memory available for the full-page frame buffer). The guaranteed imageable
(printable) area for all media sizes is the page size minus 0.197 inch (5 mm)
from all edges of the media, except for media (such as custom media) with a
width of 12.25 inch (311 mm), which is 0.275 inch (7 mm).
Envelopes also have a nonguaranteed flap area that varies with envelope

How do I set page margins?
Margins are set through your application. Some applications allow you to set
custom page sizes and margins while others have only standard page sizes
and margins from which to choose. If you choose a standard format, you may
lose part of your image (due to imageable area constraints). If you can
custom-size your page in your application, use those sizes given for the
imageable area for optimum results.
How can I change the image alignment?
If, for any reason, you need to change the image alignment, you can do so in
two different ways.
14
Adjust the margins or page size through your application (recommended
method).
Use the printer’s control panel (Quality/Tray Alignment menu).

General Considerations about Media
For best results, use media that is
Suitable for plain-paper laser printers, such as standard or recycled office
paper
Stored on a flat, level surface in its original wrapper
Before purchasing a large quantity or special media, perform a trial print with
the same media and check the print quality.
Attention
Use only KONICA MINOLTA-approved media. Using unsupported media
such as inkjet paper will result in damaging the printer and in voiding
your warranty.
Check printer.konicaminolta.net/support (click on “Answer Base”) for
currently approved media. To order approved transparency media, go to
www.q-shop.com.
Unsupported Media
Do not use media that is
Dusty
Coated with a processed surface (such as digitally gloss-coated media or
colored paper that has been treated)
Iron-on transfer (heat-sensitive paper, heat-pressure paper or heat-press
transfer paper)
Cold water transfer
Pressure-sensitive
Carbon-backed
Designed specifically for inkjet printers (such as superfine paper, glossy
paper, glossy film, and inkjet postcards)
Already printed on with one of the following:
– An inkjet printer
– A heat-transfer printer
– Another printer or fax machine
Unapproved iron-on transfer material

Wet (or damp)
Keep media between 35% and 85% relative humidity. Toner does
not adhere well to moist or wet paper.
Layered
Adhesive-coated
Folded, creased, curled, embossed, warped or wrinkled
Perforated, three-hole-punched or torn
Too slick, too coarse or excessively textured
Of different textures (roughness) on the front and back
Too thin or too thick
Stuck together with static electricity
Composed of foil or gilt or that is too luminous
Heat-sensitive or cannot withstand the fusing temperature (392° F/
200° C)
Irregularly shaped (not rectangular or not cut at right angles)
Bound with glue, tape, paper clips, staples, ribbons, hooks or buttons
Acidic
Not approved
How do I select the media type?

Tray 1: Universal media tray
Trays 2–4: Standard
media trays
Manual feed tray
How do I prepare media?
Do not unwrap paper on top of the printer, as this might cause paper
particles to fall into the printer.
If you are using paper, remove the top
and bottom sheets of a ream of paper.
Fan the stack of media to prevent static
buildup before inserting it in trays 1–4.
Do not fan transparencies.
Attention
Although this printer was designed for printing on a wide range of
media types, it is not intended to print exclusively on a single media
type except plain paper. Continuous printing on media other than plain
paper (such as envelopes, labels, thick stock, or transparencies) may
adversely affect print quality or reduce engine life.
Do not mix media of different sizes, types, and/or weights, as this will
cause media jams.
When loading additional media or refilling media, remove any media
remaining in the tray, place it on top of the new media of the same size and
type, and then align the media in the stack before loading it into the tray. We
recommend refilling the media only after all of the media in the tray has been
used; otherwise, a media jam may occur.

