Very Light Printer on HP Color LaserJet 3500

I change the transfer kit in my HP Color LaserJet 3500.
I used an HP OEM transfer kit and followed the instructions provided by HP.
Now the print is very faint, almost can see the printing.
Please help.

Asking to replace transfer kit - old printer is this necessary? Can it be over ridden?


You can not over ride it. You can keep on printer till the printout gets bad. Then you will have to replace the transfer kit.

Hp laserjet 3500 transfer kit


Hit the check botton on the control panel for the printer. Scroll down to "Configure Device" and hit the check button. Scroll down to "Resets" and hit the check button. Scroll to "Reset Supplies" and hit the check button. Scroll to "New Transfer Kit" and hit the check button. Scroll to "yes" and hit the check button.

Hit the return button (next to check button) until back at ready again. Transfer belt count should be reset now.

To make sure, from the info menu, scroll down to "print suply stus page" and hit the check button. Transfer belt should read as 100% now.

DON'T WORRY IF IT TAKES MORE THAN ONCE FOR IT TO TAKE. WE'VE SEEN IT TAKE 2 OR 3 TIMES OF REPEATING THE PROCESS (for no good reason) BEFORE THE MACHINE RESETS THE COUNT.

Hi!

If you could possibly manage to access the machine status menu and have it print to check the drum's life, fuser life, developer, etc.. pls refer. Kindly replace the toner cartridge accordingly use the menu settings when replacing any color if needed. Please print solid image or block in each color Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Balck. Well see if what color causing the problem. Please let me know the print result it may be; washed out or too light, too bright or black, double image, or not clean. Don't hesistate to contact me again about the result.

Best regards,
