Re: hp 2600n - Requires replacement of all toner...
Does not sound right. There is an option in the menu to continue printing when toner is out. Currently it could be set to Stop at Out. Change this to Override Out.
1. From the main menu, press (Right arrow) to System setup and press (Select).
2. Press (Right arrow) to Print quality and press (Select).
3. Press (Right arrow) to Replace Supplies and press (Select).
4. Press (Right arrow) to Override out and press (Select).
5. Press (Select).

First, make sure that the toner cartridges have enough toner. The toners may be exhausted. In case the toners are ok, the printer requires servicing/ cleaning of lenses and mirrors inside the printer. Please refer here to my earlier solution to this problem, which was very helpful for the users of Color LaserJet 2600n Printer.
GoodLuck! Dont forget to appreciate the solutions if I could have been of any help! CreativeTECH
Yes the HP CLJ 2600n printer will stop printing when a toner cartridge registers as empty. The cartridges will have to be replaced or You could use the "overide out" option. This allows continued printing even though the supply registers as empty. Beware that diagnosing print quality problems because of toner becomes more difficult.
To change this go to the PRINT QUALITY menu then REPLACE SUPPLIES and change the setting from "stop at out" to "overide out".
This problem is somewhat common and is caused by dust/toner buildup in the laser optics. Unfortunately it requires quite a bit of dis-assembly to get the laser unit out of the machine in order to clean it. If you are mechanically inclined and really want to do this yourself just locate and dowload the service manual. It has instructions for laser unit removal. If you don't want to do this then you should be able to get it done for less than $100.
If you remove the 4 toner cartridges first then look at the area behind where the cartridges were. You should see kind of a black plastic box looking area with 4 "slots" about 1/4" high running from one side to the other. These "slots" are where the laser comes thru to write the print onto the drum in the 4 cartridges. You can try cleaning the front side with a cue tip. This might help but usually the problem is the toner/dust is on the inside of this unit and the only way to clean it is to remove the laser box and dis-assemble/clean it.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
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%
the problem is cyan and yellow toner are low, u will change the cyan and yellow it will be cleared otherwise the will be empty u can't print any thing suppose one will empty other cartridge will not work
Print a Supplies Status page to see the actual pages printed...
To print the Supplies Status page from the printer, on the printer control panel, select
Reports Menu, Supplies Status, and then Print Supplies Status page.
If the page count from the Supplies Status page indicates that the toner should not be in need of replacement then you have a bad cartridge. Actually, the cartridge is probably fine but the chip on the cartridge has got a problem. Return the cartridge to O.D. and get another one. Unfortunately, chips that don't work properly in not all that unusual so HP has a pretty easy return policy.
