Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Light printing I received an exchange printer, and after switching the toners, etc., the replacement prints VERY light. It does print well except for the lightness. The toners are displayed as 96% remaning and the drum unit 100%. Any help appreciated. Thanks, Norm

Re: Light printing

I would suggest using the printer's menu and checking both Direct Print->Print Quality and Direct Print->Brightness as these may be set too low or too high. Change these values, 1 at a time, and do a test print to check the print density

first of all maybe your file has a problem. DO NOT CHANGE your toner. Try to print only last page, or copy the content of the last page in the new document and the print it. Sometimes the printer can not recognise some files correctly and that is the major problem

Dumb question. Did you pull the strip from the toner cartidge? OEM or aftermarket? I would try the old cartidge and see if it changes if you don't have the old cartridge anymore I would contemplate replacing the one you just purchased or taking it back to where you purchased it and get an exchange for a defective cartridge.

Printer is printing the black color as light grey. Toner is already exchanged.

When you print something from a website and the print box comes up, click on preferences tab, and when it comes up click on color . Then click on print in grayscale and change the setting from High Quality to Black ink only, click apply at the bottom, then OK. It should print in black ink.

Toner light and error light steady

Remove the toner and shake GENTLY left to right - NOT over your rug or clothes, etc.. shake it lightly from side to side over a garbage can.. what that does is settles the toner and spreads it out so the printer thinks it is not empty.. if that removes the light, keep printing, shaking, printing until you cannot remove the light.. then buy another toner.