Custom-size Media
When you use media that is not a standard size (see “Media Specifications”
on page 11), you need to configure the printer driver for the custom size.
Otherwise, your print job may be cut short or misaligned on the page.
To make custom page sizes work correctly, you need to change the printer’s
settings in the KONICA MINOLTA printer driver.
Default page sizes are set in inches on 110V printers and in millimeters on
100V and 220V printers.
When you set custom page sizes in inches, the two digits on the right are
always decimal places. For example, set 8.5 inches as 850.
When you set custom page sizes in millimeters, there are no decimal
places. For example, set 78.2 millimeters as 78.
The more accurate your measurements, the better your print job is
aligned.
Duplexing
Duplex (2-sided) printing can be done manually or, if you have the duplex
option installed and selected, it can be done automatically.
Select paper that is opaque enough to block out what’s printed on one side
from being seen on the other side. For best results, print a small quantity to
make sure the paper and print quality are acceptable.

Only plain paper up to 17-24 lb (64-90 g/m²), with a length equal or less
than 17 inch (432 mm), and with a width less than 11.7 inch (297 mm)
can be autoduplexed.
Memory Requirements
Your printer comes configured with 256 MB of RAM. Duplex printing can be
done automatically with a duplex unit and manual feed tray and enough
memory installed, and with the duplex option selected in the printer. Most
print jobs will print with 256 MB of RAM, but may not print at the desired
resolution.
34
You may need extra RAM to duplex print jobs that have:
– Very high coverage of text and images
– Large graphics
Additional memory can be added up to a total of 512 MB.
Duplexing
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
Autoduplexing from Trays 1–4
To autoduplex, the duplexer must be physically installed on the printer and
identified as an installed option in the printer driver. Otherwise, the print job
will print as simplex even if you select duplex.
In autoduplexing, the back side is printed first and the front side is
printed last.
The duplex layout Long Edge creates a document that flips horizontally as in
a loose-leaf notebook; Short Edge creates a document that flips vertically, as
on a clipboard. Simplex (or None) prints only on the front face of the page.

Media Storage
How do I store media?
Keep media on a flat, level surface in its original wrapper until it is time to
load it.
If media has been removed from its original wrapper, place it in a plastic
bag and store in a cool, dark place.
Avoid moisture, excess humidity, direct sunlight, excess heat, and dust.
Avoid leaning it against other objects or placing it in an upright position.
Before using stored media, do a trial printing and check print quality.

Tray1.) Printing is generally possible on any size paper that is loaded;
however, all of the information may not fit on some sizes of paper. In that
case, print on A4- or Letter-size paper loaded into the tray specified with

About Printer Drivers
The last chapter explained how to control printer features when you are
standing at the printer by using the printer’s control panel. This chapter
explains ways to control the same features without leaving your computer by
using printer drivers.
On Windows PCs, you can access the driver in the Start/Settings/Printers
path and use a series of tabs in the driver to control printer features. The
General and Details tabs are set automatically by your PC’s operating
system. When you load the driver for the magicolor 7300, the settings for its
specific features are displayed on additional tabs in the same series. This
manual tells how to access those tabs and what each tab controls.
On Macintosh and Linux systems, printer features are controlled by PPDs.
The PPDs are integrated seamlessly into the operating system’s own printer
driver. Feature settings are accessed in the same manner, no matter what
printer you use. This manual includes an introduction to the Macintosh
settings. Detailed information for Macintosh and Linux systems is included in
the magicolor 7300 Reference Guide on the Documentation CD-ROM.
In addition to the control panel and printer drivers, you can use
PageScope Light, a web-based utility that is embedded in your printer,
to manage many of the same printer features. For information on
PageScope Light, see the magicolor 7300 Reference Guide on the
Documentation CD-ROM that came with your printer.

**If not much memory is available with the High setting, print
using Print Quality set to Standard. Otherwise, add more
memory.

About Color Printing
This chapter introduces the color features available on your printer, including
printer resolutions, Automatic Image Density Control (AIDC), and color
matching. In addition, it includes a brief troubleshooting section to help you
deal with any color problems that might arise.
Color printing is based on the principles of subtractive colors, using pigment
to absorb light and reflect the appropriate colors back to the viewer’s eye. The
magicolor 7300 Reference Guide on the Documentation CD-ROM includes a
chapter on color basics, if you want to learn more about the theory behind
color printing. The Reference Guide also includes a chapter on color profiles,
which explains how monitor colors are translated into printed colors and tells
you how to download specialized color profiles if you need them.
Printer Resolutions
Your printer offers a choice of print resolutions, depending on which driver
you select.

