Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400W -- Only Prints on Reboot!

I have a Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400W on a HP laptop, connected via USB, running Vista. If you send a job to the printer, it queues it and says "printing" but nothing happens until you reboot the computer, when it finally does print. I updated the drivers using those listed on Konica's website to no avail, though the software recognizes the printer and says it is ready for printing.

Any ideas?

    Deleting the extra copies of the printer doesn't always work though. I have the same problem and I often have to delete the extra copies, turn off the printer, reboot, etc until I finally get it working. Basically the Konica 2400 DOES NOT WORK WELL WITH VISTA.

    Had the 2400W working for years with windows XP and windows 2000 and never experienced any problems. With a new vista based HP Laptop I make the experience that printing hardly ever works. It looks like the spool processes on the computer and on the printer do notm communicate well. Sometimes after reboot there is a print issued. In addition the status monitor tends to run into a dead loop.

    Turns out, all I had to do was disable "User Account Control" in the control panel... go Vista.

I've had that problem before too, and found out that there were copies of the printer that had somehow installed themselves on my computer. All I needed to do was to choose to print with "konica minolta copy 1" instead of the one that I *thought* was installed and it worked. I then deleted the original printer and just stuck with the copy.

Vista print drive for the konica minolta 2400w


If you are using the USB connection, got Control Panel, Device Manager and delete/uninstall the last listed USB Hub - and wait a moment for the system to re-recognize what's connected. If there is a page in the cache, it will automatically start to print.

Only prints on computer restart!


Have you tried a different port?
This will identify if it is a USB issue, possible USB 1 or 2.
It sounds like an issue with your port and not the printer, do you have access to advanced settings on your computer for USB?

How are you connecting to the printer?

Macs do NOT connect the same as PCs, check the manual for connecting via the Mac.
