"Was it capable doing that type of work?" - "Yes"
"Is it now?" - It depends entirely on the company that is selling it, and how thorough the machine was refurbished. If this is simply a used machine, bought at an auction, or clearance, you won't be happy. If it is supposedly refurbished, then you're still taking chances if you aren't familiar with the company you're buying from. All machines require maintenance items (consumables) on a regular schedule, and if I am selling a machine, all of these "consumables' are replaced prior to the sale, and I always include a lengthy warranty/service contract. I know far to many people that simply spruce the machine up and do the minimum to make the machine make a nice copy, then take the money and run. Let's say you find a "great deal" on a machine for $1500, and a couple of months later it's determined that the machine requires a full maintenance to be performed. You could easily spend $800 - $1000 on that machine, and you can count on several extra "incidental" service calls due to the lack of service done prior to the sale. So was it still a deal? With the amount of copying you're doing, I recommend a refurbished machine, from a reliable source, with a warranty, and/or (all-inclusive) maintenance contract. Pay a little more for the reliability. Remember that the purchase price on a refurbished machine will be a fraction of the operational costs over several years (based on your volume)- for no other reason than "all machines have a set cost per page" - so look at your long term reliability, because those service costs could be really high, depending on the source.
I hope this helps.

YOU GOT THE BIG ONE!!!!!! Some one tried to copy MONEY on that machine. NOW you will need to get a Konica Minolta Representative out to remove a special chip that will be sent to Konica Minolta then to the SECRET SERVICE. IN the mean time ask the Konica Minolta tech if they have a loaner, your machine is down until the SECRET SERVICE determines what has happen. SORRY the Color copiers are so good these day that they have a small chip that looks for info on currency and shut the machine down. SORRY

C0f30 error minolta photo copy

When was the last time the developer was replaced in the developer unit? If it has been replaced then you might have a bad ATDC (Automatic Toner Density Control) sensor Located right below the developer unit. If the developer was replaced when it was done was a vacuum cleaner used? IF so the static electricity from the vacuum clear destroyed the sensor, NEVER USE a VACUUM cleaner to remove the developer. Also when the developer was replaced, was counter cleared to tell the copier developer was replaced, the copier use the counters to determine certain voltages for certain assemblies, if not image problems and codes can appear. Finally was the F8 run after the developer was installed before any prints or copies made? If not buy new developer and start over, counter is to be cleared first, then developer replaced, then F8 run.

Stabilizing image controller not ran

Stabilizing Image control sounds like a Color copier not a analog b/w copier which the EP 5000/4000 is. What is the model of the machine?
