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" 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

I have a Konica Minolta Magicolor 1650en. When replacing color toner, I managed to install magenta and yellow, following menu prompts, but when I try to install Cyan, the cartridge doesn't...

I had a similar problem in that after changing one of the cartridges (I bought a whole set), the message "cannot rotate cartridge" appeared. I tried pressing the cartridge in more firmly and may have caused the carousel to rotate a little in the process. I cycled the power which seemed to clear the error message and allowed me to select the next cartridge to change, but upon opening the door to change it, was unable to remove the old one as it was positioned a little too high. I eventually cleared the problem by manually rotating the carousel by pressing in and holding the carousel release (see arrow) mmgazette.jpgwhile rotating the carousel downward slightly, to line the cartridge up as it appears in this picture. Then powered it back up and was able to do the normal cartridge replacement procedure for the remaining cartridges without further error messages.

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.

make sure your cartridge is not stuck and pushed in all the way in printer. If it gets struck it will dump ink out and waste it.

How do I change black toner? Blue is accessible but how do I get it to rotate?

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.

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.


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. :)