Selecting a Resolution
Select the print resolution from your application’s print dialog box or from the
printer driver. The best option depends on what you’re printing.
70
Standard is the fastest choice for printing. Standard prints crisp type, so
it’s also a good choice for documents that don’t include graphics.
High is the best choice for print jobs with graphics. Pages take slightly
longer to print but produce the best graphics. High resolution provides
600 x 600 x 4 dpi class printing. With this resolution, bit depth is increased
to produce clear images. Pantone tables, which are included on the
Software Utilities CD-ROM and on the Internet (printer.konicaminolta.net/
support), can help with color matching at this resolution.
About Color Printing
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
Automatic Image Density Control (AIDC)
The printer’s color calibration procedure, known as the Automatic Image
Density Control (AIDC) cycle, is performed automatically based on the
number of pages printed, environmental changes, and consumable changes.
During an AIDC cycle, the printer performs an internal check of its color
output and automatically readjusts itself to optimum settings that account for
the age of toner cartridges and changes to the printer’s environment, such as
increases or decreases in humidity or temperature. This cycle checks both
the 100% saturated colors and the halftoned colors.
The length of the AIDC cycle depends on several factors.
Light Calibration—Light calibration is performed when you turn the
printer power on, when the printer wakes from a deep sleep Energy Saver
mode, Light sleep Energy Saver mode, and when the fuser unit is
replaced. This cycle lasts 73–99 seconds.
Heavy Calibration—Heavy calibration is performed when you replace
one or more print units or toner cartridges. This cycle lasts 197 seconds
when one print unit or toner cartridge is replaced, or 240 seconds when all
four print units and/or toner cartridges are replaced.
Intermittent Printing—A 26-second cycle is performed immediately after
page 200 or just before page 201 of intermittent printing, and whenever
the engine detects a specified inside temperature change.
Continuous Printing—A 26-second cycle is performed every 11 minutes
of continuous printing, and whenever the engine detects a specified inside
temperature change.
In most cases, it’s best to leave the automatic AIDC function enabled all the
time, but you can use the printer’s Quality/AIDC/Disable menu to disable it if
you are using linearization or calibration software.
Color Matching
Your printer’s color management system is adjusted for best results with the
most commonly used application software, including the Microsoft Office
products. If you are using these common applications, you may never need to
adjust the color matching on your printer.
If you do need to make adjustments, however, the printer offers you a wide
variety of color matching options.
Color controls are located in the Features tab of the printer driver.

