Question about Konica Minolta Magicolor 2530 DL Laser Printer

Magicolor 2400W error

My printer has stopped printing, indicating that ALL 4 of my toner cartridges are empty (toner indicator lights are solidly on and error light steadily flashing). All 4 cartridges were replaced August 2008 (1500 sheets for the color, 4500 for the black). I print an average 160 pages a month (minimum color printing) ! Could it really be that all four emptied at the same time? I've also noticed that when I print only black (no color), the ink easily smears. To prevent smearing, I just change one word or a letter to dark blue and the document prints without problems.

Please help! I am school teacher and spending over $400 on cartridges is a nightmare!

This happens to me every few months, I have to do a VERY detailed cleaning of all toner sensors. The knowledgebase on KM's website is actually very good about walking you through which sensors to clean and pictures indicating where they are located. This has fixed me up every time. GOOD LUCK!

Magicolor 2400W toner cartridges not empty


Have you tried taking the toner cartridge out of the printer and shaking it up a bit? Just make sure you do it outside or over a trash can. Shake it side to side.

Sometimes the toner bunches up and you can get some more life out of it by shaking it up.

Hope this helps

Thanks

If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.
2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

Error light, can't find the problem


Hi, you should check the position of paper sensor flag, called "actuator" (part number 4139 3505 02). On the picture - part 15. The "paper jam" error message means also - "toner cartidge missing", "paper out" or "photoconductor missing" e8dd7eb.gif
