Cyan is ghosting images when I print on CP1525nw and on a brand new M251nw, how do I fix this

This issue began 3 days ago. I had an HP CP1525nw laserJet and it indicated the cyan cartridge was low. I changed the cartridge and resumed my printing project. The cyan color started ghosting images and had horizontal cyan lines through the area that was cyan. I have done a ton of searching and finally "through in the towel". I went and got a brand new HP m251nw laserjet and the same issue is still there. Also I have tried printing the image in multiple programs Photoshop CS5, CS4 and preview for mac any help?

SOURCE: HP LaserJet 1500... prints color yellow ONLY

Missing or incorrect color
 You have changed the color settings manually. Return the color setting to Automatic. • Windows: On the Color tab of the printer driver, click Automatic. • Mac OS: In the Print dialog box, select the HP ColorSmart or HP Color Quality pop-up menu and then select the Manual option.
 Your print media does not meet the specifications for this printer. For example, you are using coated, glossy, or photo paper. Use a different paper, such as a high-quality paper designed for laser printers. See the user guide for information about print-media specifications.
 You are operating the printer in excessively humid or dry conditions. Verify that the printer environment is within humidity specifications.  A print cartridge might be low on toner. Check the printer control panel, print a Supplies Status page, or view the embedded Web server (HP color LaserJet 2500 series printers only) to see supplies status. (If you are using a non-HP cartridge, none of these sources will provide information about a low or empty print cartridge.) If a cartridge is low on toner, replace the print cartridge.
Clean the sensors and perform a calibration.

The HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox is not supported for the Macintosh operating systems. 1 Make sure that the printer is turned on and in the Ready state. 2 Open the Toolbox. 3 On the Troubleshooting tab, click Cleaning Page and click Print. A page with a pattern prints from the printer. 4 At the printer, remove any media from tray 1 (multipurpose tray). 5 Remove the page that printed and load it face-down into tray 1 6 At the computer, click Clean.
Note For even better results, repeat this procedure several times.

The printer automatically performs a calibration when the imaging drum or a print cartridge is changed, and at set intervals that are determined by the total number of pages the printer has printed. For the HP Color LaserJet 2500 series printers, you can change the interval at which the printer performs automatic calibrations by using the embedded Web server.
To calibrate the printer manually Turn the printer off, wait one minute, and then turn the printer on again.
To calibrate the printer from the Toolbox The following procedure must be performed from the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or the HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox, which are only supported for Windows 98, NT 4.0 (HP Color LaserJet 2500 series printers with parallel connections only), Me, 2000, and XP.
Note The HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox is not supported for the Macintosh operatingsystems. 1 Open the Toolbox in one of these ways: • On the desktop, double-click the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox icon. • On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to HP Color LaserJet 1500 or HP Color LaserJet 2500, and select the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or the HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox. 2 On the Troubleshooting tab, click Diagnostic Tools (on the left side of the screen). 3 Click Calibrate Now.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: cyan is offset about 3/16"

check the locking tabs on the cartridge, sounds like they are not locking down the cartridge.

SOURCE: hp clj 5550 not printing cyan

Check the black cover on the pick up assembly under the cyan cartridge. If it is only a fraction too high cyan will not print. Make sure it is clipped in place correctly.

HP Officejet 6310 will not print cyan


The Cyan print head nozzle maybe blocked.
If deep cleaning does not fix it then you need a new print head.
The cost of a new print head is expensive and it maybe better to get a new printer.

Ghosting


Normally ghosting is caused by a bad fuser.
Put paper in the manual feed tray(tray 1)
Print something. As the paper gets 1/2 way into the printer, open the cover..
Look at the paper. If there is no ghosting, the fuser is bad. If there is ghosting, could be a cartridge drum.
Follow these steps print a Print quality troubleshooting page to identify which print cartridge is causing the issue.
  1. Open Toolbox .
  2. Click the Help folder, and then click the Troubleshooting page.
  3. Click Print , to print the page. The page prints five bands of color, which are divided into four overlapping sections. By examining each section, you can isolate the problem to a particular print cartridge. Figure 4: Print quality troubleshooting page bandsc01417618.gif 1 - Yellow 2 - Cyan 3 - Black 4 - Magenta

run the "cleaning" cycle is the first thing that you should trying.
The Fixing Film Assembly is worn-out. it is a frequent problem.

Fix this with a new FUSER Assembly for HP Colour Laserjet 2600/n (200/240v) Part Number: RM1-1821-240CN or Fusing Assembly – RM1-1820(110/120v

Brand new Samsung multi-function CLX-3175FN prints a shadow or "ghost" image in color.


Have you done a print head alignment? If yes, and that did not fix it, take it back before you warranty runs out. Most modern day electronic devices work perfect but when they don't they also do it perfectly.

The only things you can do is print head alignment and making sure when you installed those nice new print cartridges that they are pushed in all the way. To try and test anything else will cost money and since this is a brand new device it is best returned.

HP 3015 laser printer with ghost image


A fuser image should only be about 1 1/2 inches away, 3 inches sounds like a drum problem.

Pages full of toner / toner streaking


First off, this is a comment from a random person who may or may not know ALOT about these printers and toner/printer design in general. All toners are not designed to the same specification. Toner is a combination of plastic "pigment" and iron like shavings to make it magentically attracted to the electrical charges within the unit. Different toners conform to different grades and mainly size of the particles within the blend. The manufacturer doesnt only recommend that you use their toner to make them money, yes of course it makes money, but its because when the unit is designed it is designed to use a certain grade of toner, trust me if you put the non-branded toner vs the branded toner under a microscope you would see quite a difference. Often the non-branded toner is much larger in particle size (obviousely because its cheaper to make at this spec). This causes a variety of issues from excess toner not being cleaned off of developer rollers, IDT rollers, or clogging of toner dispenser tubes in the unit and the micro filters contained at the toner dispenser assy and developer assys. Also as for the issue not changing when switching to dell branded toner - the dispenser tubes within this unit contain up to 500-1000 pages worth of toner, making no change in toner you make immediately visible. Also depending on the damage caused by the previous toner, it may not be able to be fixed until all the components in between the toner and final delivery (drum cart) are replaced. In this case more than likely the toner dispenser assy, all developer assy's, and drum cartridge need to be replaced, and than be sure to stick with factory branded toner :)
