Question about Minolta magicolor 2400W Laser Printer

1 Answer

Konika Minolta 2400W can not connect. Clearly Windows XP sees it, and the driver is installed etc. When I plug or unplug the USB cable, Windows plug 'n play notices the difference. And the USB cable works for other devices. But I can not print to it. The monitoring software complains "Power OFF/Communication Error/Wrong Printer". The Printer self test worked just fine from the monitoring software which DID work when I first installed it, just hours ago, but failed when I first attempted to print from notepad.

Everytime you disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to a different port, unfortunately, Windows creates a new and distinct copy of the printer. You can see this by looking at the Windows Printers folder. The solution is when you change around USB ports, right click on the printer icon that is actually the active one (the other copies will be grayed out) and Set to Default. Then you can delete the other invalid copies. Then in the Minolta status software, go to the Display menu and Select Printer to change which printer is monitored to the correct copy. It's very stupid that Windows Plug n' play does this, but it does. So avoid change around USB ports on your Konika Minolta printer.

Tip

USB devices not recognised or not working properly?


Try these steps to reinitialize your usb ports on your pc

1. Unplug ALL USB devices connected to the computer. If you are using a USB mouse and keyboard, temporarily use the older type PS/2 devices if you have them, if you don't then just leave them connected.

2. Hold down the windows key and press r

3. Type devmgmt.msc into the run menu and press ok

4. Click on the + sign next to the Universal Serial Bus Controllers

5. You might need another mouse to do this if you have a usb mouse.. I recommend you get a ps2 connector mouse which goes into the green round connector in the back of your pc.

6. Right click and uninstall first the usb root hubs. all of them then uninstall the rest of the devices you see under Universal serial bus controllers

7. Ones you have uninstalled everything you should see the Universal serial bus controllers there at all.

8. Now go ahead and restart your pc.

9. Ones you have restarted the pc your usb ports will reinstall in a moment stand by while it installs all of them. If you get warning messages click ok or continue installation.

10. Now go ahead and plug the usb devices back in. Install software if required, all usb devices if not faulty or broken should work now. Also note the error code if you get one?

This solution doesn't fix all usb problems so if you have a yellow ! mark there and device status reports a error code. Then it might not be a problem with your usb ports.

Thank you for reading, do leave suggestions, comments, feedback below.

VERTICAL LINES ON KONIKA 2400


If the line is white (no toner is added in that area) check the laser head glass which is located right below the drum. Remove the drum and you should see it below a narrow strip of glass. Just be sure to be clean, with no dirt, toner or pieces of paper on it.

Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400W -- Only Prints on Reboot!


I've had that problem before too, and found out that there were copies of the printer that had somehow installed themselves on my computer. All I needed to do was to choose to print with "konica minolta copy 1" instead of the one that I *thought* was installed and it worked. I then deleted the original printer and just stuck with the copy.

Magicolor 2400w Bad print quality and white lines


The solution for the white line problem in the 2400W is to clean the laser lens.
Take out the drum and wipe the laser lens with a soft clean cloth.
Replace drum and carry on.
I had to do it twice before I removed the speck of dirt that was causing this.
