KM 2430DL prints 'shady' pages

Was told from a local printer expert to fix this problem, I would need to replace the drum unit. Did so and it didn't fix the problem (returned the new drum also). Pages are coming out 'grainy' or 'shady'. HELP! Love the printer otherwise....

If all the colors are effected by grainy look, then it could be the imaging unit like you were told or the transfer belt. Unfortunately there generally isn't a way to test which one it is but to swap and test.

I have a 2430dl and it is leaving lines on my copies is this the drum


Send a print to the unit, open printer when paper is in drum area (guess and open a door or turn off, to stop the printer) open carefully, remove carefully and look at the paper, are the lines there, pull drum unit, flip open drum protection door if equipt, and look at the partial image on it, If the lines were imaged on the drum, replace drum unit. No marks on drum or paper yet, posible the fusing section roller is damaged and marking pages. Stop test will show where defect starts.

Kyocera Mita 2050 there are streaks of toner appearing on the pages printed.


If you send a print job or print a report from the copier and there is no streaks then the problem is most likely the thin **** glass to the left of the large glass. It just needs to be claened.

If the streaks are happening when printing and copying then the problem is most likely your drum unit (MK-410) or possibly the fixing unit (FU-410), the fixing unit is the one that gets hot.

As the drum gets old it can cause print/copy issues and the cleaning blade that cleans the drum gets to the point it doesn't clean the drum properly causing streaks.

The heat roller has a teflon coating on it and as the roller gets older the teflon starts to come off and can effect prints/copies.

The drum unit should be replaced every 150,000 pages and the fixing unit every 300,000 pages on the KM-2050.

I hope this is helpful,
Shawn

I get several vertical white lines in my prints.


Do you have enough ink in your printer? This can be a problem. A faulty drum/roller could also be a cause which in that case will need to be replaced. Since you have done your part i guess the rest should be handeld by an expert personally.
good luck.

Black lines or smudge marks\running down the prints


Hello sir;The streak line from printing also should be from copy, because the line come from imaging unit, check the meter count if close to or over 50,000 then replace drum and drum blade, it will take care the problem.

Minolta Magicolor 2430dl Color smudges line on edge of paper


please check the transfer belt, it seems that the transfer belt is not cleaning very well, if you find same marks on TBU then you may try to clean the cleaning unit if no help, then replace TBP.

Open the top cover. Remove the drum (part with long green handle). Below the drum you will see a strip of glass about 4-5 inches long. Take a cloth and wipe across the glass.

This will normally clear up any white lines in your print.

There is only a manual reset for the toners but I'm sure you already knew that... The drum is just a plug-n-play type consumable and should just reset automatically unless it's an old drum... ( make sure that you didnt make the mistake like so many of us a reput the old drum back in again) if your sure its the new one then it's obviously defective and depending on where you got it you should be able to defect it out for credit... hope this helps... www.bigmoneycentral.com
