2 Answers

Printer problem I have a Konica Minolta Magicolor 5430DL printer connected to a Dell laptop running Windows Vista but I cannot get it to print. Every time I send something to print I get a window pop up that says print to file but it will not print whether I save the file or not

    Solution for "print to file" problems with Konica printer & Windows Vista;



    Vista defaults the Konica printer to "print to file" when the printer is connected so the user has to

    1) go to the "control panel" in Vista

    2) choose "printers"

    3) choose "ports"

    4) change the default port from "print to file" to "USB"



    this fixed my problem, I hope this helps someone it only took me 12 months to figure it out..

Hi,

You have tried a couple of times for Live Session but for some reason, the "Conversation is closed or you can not access this conversation." always shows up.

Perhaps another expert has responded, perhaps the site is too busy or for whatever reason if you still need assistance you could also try the Premium Solution.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I think I had a chat with you , here is trancription:

You are now in session with bazza1963
ginko says:
hi

ginko says:
are you there?

ginko says:
seems you need to re-install driver softwar for your printer, do you have printer disks? and which version of operative system are you using (Windows XP, Vista, etc)

ginko says:
I will try to find drivers for windows, give me some minute

ginko says:
Here is Driver download page for your printer, start downloading the one for for your system:

ginko says:
www.qms.com

ginko says:
Here is installation guide, same as the one provided with printer: ftp://ftp.minolta-qms.com/pub/cts/out_going/manuals/5430dl/ig54dl.pdf

ginko says:
ftp://ftp.minolta-qms.com/pub/cts/out_going/manuals/5430dl/ig54dl.pdf

ginko says:
download the above driver software.

ginko says:
is the same as the one distributed in disk coming with printer , if you have the disk you can use the disk

ginko says:
Once you downloaded software do the following:

ginko says:
1 disconnect printer from PC

ginko says:
2 expand and install downloaded software, alternatevely use the disk provided with the printer. Do this with printer disconnected.

ginko says:
3 when asked from installation, or after installation, connect the printer to your computer using the USB cable , not the network (ethernet) cable

ginko says:
4 the printer will be recognised in Windows, if it does not restart the PC

ginko says:
You must use an usb cable to use this printer as a local printer.

ginko says:
You may need a router to use the ethernet cable (one similar to thick phone cable) provided with the printer

ginko says:
therefore ensure you are using the right cable

ginko says:
here is an example of usb cable, sometimes it is not provided with the printer, have a look,. This is the right cable you need to use to connect this printer to local computer, the other one is for network www.amazon.co.uk-

ginko says:
check on www.amazon.co.uk how it looks like and ensure you are using the right one

ginko says:
let me know if you need further help, I am not receiving much feedback from you

ginko says:
Best regards

ginko says:
Also check under printers in vista that you have this printer installed and that it is the default print

I could not get any feedback from you , do not know if there was something wrong with chat software

regards

Konica Minolta 5430DL second tray - print dialogue


This needs to be setup through the computer using the printer properties, not through the printer. You will need to be the local admin to make the changes. You may also have to go under advance and manual specify the tray and component types. The printer will not allow you to set options for trays and components that are not enabled or detected. Let me know if you need a step-by-step.

I've had that problem before too, and found out that there were copies of the printer that had somehow installed themselves on my computer. All I needed to do was to choose to print with "konica minolta copy 1" instead of the one that I *thought* was installed and it worked. I then deleted the original printer and just stuck with the copy.
