Question about Minolta Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Have a minolta QMS MC2300W. Has 3 seperate color cartridges. I am completely out of the pink and yellow color....but those colors won't rotate to the "pull out" position so I can change them. Only the blue is there. Blue has been changed. How do I rotate drum so I can pull out the other two colors to change?

SOURCE: Washed-out color.

Looks like you need some printer profiling...
Washed out prints can be caused by several things... Let's see if we can sort it out.
It could be your printer, or it could be your monitor giving you false readings.
Printer Profiles: If you do not have the correct printer profile, then your prints may turn out faded. This is a gamma thing. You are encouraged to calibrate your monitor, and go to the printer manufacturer web site and look up your printer to see if they offer the correct RGB and CYMK printer profile.
Poor quality paper: most likely the problem is a poor quality paper. You did not indicate what printer and what paper you are using, so we cannot help much. However, try a sheet of the high quality photo paper and see if the colors print more vivid and saturated.
If the above doesn't help, I suggest you find someone else with a different printer who is willing to bring it over and print from your computer. That will proof the printer either in or out of the equation.
If none of this helps let us know and we'll walk you through the creation of a custom printer profile and custom color space.

SOURCE: Problem with colors in Canon i850

OK this is the tricky part. You will have to take your printhead out of the machine (the peice of plastic the cartridges sit in). It just has a single arm holding it in and nothing else. There a few things you can try I will list them in order of safest to least safe.

1. Leave the cartridges in the head (even if you have to hold them in with your hand) and use a thin head on a decent vacuum cleaner (preferably one that can handle wet and dry so you don't get ink everywhere) on the bottom of the head where the ink comes out. You may be able to suck the ink through effectively removing any blockages.

2. You can leave it to soak in Isopropyl alcohol or windex or really hot water (not boiling) and it may remove any blockages. You must make sure that it is completely dry before reinstalling it though or you will wreck the head.

3. Using a jeweller's ring cleaner sit your printhead in an inch of water and activate it for 60 seconds (This can also damage your printhead).

You can get an idea how successful you have been each time by dabbing the bottom (where the ink comes out) onto paper towel or a tissue. You should see 4 lines, black, cyan (blue), magenta (red) and yellow.

If all of this fails you may need a new printhead which is dearer then a new machine.

Good Luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

How to clean ink absorber for canon mp237


First of all open the ink cartridge of your printer.
When the ink cartridge would move all the way over, then disconnect the power cord of your printer.
Now pull the frame of rubber from the printer and remove ink pads.
To clean ink pads you may place them in a bowl having warm water and start rubbing and squeezing them to clean it from ink.
After removal of ink, keep the pads separate for dry.
When the pads get dry completely, place them back in rubber frame.
Reinstall the rubber frame in your printer.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

Printer won't recognize cartridge


I had the same problem. I'm not sure but I think I replaced the cartridges when the printer was on because I turned the printer off and removed one of the cartridges. When I turned the printer back on it recognized that cartridge but not the others. I turned the printer off again, rmoved all cartiridges and put them back in when the printer was still off. When I turned the printer on again I had no problems. So...try turning off the printer, rmove all cartridges, then put them back in and restart printer. Hope this works for you .
