Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Color prints have two strips of toner that will rub off.

When I print on glossy stock (and sometimes thick uncoated), there are two streaks about 1/8" wide that run the length of the sheet. The toner will rub off in these streaks. The problem is worse on coated stock. The look like roller streaks, or they might be streaks on the fuser.

    Thanks to polebark! That seemed to improve the problem a lot, and the stripes are GONE!

    Should I upgrade to IE 8 or stay with 7?

    I just replace the color toners in my printer and now I get several lighter stripes when printing a picture.

Printing Quality on HP 4550 Colorlaserjet


most likely the OPC (drum) or sometimes called "image drum or transfer belt located in the top draw. this is a consumable that needs replacing after it's life cycle is over. sometimes it will go below or over the life cycle, it all depends on many variables.

I would take out all the consumables, toner, belt and so on and use a dry cloth and small vacuum to clean the inside of the printer, then test it again, but when you have streaks it is usually the transfer belt. other possibilities is the scanner/laser window inside, sometimes it gets toner on the glass.

but step 1 is the Transfer Belt/Drum

hope this helps

Residual image on DC12


Not sure if this is what you mean but it is normal for this machine to leave a faint residual image particularly noticeable on heavy weight glossy stock with high toner coverage. I found that it shows up on black the most. I reduced this by rubbing with a soft cloth after printing. You will also notice that the image becomes less noticeable after the oil evaporates. There really isn't a fix for this, it is the nature of the machine. Hope this helps.

Black streaks on copies from bypass tray and tray w/thick paper


Most likely you may of had a toner spill awhile ago and the toner may be biult up with in the paper path and it is draging in it. Also, it may have to do with the drum pick off claw unit. The paper may be rubbing against the unit with thicker paper. I would have your service person clean the whole paper path of lose toner and if they can bring another drum unit to test if the problem is in the drum unit it self. Good Luck

Glossy Paper descalibrates my Ilumina


suggestions...
first, make sure all your consumables are in good condition, run a configeration page and check the percentages....toners should be 10% or more.
drume should be 50% or more(depends on what weight stock u been running), but run the ID check print, to see drum results.
The transfer belt should be above 20%..
This will ensure your machine can deliver.
next, make sure you have the correct paper weight setting( both in front panel(web browser) and (application drivers) for the stock. If you have setting gtoo high, then over toning will occur.
also, stock must be suitable for laser printing, offset, or cheap paper will drive you nuts....
good luck

it is a fact of digital print that toner scatter will apear ever so slightly. But it is noticable much more on glossy stock, as there is a high reflectivity, and no micro valleys in surface texture to loose it in..having said that...glossy stock is very difficult to print on with the Ilumina..even on label setting/ auto select for weight and Media switch on(this is the best I have been able to achieve)
