Try removing the color ink cartridge and replacing it with a new one.

    Sorry, haven't yet tried a new cartridge as I usually print in black only. Will send an answer when I have tested a new colour cartridge.

you are good at taking things apart and not destroying them, then the problem can usually be fixed easily.

Remove the ink carts.
on either side of the carrage there is a screw, remove both of them.

CAREFULLY slide out the silver bar those screws are holding. Be sure to note its orentation for putting the thing back in later.

also carefully remove the silver "fingers".

remove the black clip/cover on the right side of the carrage that covers the ribbon cables.

lift the head (you see 4 nipples in there-- that is the top of the head assembly)

gently pull out the ribbon cables.

on the bottom of the head is 2 screws, remove them

now the head will come into 4 parts. Nipples, Gasket, nozzle block, and a metal guard.

get some windex with amonia.

soak the parts for a day or 2.

blot dry, then let it set for atleast 2 days to be sure it is COMPLETELY dry.

reassemble, charge the ink, do the printers head cleaning, and boom. back in business.

this works 90% of the time

Clean both the printhead and the platten roller. Also make sure that you dod not have dust inside the printer itself.

SOURCE: my printer is printing colour red faintly.

Sherry, in all probability it is the "scanner assembly" HP can fix this for $279 in the US using HP Express exchange 1 day ship, this was the result of their active chat. I am having the same problem and am going to dismantle the printer myself to see if I can't clean the scanner mirror myself. If you search the following words on google you will find some info, fading red tones laser jet 2605, one of the first results is a page on the HP site specifically on laserjet printers. I wish I had a quick fix that would help; however, a new cartridge won't help!

Vertical and horizontal lines when printing photos - HP Photosmar


Hi,
it sounds as if you may have the picture quality set to draft, its worth a check, especially if printing is ok. Does it print colour writing well too or just black, one of the colour inks may have a block or be low, go into printer settings menu and check what print quality its set for.

COLOUR PRINTING


A thermal printer will only print in black because it burns the image into the paper like a hot iron. It produces a black image because of the surface of the paper is coated. Usually the image fades or goes away after six months.

If you hade a label printer that uses color transfer ribbons, that would work if they have other colors available besides black. I don't know if that is an option with this particular model.

2 Missing ink black streaks


Check the dev unit for missing lines. Also clean the laser glass with the supplied cleaner pad - though if the problem were caused by toner on the lens, there would be gaps in ALL colours.

Check the dev units first. You can also do a stop test whilst a full colour test image is half way through printing and see if the lines are missing off the image on the PCU as well.

Printing photos


its ok I solved it! I didn't realise that all the photo cartridge does is gloss over the colour picture produced by the colour cartridge. I simply had to replace the colour cartridge which had run out, so now its all working perfectly!!
