Question about Konica Minolta Magicolor 2530 DL Laser Printer

Konika Minolta 2430 DL won't let me print

I have plenty of black toner that I would like to use on an important print. But my printer tells me that because it is low on yellow toner, it will not print. Is there a way to bypass this annoying feature of my printer so I can print?

Look through the menus on the printer for a setting for "Low Toner" -- the choices of what to do are usually either "continue" or "stop" or something similar (my 2430DL has this option setting) -- set this option to "Continue".
My 15 year old HPs also have a similar setting. However, this will keep it printing when the black runs out, so you will need to check your print production run visually as you go along to make sure the quality is what you need

No. sorry. Your printer mixes all colors for all prints.

Contrary to the previous solution, laser printers do not mix colors. However, the answer is still no. If you are pressed, there are two things you can do temporarily.

First, to squeeze out just a little more life from the yellow toner you can resettle the toner. Remove the yellow toner cartridge, hold it horizontally, and shake end-to-end. This might even rectify a false reading of low toner for the cartridge. It does this by loosening any possible clumps in the remaining toner and reactivating the static charge between the particles.

Second, add black toner to the yellow toner cartridge. This will obviously mess up any colored print consisting of any mixture of yellow while the black toner is in there. But, it will allow you to print until you can replace or empty and properly refill the yellow toner cartridge.

2408 means that the toner cartridge you are trying to rotate to is already in the top position or you need to install another toner cartridge before you can rotate to the color you want to replace.

To fix the toner not installed message clean the three contacts on green chip on the right side of the toner cartridge. You may see black lines on them. Use an eraser or rubbing alcohol.

Toner Cartage


Really Magicolor 2430DL is a very worst printer in this world.
within 2 months drum cartridge finish - no other printer like this type of option - like black, color & durm cartridge.

I will recommend - not to go for the thirdclass cartridge. go for only HP.

thanks
