Question about Konica Minolta MAGICOLOR 2300W LASER Printer

Open Question

Print quality on Konica Minolta 2300w faded.

I have a Konica Minolta 2300w Printer for the last 3/4 years, the print quality/density has always been very good, until yesterday, after changing a toner cartridge the problem started, the printed text and images are faded, and the density of solids are as if they are washed out. Firstly the printed sheets had a foggy background, a friend told me to empty the toner recycling box and use a vacuum cleaner to take away any remaining toner from the transfer belt that might have built up, I did this and it helped with the foggy background alot, but still printed faded.

I replaced all c/y/m/k toner cartridges but the problem still exists, the OPC Drum reads at 30%, unfortunely I scratched it a little when taking it out, I have ordered another new one, would this help with image density?

I have checked the setting on the computer for the printer and they are all OK.

Please help if you know how I can fix this problem, as I'm totally lost without this printer, I use it every day for work and that work pile is getting bigger and bigger.

Time has nothing to do with how long a toner cartridge will last. What is the page count on the cartridge?
Don't expect too much from it if it is the original cartridge that came with the printer as they have a very short fill.

I have Minolta 2300W Laser Printer and it folds the first page only about 3 to 4 inches down makes a nice one inch fold but take that out and print again...next page fine.....now printing with two wide...


The is blocked by dust on the side of the paper on the image unit that would have color associated with the print. Remove all the image units and clean all the laser glass. Replace those image units also if streaking as for the paper ensure correct paper side and media type.

WHAT IS DENSITY SENSOR IN LASERJET 8500


The Density Sensor is located inside the right upper door and senses the colour calibration pattern for each colour formed on the transfer drum during a calibration cycle. Press GO. Print a configuration page and then troubleshoot as an Image-quality problem as instructed in the user manual. Check the transfer guide for cracks and replace if necessary. Check the event log for errors numbered 54.00.0<X> the X indicates, 5-sensor abnormality, 4-Cyan, 3-Magenta, 2-Yellow, 1-Black. The last 3 error codes should be seen on the Configuration page.

Bad photo quality after changing drum


your laser printer
1) print color quality is now distorted that means print skew (technician called)
2) print tint means the print color not enough density,
3) print mottle means print dirty
you may try
1) print distorted--- find out the skew adjustment from your printer manu, it is adjust the image before transfer to the drum.
2) print skew could be happened when the drum replace install not very accurate, so install it more carefully.
3) print tint---you may increase print density from the manu, not fix,
4) print tint---the toner caridge near life cycle or using the less compatible toner. so you have change the quality toner or cartridge (if near life cycle) to improve quality photo print
5)print mottle---toner quality ? or cartridge near life cycle also cause print dirty paper,

Light printing


I would suggest using the printer's menu and checking both Direct Print->Print Quality and Direct Print->Brightness as these may be set too low or too high. Change these values, 1 at a time, and do a test print to check the print density
