Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2500W Laser Printer
If one of the cartridges needs to be changed, the printer will recognize this and it will automatically rotate that cartridge to the front of the printer.
Open the panel and follow the instructions that are shown on a sticker on the inside of the access panel. Removing the cartridges is not difficult. They do have a slight groove near the top that acts as a handle. You may have to rotate the cartridge up as you lift it in order to get it to come out. DO NOT FORCE IT. Once again, please consult the sticker on the inside of the access panel for details on cartridge replacement.
If you need to replace more than one cartridge, press the rotate button to rotate the cartridges to the one that needs replacing and repeat the process.
DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE THE SEALING STRIP OUT OF THE NEW TONER CARTRIDGE BEFORE PUTTING IT IN AS THIS TAB CAN AND MOST LIKELY WILL DAMAGE THE PRINTER. (I've seen it happen.)
After you have replaced the toner cartridges properly, the printer should rotate the drum a few times to prime the cartridges. This is normal. You should see a readout on the LCD screen of the toner levels. (You may have to press a few buttons to see the status on them.)
If you need toner cartridges, head to your nearest office supply store such as Staples or Office Depot for replacements. (Staples will price match other stores if you give them proof of the other store's price.) When I last worked with this machine, the cartridges were still kind of expensive...but worth it for the quality that this machine gives you.
Good luck. :)

By pressing the front lever on the top of your machine it will open the top cover....But be very carefull DO NOT tuch the transfer belt (that's the thing who goes with the top cover). It's like a polaroid film....If you make a scratch on this you'll have scratch on every copy!!!!!
The first thing that you'll see on the bottom is the drum unit take it out gently and prepare the new one...Again, be carefull with the drum unit do not tuch the green cylinder(drum it self) and put the new one in the machine close the cover and a cycle of calibration will start...do not interrup this...DONE...

Possibly the paper grip rollers (inside at bottom rear) are waxed and not gripping. Take a small drop of Isopropyl alcohol and wipe the surfaces clean, this usually works.

Firstly buy a black toner refill and a "CHIP". The chip is a small printed circuit carrying a chip, mounted on the top right hand corner of the toner cartridge held in by a small cross point screw. Remove the cartridge and looking at the right end you will see a round (About 3/4 inch dia) plastic bung. Lift this bung out and carefully refill the cartridge (The refill supplier will probably clarify this I am saying). Replace the bung, clean up all the messy dust and remove the old chip replacing it with the new one. Make sure you dont lose the little screw and insert it fully without over turning it. Thereafter all should be OK.
