Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 5430 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

No longer prints in color

Last week it worked fine and now it no longer prints in color. I thought it might be the Mac driver, but it prints in black and white from the test page as well as from a PC. It also makes a horrid noise when it is starting up or preparing to print, not when warming up. That noise seems to be coming from under the right side where the transfer roller is or just above where the wires go to whatever is under the top right where the paper feeds out of the printer. Any suggestions or solutions will be wonderful.

My HP 3015P will no longer print PDF files. This is a new issue. Anyone have a solution?

I'm having the same problem with three networked P3015 printers on a Windows 2003 server. They stopped printing PDF files last week. The universal PS driver from HP works, but it's a pretty ugly solution. I'd like to know why the PCL driver just stopped working.
Btw, we're printing from Acrobat 9.4.2. Word, Excel, and other office printing is fine still.

My hp Color Laserjet 3550 Printer wont print black when it is out of color ink

The 3550 won't print in any color if any of the colors are out. You'll have to replace the color ink that's empty to get it to print.

In the future, if you're just printing black and white, you can select "Print in Grayscale" from the print properties to just use the black ink cartridge, which will help the color cartridges to last longer.

Prints only color ink nothing in black

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Epson 880 not printing in color

Found the answer. For some reason, my computer accepted a Mac driver. It called the printer Epson Stylus COLOR 880 (M). I went back to the original installation disk; thereafter, I had two printers, one without M, one with M, and deleted the M printer. All is working fine now.
