1. If you have checked Economode setting (sam88kid), and still have problem.
Run cleaning page off printer, then do color calibration, follow up with configeration page. If you still have the problem, your last resort may to try the Cyan toner in another printer.
Next you should contact HP helpline direct as the cyan toner should be considered defective and should be replaced under warranty, either directly by HP or through your suppling retailer.

Check the Colour management in printer driver on the computer - set this to Automatic.
On the printer or The HP ToolboxFX, check to see if Economode is turned on (under Print Quality) which reduces the print quality.

If the printer has a color leaking, remove and replace the cartridge ASAP. Otherwise you are going to have a mess on your hands that you may not be able to clean up. If this is an HP cartridge, call HP and let them know. They should send you a replacement. Vacuum up the loose toner as much as you can.
This is a common problem with this model of printer. The scanner optic degeneration is due to dust buildup on mirrors and lenses. Since the most vulnerable mirror reflects its laser beam to the magenta and yellow toner cartridges, red tones are the first to show fading. Colors shift: purples turn blue and oranges turn yellow. The printer optics will need to be cleaned by a compliant technician to resolve this issue as it means dismantling your printer and cleaning the mirrors and lenses in the optic section to fix the problem.
Most likely the cartridges are out of toner. Or something is obscuring the path of the laser writer. If changing the cartridges does not solve the problem the machine will need servicing. Service manuals are available but not as comprehensive as necessary to fix this problem. Below is a very good DIY guide, but be very careful if you choose to do this yourself and follow his directions precisely.
Print quality issues can be due to a number of things. There may be a defect in the cyan toner cartridge causing it to leak excess toner. The transfer belt could be dirty or defective. The printer may simply need cleaning. Given that you posted this question during the winter, it's also very likely a low-humidity environment is causing a high-static condition, randomly pulling extra toner onto the page.
The easiest thing to do is clean the printer. Take a vacuum with a small attachment and clean out any excess toner. If you have canned air or a vacuum with a blower you should also blow out toner from any crevices that may not be reachable with the standard vacuum.
If you have a spare cyan toner, you can try installing that and printing a series of test pages. The built-in demo pages are good as they will use a fair amount of toner and should help gauge if this solution helps.
The transfer belt is the most expensive component to replace in the printer. If it needs replacement you will have to contact an authorized HP service company. However, before doing that, you should try the above steps and run a few iterations of the built-in cleaning process. You can navigate the printer's menus to find this function.
Many people over-look low-humidity and static conditions, or do not believe they could have an effect on laser printers. However, static charge is the very principle on which laser printers work and is how the toner is transferred to and held on the page before it is run through the fuser. Low humidity can easily cause dirty printouts. Try placing a ream of paper in a more humid area for a couple days, then load the printer with that paper and print several test pages. You can also try placing a humidifier near the printer and leave it running for several days and try printing test pages again. If this solves the issue, maintain a humidifier in the proximity of the printer for the duration of the season until the weather warms up and the average humidity increases.
That problem is frequently on HP 2600 series.
You must try to change all remanufactured toner cartridges with HP OEM with no exception, the best alignment it is when you change the black cartridge and the printer make a cleaning page process. Cartridge HP OEM should be almoust empty. It Is not necesarry to be a new one. After the alignment process, you can put the remanufacturated cartridges back on.
This was work for me. 100%
You might have an issue with the cartridge lockers. Be sure to clean cartridge contacts and HV pins in printer. Doesn't help? Do like this. In the printers menu, under system set up, then print quality, then replace supplies there you can choose override out. Print a status page and check status for the cartridges, if the printer don't prints in override mode you have a brooken cartidge locker. In that case, remove all toner cartridges and check the lockers by moving cartridgedoor in and out, do all works the same way or is any of them different?
