ginko says:
You must use an usb cable to use this printer as a local printer.

ginko says:
You may need a router to use the ethernet cable (one similar to thick phone cable) provided with the printer

ginko says:
therefore ensure you are using the right cable

ginko says:
here is an example of usb cable, sometimes it is not provided with the printer, have a look,. This is the right cable you need to use to connect this printer to local computer, the other one is for network

ginko says:
check on how it looks like and ensure you are using the right one

ginko says:
let me know if you need further help, I am not receiving much feedback from you

ginko says:
Best regards

ginko says:
Also check under printers in vista that you have this printer installed and that it is the default print

I could not get any feedback from you , do not know if there was something wrong with chat software
