Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printer makes extremely loud clicking noise

Konica Minolta Magicolor 2430 The printer is making a horrible, loud clicking noise. There is no paper jam that I can detect. I have unplugged it for 30 seconds and re-plugged it, but the noise continues. The noise stops when I raise the cover, when the cover is closed, the printer makes a few whirring noises as though it is starting up and then the noise begins again. I would appreciate any suggestions on the cause of the problem and how to fix it. Sincerely, Kathy K.

    I can just about guarantee that your "Waste Toner" container is FULL! I had the exact same problem, changed it out, and it stopped immediately

Http://printer.konicaminolta.com/support/current_printers/mc2430dl_sup.htm#Printer_Specific_Documentation The user guide should be helpful to you to pinpoint what is causing the noise. Sounds like the belt drive or gears may be having a problem. Let me know what happens. Tim

Media jam tray 1

Here are a couple of links from the Konica website which provide somes illustrated instructions:

Media Jam Tray 1; Paper Pickup Roller replacement instructions.


Clearing Media Jams

Replacing the pickup rollers seems like a drastic first step. I would check to make sure that the paper being used is suitable for this printer and it is in good consition. You might try a different paper to see if it makes a difference.

Good luck in resolving your issue.

Open the top cover of the printer and remove the drum (piece with long green handle). Look down inside the printer and you will see a roller with ridges. Clean that roller with formula 409. Try not to use alcohol because it dries the roller.

If you are printing on paper thicker than 23lb. bond, you want to make sure you select "thick stock" for the media type on your computer.

For instance... in your application click on file and then print. In the print window select properties (usually). On the setup tab of the next window you will see media type on the right side. Set it to the type of paper you are printing on. This should make the printer pick up the paper slower.

If the paper is thicker than 90lb index (160 g/m2) it is too thick to go through the machine.
