Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 5430 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printing colours? The 5430DL i'm using has started printing weirdly, it prints strips of pure colour [very faint] down the middle of the page, Blue, Pink, Yellow. Only does it on the first page, and not all the time, but it's a major pain when it does. Any help?

Myprinter will not print all colours they are mainly blue and yellow but very faint. I have carried out ALL the maintenace procedures several times without success and have checked that all the cartridges...

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Printers
Right-mouse-click on your printer, and choose "printing preferences" or "properties".
There may be an option to control how "light" or "dark" the printing will be, i.e., use "less" or "more" ink per page.

Also, click "print test page", to ensure that the test-page has all 3 "primary" colours.

Also, click "clean ink cartridges", to try to repair any blockages inside the ink-cartridge.

Likely your purge unit needs cleaning...

Make sure by printing out a test page from printer (not from computer).

If test page is good, you have a software issue. If test page is bad, you need to clean your head and/or purge unit.
