Cartridge advancement to replace toner

I have a Magicolor 2300DL Printer that I would like to refill the toner on but can't figure out how to advance the cartridges on. The blue cartridge is always the one facing out. Can you help?

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!

Our 2300DL is leaving streaks when printing

Out of one or more toners. If you have removed and replaced a cartridge in error the % remaining is reset to 100%. Try to determine which color is missing in your print out (usually black), and then follow menu instructions to replace that cartridge. The ends are color coded so be sure you change the correct one. This will insure the remaining cartridges % remaining is correct.

Best place to purchase toner refill kits

I would not recommend filling toner yourself, the toner is very fine and you might accidently inhale some of this toner powder.
Depending upon the cartridge it may not be able to disassembled to install the toner, it may need an opening created and then sealed later.
You can purchase recharged toner cartridges on the Internet at reasonable prices.

How do I manually release the toner cartridge carousel? It is stuck between cartridges and just makes a not so good sounding noise when it tries to advance.

On my 2530 there is a small hole on the right side after opening the front case. Put a screwdriver in there and hold the latch down. The carousel will then move freely.

Printout getting fainter magicolor 2300dl

Probably low toner if fading is on black only or a single color. To check levels, MENU (right arrow to Consumable Usage) MENU (right arrow to see each toner cartridge level) Readout may not be accurate, especially if you have changed or removed a toner cartridge.

I have replaced the toner but am still getting the replace toner message.

My message error was sepcific for magenta after I removed it to refill it. After refilling, cleaning metal contact points, resetting the metal tab which prevents message of "low toner", I put the cartridge back in and received the "magenta toner not installed" message. I turned off the printer (safety first!) , I then pushed the button left of the hole where you slide the cartridge in, There is a squarish hole with a circular or cynlinder shaped button in that squarish hole. Use a small screw driver to push and hold it in. While the button is held in I gently rotated the cartridges so that my magenta cartridge was no longer in view, (rotate them counter clockwise). I released the button, shut the door, then turned on the printer.

Minolta 2300DL Magicolor printer

EAch cartridge has a small ( about 1/4 inch square) stainless steel color metal tab at the end of the cartridge opposite the refill cap end. The surface of this little tab is visible when the cartridge is "low" on toner and this causes the machine to give the message to change the cartridge. As the cartridge gets older I've noticed that this tab moves to the exposed position more readily, which causes the message to appear. If you google how to reset the position of this tab, then the message will not appear. EVerytime I refill the toner of a cartridge I check to make sure to reset the position of this little metal tab.
It is difficult to describe how to reset the position of the tab. You have to stick a small regular screw driver into the slot below where the metal tab appears and find the lever which can be pushed to reset the position of the tab. You can likely find photos of this procedure on google.

Toner problems

A couple of suggestions. 1. make sure there is not any plastic shipping tabs that need to be removed from the cartridge. 2. try reseating the cartridge. 3. Try replacing that cyan cartridge. It may be defective. Also make sure you use Minolta brand toners!
