Minolta Di250 copier malfunction C0070; please help me my boss wont buy a new and i need it to make my application; please help me


Re: Error Code c0070
If the machine is throwing the C0070 code without the bottle being inserted than likely the worm gear of the little drive motor of the toner bottle holder is damaged.

If C0070 is only coming up with the bottle inserted, than the bottle may be wrong or damaged from previous attempts.

To reach the toner bottle holder ("hopper") mechanism you have to remove the rear cover.

Konica Minolta Copier service code C0070 C-0070


This service code C0070 is a universal code used by Konica Minolta to indicate a toner bottle rotation failure. These machines add toner by rotating the toner bottle that you install in the machine. Most of the time this code is caused by a toner cartridge that has been installed incorrectly or has become dislodged from it's holder. To clear the code open the front door or toner door and remove the toner cartridge/bottle from the machine. Close the toner door and if needed open then close the front door to reset the code. Let the machine run. This may take several minutes and will allow the machine to bring the toner bottle receptacle into it's home position. Once the machine stops running completely, then you can re-install the toner cartridge. If the code does not come back you are ready to go. If the code came back after removing the toner but before you re-installed it then you have either a dirty rotation sensor or a bad toner drive motor and will need service.
If the code comes back after the cartridge is re-installed then there is either a priblem with the cartridge or with the toner bottle drive.
Most of the time though the problem will be resolved by the outlined procedure.

How to fix problem code 0070


C0070 indicates that the toner bottle is not rotating as it should.

Open the toner door and see if the "UP" label on the toner bottle is on top of the bottle. You should be able to see it as soon as you open the door. If it is not then turn the machine off then on again to reset the C0070 and try and get the bottle to it's home position.

If it is visable, remove the bottle carefully so as not to spill the toner. Set the bottle aside and close the toner door, turn off the machine for 10 seconds then turn it back on. Allow the machine to run for as long as it needs to and see if the code comes back. 1 of 3 things should happen. 1) The machine will warm up as normal and come to the "ready to copy" state and you can make a copy. 2) The machine will run for quite some time, then shut down and say replenish toner.
3) The C0070 comes back even with the bottle removed. In this instance you may need a service technician as there is a drive problem with the bottle rotation system.

If 1 or 2 are true then try re-installing the toner cartridge if and only if all machine noise/running has stopped. Then run copies and see if the code comes back. If it does then you most likely have stripped the toner bottle drive gear and it will have to be replaced.

Code error c0070, Minolta EP2050 Copier


C0070 means that your toner bottle is not rotating properly. First thing is to remove the toner bottle from the machine. Close the front door and let the machine run. This may take several minutes maybe even 10. If the code does not come back and once the machine has stopped then re-install the cartridge and let the machine add toner. If no code comes back you are fine. If it comes back after re-installing the cartridge you have a small plastic drive coupler in the hopper that has cracked or there is toner on the rotation sensor. Kind of a common problem on these models. If this happens just reply with a comment and I will point you to the parts you might need.
Most of the time tho this code is a result of an improperly installed cartridge or a cartridge from the wrong model. Should be 201A toner.
Good Luck
