How to reset Black Toner Empty Message on 2430Dl


A while back I had an issue with my 2430DL and instead of fixing it I just bought a used printer on Ebay. The toner on my bad printer was new (95%) so now the toner on the new printer from Ebay has ended and I just replaced the toner with the toner from my bad printer.

My issue is the printer does not calculate the toner life from the new cartridges from my old printer. It still gives me the message toner empty black which is annoying. I changed the setting to continue printing so I am still able to print.

Is there a way that I can get the printer to calculate from the existing toner on the cartridges or at least reset them to new since all 4 toner cartridges from my old printer are pretty new (95%).

Re: How to reset Black Toner Empty Message on 2430Dl

There are many problems like that and its not recommended to change toner from one printer to another.
but you should try: put the old toner (emty) in again, then turn off the printer, change toner and turn on printer again.
if thats not helping, then maybe you have a old FW so you can try to update the firmware.

Minolta 2430dl, cyan, magenta, and yellow toner cartridges all show empty. Black shows 42% remaining. How do I get printer to print?

Some printers will refuse to print _anything_, until you replace/refill _all_ of the empty toner cartridges. So, replace/refill.

Manually changing the toner

You can open the machine and use a pen or screwdriver to press the carousel release. Then rotate the carousel to access the cartridge to be swapped.

There is only a manual reset for the toners but I'm sure you already knew that... The drum is just a plug-n-play type consumable and should just reset automatically unless it's an old drum... ( make sure that you didnt make the mistake like so many of us a reput the old drum back in again) if your sure its the new one then it's obviously defective and depending on where you got it you should be able to defect it out for credit... hope this helps...

Toner Cartage

Really Magicolor 2430DL is a very worst printer in this world.
within 2 months drum cartridge finish - no other printer like this type of option - like black, color & durm cartridge.

I will recommend - not to go for the thirdclass cartridge. go for only HP.

You need to clean the printer. See your manual for instructions. It is probably dust on the laser lens