Quick Color Configuration
The simplest way to control colors is with the Quick Color Configuration
option in the printer driver. Quick Color Configuration offers 6 choices that are
applied to the entire print job. You can select the setting that’s most
appropriate for your entire print job and apply it uniformly to all text and
graphics.
Color Options
When your print jobs are more complicated, Color Options is the best choice.
Color Options lets you apply one color matching standard to graphics and
another to images.
Color Model
Black & White printing—prints 100% black with black toner only
Color—prints in color
Halftone Screens
Continuous tone images have to be converted to dot pattern images on a
laser printer. Because of the limited resolving power of the eye, halftones
appear as continuous tone images. Halftones are defined by three characteristics—screen frequency (or lines per inch, the number of lines of dots that
compose each inch of a halftone screen), screen angle (the angle at which a
halftone screen prints), and spot function (the shape of the dots).
Three halftones screens are available for this printer. In the Detailed Color
Settings dialog box in the Windows drivers, you can choose separate halftone
screens for Characters/Graphics and for Images:
Low—Best for photographs and scanned images
General—Optimized for performance and quality
High—Best for text and line art
Color Profiles
Color profiles use the International Color Consortium (ICC) standards to
translate monitor colors into printer colors. Color profiles are more flexible
than color rendering dictionaries, so you can make the closest color matches
for your particular job, but they may require more skill to manipulate so that
you get the results you want.
You can set the RGB source profile to match the characteristics of the source
of the print job, the simulation profile to match a specific press, and the output
profile to indicate the characteristics of your printing device. Several source
and simulation profiles are included with your printer or you can download
72
Color Matching
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
additional profiles. Instructions for downloading profiles are included in the
magicolor 7300 Reference Guide on the Documentation CD-ROM.
RGB Source Profiles
RGB Source profiles are used for color conversion from RGB devices, such
as monitors, to CMYK devices, such as printers. Use RGB Source to indicate
the source in which the job was created. Five choices are available in the
printer driver.
Contrast—The same as sRGB but with a lower gamma (1.8), which
results in slightly lighter output. This profile is a good choice when printing
photographs.
None—No color conversion is applied.
sRGB—A standard color space based on the average performance of PC
monitors. This is the default setting for your printer. This profile provides a
very good representation of monitor colors and is especially useful if you’re
printing documents from the web or from Microsoft Office applications.
sRGB Saturation—The same as Vivid but with a higher gamma, which
results in slightly darker output. This profile is a good choice for presentations, colored text, and business graphics.
Custom sRGB Source—The custom sRGB source is available for
Macintosh only.
Vivid—Provides the most vivid colors possible by mapping RGB solid
colors to the printer’s CMYK solid colors. This profile is an excellent
choice for transparencies and business graphics.
Simulation Profiles
These profiles are used to convert information about one CMYK device into
data for another CMYK device. That is, you can use them to make your
magicolor 7300 printer create colors like those produced on a different printer
or a printing press. Custom profiles are added through the Printer Profile
Management dialog box.
Destination Profiles
Custom destination profiles are added through the Printer Profile
Management dialog box.
Profiles for Host-based Color Management
Some software applications use host-based color management and work best
with color profiles tailored specifically for that purpose. Such profiles are
available in the Windows/Utilities/Color directory on the Software Utilities
CD-ROM that came with your printer. (Readme files provide directions on how
Color Matching
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
73
to use and where to load each profile.) KONICA MINOLTA recommends that
you use these specialized host profiles for CMYK print jobs to manage the
amount of toner put on the page. They are useful when working with Microsoft
ICM2 for Windows, Apple ColorSync, CorelDRAW, Kodak KCMS, Adobe
PageMaker, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, and other applications.
Gray Treatment
Process gray can be turned on or off for each element of the job:
Color printing/Black & Gray—prints all 100% black and intermediate grays
with black toner only.
Color printing/Composite Black—prints 100% black and intermediate
grays with a composite of all four toners.
Troubleshooting Color Problems
The magicolor 7300 color matching system is optimized for the sRGB
Standard, which is the standard used with many common applications such
as Microsoft Office. In most cases, you do not need to make any adjustments
to the default color settings to achieve the best results.
If you have trouble with color, however, there are several things to check.
1
Mechanical Problems. Print quality problems that are caused by
mechanical problems are usually drastic—colors that change from page
to page; colors that are off-register; colors that aren’t anything like you
expect.
Are all four toner cartridges installed properly?
Do all four toner cartridges have toner?
Are the print units installed properly?
Are the printer doors closed?
Instructions for checking all these mechanical issues are included in
chapter 10, “Troubleshooting.”
2
Resolution. If images look grainy or if your page is printed with black
toner only, the Color Options may be set for Black & White printing or the
resolution may be set wrong.
74
If Color Options is set to Black & White, all text and graphics print in
100% black.
If the resolution is set to Standard, text prints well, but images may
look grainy or unclear. It’s a good choice for text documents.
If the resolution is set to High, images are sharp and clear. Printing
takes somewhat longer at High resolution, but it’s the best choice for
the delivery copy of a document containing images.
Troubleshooting Color Problems

