This is an answer to most of the problems of "continuous calibration" in the HP 3600.
When the printer begins to constantly calibrate and falls in line so we have a problem, there are several causes for that problem and must be discarded from the simplest solution to the most complex.
Let's begin:

SOLUTION 1: The first thing to do is turn off the printer, and remove the cartridges, toner dirty or if the internal parts of the printer remove the excess, if there is dirt in the transfer belt clean.then close the front cover and turn on the printer without cartridges. then open the lid, place the magenta cartridge, and close the lid again, and so putting the four cartridges. If the problem persists try the next solution.

Solution 2: We must be alert to any strange noises in the printer, it is likely that one of the sticks is failing, if we are a strange noise came from, and replace the cartridge.

SOLUTION 3: There are times that it is software problem can be solved with a "COLD RESET" to do this we must turn the printer, and press the green button several times in the main menu until you see some options, navigate to the Down Arrow button until COLD RESET appears, press OK. the printer will restart and initialize. then restart and probably reached OK status.

SOLUTION 4: Sometimes by changes in temperature and environment where the printer is out of calibration sensor, to do a need to upgrade the firmware of the printer, usually ends the problem here. To download the firmware of the printer with the improvement because of "Countermeasure for multiple Successive Causing Environmental Sensor Calibrations." Is in the following link:

SOLUTION 5: If any of these options serves, it is likely that the mirrors of laser printer are dirty, this requires us to print a sheet to observe defects in print (moved, blurred, misplaced shadows), if any of these defects appear we disassemble the printer for cleaning the laser ... in this link are instructions

Hi I'm sorry to say its normally a faulty cartridge.
You now the black belt in the front of the machine well the machine when it calibrates prints a pattern on the belt and it uses this pattern to calibrate its self but if the pattern is not on the belt it can not finish the calibration.

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 optics will need to be cleaned by a technician to resolve this issue as it means dismantling your printer deep into the optics to fix the problem.

Have HP3600n over just 1year. Having trouble after startup gets stuck in calibration and won't go any further... any thoughts? Have tried cold reboot w/all unplugged several times...Mike


Start by removing the formatter. Have paper in tray 2.
Print an engine test. You should see repeating lines of cyan, magenta, black and yellow. If any of the colors are missing - run the Disable Cartridge Check. Run the engine test again with the previously missing color in another slot. If that color fails again, replace it. If the issue stays with the slot replace the laser scanner. If the engine test is good now, install a new formatter, power up and see if the calibration hang is gone.

Cyan is offset about 3/16"


check the locking tabs on the cartridge, sounds like they are not locking down the cartridge.

Can't stop the printer calibrating


If the calibration is taking a long time that can be related to the ITB belt. If the printer doesn't think that the calibration is correct it will keep trying until it sees a correct image(color)

We found that we had a defective cartridge. We returned it. A replacement cartridge did not cause the printer to callibrate continuously.

Magenta doesnt print in proper place


Sounds like the new cartridge has been sitting around for too long. The solid lines are usually due to the drum being exposed to light for too long. The other reason could be the charger roller has been in contact with drum (in the cartridge) for a very long time and probably heat has a part in it as well. Try another cartridge.
