Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2300DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Transfer Roller Initial printing appears to begin printing 10% down the page (the last few lines lost). Later, I get frequent transfer roller jam messages even when the page is 99% out of the printer but the printout is garbled. Once it starts working then it appears to be OK. The printer is well-ventilate and normally in Standby Mode for extended periods. Do I need to clean the rollers with a special solution? The Drum Unit reportedly is only 34% used. Thanks in advance for your help

Hi
my mate's printer had a similar problem, the machine let us down on important occasions. one of his mates suggested that he switch off the printer when not in use and not use standby very often. then the frequency of the problem gradually reduced. eventually he moved on to other place, but this problem reminded me of that the situation.

cheers

Hp 4015 printing line down leftside of paper


Most Lines down the page will be caused by the following:
1: The Drum of the all-in-one toner cartridge has a scratch on it.
Solution: Replace the cartridge.
2: The transfer roller is dirty. If you do not have a toner towel, use an unused coffee filter and lightly rub the transfer roller clean. DO NOT USE ANY LIQUID OF ANY KIND ON THE TRANSFER ROLLER!!!
If the line remains, consider replacing the transfer roller.
3: The Laser window has dirt on it and is blocking the laser from striking the drum at that spot. Clean the laser window with a clean unused coffee filter.

Faded side of page


It sounds like you have a bad charge transfer roller. This roller is located below the toner cartridge. Open the top and remove the toner. Look under where the toner come out from, you will see a black roller that goes from side to side. The roller should be black, if it appears gray or white that it is worn and is can not transfer the charge properly to the paper so the toner does not transfer either so you get faded print. Do not touch the roller with your bare fingers because the oils on your fingers will damage the roller. You can ge the transfer roller as a part or in a maintenance kit with the paper pickup rollers. It is best to install the maintenance kit if your printer is over a few years old and has not had it installed already. The maintenance roller kit is available here: http://www.ccl-la.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=172

Cp3525 lines on left


This is most likely to be a toner cartridge issue. Either a leaking cartridge or one with damage on the roller of the drum. This is especially likely if it occurred just after changing a toner.

If however the transfer belt of this printer is easily accessible from your printer (I am not massively familiar with this model) it may be worthwhile wiping this down gently with a clean piece of kitchen tissue. This will look like a foot wide sheet of plastic wrapped around two rollers.

Lastly it could be a small roller with residual toner toner powder on it that is repeating down the page. This could be hard to track down, but much like the transfer belt this will get flushed out with continued printing anyway.

Error code 917.00


Step Action 1 Turn off the printer and let the printer sit, powered off, for one minute. 2 Power the printer back on. 3 If the 917 error does not return on power-up, try printing a few pages. If the error does not return during printing, this may have been an isolated incident. Continue using the printer as before, but pay close attention to it for the next few days to see if the error returns. 4
If the error returns on power-up, as soon as you try to print, or re-appears at a later time, inspect the transfer roller. (Click the links in the steps below for images.)

  1. Turn the printer off.

  2. Open both the lower front cover and the upper front cover of the printer.

  3. Remove the toner cartridge and place it aside.

  4. Look at the transfer roller. Make sure nothing is stuck on the roller or wrapped around it. If you find any obstruction, try your best to remove it without damaging the transfer roller or knocking the roller loose.

  5. Make sure the transfer roller is not loose or damaged. If the roller is damaged, the roller will need to be replaced. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local authorized service provider for further assistance.

  6. Spin the transfer roller. Make sure it spins freely.

  7. If the transfer roller appears to be fine, reinstall the toner cartridge and power the printer back on.

  8. Try printing again to see if the error message returns.

If the 917 error still will not clear, or if the error continues to occur intermittently, the printer will likely require service. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local authorized service provider for further assistance. See Contacting Lexmark below for more information.

This can be any of rthe following depending on the position iof the lines on the page. You need to establishe the position of the lines relative to the top of each page and this determines which of the following component will cause the problem

Dirty or damaged developer roller.
Dirty or damaged charging roller.
Dirty or damaged cleaning roller.
Dirty or damaged developer DSD wheels. These wheels are located on the outer ends of the color toner cartridge and appear as a black bushing.
Dirty or damaged transfer roller.
Dirty or damaged transfer drum.

All of them need inspecting and cleaning

Lexmark t644 error code 917.00


This error indicates that there is a charging problem with the transfer roller. You could start by cleaning the contacts for the transfer roller (power off printer first). The transfer roller is the black foam-like roller under the toner cartridge. Handle it with paper because the oils on your hand could damage it. To remove it, just pry under the far left side with a screwdriver. Lift and pull to the left to remove. If this does not fix it, then you have a more serious problem. It could be one of the arms or the HVPS.

Transfer roller usage message on Phaser 7700. replaced..still wont print


I found the answer here: http://office.support.xerox.com/SRVS/cgi-bin/webcgi.cgi

Resetting Transfer Roller Life
  • Resetting the transfer roller life is to be performed only if the Transfer Roller Assembly was defective and or the assembly is replaced before an end of life or near end of life message. Not to extend the life of the assembly. Doing so may cause premature failure of other internal printer components.

  • The printer will prompt the user to reset the life counts if the assembly is replaced after receiving a Replace Transfer Roller or Replace Transfer Roller Soon message.
note_image33x30.gif    Note: If the main Menu does not appear on the front panel screen and only Replace Transfer Roller is displayed, there may be a print job that is either processing or currently printing. Try the following steps to clear the print jobs and reset the Transfer Roller life:
  1. Press the cancel button several times to flush processing jobs from the printer.

  2. If you do not receive access to the front panel menu by doing this, power off the printer and disconnect Ethernet, parallel or USB cable from the printer.

  3. Turn the printer back on, and while it is powering up, immediately start pushing the cancel key repeatedly until you receive access to the front panel menu.

  4. If the printer menu appears on the front panel screen, follow the instructions below to reset the Transfer Roller life if the printer did not prompt you to reset it:


  1. With Menus highlighted press OK.

  2. Press the Down Arrow and scroll to Supplies Info Menu.

  3. Press OK.

  4. Press the Down Arrow and scroll to Exit at the bottom of the menu tree.

  5. Now scroll up to Reset Transfer Roller Life.

  6. Press OK.

  7. Reset Transfer Roller NOW is displayed.

  8. Press OK to reset the transfer roller life.

Most of the time when I find this happening on a printer, not just Ricoh's it turns out to be the PCU (photo conductor unit). The color PCU is one unit and the black is a seperate unit. Hope this helps.
