Konica Minolta Magicolor 7450

Hi, I just got my new laser printer and I have installed the software and put everything together, but I keep getting an error message on the printer panel display "cover open side cover" even though the cover is closed. I have checked to see if anything seems to be obstructing the door to cause the error but cannot find any. Please help! Thanks

It will be something not installed correctly like the waste toner box etc or the door switch tab is broken or switch pushed in, look at door to find switch mecanism, cheat with a match in switch to see if switch is at fault. If you just got this machine it will be under warranty probally even onsite ring minolta and check.

also check display doesn't give other instuctions when you do open the side cover

Printer keeps processing - nothing happens - no print

Not really sure about Mac, but if this happens on a PC, I would first uninstall the printer (software-wise) then download the latest drivers and install.
