printers >> Konica Minolta Bizhub C350 Admin Mode

by matturn » Wed, 21 Nov 2007 07:05:02 GMT

I have a C350 that won't let me enter it's Admin mode. When attempting
access via the web interface, it acknowledges I'm entering the right
password (by returning "login failed" instead of "wrong password"),
but it won't log me in. When attempting access via the copier's LCD
panel, it just beeps at me when I press the button.

According to documentation, it's behaviour is consistent with what it
should be doing when it prints a job. But it's doing all this when
it's not doing anything. Power cycling (turning it on and off) doesn't

What might I try to fix it? Is it possible to flash it's firmware?

2. Konica-Minolta bizhub C250 will not print from computer via IP network

Can anyone help  me get this silly machine to print a basic test page from a
Windows XP Pro machine, via our IP intranet?
My friend's C250 has served for years as a reliable copier.  Now we want to
use it as a network printer.

We have installed the relevant drivers, from the bizhub's CDROM collection,
to a new WinXP Pro computer named "Gamma."  We installed into Gamma the
Windows capabilty to print to an LPR printer, first by adding "Print
Services for Unix" in the XP Control Panel; then by adding the printing
device "locally" that is an LPR with the relevant IP address... and
hostname.  The "address of the server providing lpd" is  The
"name of the printer on that server" is KMBT560A94.   I must wonder about
that hostname, which comes to us as a "given."  I was not able to assign a
hostname into the bizhub, as I have successfully done with various
ip-accessible print servers that attach to printers.

I ping the ip address successfully, every time, from the

When I print a test page to this LPR printer, there is a brief spooling
action under Windows Control Panel ...printers.  The job seems to go through the computer, at least.  The document number rises from 0 to
1, and then goes back to 0.  The document name flashes briefly in the
printer's queue, before disappearing, as should be the case when a job turns
into hard copy at a printer.

The only problem is that no print job EVER emerges.  100% failure.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

My friend, who owns the machine, and who is "non technical," wonders if he
might need to "log into" the bizhub, at its key panel, in order to get print
jobs to come out.  Meanwhile, the machine works fine as a copier, without
any ip involvement.

P.S.  Some time ago, I got into the keypanel of this machine, changed the
password, and entered the ip address shown above.  I enabled the "ping"
reaction, too.

4. Konica BizHub C250 won't scan multiple pages into one file

Ie been happily scanning items to my desktop through our LAN and the
BizHub C250 has always put all pages in a scan job into one pdf as
expected. Yesterday, it started putting each page of the scan into a
separate pdf. Before I noticed it and stopped the job, it had made
about 100 pdf files.

I checked the settings on the Konica itself and on the Webpage
interface and it very clearly shows the settings with eparate scan
disabled. And yet it still puts all pages into separate files.

I deleted and re-registered the user (me) but that didn make any
difference. I also just tried enabling eparate scan scanning, and
then disabling eparate scan before scanning once again. No matter
which way I have that setting, I always get separate pdfs.

Any suggestions? I could combine all the seperate pages into one pdf
but that takes a rather cumbersom extra step.

6. Konica Minolta 2400W printer problem

I have a new computer with Vista Ultimate. I have a Konica Minolta 2400w 
printer connected; I downloaded and installed KM's printer driver for Vista. 
When I send a print job to the printer, the printer whirs and clanks as if it 
is going to print, but after a minute, goes silent with its green light 
blinking. If I go to spooler services, stop and restart services, then (after 
about 30 sec.) the document will print. This is true for several programs and 
a test page from printer properties. However, I have an ancient (ca. 1996) 
program, Managing Your Money for Windows, that I still use because it will 
print checks on any check format. If I print a check, the printer prints 
immediately. Also, I have an old HP Deskjet 895Cxi printer; I can print to it 
without any problem. The KM printer worked fine on my old XP computer. Any 
suggestions why it won't work with Vista and what I can do?

8. new konica-minolta printer magicolor 4650, with lots of printer drivers (win 7)


I bought a new konica-minolta printer: Magicolor 4650 DN. It comes
with lots of printer drivers. I use Windows 7 64 bit. I think the
printer installed itself when I plugged it into the network router
(linksys). Windows 7 found the printer and I added the printer and it
seem to work, including settings / properties for duplex / grayscale /
color / page layout / number of pages per sheet etc.

Question: This printer should support a lot of things and when I want
to download software from the Konica minolta driver webpage, there are
lots of things to download. Some of these have something to do with
"ppd, pcl, xps" etc... I don't know what these things mean.

Here are some of the directory names I downloaded:


Should I install all of these ? Why ? What extra will they give me ? I
assume Vista-drivers are the same as Windows 7-drivers, right?

Please clarify. I guess the printer would be capable of doing
something more if I install these things - why else are they possible
to download?

Please help a newbie - full instructions/explanations would be nice...
