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.

Alarm flashes ink emptyhas ink! color was printing only yellow/green now prints only red/pink!


any chance it has dried out? run the test / head cleaning / did you reset the cartridge when you replaced it? generally if one or two colors work - the problem is the ink cartridge or the head for the colors not working. Did you remove the "tape" on the new cartridge?

Just a few days ago my printer will not print. It will come up with the message that says Open the printer cover and put Yellow Toner Cartridge. The yellow is in and it is not empty. I took the color out,...


Let it go through its checks. When you take the toner out, clean it, wipe off the chip (upper right) then snap it back in. It may stop with the yellow and it may continue through the other colors.

What I found, is that it is really the paper feed being out of sync. Keep with it, it will resolve itself.

Also, take out the drum and turn the paper feed forward till it clicks and realign your paper.

Despite installing new cartridges,cleaning and priming, my HP Deskjet 710C prints pink only. Using Windows XP test page shows no blue, or yellow.


hi,
do you installing both cartridges (black and colour)?
if you do so, my advice is to reinstall the driver for your printer.

if you install ONLY the black cartridge, and the color cartridge remain the old one, (which in my opinion is the present case), your problem is from the color cartridge.
The color cartridge have 3 colors and this are: cyan (some kind of blue), yellow and magenta (similar with a pink color, but more intense). The problem is simple: in your color cartridge has left only the magenta color, cyan and yellow tanks are empty.

have 2 options:
1. buy a new color cartridge
2. refill the color cartridge.

Cant replace a toner cartridge


It's done via the printers internal menu system:
On your Menu Select button press the arrow down once, then press the right or left arrow until it displays Menu Engine, then press down arrow again, then arrow right or left until it displays Engine Replace Toner (not Engine change toner SZ), then arrow down again, then arrow right/left till it shows the toner color you need to change, then hit the Menu Select button in the middle. The cartridges rotate until the one you selected appears, open the door and voila!

Pink copies


Hi,


Most printers is run by 4 colors black and the colored is basically yellow red blue. (or may called it magenta cyan etc)

1. One of you colored ink runs out that why you cant make any colored.
2. Or one of the basic color might be clog up, dry or simply empty.
3. you need all the 3 colors to make all the colors available.
