Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL Laser Printer
My printer has just recently begun casting a faded line across the prints. I checked the toner levels, and they're all okay, and it seems to be all of the colors except black that are having a problem. Basically, the line is printed about 2/3 of the way into the page, and runs down the entire print (vertical, so it's like there's a spot somewhere?). Black is fine. I can print a whole page of text and there's nothing wrong with it. It's when I print in color that there's a problem. I've tried printing out pages of each of the colors individually, and it doesn't seem that one color is better or worse than the others. Although black is okay.
The imaging bar has speck of dust on it.
Turn printer OFF.
Open the printer. Pull out the transfer roller. Should have a big green handle. Do not touch the roller.
Look inside for a shiny rectangular block about 5inches x 0.5 inch.
This is the imaging bar. Using a lint free cloth with no chemical and no water, gently wipe this bar to remove any specks of dust/paper specks.
Put roller back.
Close the printer.
Turn printer ON.

Thanks to polebark! The dust seemed to be the problem, or at least it has made the prints MUCH better!

Hi, Try cleaning the nozzle head from the color cartridge. If still doesn't work, then try a good color ink cartridge to pinpoint whether it's the cartridge head or the particular color ink cartridge. If none of those work, you might need to replace the printer head. This faded line has to do with the printer head or the nozzle head connection with each other. Good Luck Lolita
