To check the printer name, select [Administrator Setting] – [Network Setting] – [NIC Setting] – [Bonjour Setting] of this machine. In the default setting, the contents enclosed in parentheses ( ) suffixed in [Bonjour Name] correspond to the low-order three bytes of the MAC address.
If you are using a USB connection, make sure that the cable is properly connected. If your printer is connected via wireless network, verify that the wireless connection is working. If all seems fine, restart the printer and try again. If the Konica printer is offline, the error can be caused by faulty printer drivers.
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.
Remove and Re-Add Your Printer in Windows
If this happens, go to Settings > Devices > Printers & Scanners, select your printer, and remove it. Then click Add a Printer or Scanner to re-add it to the device list.
Some of the most common printer problems that most of us have experienced include paper jamming, slow printing, uneven printing, and wrong colour output. If you use your printer frequently, we know how annoying it can be to have persisting problems with the printer.
Unplug and restart your printer
Sometimes power-cycling your printer can resolve the issue. Turn off your printer and unplug it, wait 30 seconds, plug your printer back in, and then turn the printer back on.
Resetting the printer stops printing and clears the current print job received from the active interface. You may want to reset the printer when there is a problem with the print job itself and the printer cannot print successfully.
Start by searching on the front of your printer. The printer model could be located on either the top or bottom portion of your printer. The printer model could be found on the top portion of your printer; usually located near the control panel.
The easiest way to find your printer model is by looking at the front of your printer. Depending on what printer you own, the model name could be on the corners or the center of the front-facing cover. If it is on the front of the machine, it is usually close to the control panel.

Need of Konica Minolta printer?
Its a good product. Here I would like to share some key features of this printer..
Minolta Pageworks L printer
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
printer clicks three times when starting then error flashing
Check the drum unit and cartridge . Check the paper pick-up mecanism
Toner cartridge full, printer displays: "empty needs replacing"
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.
Difference Between Laser Printer and InkJet Printer
Laser uses toner which is a powder that gets melted onto the page. Inkjet uses ink that gets squirted onto the page.

Probably a worn feed roller. You can try cleaning it with a damp rag as it might just be covered with paper dust.

You may have to manually enter the IP address and assign a specific port number on the PC for the printer to work…I’ve had to do that occassionally.
