Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2430 DL Laser Printer

Konica Minolta Magicolor 2430DL--black line on right side of paper

My 1+ year old printer has been printing a solid black line from top to bottom on the right side of the paper--anywhere from absent to barely visible to almost 1/4" thick, depending on the paper guides.  My drum seems to have some toner buildup in that area, but even after cleaning it off, the line still remains.  If I have the paper pushed all the way to the left (leaving the paper guides open all the way and manually holding the paper toward the left side), the line is thinner.  It used to go away doing this, but now this is not even preventing it from printing this line.  The display says the drum is at the end of its life, but I'm otherwise still getting good print quality.  Is it really time to replace the drum (again! $$) or can I fix this problem to get more life out of it?

    I'm getting a black line running vertically on the left side of the paper. Not solid black but rather a greyish streak that runs from the top to the bottom. I also get smeared or smudgy colour prints at other vertical points on the paper. All this happened after I replaced the 3 colour toners.

Printer leaves two white lines when it prints.

I had a similar problem with my 2430DL only with one fairly prominent white line instead of two. I read troubleshooting tips in manual for this problem and first suggestion was to wipe laser lens clean with a soft cloth. I did this and no more white line! If you do not have your manual please email me and I can forward you PDF manual. [email protected]

Problem with konica minolta paper margin

You don't have any solution but to increase the above margin to be equal as the bottom margin. To successfully print the pages, this printer need a larger bottom margin compared with the above margin. Just use the 'Center on page' option from your graphic application.

Toner is not sealed on paper. Images rub off!

Open the top cover of the printer. When you look toward the back you will see two yellow felt stickers with a black triangle on them. On either side you will see two gray or green tabs. If they are sitting up, pull them down towards you so that you can see the pictures of the envelope on top of them.

Try to print. If you have been printing like that for a while then the back of your pages my have spots on them for the next few prints.

Open the top cover. Remove the drum (part with long green handle). Below the drum you will see a strip of glass about 4-5 inches long. Take a cloth and wipe across the glass.

This will normally clear up any white lines in your print.

You need to clean the printer. See your manual for instructions. It is probably dust on the laser lens
