Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Poor color quality

I recently replaced the printer drum. Not immediately, but over the last couple of weeks, my color quality has degraded. If there is gray on a page that has color, it prints with a pink cast; there are streaks running across the color portions of a brochure I'm trying to print; purple comes out pink. This is driving me insane. I've followed the troubleshooting instructions, which all lead to no improvement. HELP!!

Find out where are the streaks come from, from PC drum, or transfer belt, fusin unit or from toner cartridges. does the trasferbelt and PC drum look okey. finally if nothing is helping, try firmware upgrade and replace printer drivers, sometimes help.

When the paper prints, the color is missing in areas. It looks like a streak mark down the page. The black ink is full color, they yellow and cyan have a white, non-printed streak down the center, and...

Inspect the rollers for dirty or damaged surfaces. Clean up any loose toner or other debris in the machine. Note: avoid touching any roller with bare skin; especially in the fuser section or the photosensitive drum in the toner section. Skin oil can cause poor print quality or premature degradation of the roller surface.

I have hp color laser jet 2600n printer.. but after printing, there have line at the both side left and right on my paper.. the line is about 1cm .. how do i fix the problem.. tq..

If the lines are predominatly one color such as yellow or cyan then you likely have a bad cartridge. If you recently replaced a cartridge that is the one I would check first. You can also just look at the drum of each cartridge (the green roller under the shutter). If there is a problem it will usually show on the drum as well. Cartridges are the biggest issue with these printers, particularily the poor quality of cheap remanufactured cartridges coming from Asia.

Grey background over entire page.

If toner is getting onto the transfer belt, it can only get there by either being put there intentionally, or leaking.

Failure of Transfer Belt is normally degraded print quality - usually poor density, or a failure of the support behind the belt (usually puncturing the belt), and scoring a drum.

Minolta PagePro 1250 poor print quality

It is not cost effective to spend any money repairing an entry level laser printer. Replacing the toner cart or drum is insanity. New B&W lasers equivalent in performance to the 1250w are available on sale for ~ $50. You can get the Samsung ML 2010 for $59 every week on sale. Also the excellent Brother laser. For that matter you can get the a Samsung color laser (CLP-300) for $79 on sale with a $150 rebate.. . Due yourself a favor and get a new printer instead.

The Minolta is a great printer but I bought mine for $50 at Office Max, where they will gladly sell you the drum for $79! Huh?
