Question about Minolta Office Equipment & Supplies
SOURCE: My minolta dialta copier has
This code deals with the AIDC or Automatic Image Density Control failure. Most always this code is caused by toner collecting on top of the sensor. If you happen to know how to remove the Imaging Unit and then the Drum from the Imaging Unit then you could clean the sensor yourself. If not then I would recommend you call a service technician to correct the problem.
Basically what is happening is there is a thin mylar seal called the anti-spill mylar which is suppose to keep the toner off of the sensor. But these start to fail over time and allow toner to drop down onto the sensor which results in false readings and the C0F24 code. The mylar must either be replaced or what I do as a field fix is to reform the mylar back to it's like new shape so it seals. Then clean the sensor area of toner then re-install the drum and imaging unit back into the machine.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Tips for a great answer:
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.

mam/sir Power off the machine. Then remove the toner bottle be careful the hole might be on the bottom toner is going to go everywhere. Then close the toner cover and turn on the machine. Let the machine go through it normal routine. When it asks for toner install the toner bottle correctly. If THE KUNB on the side of the bottle is damage put a new one in that KUNB is what the toner motor uses to turn the bottle if it damage you get a code. If that does not work you might have a bad motor or the home sensor or actuator for the toner bottle is bad worse case the control board is bad
