Question about Minolta 2430DL Color Laser Printer
I vacuumed toner dust out of printer and cleaned cartridges making sure no dust on chips and contacts and repeatedly get error message saying each cartridge is not installed. plenty of toner in all cartridges. Any advice?
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.

Memory Supply Error 10.00.00 The printer is unable to read or write to the print
cartridge e-label, or the e-label is not on the cartridge.
Basically what is happening is the printer cannot read the small chip on the toner cartridge. The chip is located on toner cartridge as it is inserted into the printer. 1 - Make sure the toner is firmly seated into the printer. 2 - Power cycle the printer with the toner out of the printer. Install the toner back into the printer. 3 - Install another toner cartridge. 3 - Verify that the e-label connector is firmly seated in connector
