I have followed the instructions exactly for replacing the black toner cartridge on my Magicolor 2300 DL, but i still have the error message "Replace Toner Black." I tried taking out the cartridge and...


If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.
2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

10. Remove the protective cover clearly marked 'Remove'.
Each toner cartridge has a colored end that corresponds to a color inside the cartridge slots. Always install the toner cartridge in the slot of the same color.

Replaced Black TOner but still says it is empty


One way you could reset the toner is using the service mode.
Is this printer a 2300w ? If so, open the front door of the printer, turn on and hold down the cancel button for at least 20 seconds, that resets all the counters to factory defaults. The only problem is, that it will set all the toners to 100% and standard capacity, but you can change that in the software. One good thing is, it sets the OPC drum,
Fuser unit, transfer belt, everything to 100%

To Change OPC DRUM UNIT in KONICA MINOLTA 2300 w

Switch Printer Off

Open Front Door Cover

Lift Transfer Belts Blue Knob until it's placed at 11 o'clock. (it's directly behind the waste toner box)

The OPC DRUM UNIT is directly under the BLUE KNOB

SQUEEZE HANDLE and PULL OUT the OPC UNIT

(You can also replace the fuse in the OPC DRUM UNIT and save yourself HUNDREDS on a new one)

Minolta 2300w


color light has nothing to do with this, first try once more to reinstall drivers, if still shows wrong printer, then you have to upgrade firmware, because if you installed the correct mc2300w drivers and status monitor tell you wrong printer there can be 2 things. firmware is broken or printer/computer usb port is broken. so if you can use another usb port or another computer try it or LPT cable. and as a laast thing update firmware.

Cant get the toner replace promt to hightlight so I can replace it. Tried restarting


install status monitor to computer and from there you can choose change toner X and printer turns the cartridges in right place. or if you cant change that way, then under the front cover there is a switch, look the knobs on front cover and find it, it should be upper left corner, then you can rotate the cartridge manually.
