Setting up a Konica Minolta printer is usually straightforward, but some issues might occur during the process that can diminish your work progress. It is important to confirm your printer model, as well as the operating system you are using (for example, Windows 10 64-bit), to make sure everything goes smoothly in the first place. In this article, we will explain what those issues are and how can you go around them in the first place.
How to Setup Your Konica Minolta Printer
Depending on the make and model of your printer, the procedure might be different slightly. Please check the official Konica Minolta Printer Manual that contains all of the additional and specific information regarding your printer model exclusively.
Once you are ready to go, make sure that you have the appropriate printer driver with you. In this case, the driver might be on a CD that came with the printer, but you can always download the latest driver from the Internet. Make sure you confirm your make and model and simply add “driver” to the search query on Google. Another key point here is that different drivers are used for different operating systems, so keep that in mind when downloading the driver. With the appropriate driver downloaded, you are ready to continue. Plugin the supplied USB cable into the printer and your computer and power it on using the power switch. Execute the downloaded/acquired device driver and follow the setup wizard until you have successfully installed the printer driver. At this point, it is a good idea to print a test page just to confirm that everything is working correctly.
With that said, there is much more to explain regarding the advanced setup of the Konica Minolta printer, so that all of the features these printers come with can be used. This was just a short introduction to the setup process. We are still working on a fully-featured article covering this topic, so check back in a while.
