Konica Minolta Magicolor 2430 DL - Paper Feeding problem and Clicking Sound

Hi All

As I've explained, my printer makes a clicking noise (meaning a mechanical problem) and the printer fails to feed heavy paper although it could before. Any ideas what should I look first (apart from looking for a new printer)?

Right now, i dont know about the cliking noise, there can be many things causing this. but for hevy paper open cover, take out PC drum, under that there is a take-up roller, pull the little knob in right side and then move it to the right side, then you can pull out the take-up roller, then clean the roller and the plate, whats under the roller. installit back. if thats not helping, then you have to take the roller out again, and cut off two plastic sides.
it shoult help.

    I can just about guarantee that your "Waste Toner" container is FULL! I had the exact same problem, changed it out, and it stopped immediately

X5650 Unrecoverable scan error. Does not feed the paper.


Hi,
that sounds more like a mechanical issue. You might want to call Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK about the problem. Hope your printer is still within warranty. Hope this helps.

5300 won't load 8 1/2x 11 photo-weight paper.


''grabber'' roller out of work sometimes, you may try
1) there is a input paper sensor around roller, the roller out of runing if the sensor is not senitive enough or sensor switch dirty,
clean the sensor as you can find it,
2) Lighter-weight paper feeds and prints fine, which means this paper input sensor works ok, but you need to make sure they are same paper input sensor,.
3) the paper surface bright and the roller worn could be cause paper feed fail, you need clean the roller anyway. still not fixed, you need to adjust the roller pressure by increase the spring force.`

Printer paper reloading


So the feeder woek sometimes, If you have a warranty, bring it back, if not , the printer might have something stuck in his mechanism or a bit of spread ink, open it and check for any weird thing, you can do some cleaning but the mechanism need some greassy spot so do not be too clean
then try a recommanded paper for the printer like 80g for example and no more than 30 new pages to begin.
You can test the printer when open, you just need to push a few switch or button to make it run also you will be able to see where the noise come from.

top feeder for the scanner (on my x6570) had a loose piece of rubber stuck between the feed wheels. The rubber is part of the guiding mechanism that guides the paper to the feed wheels. Remove rubber strip and reattach it where it belongs.

Won't feed paper


when you say ''heavy weight'' do you mean thin card etc.
Most printers dont like to use thicker paper. does it make a noise. like gears slipping or crunching when it is trying to feed. if this is the case, then the feed gears maybe worn.

Brother MFC - 7420: Paper will not feed!


Does it make the same sound if you feed the single sheet through the bypass with the paper drawer removed? I hate to say it, but your printer's paper feed mechanism may need replaced. Go to http://www.brother-usa.com/AskUs/default.aspx and ask Brother to diagnose this one; I think they'll confer with me and should be able to point you to a nearby Brother-authorized repair center. Let me know what happens!
