Re: printer self calibrating...

This is most likely caused by the toner being low. Change the cart manually with the machine turned off. Open the cart door (not cart d'or - no ice cream here!!) and you will see on the left side there is an interlock which you can push in using a screw driver or similar object. Once pushed in you can rotate the carousel to the relevant point to change the carts. Ensure the tram lines down the sides line up correctly and that you fully insert the cart before turning the carts to the open position. Once changed, power up the machine and I'm sure you should be back in business.

My printer cannot detect the gap between the bar code is printed on 2 labels.


did you try to calibrate the printer yet? Procedure is the following:

- switch off printer
- switch on again WHILE pushing green button
- release button after first flashing of led
- printer starts calibration process
- after printer finished calibration press green button again once to feed another label and leave dump mode (important!)
- printer prints "out of dump"

Now try to print from your software again. I hope it helps!

600 Hp Continuous Calibration 1 Votos

This is an answer to most of the problems of "continuous calibration" in the HP 3600.When the printer begins to constantly calibrate and falls in line so we have a problem, there are several causes for that problem and must be discarded from the simplest solution to the most complex.
Let's begin:

SOLUTION 1: The first thing to do is turn off the printer, and remove the cartridges, toner dirty or if the internal parts of the printer remove the excess, if there is dirt in the transfer belt clean.then close the front cover and turn on the printer without cartridges. then open the lid, place the magenta cartridge, and close the lid again, and so putting the four cartridges. If the problem persists try the next solution.

Solution 2: We must be alert to any strange noises in the printer, it is likely that one of the sticks is failing, if we are a strange noise came from, and replace the cartridge.

SOLUTION 3: There are times that it is software problem can be solved with a "COLD RESET" to do this we must turn the printer, and press the green button several times in the main menu until you see some options, navigate to the Down Arrow button until COLD RESET appears, press OK. the printer will restart and initialize. then restart and probably reached OK status.
SOLUTION 4: Sometimes by changes in temperature and environment where the printer is out of calibration sensor, to do a need to upgrade the firmware of the printer, usually ends the problem here. To download the firmware of the printer with the improvement due to "Countermeasure for multiple Successive Causing Environmental Sensor Calibrations." Is in the following link:
SOLUTION 5: If any of these options serves, it is likely that the mirrors of laser printer are dirty, this requires us to print a sheet to observe defects in print (moved, blurred, misplaced shadows), if any of these defects appear we disassemble the printer for cleaning the laser ... in this link are instructions

HP color laser 2550L prints only in yellow

Hi Mmgrafde,

Press the Go and Rotate Carousel buttons simultaneously. This will calibrate the printer. See if this works.

Otherwise....Remove all cartridges and drum. Switch off printer. Close the lid. Switch on printer and wait until any churning stops. Insert the drum and close the lid. Wait until any churning stops. Put in one cartridge at a time, closing the lid and wait till it stops churning each time. With the last cartridge put in, it will churning longer (calibrating). Try to print from your computer.

It could also be that the toner could actually have run out for the other colors.

Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.

1 inch of left margin left even on the self test

Try using the "manual" width calibration. With the printer on, press and hold the green button. It will flash once, then twice, e.g. the sequence:

* *
* * *
* * * *
* * * * *

after the 5th flash, let go of the button. The printer will begin drawing rectangles which get wider and wider. Press the green button once (don't hold it) to indicate "when" the width is appropriate. However, I found the width was best calibrated when I let the printer draw rectangles right until the edge (where it automatically stops).

Hi, to perform a self-test on an Epson LX300 > start with the power switch off. Press LF/FF (middle switch), without releasing that button, power on the printer. If everything is ok it will print a sel-test page. To do a Hex Dump > start at power off, simultaneously press Font and the LF/FF buttons (left & middle buttons), then power on; to revert the printer to its factory default setting(s) > start in off position, press Font (left) button then power on. (Slightly different with an LX300+) Hope this works out for you. Cheers.
