Magicolor 5550 toner replacement problem

I have just replaced a Cyan toner cartridge in my Magicolor laser printer 5550. Having dome this many, many times before I am familiar with the process. This time, the printer will not recognise the new cartirdge and will not print anything because the cyan is "missing". I have done nothing different and have tried a number of times but with no luck...The cartridge is a bone fide Magicolor product from a reliable source. Help help help thanks

make sure your cartridge is not stuck and pushed in all the way in printer. If it gets struck it will dump ink out and waste it.

SOURCE: Error light flashes ... Message: Open the printer

Hi Connie,

If you take out all the toners you will find a contact at the bottom where the chip from the cartridges touch , these three springs work loose.

If you notice them loose, you need to take the black clip out split it and solder them back on; that will sort the problem out.

CLICK HERE to download Service Manual for future reference (Its for MC 2300, works for 2400 series as well) Troubleshooting with service manual is on Owners risk.

Magicolor 3730DN toner not installed


I had something similar happen with a Magenta cartridge. My only option was to call Minolta. After hours on the phone they finally agreed to replace the faulty cartridge.

I suspect that from time to tame we receive a cartridge with a faulty chip.

Hp clj 5550 not printing cyan


Check the black cover on the pick up assembly under the cyan cartridge. If it is only a fraction too high cyan will not print. Make sure it is clipped in place correctly.

HP laserjet 5550 not printing cycan. Replaced cartridge, DC Controller board, laser scanner, and High Voltage board. Out of ideas....


You will not find the answer to this problem on any forum as I have searched each one! However I have had the same problem and found out that if you have reseantly replaced or reseated the Paper Pic-up assy you may have not pushed down the plastic top cover which sits directly underneath the Cyan Cartridge, this will cause your 5550/5500 to think there is no problem and carry on printing without any error messages.

Hi there, need your kind help. My Hp laserjet 5550 has a missing colour problem. Cyan is missing in the print out, giving rise to to blue and green colours being absent in print-outs. Scanner is confirmed...


Cyan cartridge is OK, means that the display shows the level of toner in the cartridge, right? Then chip it is ok.
Try another cyan toner, the printer may be that it has broken the opening flap of the laser. Or check if the laser's flap cyan is blocked.

How to remove the toner cartridges


Close the cover to the machine and make sure you aren't getting any other error messages other than the toner. When the printer is at the ready state press the rotate toner button. You should hear the printer rotate the toner and then the light over the cyan cartridge will come on. Keep pressing the rotate toner button until you get to the color you want to replace. Open the top cover and front door where the KM logo is. You should see the cyan cartridge in place. Pull the cyan tab back toward you. The front part of the toner should release. Now pull the tab and the toner straight up and out of the printer. If you are having problems getting the toner out it is probably not in the correct position. There is a slot on either side of the printer that he back end of the toner cartridge needs to be in before the toner will come out.

Konica minolta error


I had the same problem and found that one of the toner cartridges must have not been seated properly. I removed the black toner cartridge and re-fitted it. The printer now works fine again with no errors. 17H is a code relating to a fault in the rotation ......... possibly one or more toner cartridges need checking. Use the menu on the printer to turn it to the appropriate position (i.e. engine menu then select replacement of whichever toner you are checking).
Hope this fixes your as well.

Toner problems


A couple of suggestions. 1. make sure there is not any plastic shipping tabs that need to be removed from the cartridge. 2. try reseating the cartridge. 3. Try replacing that cyan cartridge. It may be defective. Also make sure you use Minolta brand toners!
