Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2300DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Magicolor 2300DL: prints low on first page, OK subsequent pages

Having no problems for years, now after turning the printer on for the first page the B&W or color printing begins a few inches down from top then fades out on the bottom. Rest of pages are perfect. So, now I end up having to always reprint the first page. Subsequent print jobs work perfectly. Only happens after turning the machine on or waking it up from a long term idle. No media jams or other problems at all. Thoughts?

I spoke to QMS about this since it happened to me. It is the registration roller in the transport unit going bad. Basically the clutch is slipping and they are seeing a lot of it on this model. The first page will slip because the clutch is sticking. , delaying the paper pickup . i also have the accordion problem which is where you are headed. this is where the clutch does not disengage when it is suppose to , causing the paper to fold.
The only solution to this is a new transport unit. It is the entire section in the back.. Looks like a bit of work to rip it out but straight forward.

Transport unit
800-972-6705 - $87

I am going to call and order one next week, I’ll let you know how it works out.

    Just to follow up...

    - For the 2300 / 2350EN Problems with Accordian paper and/or the
    first page dropping I can confirm the solution. It is
    infact the "Transport unit" that is going bad. part # 4131-0360-04 It
    can still be purchased through Konica Minolta ( 800-972-6705) $90
    shipped. I was having both the first page drop and getting the
    accordian looking paper. After replacing the unit my 2350en is like
    brand new again.

    This is not a simple job, you have to break down the whole unit to get
    this out but it is do-able , use the service manual (which can be found
    online) and it will help. Make sure you have a large work area. Hope
    it helps//

Magicolor 2300DL Printer. Blank pages come out. No error message. Toner and Drum are OK

here is my thinking... toner... goes from toner container... via developer to drum... where it gets info and then to paper where it gets placed... and then to fuser where it gets cemented...

if pages are coming out blank... check if toner is full... then check if developer unit is turning... then check if there is an image on the drum... if no image on drum then the charge roller or charge wire is not working....

if you still think all is ok up to this point then check your fuser... if it is cold after your machine is on for five minutes then its blown...

thats how I would check it...

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Magicolor 2300dl ghosting and smear - black only

if only black does that, then it can be black toner, but the best way to find out, print something and when printer starts to take paper open front door, remove waste toner box and take out pc drum and transfer belt and check the printed page from there, if it seems ok, print nex page and open door when page comes out from fusin unit, if quality goes bad before fusing unit, it may lead to 2'nd transfer roller / pc drum and transfer belt quality was ok / if after FU then you have a problem in fusing unit.
