I installed a refilled cartridge which has been leaking black toner and making a mess on my printing. When I tried to remove it I was unable to turn the lock on the right all of the way up to the unlock position. In consequence I am unable to remove the bad cartridge from the printer. Any ideas please?

I would not advise you to refill a toner cartridge becausethe toner powder is very fine and you do not want to breath in this tonerpowder.
You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer.
This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter.
A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.
The problem is the toner cartridge. Try to replace new cartridge. The toner cartridge is damage. If you are refilling the toner cartridge, you didn't return the part correctly especially the roller drum it not correctly place making him print out prints all black page.
Shop for the appropriate refill kit. When purchasing a refill kit, double-check to be sure that the toner in the kit is compatible with the toner required for your model of Konica Minolta printer.
Empty the old printer cartridge. Be sure to completely empty the printer cartridge that you plan to refill. A compressed air can is ideal for this purpose and can be purchased online or at most office supply stores.
Remove the plug. The cartridge plug may be covered by a colored end plate, depending upon the model of your Konica Minolta printer. Simply unscrew the end plate, and then remove the plug. If using a screwdriver to remove the plug, be careful not to puncture the plug, as this will cause the toner to leak out of the cartridge and into your printer.
Refill the printer cartridge. Shaking the powder in the refill toner bottle before attempting to pour it into the cartridge will cause it to pour much more easily. Do not squeeze the bottle, but allow the toner to simply pour out. Replug the cartridge, and gently shake or rock it back and forth two or three times to evenly distribute the toner powder inside the cartridge.
Check for leaks. Before returning the cartridge to the printer, check the outside of the cartridge for any powder particles that may have spilled or leaked during the refill process. Wipe the particles off the cartridge, and gently shake it once more to check again for leaks. If no powder particles appear, then it should be safe to return the cartridge to the printer.
Return the cartridge to the printer. Once you have refilled the printer cartridge and have checked for leaks, you may now return it to the printer. Go to your printer properties/settings and select the option to indicate that a new printer cartridge has been installed. Print a sample page to check print quality

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.
Turn of the printer and remove each color toner cartridge and shake it good before putting it back in place, Turn it back on and then it should work. Also you might need to reset your toner cartridges. I found that information at UNI-KIT (toner refill people, reset the counter (Reset Gear)). I just refilled one and found out the hard way that there was a lot of toner left in the cartridge. Also I found that by turning the power on and off that will make it print for a while.
remove all the toner cartridges and then u need to clean the dirt collected in the printer.you can blow air with a blower machine.then shake the cartridges up side down for few minutes and then insert 1 by 1.it will work.
the problem is either the dirt/dust collected in the printer or the cartridges are got over and needs refilling or replacement.
1. Make sure that you removed the entire paper jam and that nothing is caught in the fuser assembly (the part that gets hot so make sure it is cooled off first,also do not use anything to dig at anything that might be there try carefully using a tweezer or needle nose pliers to pull it out. 2.Remove the toner cartridge and with a dry cloth or a pencil eraser clean off the contacts on your left when facing the inside of printer and the roller on the bottom can be wiped off to remove excess toner. 3.With toner cart. still out use a dry cloth to wipe the laser print head area located directly above the roller on the bottom of the printer be careful as the metal edges are sharp. 4.If there is a build-up of toner at the entrance of the fuser try gently removing it with a flat blade screwdriver with care. 5.If this doesn't help it may be necessary to replace the toner cartridge itself.
