Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
Copies coming off with latent partial image on outside edges...not cleaning off well before subsequent copies
When you understand how laser copiers work, the same principle works in laser printers. When you send an image to the printer it is similar to an image being scanned for copying.
How this works. When you go to print something with a laser printer the program sends an image via the printer interface (software). One of the options with laser printers is full page, full bleed (no margins on edges). This can happen by design, you formatted it that way in the printer interface dialog box. Or this happened by mistake, software not working correctly.
Once this image is charged in the printer, paper is passed under a tungsten wire that charges the paper so toner melts into the paper as charged by the printer interface.
Apparently by design or mistake, this image data is still residing as an image in your printer. This then needs to be cleared away and removed.
To clear the old image away and provide a new clear set of data apparently residing in ram you can do one of two things. 1.) remove and reinsert the ram modules. This is dependent on your skill level. When you access the panel where the Ram resides there is a way to reset the printer, usually through a jumper, but... this is not true for all printer models. And, if you cannot follow this line of thinking, or have never done this, then it is out of your area of expertise and should NOT be attempted.There are too many mistakes you can make in doing this such as not using a ground strap. Again, if you don't know what that is (I don't know what your skill level is).do not do this. 2.) you can print a blank page at full bleed, that is no margins of any kind. This blank page you print at full size with no margins (full bleed) should clear out the dirty data that you are seeing now..
If that does not work, then you have no choice but to call in a printer tech to handle this problem for you. A printer tech, by the way, will be able to resolve this for you, professionally.
If this has confused you. Or, you do not fully understand the concept of what this effort does or how it is accomplished please do not "Refuse and Repost" just yet. Ask for more clarification on this process until you do fully understand it. Other experts here besides me will understand sending a full bleed blank image to your printer to clear out the dirty data in memory, (not dirty material in machine). This has nothing to do with your drum, rollers, toner or tungsten wire.

You said in your comment that the image repeats every couple of inches.is due to the faulty pcr roller in the tonner cartridges its located in the cartridge behind the drum of the cartridge.but you also said that the cartridges were replaced .if the replaced cartridges are new then its not the problem of cartridges but if the cartridges are refilled or recycled/secondhand it too can have faulty pcr roller.
but if the cartridges r new then its not the problem of cartridges.then it could be the problem of
1)printer requires servicing (as the rollers and gears r not able to move at the required speed so the image is repeating)
2)there is also a pressure roller in printer same pressure roller problem in the printer could be faulty.
3)there is a small lens in your printer if that lest has dust on it these problem could occur. but servicing will clear that problem.
feel free for further assistance.

Try cleaning any toner of the drum as toner tends to stick to it and transfers to the paper

Ispect the topner cartridge, check that the toner is not defective and spreading excessive dust.
Try replacing the toner and printing few pages.
