Tip & How-To about Minolta magicolor 2200 EN Laser Printer

Cost Saving Advice

  • Consider disposing of waste toner yourself
    Waste toner is not environmentally friendly. But, instead of replacing the waste toner bottle, check with environmental experts in your area for what to do with the waste toner. It may be a simple matter of collecting the toner in a coffee can and turning it in somehwere.
  • Never buy toner cartridges
    Nothing about toner cartridges for this printer ever really wears out from normal use. And, refilling them is clean and easy once you know how. But, more importantly, it costs about 90% to 95% less.
  • Never replace parts just because the printer tells you to.
    Serviceable OEM parts for this printer well outlast the printer's pushy insistance to replace them. All new serviceable parts come with a fuse. As soon as you install the part, the new fuse causes the printer to reset the page count for that part. Then, the printer blows the fuse. If the printer has been printing fine, but refuses to print because it claims a part must be replaced, remove the part, find the fuse, replace it, re-install the part, and voila!
  • If a part really does need to be replaced, scavange parts from an abandoned 2200.
    Chances are that plenty owners of this printer have gotten tired of replacing the over-priced parts.All you have to do is find one that has yet to dump the printer (like me... hint, hint).

You need to replace the waste toner collection bottle. The waste toner bottle has to be replaced every 30,000 Letter pages on average. Order part number 42869401. The directions will come with the replacement unit. Remove and dispose of the old waste toner carefully.

I hope this helps.

i have a c652 biz hub keeps coming up waste toner box konika minolt printer

To replace the waste toner box, open the front door above the paper drawers. The waste toner box is on the left hand side (usually). Your supplier should have supplied an extra waste toner box. Slide out the 'full' toner box. Replace with an empty one. This should register that you have installed an empty waste toner box. If not, turn off the copier and after a minute or two, turn on the coper again. [If you want to be environmental friendly, the toner box has a small slide cover approximately 1-2cm long (usually on the upper face at the rear as you remove it). Place this end in a plastic bag, slide open this 'cover' and rotate the toner box 180° so this is facing down. Care needs to be taken to prevent the 'waste toner' from flying everywhere. Gently agitate the box until all the waste toner (a grey color) has spilled out. (Approximately 600-800gms) Carefully seal the bag and dispose. An industrial vacuum cleaner can be used to remove the residual toner, clean down the waste toner box with a soft rag and it is ready to re-use.]

Waste bottle full...can i empty it and how??

Don't be conned out of your money by Konica or any salesmen. The waste bottle can easily be emptied. There is no sensor that 'gets tripped and can't be reset' this is bull*&%t. Just take the cartridge out. Go somewhere that you can dispose of the toner (make sure it's not windy !) then turn it to the 'locked' position. This opens the port, then just shake the thing back and forth for a few minutes. You can feel getting lighter. Then turn back to unlocked. Use a vacuum to remove toner from outside of cover, then a soft cloth or wipes to get it clean. Then put it back in.


yes - pull it out - twist the lock closed - tip upside down and shake it into a plastic bag - it will get awfully messy if you don't use the plastic bag.

The book doesn't really tell you where it is in the machine but if you open the door in front of the copier, look for a white plastic bottle with toner in. Remove the toner bottle from the machine and dispose of the toner bottle and replace it with a new one or dispose of the waste toner. Clean the bottle and replace it back into the machine.