Registration Page. The registration page (Print Menu/
Registration) prints color test patterns so you can see whether all of
the colors are registered (lined up) properly. The registration page always
prints at 600x600 dpi resolution.
Vivid Setting. This setting is optimized for transparencies, mapping the
monitor’s solid colors to the printer’s solid colors so the intensity matches.
5
7
This setting may not work well for images, so experiment with it to find
the best setting for your print job.
RGB Source. This setting needs to match the profile for the document
being printed.
6
If graphics don’t match monitor colors, turn Vivid on.
Some applications tell the RGB source. If your document or
application lists the RGB source, set the printer to match. If it does not,
you can experiment with this setting to find the best option for your
print job.
If dots of cyan or magenta appear in what should be solid yellow
blocks, such as the highlighter feature in Microsoft Word or the table
and spreadsheet cell fills in Microsoft Word or Excel, set the RGB
Source to None.
Color Matching. If you see spots of toner around the edges of text, if
colors are too dark or too saturated, or if toner is so thick that it flakes off
the finished page, check whether Quick Color Configuration (on the
Features tab in your printer driver) is set to None. If it is, choose one of the
other options from the drop-down list. All of the other color configuration
options regulate the amount of toner that goes on the page, making sure
that the total amount is within the range that the printer can fuse to the
media.
Other Color Problems. Most other color printing problems arise from
color management issues in the application that was used to create the
job or from which you are printing the job.
Check the application documentation for advice on color
management.
Check the color notes on the KONICA MINOLTA web site at
printer.konicaminolta.net/support for information on color issues
with popular publishing software.

Transfer belt
Introduction
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
Attention
Although the printer was designed for occasional printing on a wide
range of media types, it is not intended for printing exclusively on a
single media type, except plain paper. Continuous printing on media
other than plain paper (such as envelopes, labels, thick stock, or
transparencies) may adversely affect print quality or reduce engine life.
Antistatic Protection
Attention
It’s extremely important to protect the printer from electrostatic damage
while all operations are being performed.
If you don’t have an antistatic wrist strap, discharge your body’s static
electric charge by touching a grounded surface before performing any
servicing operation. Also, avoid walking around after grounding
yourself.
What is a “face”?
A “face” is a single pass of media past the transfer belt unit. A two-sided
(duplex) page (also called a “sheet”) consists of two faces.
Consumable Life Expectancies
Attention
Consumable life is expressed in simplex letter/A4-size pages with
normal (5%) coverage in continuous printing. A duplex page is
equivalent to two simplex pages.
The stated life expectancy of each consumable is based on standard
mode, normal single-sided page coverage (usually 5% of letter/A4-size
media), and on whether printing is continuous (for optimal consumable
life, such as 500 pages), average (three pages), or intermittent (one
page) job size, and on specific operating conditions such as media
type, number of color faces, and page size.
The actual life expectancy will vary based on printing under these
specific operating conditions and other printing variables, such as
ambient temperature, humidity, and content of material printed (for
example, text or graphics).

Replacing a Toner Cartridge
Toner Cartridge Life
Attention
Do not remove a toner cartridge until TONER EMPTY displays in the
control panel message window or you are replacing the print unit;
otherwise, the amount of toner may not be detected correctly.
When a toner cartridge runs low, TONER LOW KCMY (KCMY =color) appears
in the message window, indicating that there is approximately 5% toner
remaining. Printing continues even though the warning appears.
Approximately 450 pages (A4/Letter) can be printed after TONER LOW KCMY
appears in the message window.
When the toner cartridge is empty, TONER EMPTY/REPLACE KCMY appears
in the message window.
You can print a monochrome (black) job even when any of the color toner
cartridges is empty and the job does not use that color.
For example, when the message window displays READY/TONER EMPTY Y
(Y for yellow), and you are printing only black text, the job prints. If the job you
are printing contains even a small amount of yellow, TONER EMPTY/
REPLACE Y appears in the message window, and the printer stops operating
until the yellow toner cartridge is replaced.
Toners combine to create colors. For example, magenta and yellow
toners combine to create the color orange.
You can also access the toner cartridge supplies status using the Status
Monitor, PageScope Light, and the drivers (via TCP/IP) for Windows XP/
2000/Me/98/NT4 and PPDs (refer to “Working with the Status Monitor” on
page 78).
Keep toner cartridges:
In their packaging until you’re ready to install them.
In a cool, dry location away from sunlight (due to heat).
The maximum storage temperature is 95° F (35° C) and the maximum
storage humidity is 85% (noncondensing). If the toner cartridge is moved
from a cold place to a warm, humid place, condensation may occur,
degrading print quality. Allow the toner to adapt to the environment for
about one hour before use.
86
Replacing a Toner Cartridge

