Question about Minolta magicolor 2200 DeskLaser Printer
Minolta Magicolor 2200. Paper folds up right before drum. It comes out of the paper tray then gets shoved into the drum right before it is about to put the toner on the page.
This problem is caused by a poor glue compound used on a solonoid assembly (SL3) in the back of the printer. Although difficult to get to, it is easy to fix.
Remove the back panel. Now remove the power board (PWB-A) - that's the lower-left board with the over-abundance of connections. At the top of the newly exposed area will be a solonoid assembly (SL3) - a small, black, round device connected by two wires and mounted to a brass-colored bracket. This assembly is mounted by one screw. Remove the screw and the solonoid assembly. Now that you have the solenoid assembly out, the repair should be a snap.
Notice on the assembly will be a brass lever held in place by a spring. At the tip of the lever that rests against the brass bracket, you should be able to see a tiny black pad when you push down on the other end of the lever. The glue that holds the black pad in place is the problem. The pad is likely part-way to most of the way out of position. Lining the pad back up with the tips of both brass pieces and supergluing it will do the trick. Just make sure to not superglue the brass pieces together and to let the superglue cure before putting it back together.
As to exactly why this repair procedure works, I'm unsure. I can only speculate that the lever must rest too far from the solonoid and be failing to stop the gear that feeds the paper. Or in my case, with only one or two folds in the paper, it must have been functioning too slowly.
