Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2300DL Laser Printer
Hi... I am getting a Fatal error code on my Minolta It's Code 17H... What can be done about this??... ANything with FATAL gets me nervoyu .. PLease help!!
I got the same error message. I took out all four cartridges and replaced them. Still the same error. I noticed from another post here to check the little white wheels on the end of the cartridge. The yellow one was really tight and I could not move it with my fingers. I sprayed just a bit of WD-40 on the white wheel and then tried to move it. It took a couple of sprays, but got the wheel to turn. Put in back in the printer and powered it up and everything is fine.

Remove each of your cartridges one at a time and see if you can spin the toner rollers by pushing on the little white plastic gears with your finger. They will be tight but you should be able to spin the roller by moving the little gears around.
My printer started giving the Fatal Error Code 17H and I did all the removal of the four color cartridges and re-seating each of them to no avail. After removing each cartridge and checking to see if I could rotate the toner roller I found that the yellow cartridge was extremely tight. I took the cartridge outside and used a can of compressed air to blow all the toner off the roller and tapped the cartridge on all corners and shook it back and forth several time. Finally I was able to get the toner roller so that it would rotate when pushing the little white gears like the other three cartridges.
After replacing the cartridge in the printer it worked with no more error codes. Hopefully this will fix the problem until I can order a new yellow cartridge.

17H means, the toner cartridge does not rotate (Incorrect developing
its very difficult to fix, first thing you can check is a sensor, if you remove a remove a side cover above the paper feed. and clean it.
there is nothing much you can do.
FATAL ERROR CODE 18H /SERVICE CALL 18 FUSER UNIT: Faulty warm-up
probably something wrong with thermistor or fu lamp is proken.
there is no simple fix for those problems. sorry