Level during storage.
Do not stand or store cartridges on their ends or turn them upside down;
the toner inside the cartridges may become caked or unequally
distributed.
Away from salty air and corrosive gases such as aerosols.

Replacing a Print Unit Assembly
The print unit assembly consists of the print unit and its corresponding color
toner cartridge.
You do not need to reset the consumables usage monitoring system
when you replace a print unit assembly.
Print Unit Life
Characters and images are created in your laser printer through a
photosensitive process that applies toner to the Optical Photo Conductor
(OPC) (which functions like photographic film). Each print unit contains an
OPC, and a developer that form the image that is developed and transferred
to the media. The full print unit assembly also includes a same-color toner
cartridge.
Print unit life is directly related to the number of rotations of the OPC. Longer
life is achieved with continuous printing. Intermittent printing with small-sized
jobs requires automatic cleaning rotations before and after each job, which
impacts print unit life.
The number of pages that can be printed differs depending on the
image and size being printed in addition to other printing conditions.
Attention
The print units are extremely sensitive to bright light, direct sunlight,
and touch. Always leave the print unit in its protective package until
you’re ready to install it. Any exposure to light should be avoided and
limited to less than two minutes, or permanent damage could result.
If you suspect the print units are damaged due to exposure to light, put
the entire print unit in a dark place to recover. Depending on the amount
of exposure, recovery may take up to two hours. Recovery time is
dependent on the amount of exposure sustained, and recovery is not
guaranteed. Any damage resulting from mishandling of the print units
will void the warranty of the print units.
When the print unit is low, the message P-UNIT LOW KCMY (KCMY = color)
appears. You will need to replace the print unit soon.
When the print unit is worn out, the message PRINT UNIT END/REPLACE
KCMY (KCMY = color) appears. The printer will not print until the print unit and
its same color toner cartridge are replaced. After the print unit assembly is
replaced, the printer automatically resets the consumables count.

By printing the Statistics page or by using PageScope Light, the percentage
of life remaining on the toner cartridges and the current print units can be
checked.
However, if the life of the print unit reaches 0% but the toner in the attached
toner cartridge has not yet reached 0%, the message “PRINT UNIT END/
REPLACE KMCY” will not appear in the message window of the printer.
It will not be necessary to replace the print unit until the toner cartridge runs
out of toner. This allows for efficient use of the toner cartridge and print unit.
When lives of both the print unit and the toner cartridge have reached 0%, the
message “PRINT UNIT END/ REPLACE KMCY” appears.
When this message appears, replace the print unit with the toner cartridge
attached to it.
After the new print unit is installed into the printer, attach a new toner
cartridge to the new print unit.
Follow the instructions below to replace the print unit assembly. All print units
are replaced in the same way. The only difference is the specific cartridge slot
into which they’re placed.
Attention
Be careful not to spill toner inside the printer or on yourself while
removing a print unit or toner cartridge. If toner spills, immediately wipe
it off with a soft, dry cloth.

