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

SOURCE: Error flashing, Status 'Put Cyan Toner' - but toner showing 100%

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:

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.

SOURCE: The ERROR light of my Minolta magicolor 2400W

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.

Error light

What kind of error....blinking light which lights are blinking..or is it a code 17h or something like that.....please clarify for me. thank you....whytfang. In the mean time you might take all of the cartridges out and make sure they are in correctly and none are damaged...and then clean the circuit boards and the reading board under the cartridges, then reinstall them and turn the printer back on...if not fixed try again and take care with the reading is delicate...and the chips should be blown clean with pressurized the canned spray used to clean keyboards or other delicate computer components. Try this in the meantime and send me the other info...good luck.

The only way to reset the toner error is to replace the counter chip on the toner cartridge. These should go for about $10 a piece. Otherwise, you can set the engine to continue on error, and ignore the blinking light. Better yet, I put a piece of electrical tape over it. You can still read the status on the LED's, but not have your wife complain about it. Saves you $40.

Error 2408

2408 means that the toner cartridge you are trying to rotate to is already in the top position or you need to install another toner cartridge before you can rotate to the color you want to replace.

To fix the toner not installed message clean the three contacts on green chip on the right side of the toner cartridge. You may see black lines on them. Use an eraser or rubbing alcohol.

Toner problems

A couple of suggestions. 1. make sure there is not any plastic shipping tabs that need to be removed from the cartridge. 2. try reseating the cartridge. 3. Try replacing that cyan cartridge. It may be defective. Also make sure you use Minolta brand toners!
