Re: gives pink shadow on printing card paper 12 * 18
One of 2 things, Replace the transfer cleaning blade. You may be able to clean it and get rid og the problem. The second thing to try is to replace the magenta drum, but thats less likely since you say it goes away in 3-4 pages.I suspect the transfer blade.

Please don't try to clean the "head" A laser printer is a very delicate apparatus and can be dammaged very easy. The manual gives several reasons, why shadow's can apear. One is the paper could be to moist. You could see the manual (still online) to check what "shadow" is closest you what your machine produces. Maintanance starts at page 72 and is followed by trouble shooting, where you can see print errors.
PRESS #*c* in your control console respectively then you will get a service mode,Check to
confirm that there is A3 paper in the paper feed tray. If paper is
insufficient, supply it, will ask for main code press 67 then press Start and machine will ask for a sub code
press 24, then machine will give you another
display press execute on that one, you will get a pattern print out. After
completion of self-printing, the display is shifted to the output patch scan
start standby screen. Make sure toplace the printed test pattern on the glass pointing the light
side of the pattern towards the left hand side that is to place the light side
coinsiding with the arrow marking on the glass table, place some white A3 sheet
above this to correct the white value, press service and then press execute then
machine will give you another print out then on that you press ok on that one
and wait for the below display message.
ENGINE HALFTONE AUTO ADJUSTMENT MODE
QUIT THIS MODE.

I have had a similar problem since purchase 1 year ago. Mine has this issue on first 2-sided copy I print, problem is on the second side only. I disassembled the machine and could not discover the problem. However I did notice one paper transport roller (there are $) was askew. After reassembly all was well for about 40 copies then problem returned, I will remove that transport roller and retest machine
These machines can be a little finiky when replacing the paper in them try to take some of the paper off of the pile then take the paper your going to load and stand it on end and tap it like you would a deck of cards then turn it side ways and do the same. Once you do this reinsert paper and gently move paper back and forth into the feeding tray then try again, it has to make it to the paper feeder sensor to work then try again if it does not work let me know and I will try to help you some more on trouble shooting. You can also go to http//www.hp.com insert your model number and search paper feed problems and it will give you step by step instructions to sovle your problems. Thanks for using fix-ya.
What does it say in the display?..load paper plain letter....load MP feeder? I think the problem is the following. On the menu right arrow over to the paper menu. Hit select...it then gives you sub menus...paper type...paper size. Go to paper size...specify the tray your using...most likely tray one. Hit select and see what size paper its set on. I'm assuming your trying to print on letter size. If it says something else like legal...executive..A4...change it in the menu to letter. If it changes to letter hit select to save the setting. Now if it won't change in the menu pull open the paper tray. The back paper guide is real sensitive on these machines. You have to make sure the geen/blue tab on the back is set exactly into the letter size slot on the tray. That slot will be slightly bigger than the rest of the teeth you see on the bottom of the tray. If you have it set right then there should only be the 2 bottom tabs extending on the outside left side of the tray. Those tell the printer what size paper is in the tray. If theres 3 sticking out...you still don't have it set right for letter size. Okay..the last thing. Something that goes bad on those machines is the tray card. Its where those 2 tabs on the side of the machine I mentioned interface with the printer. They can go bad. You can either replace that card..or trick it. To trick it go back to the paper menu...paper size tray 1. Open the tray...and close it again. The setting on the screen will change to another size...do that again or until it changes to letter size. The leave it alone. You may have to do that everytime you add paper an reinsert the draw unless you replace that card. Hope this helps!
I had the same problem and it turned out to be a combination of the actual paper and media type. Brother brand paper just printed way too pink and some Ilford papers did also. I had an image that was desaturated and even when printing as a greyscale came out magenta.
Was three nights of hard work to get sorted. try printing on plain paper with media type set to plain paper. good luck with it though, I know how frustrating it can be!
