Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL Laser Printer
I suspect the Waste Ink tank full issue. It is highly recommended to clean the Drum's waste ink tank, to do this, you'll need to disassemble the drum and remove the wasted toner. When the waste ink tank is overflown, the toner power is spreaded on the paper with the toner from the cartridge and makes the print out very bad with ink spread over the paper or splattered.
Please check the drum bar that there's no toner power stuck and make sure to gently blow them away (never touch the drum bar with your hand or any other foreign particles, since it's very sensitive). Also clean the cartridge and the fuser unit. Remove the cartridge, drum, fuser and blow through the passage with a blower so that all the accumulated toner would be cleared.
After everything is cleared and cleaned, reinstall all the components and try again. If the print quality is improved, you'll better replace the drum.
Let me know when you are done.
Thanks for using FixYa.
