Question about Konica Minolta Magicolor 2530 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Ink I have replaced the pprinter with numerous cartidges. But everytime I print the ink smudges. You can run your finger across the paper and the ink comes right off. No matter color or just black. When I print a document that olny fills up half the page, it's like it mirrors what I just printed on the bottom part.

There is a problem with your fuser assembly. It is not heating up enough to burn the ink onto the paper. This is usually replaced by a tech.

Perhaps try accessing the menu using the press the index sheet button and the scan button at the same time, you then get setup menu. use" >" to select "change ink cartidge". the ink cartidge carriage will move to the opening position. lift the grey plastic clip at the back, and it will open towards you. then pull out the ink by holding with thumb and first finger and rotating towards you. insert the ink again by pushing in and rotating away from you. close grey cover. now confirm ink replaced as per screen prompt. the machine will run the ink to the print head, takes a minute. then turn off and on and it 'should' work.

Smudges on paper and ink is light when it does copy correctly.

It sounds like your drum unit needs to be replaced. Do the smudges look characteristically like a finger print? Technicians have a rule of thumb. Replace your drum, developer compound and general service the machine as often as you service your car. Assuming you do service your car as often as I do, it should be after every 25,000 copies. If the machine has never been serviced then its time you did.

Poor quality smudge and ink blotting marks in the centre of any printed document

Try performing a test by printing a test page from Tray 1 and open the top cover as soon as the paper is 60% inside. The paper would jam below the toner cartridge before it reaches the fuser. Remove the toner cartridge carefully and verify if the smudges occur. This would eliminate the fuser. If the print quality is fine, then you need to swap the fuser.

Cannon Imageclass printing problem

You need to check your glass first to make sure it has no scratches. Then you can run a copy and open door to stop paper in the center of the machine, b4 it goes through fuser. If line is on copy, you have a bad drum. If not your upper fuser roller is bad.

Laser Printer

When the paper is fresh out of the printer, does the ink that looks okay smudge if you rub it with your finger? If so, it means the fuser is going bad. Otherwise, it's probably a bad toner cartridge that's leaking toner onto the paper.
