    Thanks for you reply. I can't find anything on how to purge the cartidge. The status display box on the 2300 does not have a maintenance tab. What would be the purge steps?

    remove first the cartridge,get a piece of cotton,rub the cartridge where the ink will passby.then after that try to print sample to make sure that its working..please tell me if something wrong again.

    After removing the cartridge u may now use the cotton for rubbing the cartridge make sure that the cartridge are wipe gently,don't apply too much force,because it will damate ur cartridge.Just rub it gently,if the cotton touch in cartridge that's the right idea so that ur cartridge will not damage.

    Do you see a cheap below the cartridge? that's what im talking about,clean it using a piece of cotton.or u may use clothe but rub it gently and soflty.

Minolta magicolor 2300W printer colors are incorrect; color toner levels are 50% or more.

Check that you intalled toners in the correct way, eventually remove cartridges, and repeat toner installing procedure.
Check if it is just a color adjustment problem on printer settings.

Hello. I am getting a message that my yellow toner cartridge is empty and the printer (Konica Minolta 2300W)refuses to print out anything, even though I got it into the B/W mode. The complete message...

It won't print anything if one cartridge is empty, even black when the colour is empty. Are you using new or refilled cartridges? The cartridge has a chip on top that counts your number of prints, so it could feel full, but has reached it's end counter. Try another cartridge. That should solve your problem

There is no error message but the pages come out very weak and the more copies you make the lighter they become

Might be one of these things:

If somebody reset a cartridge back to say it is full at 100% full and the toner is actually running out.

Or you might have a problem with your Transfer Belt, my Transfer Belt on magicolor 2300w was printing weak and faded, as if the print was washed out looking, after a bit of research I removed the Transfer Belt and cleaned it with ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL (it's almost 100% alcohol), replaced the same transfer belt unit and it prints fine again.

Error with Konica Minolta 2300W

Seems like when you changed the toner cartridge, that the cartridge is NOT SEATED PROPERLY when put back in the printer.

Take the cartridge back out and see if the side cover (held in place with one screw) is able to move freely on the cartridge, sometimes it sticks and won't allow the cartridge to run freely in the printer, thus this beeping noise and jamming of cartridge. there is also some small holes (three in total) on the inner side of cartridge (the side that goes in first) sometimes small bits of plastic are still stuck on the holes from manufacturing and you can remove this plastic around the holes with a knife, and give a free path for the cartridge to rotate.

I think its a problem with the cyan (blue) toner...when i print a colour document the printer works but makes a very stranhge (high-ish pitch) noise and the colour which should come out green comes out a...

The Cyan toner cartridge is jammed, it needs to be taken out and try and move the white plastic gear round a bit to free it. It normally is very stiff and wont move much, but if you can move it a fraction that will do. One thing, did you overfill the cartridge with toner? sometimes that will cause them to seize up.
