    I'm sorry, you are talking to someone who gets flustered. How do I get to or find 'status display'? Thanks.

    Sorry, but I must have downloaded a driver for this printer, I can't find any software for it, if that could happen. On the previous person's solution, there was a reply about a button on the printer that would free the cartridge carousel, is that still an option? Again, I'm stupid, I know.

  • nbrawdy Jun 14, 2009

    I'm sorry, I am having issues downloading. On May 16th, there was an answer to someone with this same issue. The response was there is a button on the printer that would release the cartridge carousel. I know what color needs replaced, is there some way on the printer I can get to that color?

  • nbrawdy Jun 14, 2009

    That link was for 're-manufacturing' a cartridge.

  • nbrawdy Jun 15, 2009

    Go ahead and process the credit card for this. I find it hard to believe that there is no physical way on the printer to resolve this. All I need to do is get the toner carousel to revolve so I can change the proper cartridge.

Hi

Please follow these instructions to install the toner cartridge in your Konica minolta 2300W laser printer--


Caution: If the current cartridge you are using is a 4500K cartridge, and you forget to reset the printer panel, you will probably get a premature message that reads 'low' or 'empty' or 'replace'.

1. Open the Status Display and check which toner color is empty. Then, choose “toner replace” from the print menu.

2. Select the color of the cartridge you need to replace from the color list box.

3. Select the cartridge capacity (1500 or 4500). Then, click “OK”.

4. When you see the toner indicator on the control panel flashing, open the printer front cover and the carousel will reposition automatically so that the appropriate cartridge can be removed.

5. Take the cartridge from the tow holes in its front and pull it straight out about 6”. Then use your left hand to help pull out the cartridge.

6. Unwrap the new toner cartridge from its package.

7. Remove the sealing tape.

8. Check the colored end of every cartridge to be replaced since this corresponds to a color inside the toner cartridge slots. Install the cartridge in the slot of the same color.

9. Take the cartridge with your left hand and put the thumb and index finger of your right hand into the two holes in the front of the cartridge. Then insert it, making sure that the guides on the cartridge fit into the rails in the carousel. Push the new cartridge gently into the machine.

10. Then, close the printer front cover. The machine will run a calibration cycle which lasts 150 seconds after replacing any consumable. If the cover is opened before the “ready” indictor on the control panel light up and the error indicator turns off, the machine will stop and repeat this cycle.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

All you do is press the multi color button for the carousel with the cover closed and it will rotate one position, each time you close the door and press the button it rotates one position.

How do you change out the black toner?


If you can not rotate the toners by using the DISPLAY MENU,

You can rotate them MANUALLY, using a flat head screwdriver or even a key for your car or front door.

Open Front Cover/Door of Printer

Remove Waste Toner Box

Where you see the side of the Blue Cartridge, look to the LEFT and locate a small rectangle with a circle inside it.

Push your car key or flat head screwdriver into this rectangle and the circle will push back and release the lock on the cartridge, holding in with one hand and turning cartridge with the other hand until you get the cartridge you want to replace.

Remove the screwdriver / car key and pull out the empty cartridge and replace with new one.

Replace Waste Toner Box, close front cover/door, switch on and the printer will rotate back itself to it's normally position...... JOB DONE

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.

2300-2.gif9. Remove the new toner cartridge from its shipping carton.

Replcing the black toner on the Minolta Magic color 2300w


You can press the 'rotate toner' button which is the blue one next to the toner indicators on the top panel or you can open it up and with two hands on either side of the entire cartridge, turn it manually. You will hear clicking sounds as you turn it. I've done this safely replacing all four toners twice over now.

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%

How do I change black toner? Blue is accessible but how do I get it to rotate?


I have opened and closed the front door a number of times so that the cartridges rotate to different positions. It's trial and error until the right color is in the position to be changed.

Help replaceing a toner


Here is what you do.... turn off the power, open the door to access the toner cartridges. You'll see the access port to pull the cartridge out. There will be a small picture to the top left showing to use your two fingers to pull it out. Between the pic and the opening there is a square hole with a round plastic tube in the center of it. Take a car or house key and stick it in the hole. When you do, you can now rotate the cartridges by sticking your finger in the individual cartridge holes. Rotate the cartridges until to can freely pull out the one that needs to be replaced. Put the new one in, close the door, turn on the printer... Ta-DA!!
