Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

Every page covered in magenta and black won't print across the page

My HP Color LaserJet 2600n has been having printing problems lately.  The magenta and blue cartridges were running low, so I replaced the cartridges, however, it never seemed to work right after that.  Occasionally for black and white it would be ok, but then each page started having vertical magenta streaks on it and not all the color was coming out.  So I replaced the remaining cartridges and still the same thing.  Now, with the new black cartridge, the black won't print across the page and most pages other than the test page are covered with magenta.  The black will only print about 1/4 of the way horizontally and fades out.  Can you help me diagnose the problem or is this a job for the technician?  If so, how do I find someone to service it?
Thanks!

This is caused by toner contamination in the laser scanner unit, it is quite a complex job removing and cleaning the laser scanner. I would suggest you contact HP regarding the repair.

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed


Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim
