Magicolor 2300 W cartridge rotation for replacement??

Should it automatically rotate so that I can get to the next color? Am I supposed to do it manually?

Open the printer status display....wait until it shows "printer idle" in the staus. Go to the top tool bar and Click on Print...on the drop down, highlight and choose "replace toner"...click on the toner you need to replace (note here you can choose to replace with a 1500 or 4500 cart) it will advive you to wait...when you are prompted to open the door and repace the toner...the cartridge you have choosen will be in the upper left open slot...grasp and wiggle it loose...the new cart goes it the same way...needs to be forcefully replaced all the way in...close the door and let it warm up...should be ok to go

On the 2300 dl, how do I get the cartridge to move ie. rotate so I can change them out. It is on blue and I need yellow and black


I believe on that printer, you need to use the software to change the cartridge. Assuming you're running XP, right click on the printer software icon on your tray (lower right). --- in there you'll find where to replace the cartridge.

I have opened and closed the front door a number of times so that the cartridges rotate to different positions. It's trial and error until the right color is in the position to be changed.

Service Call 17H


had this message 17H after unpacking the Magicolor 2300 W.

Here's the step by step way to fix it, done with the help of an online technician on the phone.

Cause : one of the toner cartridges was unproperly installed in factory, or went loose during transport, so the whole toner rack is out of synch.

Solution : manually take out and reinstall ALL cartridges and reboot.
Time : 10 mins

IMPORTANT 1 : turn off the printer and UNPLUG it as you need to "erase" the error from its memory.
IMPORTANT 2 : this is a manual intervention, byp*ssing the electronic-*ssisted way to replace cartridges. As such, there's a risk to damage the unit.
IT'S YOUR CALL :D

How (you need to use the printer parts'names in the small manual):

1. Take out the waste toner bottle.
2. Release the transfer unit release blue lever clockwise to upper position (11:00)
3. Pull out the OPC drum cartridge and hide it in a box away from ambiant light
4. Now the fun part....
5. The toner cartridges are to be pulled out through the oval hole in the upper left corner. PLACEMENT IS CRITICAL.
Chances are there's not a cartridge ready to be pulled out as the rack is out-synch, u probably see 2 cartridges through the hole.
You need to manually rotate the rack for each cartridge BUT YOU MUST ACTIVATE ITS FREE-WHEELING FOR THAT.
DON'T FORCE THE ROTATION, YOU CAN DAMAGE THE UNIT.
6. About 1 inch to the left of the hole, there is a tiny rectangular hole with a circle button inside.
Use a flat screwdriver to push this button about 1 inch inside and hold it there.
(You know you're doing well if you can rotate the rack with one finger, almost like a bike's wheel...)
Then you can manually rotate the rack and take out each cartridge. AGAIN PLACEMENT IS CRITICAL, DON'T TRY AND FORCE OUT THE CARTRIDGE.
7. Take out all 4 cartridges.
8. Put them all back again, make sure you respect the color code (ie. C cartdrige is C slot, etc.)
9. Put back OPC Drum, etc.
10. Plug the printer and restart it.

That worked for me, the blue cartridge was indeed loose, no more 17H.

Best regards,

Taipan

Also read that you could try turning the machine on and hit the change toner button. If it lets you change toner, then remove all the toner cartridges and install them again and see if that clears it up.

How to change cartridge in magicolor 2500W?


If one of the cartridges needs to be changed, the printer will recognize this and it will automatically rotate that cartridge to the front of the printer.

Open the panel and follow the instructions that are shown on a sticker on the inside of the access panel. Removing the cartridges is not difficult. They do have a slight groove near the top that acts as a handle. You may have to rotate the cartridge up as you lift it in order to get it to come out. DO NOT FORCE IT. Once again, please consult the sticker on the inside of the access panel for details on cartridge replacement.

If you need to replace more than one cartridge, press the rotate button to rotate the cartridges to the one that needs replacing and repeat the process.

DO NOT FORGET TO TAKE THE SEALING STRIP OUT OF THE NEW TONER CARTRIDGE BEFORE PUTTING IT IN AS THIS TAB CAN AND MOST LIKELY WILL DAMAGE THE PRINTER. (I've seen it happen.)

After you have replaced the toner cartridges properly, the printer should rotate the drum a few times to prime the cartridges. This is normal. You should see a readout on the LCD screen of the toner levels. (You may have to press a few buttons to see the status on them.)

==================================================
If you need toner cartridges, head to your nearest office supply store such as Staples or Office Depot for replacements. (Staples will price match other stores if you give them proof of the other store's price.) When I last worked with this machine, the cartridges were still kind of expensive...but worth it for the quality that this machine gives you.
==================================================

Good luck. :)
