Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

2 Answers

A very thin light blue line appears on all printing jobs

The line runs the length of the paper, about 2 inches from the right side.

Opening the door reveals a thin line on the transfer belt. The line is most likely toner as it can be removed with very light wiping. When wiping it with a bit of white paper, the color is hard to discern, but seems to have some blue and maybe red in it.

When I wipe it all off both sides of the belt, the line on the printed paper and the belt recurs.

If it's a toner leak, I can't seem to find where.

    I have the same problem  but it's a green line on the left side of the page

    When opening the door, I have one blue line on the right side of the film and a cyan line on the left side of the transfer film. There are also spots of red scattered in the middle. Definately toner as they are easily removed by wiping, but recur immediately. Wondering if it is a humidity problem?????

When vertical streaks or bands appear on the page, it means that one or more print cartridges might be low.

Have you tried running some printer cleaning sheets through it? They are available through Office Depot, Fry's and other stores.

Also, it could be an issue with the imaging drum. I've worked on several printers which have had a similar issue and they needed the imaging drum replaced. Typically that helped.

GET BLINKING GREEN LIGHT TO STOP AND PAPER TO FEED?


The green light should be blinking it is an indicator of power to the terminal.
if you have a printing problem let's first check how you are loading the paper. if you scratch the paper with your fingernail you should get a faint black line. the side of the paper that has the line should be placed in the palm of your hand. (facing down) if you take your hand to the opening of the terminal. and let the paper roll off your fingers into the terminal the side with the line should be down and you should be able to grab the beginning of the paper and pull about 2 inches past the opening of the paper load tray. then close the lid. making sure the roller on the lid is lightly touching the paper. do not feed the paper through anything it sits in paper load tray. there should be 1 roller- black in color that is the length of the paper and it should have a sprog (spindle) type wheel that has grooves that will push or pull another sprog to move the paper.

if you don't have one sprog and roller on the door you need to get a replacement door.
if you do have those close the door and press the 2nd purple key to your right. this is a reprint button, see if something prints.
if it is still not printing. make sure the paper is the correct size.

We tried printing and copying with the setting set at LTR and LTR-R and we checked the paper tray and every time we make a copy or print it prints out the entire document perfectly centered across the...


It seems to me to be a problem of the Blue paper cassette size dial is set wrong. First see what the settings are from the display by pressing the paper select button. Most people have it set for the upper cassette to be LTR ( 8 1/2 X 11 inch paper - length running from front to rear in the cassette ) and the lower cassette to be LTR-R ( 8 1/2 X 11 inch ) or Legal ( paper length running left to right). Check to make sure the blue dial agrees with what's in the cassette. Try doing the testing by putting the paper on the glass first and closing the top. If this is correct and the problem is in the Documnet feeder then one of the raised flags may be broken or the sensor bad. The left one is for letter, the second one for LTR-R or legal and the third is for 11 X 17. The opening and closing fo the side guides also helps to determine paper size. Hope this helps you.

My Ricoh Aficio CL2000N is printing several faint lines


Couple possibilities:
Fuser hot belt has wear lines transfering to the page
Black pcu needs to be replaced
Transfer unit is not being cleaned properly and needs to be replaced.
Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

Black line is present when copying document; not


This sounds as if you have some ink/contamination on the small scaning glass that sits to either the left or right of the main glass on the copier.(Depending on the model/make)As your original is scanned over this thin piece of glass the scanning device will see any spots and this will result in a black line down the page.Please clean the glass with a soft rag.

Streaks on printed page full length even after installing new cartridge


Check the glass (the one the paper rests on). The underside of the glass that is. This is what the light 'sees', so, it will print this!

Hi,
 
The paper jam you had probably lifted the long, thin, plastic encoder strip in the pathway out of its slot, giving the false indication of a paper jam. In order to put it back in its place, please carry out the following steps:
 
Before you proceed you can actually see if you have this fault before completely disassembling your printer
 
1) Disengage the blue “hood” catch and let the scanner assembly open completely
 
Get a torch and look into the long opening the print head travels up & down.  You will see a hard metal edge all along the length of this hole and if you look further back you will see a thin plastic length which the head also travels along. What can happen is this gets twisted at the print head end, basically dislodged from the print head.  You should be able to see this. And this is what you are trying to fix
 
2) Lift the cover and remove the two plastic panels covering wires. (one left and one right)
 
 Mark down the position of cables, then remove them, and remove the now-freed top scanner section entirely.  They plugs are almost coded – all the blue wires go in the blue plug. All the red wires go in the red plug and the two white plugs are 3 and 4 pins so only have one home. You will also have to unscrew the earth wire
 
3)  remove the three screws holding the control panel down and remove the control panel. There are three cables attached to the control panel but there positions are obvious.
 
4) Remove the phone then the phone cradle – there is a wee lever at the bottom and then the cradle slides backwards
 
5) Remove the screws from the top plastic shell. There's two in the back and four in the front. There's also two plastic tabs in the front that must be bent aside before you can remove the top shell.
 
Note – if you are careful (I was not) you can manipulate the cmos battery so it stays plugged in and you do not loose your settings.  Else unplug it.  There is also a red and black cable you need to unplug to remove the tray. Its position is obvious as well.
 
6) Gently put the encoder strip back in its plastic guide, and check if you are able to get your printer to work all right thereafter.
 
If you are not comfortable carrying out the steps, I would strongly suggest you to have it repaired by your local Brother service center, without causing further complications.
