Check the Main Power Switch and the Power key for the status. Check whether the power plug of this machine is firmly plugged into the power outlet. Also check that the breaker has not tripped. Check to see that the Main Power Switch and the Power key are turned ON.
If your printer`s status displays “Printer in error state,” there may be a problem with the printer itself. Make sure the printer is turned on and connected to your PC by Wi-Fi or cable. Check it for low paper or ink, and be sure the cover isn`t open and the paper isn`t jammed.
Faulty power cords and connections are an uncommon but possible cause of a printer not turning on. Before suspecting a cord failure, ensure that there is power to the wall outlet and there are no conditions preventing the printer from turning on. Testing by substitution can confirm if a cord connection is the problem.
The bypass tray, also known as the multi-purpose tray or general-purpose tray, is a tray on your copier that can be used to print jobs on media that cannot be run from the main trays of your device. Use it for OHP transparencies, adhesive labels, translucent paper, and paper that cannot be loaded in the paper trays.
Make sure you are pointing the Bypass tray from the printing settings. Make sure you fill the Bypass tray ONCE you`ve sent the files to the printer. Make sure the user have permissions to print from the Bypass tray. Make sure your Bypass tray is activated in the Printer`s parameters.

Turning the power ON/OFF while the print monitor screen is displayed may cause the printer driver to go off-line and make printing impossible. In this case, open the [Printers / Printers and Faxes / Devices and Printers] folder on the computer and check if your printer driver is shown as off-line.

Minolta Pageworks L printer
ANSWER : I’m not familiar with that model. I do have to say that 8 years in storage will have detrimental results. I have never seen any printer request a transfer roller change. They do come as part of maintenance kits in HP series printers. Transfer rollers really don’t wear out. Worst that happens is they get toner on them. Their function is to charge the back of the paper and pull the toner down on it. That being said, you probably will have a host of other issues. Any drum wiper blade will have deteriorated necessitating replacement of the drums. The fuser assy. will probably have suffered damage to the pressure roller from sitting in the same position without rotation for 8 years. Depending on storage conditions, the toners might have suffered as well. In my opinion, it will cost you more to fix it than replace it. Test print procedure is Chapter 3, item 5 in the user manual http://printer.konicaminolta.net/drivers/manuals/pageworks/cpw.pdf

Toner cartridge full, printer displays: "empty needs replacing"
ANSWER : I once went to a customer who had a similar issue. They had installed new cartridges and judging from the box, they looked OEM. Strange thing was they felt empty when lifted and they were missing the chip on the outside that tells the printer it is installed and keeps track of how many copies were printed with that cartridge. The printer has no other way of knowing if the cartridge is full or empty.
