Pages are all PINK!

I am printing on regular white paper with black text. The pages that I am printing are coming out pink, what could be the problem? I have never had this happen before.

    Hello, you just answered my question about the faded colors. I replace the part you recommended (developer driver) and one page printed perfect! Then I tried printing a bunch of flyers which came out pink and the text with pictures were repeated several times on the page.

    Can you help?

The problem is the magenta developer assembly.

This is one of the 4 color assemblies you see when you remove the imaging drum.

The part number for the Magenta Developer is "Magenta Developer (M6090)"

This is a very involved repair, and although i have actually instructed other how to change the part, it is only something you should attempt if you are somewhat mechanically inclined.

If you do get the part and wish to change it yourself, I can forward you the detailed instructions on how to remove and replace it.

Thanks,

Pages come out pink only when printing in colore


The magenta developer is bad.

The developer drive on this printer rotates in both a clockwise and a counter clockwise direction to turn the developers.

When printing black, ( i cant remember which direction it turns, ) only the black developer turns.

When printing color, the developer drive turns the opposite direction, engaging ALL 4 developers.

( the developers are the multi colored bars you see when you remove the image drum unit.)

This is why you do not get the pink output when printing only black.

your choices are to set the printer to only print black and white. ( you can do this in the printer properties for your print driver). or you will need to replace the magenta developer.

The printed pages have pink blotches on the right hand side of the paper and horizontal pink blotches down the page


Try cleaning the color or magenta cartridge with rubbing alcohol and look inside the printer to see if there's pooled ink anywhere that is smearing on the paper. Try replacing the print head or cartridge.
