You can try going into your print settings/preferences and checking magenta only. printers you need to keep a watchful eye on your ink levels, because if you are out of ink, you can not print in ANY color, even black.

If the above thing not works You can begin by making sure you are not using anything above 24-bit colour (RGB) in Word.

Also: Word does not use a colour profile. It doesn't make any changes to
the colour, so it doesn't compensate at all. The only colour profile
between Word and the printer is your Printer's colour profile.

Hope this helps

I have an HP Color LaserJet 2600n. Recently I had to replace the magenta cartridge. I bought a 3rd-party cartridge and the printer display shows that magenta is now "full." But, it won't...


I guess you should try to reset it ..and get the cartridge out and see if the toner (ink ) is getting out ..by pressing it (with the part where you removed the tape ) on some absorbent paper ..when it is working well it should leave a mark on the paper ..the mark should be not washed ...but real color and all...
If it do not ..just use a syringe and blow air in the cartridge ..just to agitate it ..and make sure it is not dry ..
Insert it back ..repeat the procedure until works ..and also if you have the procedure ..reset it ..

Magenta toner is not printing.


Problems with a single cartridge not printing are usually traceable to either a faulty cartridge or a bad laser scanner unit. Try a different cartridge if you have one. Are you getting any error codes?

Color is offset and blurred. There is no problem printing in black. Printing test page shows the same symptoms.


Hello
The color of HP LJ 2600n fades due to following reasons
1. the color cartridge near to empty 2. due to dust on reflection mirrors inside the printer
if the color cartridges are OK, then you need help of HP technician support, because cleaning of mirrors is very technical in nature for 2600n.
Dusty Environments can lead to Laser Scanner Contamination. The dust layer on the mirrors prevents proper transmission of the laser output in the imaging system leading to faded colors on the printed page. The initial stages of this failure typically occur in the magenta or yellow color planes as faded or light color. Often the left side is more faded than the middle.
You may need to contact the nearest Authorized Service Tech and get teh Laser Scanner replaced with the new released service part that has a mirror in a location where the dust ideally cannot reach easily.
Also, please ensure that the printer is relocated from the current location to a more dust free zone.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

I am using the HP Laser Jet 2600n and I only use the black ink, I have it set up that way, for financial reasons. Why is it not letting me print? It is saying that my magenta is out, and will NOT let...


First of all, for financial reasons you don't use a color printer. Unless you print graphs.
Second of all, this is a laser printer, it doesn't use ink.
Third, all four toner cartridges must be inserted and working in order to print in any color.

Go back and read the "First of all" again and buy a B and W laser printer.

MY HP ''COLOR LASER JET 2600n'' HAS FUOLL INK CARTRIDGES BUT THE PRINTING IS REALLY DULL AND FADED LOOKING. CAN ANYONE HELP? TERRY M.


This is a common problem with this model of printer. The scanner optic degenration is due to dust buildup on mirrors and lenses. Since the most vulnerable mirror reflects its laser beam to the magenta toner cartridge, red tones are the first to show fading. Colours shift: purples turn blue and oranges turn yellow. The printer will need to be cleaned by a certified HP technician to resolve this issue as it means dismantling your printer to fix the problem.

Magenta covers entire page


I had a similar problem. See: http://www.fixya.com/PostQuestionTx.aspx?prdid=378544&ctgid=0&thid=1044936&type=2
Are you your replacement cartridge orignial HP?
I also had your problem on my previous HP printer (don't remember the model #). And I had it cleaned a couple of times, replaced the magenta cartridge (but with remanufactured), and could not get rid of the magenta. I gave up and bought a new 2600n, but now I wonder if I had used original HP parts if the problem would have been solved.

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


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.
