Either the toner bottle may have come out a bit, or the toner has become clogged / compacted.

This series copier was notorious for the toner chute / delivery system getting clogged / compacted with toner. Given the fact that the machine was recently transported, this is a very good possibility.

First check the toner bottle, and make sure it's pushed / locked all the way in. You will feel a "click" when the bottle is seated properly.

If it IS locked in, and the noise continues, DO NOT CONTINUE TO RUN MACHINE!!

A clogged / toner chute will undertone the system in a very short amount of time, and will result in a service call being needed, and possibly damaged to internal parts. In severe cases where customers continued to run them, main controls boards have been damaged due to increased loads on the toner / developer drive motors.

Unfortunately, to remedy the problem, you will need to place a call for a tech to come and clean / vacuum out the toner chute / delivery system.

My printer is new, when I am printing /photocopying and even printing default test page, the print output is very light in the way where one cannot see. Please help, i am stuck on my first day


Go into the printer properties and set the default on the print type you want. It sounds as if you are printing in "Draft" mode which saves ink.

When printing, if I select any other form of paper than "Plain Paper", e.g. "Photo Glossy Paper", the print (of a photo) comes out with a distinct Magenta overhue. The true colours are...


Hello Landscapeman ,

You need to specify the paper type when the print dialog box appears. Heavy glossy paper needs to spend more time in the fuser so that the toner is fixed.

When printing black, the first page comes out in clear black, however subsequent pages are printed in red. In doing a second document the same thing occurs.


Be sure to update your printer drivers with the newest (correct) manufacturer's drivers.

Also, make sure when you print a document you are printing in greyscale. Otherwise, you're wasting your color cartridge. Speaking of which I would try another set of cartridges, and aligning them using the software that came with your printer. Your color cartridge could be malfunctioning.

I want to buy; Konica 7020 "FaxKit FK-101". Where can I buy it????


Hello Ttisdale,
Online auction sites (I just found a couple on eBay), online classifieds (such as Craigslist), local classifieds/fliers, and I'm sure you could call local Office Equipment/Repair Shops near you and should be able to locate one that way.
I hope this helps.

Hi there,

I opened the printer, and pushed gently on the lever that holds/releases the print head, and this seemed to release whatever was stuck. After this the print head moved freely on turning on the printer/copier.
