IF YOU LOOK AT THE PRINTER FROM THE TONER BOTTLE END THERE IS A SMALL CLUTCH IN THE TOP LEFTHAND REAR CORNER OF THE PRINTER.
YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE TOP COVER TO ACCESS IT.
IT IS BEHIND A PLATE BUT FASTENED TO THE MAIN FRAME OF THE PRINTER.
YOU NEED TO SPRAY INTO IT WITH SOME LUBRICANT LIKE WD40 NOT OIL.
THIS CLUTCH GOES RUSTY AND DRIVES THE CAROUSELL SO GIVES 15H CAUROSELL ERROR
My 2530dl prints blank pages then gives a media jam fuser error
I literally just fixed the same problem in my 2530DL.
Look at section 6.3.23
in this service manual for a nearly identical model http://printer.konicaminolta.com/drivers/other/Manuals/24_25/fs_2400s.pdf
and notice the "Precaution for Reinstallation"
This Registration Roller Solenoid is an electromagnet-activated lever which controls the timing of the page's movement through the printer.
The manual notes that the space between the "flapper" and gear is critical for proper timing. In my case, the tiny foam pad at the bottom end of the flapper had apparently become compressed over time, resulting in the spacing going out of tolerance.
I removed the foam pad and replaced it with layers of electrical tape, adding layers until I found the thickness needed to make the printer work correctly (6 to 8 layers). Then I removed the tape and glued in a piece of hard rubber of the same thickness. (Tape is only a temporary measure as it can compress or become sticky after a while.) Everything is back to normal now!
Minolta 2530DL. This piece of junk has another
Thank you for your kind reply.I'm not going by the readout - but by the fact that bits of paper get stuck under one or two of the final feed rocker/rollers,,,, and are a bu@@er to get out.Kinolta Customer Service - AND MANAGEMENT - are aware of just how badly designed this paper feed system is, but will do nothing about it.I have had to virtually strip this piece of carp down, just to give me a little more access,,,, even then, its more than a struggle.Thanks again.
