Question about HP LaserJet 4600dn Color Printer

1 Answer

1/2" yellow line appearing in the middle of a background colored page

When using the printer with a full single-colored red background, a 1/2" yellow-colored line appears running horizontally across the page. When using a dark blue background, a lighter blue line appears where the yellow line should be. When using a green background, the line is filled in with green and is barely visible but can be noticed. What is producing this and how do we get rid of it?

MFC-9840 printing Yellow/Red/Blue strips in background. Any ideas why?


This is caused mainly by leaving the Corona Wire sliders anywhere other than where the arrows on the slider meets the arrows on the Drum Units. This leaves solid lines of colour down the length of the page (one per colour with the slider in the wrong place) if it is leaving more than the single line on the page it is probably leaking cartridges.

These particular cartridges are known for their ability to leak badly (OEM and Remanufactured cartridges do it). The only option for a leaking cartridge is to replace it and clean out the machine with a lint free cloth preferably a 'Toner Grabber' cloth. If you nee one of the toner grabber cloths then talk to your local cartridge refilling place for one. If they refil toner cartridges there then they probably have them or can suggest a different option.

Phaser 7300 dn prints full yellow color background on every page even if the background copy shows no color.


Most likely the yellow drum unit is causing that problem. The charge roller gets worn and makes whatever color it is in print out all the time. That would require replacing the yellow imaging unit.

Grey background over entire page.


If toner is getting onto the transfer belt, it can only get there by either being put there intentionally, or leaking.

Failure of Transfer Belt is normally degraded print quality - usually poor density, or a failure of the support behind the belt (usually puncturing the belt), and scoring a drum.

Seems to print a red or yellow line down the edge about 1 to 2mm wide, prints black fine. All toners over half full. Test page seems fine but can see red line along edge.


What ever color the line is you need to replace that photoconductor unit. They can be ordered from a Ricoh dealer and come with instructions for installing.

How do I reset the ink levels?


Well, theres the problem. Most printers can remember up to three cartridges. That includes color & black. The best way to put it is that each cartridge has a"funger print" that the printer can read, and estimated ink levels can be gaged. There is a way to "reset" the cartridges, but i do not have the document on me. Please email steve@nicesites.org and I'll send it today. I'm not saying it will work 100%, as the reset method is geared for the 56/57/58, but who knows right?
