Magicolor 2300dl ghosting and smear - black only

Folks,
It appears, from reading the forums on another site, that the "fix" for ghosting is to buy a new printer (http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/laser/21006#1)

Is this still the case (in 2008)? My printer is ghosting, from black only, and from the same printer page (not the previous page). It looks like I'd have to replace the drum unit (http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/laser/3493#1)

I've taken two pictures of printed pages. Whats a bit confusing, is that this only happens with Black, not with the other colors. Wouldn't problems with the drum unit affect all colors.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. I'd love to fix this thing and keep it out of the landfill.

    Thank you NA,

    In the intervening 3 months since I posted, I took the printer to Deens Electronics to get it fixed. They replaced the Fuser .. but the problem returned immediately. After a trip back to Deen's they cleaned out the toner that was apparrently on some of the internals. They suggested I use a lighter paper, or change the settings. Since then, I've used lighter paper and the printer appears to be okay.. after the first page.

If only black does that, then it can be black toner, but the best way to find out, print something and when printer starts to take paper open front door, remove waste toner box and take out pc drum and transfer belt and check the printed page from there, if it seems ok, print nex page and open door when page comes out from fusin unit, if quality goes bad before fusing unit, it may lead to 2'nd transfer roller / pc drum and transfer belt quality was ok / if after FU then you have a problem in fusing unit.

Our 2300DL is leaving streaks when printing


Out of one or more toners. If you have removed and replaced a cartridge in error the % remaining is reset to 100%. Try to determine which color is missing in your print out (usually black), and then follow menu instructions to replace that cartridge. The ends are color coded so be sure you change the correct one. This will insure the remaining cartridges % remaining is correct.

Smeared print on paper


I was getting a similar blur/blob down one side of the paper (with no discernable print anywhere,) but after removing and emptying the toner collection bottle my printing returned to normal. I am still working on the size mismatch issue, which seems to be prevalent in the 2300DL population.

Replacing Black Cartridge


You can change the toner by going thru the menu, and selecting the appropriate "change black toner" item. I've got the same printer btw. You then open up the cover and the black toner has been rotated to allow you to remove it.

Minolta 2300DL ghosting


Hi,

I just had the same problem with my 5430DL. It was a bad toner cartridge. The bad cartridge is at 73% full, and had not been a problem until recently. I had been troubleshooting and finally remembered that I had the old cartridge with toner still left. I swapped them out and no more ghosts. Swapped back and the ghosts came back. I have ordered another new toner cartridge and fully expect the problem to be resolved.