122
Do not tilt the printer more than ±1% in any direction.
For best output quality and longest consumables life, keep the
printer on a hard, flat, level surface. A surface can be tested for
levelness with a standard round pencil. If the pencil rolls, the
surface is not level.
Avoid the accumulation of dust and paper debris.
Always close the printer doors gently. Never expose the printer to
vibrations.
Be careful when removing paper jams, as the fuser and other internal
parts may become very hot.
Do not cover the printer immediately after using it.
Turn it off and wait until it cools down.
Do not leave the printer’s covers and doors open for any length of time,
especially in well-lit places; light may damage the print units.
Do not tap paper stacks on the printer.
Do not tilt, oil, lubricate, or disassemble the printer.
Do not touch the electrical contacts, gears, or laser beam devices. Doing
so may damage the printer and cause the print quality to deteriorate.

Antistatic Protection
Attention
It’s very important to protect the printer controller board from
electrostatic damage while performing any task involving the controller
board.
Turn off all power switches first. If an antistatic wrist strap is provided in
your printer option kit, attach one end of it to your wrist and the other
end to the bare metal chassis on the back of your printer. Never attach
the wrist strap to any piece of equipment with an electrical current
present. Plastic, rubber, wood, painted metal surfaces, and telephones
are not acceptable grounding points.
If you don’t have an antistatic wrist strap, discharge your body’s static
electric charge by touching a grounded surface before you handle any
printer boards or components. Also avoid walking around after
grounding yourself.
BuzzBox (Americas only)
The magicolor 7300 has an internal standard audible buzzer control that
alerts you to activity on your printer’s control panel.
BuzzBox is an external printer accessory that warns you with a buzzer and/or
a blinking light any time the printer goes off line. This means you’re alerted to
print job interruptions, such as empty media trays or other consumable
issues.

Dual In-Line Memory Module (DIMM)
Dual in-line memory modules (or DIMMs) are compact circuit boards with
surface-mounted memory chips.
Your printer comes with 256 MB SDRAM printer memory DIMM on board and
one open DIMM slot. You can upgrade to a maximum of 512 MB of RAM
through the installation of additional DIMM. Additional memory must be 128
or 256 MB, PC-133-Compliant SDRAM DIMM.
Additional memory allows you to download more fonts and increase the
printer’s buffer (area where data sent from the computer is stored while
waiting to be printed). The amount of RAM installed in your printer governs
which resolutions can be used with each media size.
Dual In-Line Memory Module (DIMM)

Preventing Media Jams
Make sure that...
Media matches the printer specifications.
Media is flat, especially on the leading edge.
The printer is on a hard, flat, level surface.
You store media in a dry location away from moisture and humidity.
You have the correct media type and size selected in the driver if you’re
printing on custom media, envelopes, labels, thick stock, or transparencies.
You remove transparencies from the output tray immediately to avoid static
buildup.
You always adjust the media guides after inserting media. (Guides that are
not properly adjusted can cause poor print quality, media jams, or printer
damage.)
You load the media (for single-sided pages) print-side up in Trays 1–4 (or
print-side down in the manual feed tray).
Many manufacturers place an arrow on the end of the wrapper to indicate the
print side—if you can’t determine which side of the media to print on, remove
the media from the tray, rotate the stack a half-turn, turn the stack over, and
then place it back in the tray).
Avoid...
Media that is folded, wrinkled, or excessively curled.
Double feeding (remove the media and fan the sheets—they may be sticking
together).
Fanning transparencies since this causes static.
Loading more than one type/size/weight of media in a tray at the same time.
Overfilling the media input trays.
Allowing the output tray to fill with more than a few transparencies.

Simplex Printing
The media is picked from the media tray, passed along the transfer belt,
passed through the fuser, and delivered via the media exit to the output tray.
Duplex Printing (Trays 1–4 Only)
Media is fed from the tray, passed along the transfer belt, passed through the
fuser, fed into the duplex option where the media undergoes a change in
direction, cycled along the transfer belt, passed through the fuser again, and
is delivered via the paper exit unit to the output tray.

