Question about Minolta Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Hello, I have just acquired a second hand Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400. The utility software works fine. However, when switching it on, the green indicator light by the on-off switch does not stop flashing, even after the initialisation time appears to be over and the ultility software is ready for scanning. The scanner never goes to the ready to scan mode at all (steady green light, not flashing). It only displays a steady indication when I press the 'eject' button on the screen in the scan utility, not the scanner itself. Even then, it refuses to accept the film or slide holders. The door appears to be working fine. Several USB cables and ports have been tried. I have also done the shift control I to reset as well without luck. Is there something I am doing wrong or is there a problem with the scanner itself. Many thanks, Nigel

    Unfortunately, that did not work - the programme on first start simply stated that a connection to the scanner could not be made. Switched on scanner and then the system showed the start up message. Finally got to the window to start scanning - the scanner simply sat there with its flashing light.

    When hitting the eject button on the screen, as before, obtained continuous light but still refused to accept a holder! Also got error message: 'Error=42. Set up Starts. Close Scanner front Door.'

    Door was already closed when this was received.

All the comments I've seen made regarding similar symptoms to your were related to the setup of the device. Apparently the device is very finicky and I have heard many people say that the installation process for the scanner has caused a lot of people issues.

From website:

  • Dimage Scan must be executed before turning on the scanner for the first time.
I suspect that the device won't be properly recognised by the system without the software already being installed and configured before the device is attached. I would remove the device, uninstall any trace of it from your system, and try again with a fresh install.

    It will sound like an excuse for not resolving your issue, but I think the equipment is probably just damaged then. Assuming you set everything up accordingly it just shouldn't be giving you those types of problems. If you wanted to get into the nuts and bolts you could try changing system board, etc. But myself, I wouldn't feel that secure opening this device up and changing components. I'm more of a printers and faxes kind of guy.

I have a proplem in konica minolta bizhub c352 how to sort the problem i have an error code 3451

If the code comes back do not reset, you are messing with the Fuser the Hot part. Continuing to reset without a technician looking at and or replacing it, the fuser can catch on fire and that would ruin a perfectly good day. ENSURE YOU WAIT THE 10 SECONDS

1. Turn OFF the main power switch.
2. Turn main power switch ON while pressing the Utility/Counter key.
3. Touch [Trouble Reset].
4. Check to make sure that [OK] is displayed and the it has been reset.
5. After turning off the main power switch, turn it on again more than 10 seconds after and check if the machine starts correctly.

Konica Minolta showing error code c3451, cannot clear it. Please help

Hi this is an issue with the fuser unit not getting to the correct heat level check there is no bits of paper stuck in the fuser unit check that the heater lamps are coming on h1 and h2
also check the thermistors you can replace the fuser unit assembly if it still does not work after replacing the fuser unit you will need to change PU1 and last resort PWB-A
the above will resolve your issue if you hold down the utility meter key and then switch on the machine keep the utility key held down for at least 30 seconds after switching on the machine after 30 seconds take your hand of the the utility counterr key and on the display it should come up with trouble reset press the screen on trouble rest the machine will reset you could try this first to see if machine resets
let me know how it goes

Konica Minolta C652 Fax/Scan Button and User Box Button

The hard drive is not turned on. enter service mode ( utility, meter count, details, stop, 0, 0, stop, 0, 1 - this should be pressed in exact succession) then go to system 2 and look for a place where it asks you about all the installed perifferals. Turn the hard drive setting on.

Your not giving enough information. But i would make sure that the interface cable between the optics and the print engine are intact. Its the fat cable with the high density pins on the right side of the machine near the back. (external) Make sure this is reseated, otherwise you will be tearing into control boards.
