Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2400 Laser Printer

2 Answers

Just a few days ago my printer will not print. It will come up with the message that says Open the printer cover and put Yellow Toner Cartridge. The yellow is in and it is not empty. I took the color out, then it rotated and told me to put cyan toner cartridge in. All of these cartridges have lots of color left. How can I make my printer print again.

I have also seen the small wire pick ups under the toners to be dirty. To check this, remove all the toners, and then "Carefully" clean around the pick ups with a cotton swab and water... I also use a pink eraser on the surface of the chips on the individual toner cartridges.

Let it go through its checks. When you take the toner out, clean it, wipe off the chip (upper right) then snap it back in. It may stop with the yellow and it may continue through the other colors.

What I found, is that it is really the paper feed being out of sync. Keep with it, it will resolve itself.

Also, take out the drum and turn the paper feed forward till it clicks and realign your paper.

Cartridges error on a lexmark


Error: "Invalid Toner Cartridge"; Error: "Invalid Refill"; Message: "Change Cartridge"
Solution
One of these error messages may appear on the printer display immediately after or shortly after a new toner cartridge is installed into the printer. Note: This may not be specifically a toner cartridge problem; the error may be due to a stuck cover open switch on the printer.

To see if the cover open switch is the cause of this problem, open the top front cover and observe the message on the printer's display panel. The display should read Close Door or Insert Cartridge.


If this message is not displayed, the top cover open sensor and switch will need to be replaced. In addition, the printer may have damaged the new toner cartridge. If the cover open sensor is not operating properly, a new cartridge can be incorrectly flagged as a refilled cartridge by the printer. If this happens, the new cartridge will continue to cause an Invalid Refill or Invalid Cartridge error even if you try reinstalling it or installing it into another printer. If this should occur, please contact the point of purchase of the cartridge to find out how to get the cartridge replaced.

Caution: If the cover open sensor is not operating, do not install another new toner cartridge until you have completed the directions below. Inserting another new cartridge can cause that cartridge to stop working as well. Should this situation arise, please take the following actions:


Place the original working cartridge (the empty or near-empty one) back into the printer. This should clear the error message.

Turn the printer off. Doing this will disengage the cover open sensor.

With the printer switched off, open the top lid and remove the old toner cartridge.

Now replace the old cartridge with another new Lexmark toner cartridge.

Power the printer back on. The printer should now read this cartridge as a newly installed toner cartridge and the error should be cleared. The printer and toner cartridge should function properly now, but the top cover sensor on the printer will still need to be replaced.

If your printer is still under warranty or covered under a service contract, please contact Lexmark Technical Support or your service provider for further recommendations and instructions. Until you can get the cover open switch replaced, remember to have the printer powered off whenever you replace the toner cartridge.

If the top cover switch appears to be working fine, or if you have followed the above steps and your printer continues to post an Invalid Toner Cartridge or Invalid Refill error, make sure you are using a new original Lexmark toner cartridge. A toner cartridge remanufactured or refilled by a third party can cause this error.

To help identify a refilled cartridge, look for the yellow label attached to the toner drum and the body of the toner cartridge. If this is damaged or removed, the cartridge may have been refilled.

If you are using a third-party refilled or remanufactured toner cartridge, it is recommended that you install a new Lexmark brand toner cartridge. Lexmark cannot guarantee the compatibility of any third-party toner cartridges with our printers.

OR

1 Switch on the Lexmark X83 printer.

2 Lift open the cartridge door at the front of the device, below the scanner unit. The printer automatically moves the cartridge carrier to the correct position.

3 Pull each ink cartridge toward you to unclasp it from the carrier. Lift the cartridge out of the cartridge carrier.

4 Clean the copper contacts on the bottom of each cartridge with a clean, dry lint-free cloth. Use a gentle, circular motion to clean the contacts.

5 Insert the ink cartridges back into the cartridge carrier. Push back firmly on each cartridge until it snaps into place.

6 Repeat each step in this procedure again. Close the cartridge door.

How open in laser toner catridge make-xerox model-phaser 3100


Replace the toner: Always use the smart card provided with the new Print Cartridge when replacing the cartridge. The smart card contains the information necessary to reset the level of Toner. Replacing the cartridge without using the smart card may result in the consumable management system being inaccurate.
  1. Insert the smart card provided with the new Print Cartridge into the smart card reader. A "Change Toner?" message will be displayed.

  2. Press the [OK] button. An "Open Front Cover Replace Toner" message will be displayed.
  3. Push on the left and right side of the Front Cover and simultaneously lower the cover.

  7. Press the [OK] button. A "Please Wait" message will be displayed while the machine reads the smart card, and then a "New Toner Remove Card" message will be displayed.
  8. Remove the smart card from the reader and dispose of the card as normal office waste.

    NOTE: If the smart card has been used with a previous installation of a Print Cartridge, a "Remove Card Already Used" message will be displayed. The smart card can only be used once. Make sure to use the card that came with the new cartridge.

Brother HL-2040 toner led stays on, won't print


There is a window on each end of the toner cartridge that you can cover with electrical tape and keep printing, it shines a light thru and when the toner is too low it says it's empty. The weight can be misleading.

Dell 3110cn toner error message "remove y tape". I have changed the cartridge twice now and cannot get the message to go away. Now after just a few days in the machine the yellow is beginning to fade like...


A new Dell original toner cartridge has a pull tab on one side. This is a seal on the toner hopper and prevents spillage during transit.

Some remanufacturers fit a seal too.

This is not the same as the drum cover (large orage plastic thing on front of cartridge), which you will have removed.

I order for the cartridge to be tested, a small amount of toner is used on top of the seal.



So, it sounds like you haven't pulled the seal, and the "after just a few days yellow fading like empty", fits in with this.

HP color laser 2550L prints only in yellow


Hi Mmgrafde,

Press the Go and Rotate Carousel buttons simultaneously. This will calibrate the printer. See if this works.

Otherwise....Remove all cartridges and drum. Switch off printer. Close the lid. Switch on printer and wait until any churning stops. Insert the drum and close the lid. Wait until any churning stops. Put in one cartridge at a time, closing the lid and wait till it stops churning each time. With the last cartridge put in, it will churning longer (calibrating). Try to print from your computer.

It could also be that the toner could actually have run out for the other colors.

Xerox phaser 7300 toner cartridge problems


Hi,
Sometimes on this machine as there is a lot of loose toner around it can cover over the sensors in the machine, what I would advise is to remove all the toner cartridges and check for the copper contacts on both the machine and under the imagining unit (which the toner is placed in). Once you have cleaned that away slowly close the lid and reboot the machine and it should return to normal. Its just toner getting caught up in the sensors. Follow the instructions below, when you remove the unit, lift it over your head to find the copper contacts and clean them, be careful not to spill toner everywhere. Good luck!

Reseating the imaging unit
    Remove the toner cartridge:
  1. Open the top cover.
    openthetop196x185.gif
    caution_image88x30.gif The imaging units are sensitive to light. Do not expose the imaging units to light any longer than necessary to remove it and cover it. Failure to follow these instructions may damage the imaging units.
  2. Identify the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow or Black).

  3. Move the orange lever on the toner cartridge to the right so that it unlocks.

  4. Lift on the back side of the toner cartridge first, then guide the cartridge out of the printer.

HL-4040CN don't show or read new refilled magenta cartridge.


If you have removed and reinstalled the magenta cartridge several times, it is very likely the cartridge is defective out of the box. If you have another magenta cartridge, put that one in and see if the problem resolves. I'm betting it will. If that second cartridge does work, then return the defective cartridge to where you purchased it - they should replace it without a hassle.
