Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I recently purchased a P2015 printer as a replacement for my old faitful 4 plus. Unfortunately the print quality is poor. There is no black, little contrast and everything is gin shades of grey. The economy mode is switched off. Where do I go from here. Keith Wainwright

Sorry to hear about the 4+. Great machines. The 2015 sounds like it has either a bad toner or something mechanical like a laser or formatter. How recently is recently? They have a 1 year warranty so if it is in that period you should call HP.1-800-474-6836. Their warranty on this is a hot swap so they send you a new one and then you send the old one back. You will have to go through a troubleshooting process with them but it usually isnt too bad.

I'm not quite satisfied with color and black tone. What settings would you recommend.


You do not say what exact model of printer you are using so any answer will be generic rather than specific.

Poor colour and black tone can be as a result of various factors:
1. Poor paper quality that you are printing on.
2. Poor ink or toner quality being used.
3. Use of Ink / Toner saving modes or software.
4. Worn or damaged printer components such as the fuser roll on a laser printer and other similar consumables with a limited page use life.
5. Poor quality content being printed, i.e. low quality images being printed at too high a print resolution.

clean the print head 3 times,then realign the head .these are done by printer utility software given with the printer.

HP LJ 2600 "dirty" printing


Hi,

If the toner cartridges are "refills" that might explain some of your print quality issues. Unfortunately, HP only has 2 replacement parts for that model, the fuser and the ETB (Transfer belt) both would require a technician to replace. Check the transfer belt of any tears or punctures. Careful not to touch it, oils from your skin can cause quality issues as well. If at all possible replace all the toners with ones that were working fine.

Poor quality print


Try cleaning the LED heads. These are located in the lid and are facing you when you have raised the lid. A quick wipe with a dry cloth or tissue should help. If in doubt, check the user manual.

Poor quality black output


There is a defect in the Imaging Unit of these printers....if you replace the imaging unit, the problem of the faded black prints go away. If you have less than 7000 prints, you can call Samsung for a warrantied replacement. The Imaging Unit is supposed to last at least 20,000 prints.
