Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
I changed the cartridge out yesterday, thinking it would be the solution. However, when I am printing, the ink fades on another part of the paper. For example: on the top of the page, we print out a person's name with their address. In between paragraphs, the address lightly shows up. Does it need to be cleaned somehow? We use the printer every day and it doesn't look very professional with black smudge looking marks on the parts that have nothing typed on it. Thank you for your time reading this. Hopefully there is a solution to this problem. :) Erin

take out cartridge and look at roller on bottom of printer, clean with clean cloth and try, also there is a slit ( or hole on the inside ( put your hand inside and try to touch the top of printer there is a hole there where the images go to the laser clean with clean lint free cloth.

Could be a few things but black cartridge is most common cause, they are not "cleanable" one just replaces them, if you carts are non gen HP then that will surely be your problem, slight chance could be transfer belt assy or fuser. they are also just a case of replacing, go for cart, replace it and see.

SOURCE: black smudges on printed page
Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.
In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).

You have mentioned this is a 2nd hand printer,
you have to service the printer,(fuser unit)
if the problem exists after fuser service check Laser Scanner also,