171
Clearing Media Jams
To avoid damage, always remove jammed media gently, without tearing it.
Any pieces of media left in the printer, whether large or small, can obstruct
the media path and cause further jams. Do not reload media that has
jammed.
Attention
The image is not fixed on the media before the fusing process. If you
touch the printed surface, the toner may stick to your hands, so be
careful not to touch the print face when removing the jammed media.
Make sure not to spill any toner inside the printer.
Unfused toner can dirty your hands, clothes, or anything else it gets on.
If you accidentally get toner on your clothes, lightly dust them off as
much as possible. If some toner remains on your clothes, use cool, not
hot water, to rinse the toner off. If toner gets on your skin, wash it off
with water or a neutral detergent.
WARNING!
If toner gets in your eyes, immediately flush them with water, and then
seek medical attention. Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) information
can be found at printer.konicaminolta.net/support (click on “Answer
Base”).
If, after clearing the media jam, the jam message in the control panel
message window persists, open and close the printer’s front and right-side
doors. This should clear the jam message.
Understanding Media Jam Status Messages
Frequent jams in any area indicate that area should be checked, cleaned, or
repaired. Frequent jams may happen if you’re using print media of the wrong
weight. When a jam occurs, one of the following messages appears in the
message window on the control panel.

Service Call Messages
A service message sometimes occurs as a result of an unusual combination
of events, not because of an actual problem. When the printer stops and a
service message displays in the message window, turn the printer off and
then back on. This often clears the service message indicator, and printer
operation resumes. Always try this before making a service call.
Service calls should be placed to the vendor from whom you purchased the
printer. If you cannot get service from your vendor, see the Service & Support
Guide for a list of sources of service and support for many areas of the world.

Requirements
EDNord - Istedgade 37A - 9000 Aalborg - telefon 96333500
221
With these characteristics...
With enough space to allow
adequate ventilation and easy
servicing.
With an ambient temperature range
of 50°–95° F (10°–35° C) and
temperature gradient of 18 F°
(10° C) or less.
With relative humidity range of 15%–
85% (noncondensing) and humidity
gradient of 20% per hour or less.
At an altitude of 0–9,842.5 feet
(0–3,000m.
But away from...
Water, water pipes, liquid (drink)
containers, and corrosive chemicals
or vapors, such as ammonia.
Small, loose metal parts, such as
paper clips and staples.
Excessive vibration.
A surface can be tested for levelness with a standard round pencil.
If the pencil rolls, the surface is not level. Clear the area of any
obstruction or items such as cables that might prevent the printer
from sitting directly on the flat, level surface.
WARNING!
Obstructing the ventilation grilles could present a fire hazard.
If the printer is located in a cold room that is rapidly heated, or if the printer
is moved from a cold place to a warm, humid place, condensation may
occur within the printer, degrading print quality. If this occurs, allow the
printer to adapt to the environment for about one hour before use.
If using a humidifier or water vaporizer in the room with the printer, use
only purified or distilled water. Impurities in the water may be released into
the air, where they can accumulate inside the printer and cause degraded
printer output.
Attention
Do not connect the groundwire to gas or water pipes or grounding for
telephones.

Consumable Life Expectancies
The stated life expectancy of each consumable is based on printing under
standard mode and specific operating conditions, such as media type, page
size, content of material printed, and page coverage (usually 5% coverage of
letter/A4-size media). The actual life expectancy will vary (or be reduced)
depending on these and other printing variables, including continuous
(optimal consumable life) or intermittent (for example, one-page jobs)
printing, ambient temperature, and humidity.
Use of consumables not manufactured by KONICA MINOLTA or use of
nonsupported print media may cause damage to your printer and will void
your warranty. If KONICA MINOLTA printer failure or damage is found to be
directly attributable to the use of non-KONICA MINOLTA consumables and/or
accessories, KONICA MINOLTA will not repair the printer free of charge. In
this case, standard time and material charges will be applied to service your
printer for that particular failure or damage.
