I need to print photographic (jpg or tif) reference sheets (from Photoshop CS3) on my Magicolor 6100. Every setting I try produces very dark prints. Where can I find straightforward, non-expert information (my manuals haven't helped!) Can anyone point me to simple instructions please. Ralph

Re: Print Photographs on Minolta Magicolor 6100
do you have any options within the printer or software program itself, to give you options to lighten-darken output ?
Or perhaps changing the resolution settings May Help You.
Also try to print a test page in printer preferences, to eliminate the printer itself.

To replace the print cartridges 1. Make sure the HP All-in-One is on. Caution If the HP All-in-One is off when you open the print cartridge door to access the print cartridges, the HP All-in-One will not release the cartridges for changing. You might damage the HP All-in-One if the print cartridges are not docked safely on the right side when you try to remove them. 2. Open the print cartridge door. The print carriage moves to the far right side of the HP All-in-One. 3. Wait until the print carriage is idle and silent, and then lightly press down on a print cartridge to release it. If you are replacing the tri-color print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the left. If you are replacing the black or photo print cartridge, remove the print cartridge from the slot on the right. 4. Pull the print cartridge toward you out of its slot. 5. If you are removing the black print cartridge in order to install the photo print cartridge, store the black print cartridge in the print cartridge protector or an airtight plastic container. If you are removing the print cartridge because it is low or out of ink, recycle the print cartridge. The HP Inkjet Supplies Recycling Program is available in many countries/regions, and lets you recycle used print cartridges free of charge. For more information, go to the following website: www.hp.com/hpinfo/globalcitizenship/environment/recycle/inkjet.html 6. Remove the new print cartridge from its packaging and, being careful to touch only the black plastic, gently remove the plastic tape by using the pink pull tab. 7. Slide the new print cartridge forward into the empty slot. Then gently push on the upper part of the print cartridge forward until it clicks into the socket. If you are installing the tri-color print cartridge, slide it into the left slot. If you are installing a black or photo print cartridge, slide it into the right slot. 8. Close the print cartridge door 9. If you installed a new print cartridge, the print cartridge alignment process begins. 10. Make sure you have plain paper loaded in the input tray, and then press OK. 11. The HP All-in-One aligns the print cartridges. Recycle or discard the print cartridge alignment sheet. 12. Press OK.
Newer printers usually have either a separate cartridge or a feeder area for inserting envelopes. If not, you may be able to slide the tray guides in so envelope does not move around when being fed into printer. Feed like normal sheet of paper.
Your word processing software should be able to help you choose what kind of envelope to print on.
Check that your black ink cartridge has ink inside, eventually try a new cartridge , as ink may have dried up in old cartridge. If you use a new cartridge ensure you removed cellotape from cartrige. If cartridge is ok, then it is printer nozzle/head for black ink. In this case do nozzle check / head cleaning in printer tools a couple of times. If problem persist you may need to check and clean printer's head with cotton and solvent.
Usually anomalies of this kind on the print output indicates that the printer is overdue for a maintenance cycle. This is due to the usual operating wear and tear the printer experiences during it's life cycle.
Seeing as how this could be an expensive operation, I suggest we first eliminate problem with the printer driver as the cause of the anomalous print output. To do this I need you to reinstall the printer on your PC using the latest drivers:
Install the printer using the newly downloaded driver
If reinstalling the printer using the latest print driver doesn't result in a solution to the print output problem, we can deduce that the problem is caused by a hardware component. To solve the hardware related problem you will need to either perform the maintenance cycle yourself or take the printer to a computer repair shop so a IT technician can do it for you. This process involves buying a maintenance kit (which contain replacement components for the printer), and replacing the components according to the maintenance kit manual.
Hope you find this information helpful in solving your printer related problem
The Konica Minolta 7145 have two different companies that made the print controller. If you have an older KM 7145 then you need the old Peerless Legacy driver. It's not on KonicaMinolta's website. You can use HP 5Si driver, but you won't have and of the options (ie finisher, fax, lcc).
Ok well i'm a little confused on this one also, i presume you are referring to a HP printer and the message is displayed.
Try this and let us know if it makes sense to you.
There's a section in your Users Guide about this message.
It will appear on your printer when one or more print head(s) are not
performing optimally, so it needs to make extra passes to maintain print
quality. You can eliminate the message by:
1. Selecting a higher print quality
2.Cleaning print heads (also see RECOVER print heads)
3.Use the Image Diagnostic Print to identify which print head is causing the problem
