Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2300DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Why won't my minolta 2300DL print on any kind of vellum? So strange.

Why won't my minolta 2300DL print on any kind of vellum? I purchased Vellum made for Laser printers. Still it will not acknowledge any kind or color vellum paper no matter what I do. Is there something else I can do that I am not thinking of?

    I think you may be on to something. I just got it to print a little. I'll try reducing the paper size so more of the edge of the plain paper is revealed. May take some time.

    you tape the vellum paper along the edge to a regular piece of paper, and then place that in the rear feed tray. You want it to slide into the printer from that standpoint.

    old habits die hard, no? We've been using this workaround for years, when the printer technology was even more cryptic.

If you mean Vellum paper, make sure that your paper type is set from your server/computer to the printer. Remember, Stock rolled paper has different physical characteristics than Vellum. Also this will aid on the paper sensor to note what type of paper you are printing on

I am trying to print on vellum paper and my printer will not recognize it. I tried opening up the control panel on my computer and vellum/lightweight/film/transparent are all not options for paper types. ...

The printer has no ability to know the paper type, this setting happens in SOFTWARE, like Word. Then the command is sent to the printer, more commonly you would change papertype for photo printing....Look in the software, and not the printer itself.

I had a similar experience with a different brand ...

Your printer thinks it grabbed two sheets of paper.

Open your priter program (in the control panel) and see if there is a setting for Vellum

I hope this works for you

I can't get my Epson Nx400 all in one to print on vellum. It just spits the paper through...Help!

I had this same issue and I got the printer to print on vellum but I can't say it looked all that great. But here's what I did. I went into the printing preferences and then to the maintenance tab. On the maintenance tab you'll see an option for Printer and option information. Click on that and then you will see a little check box down at the bottom of the pop up and it says Thick paper and envelopes. Put a check in the box. Click ok and then it should print on the vellum for you. Make sure you put the vellum in the printer the right side up (front side) because if you don't it will print all messed up.

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper

Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.

Problem with my Screenwriter 4

With most laser printers whenever I see this problem It means that you had a paper jam but did not get all of it out. something is impeding the straight flow of the vellum. Most likely there is a piece of vellum stuck somewhere inside that you cant find.
