Question about Minolta magicolor 2400W Laser Printer
Minolta 2400W color laser - was getting replace Magenta error - toner out - error varied. I swapped chips - no change. I removed all cartridges, cleaned all contacts on and off cart, and vacuumed printer.
Now I get a install Cyan error in status and normal flash error/no ready. Swapped yellow and Cyan and still get same error. All contacts - I am aware of - are cleaned. ALSO external ROTATE button doesn't function.
All cart appear properly inserted. Carts have been refilled 2-3 times. Functional for some time after last refill.
GO and get 4 Konicminolta image units one for each color and replace them do not use third party. NEVER ever use a vacuum cleaner the static electricity can cause sensors to go bad !!!!!!!!!!!! might have destroyed the chips on the image units SO recommend get all new hopefully you did not destroy the control board with static electricity

take out all toners and pc drum, use pressure air to clean chip reader under the toner rack (right side) also use some alcohol to clean chips on toners and reinstall.

Order a new "Button", the small part that has 3 contacts that touch each cartridge as they rotate by. It is a small black switch that can be easily accessed by removing all cartridges. It pops out easily, be carefuld not to damage the wires that attach to it. You may find the part at: https://www.nationalparts.com/store/cart/purchase1.asp?pid=6984&XPR=0666058409690586098F076D0B0666058409690589098C076B0B
There is a min. $15.00 charge, so buy 3 of them at $5.00 each, plus shipping, you will spend $28.22 (ground shipping). Works for me!

SOURCE: cartridge not installed message
This worked for me
Each toner cartridge has a small green chip with 3 gold-colored contacts on it. First thing to try is to rub those contacts with an ordinary pencil eraser. You will need to rotate the toner carousel to get to all 4 sets of them. To get it to rotate, there is a little square-ish hole in the white plastic housing to the right of the toner cartridge that is visible when the top cover is raised. Push a pen down in the hole, which will push on a tab allowing you to rotate the toner carousel until you can see the next cartridge. Repeat for all four toner cartridges. Close up the printer, power it up, and see if it solves the problem. If not, do this: Remove the drum (gently pull on the green handle). Be careful not to touch the roller or let it contact anything. Get a flashlight, look down inside the printer on the right (it's kind of hard to see, it's almost under the toner cartridge). You will see a black sensor switch with three wire-like contacts, surrounded by a square white housing. Wipe off those contacts, if you can get the eraser in there better yet. Contacts are kind of flimsy, be VERY careful you do not bend them. Next, take the point of a pencil and push on each contact, it should move in and return when released. If that seems good, put it all back together and try the printer again.

Try to open the blue cover and close it. Then press a few times the "rotate toner" button. After that powerswitch off and on, should run.
If it´s don´t worked, make sure you have every transport secure away from the cartridges.
The contact`s should be clean in Printer and on cartridges.
If still the same prob, start from first tip.
It´s worked by my 2400W feed new toner.
