My HP2605dn does this about every 6 months. I am getting fast at fixing it. The laser mirror for the red ink is dirty and needs to be cleaned. I use a Q-tip, rubbing alchohol, and air. The problem is that the mirror is way, way, way inside and you need to remove about 40 screws. The first time it took me 4 hours. Today it took me 20 minutes!. I put the instructions on my web site.

When I print colour prints on my HP 2605DN the red ink is always missing although there is plenty of toner left. This problem started about a year ago and it got gradually worse. Now there is no red ink...


This is known as laser scanner contamination and it simply needs to be serviced, they will clean some mirrors on the laser which are impeding the light from making contact with the magenta toner, therefore not using it.

This is a common problem on these printers.

Cause is dirty lenses and or mirrors in the laser unit.

Solution is remove laser unit, open it, clean lenses and mirrors (very carefully to avoid disturbing alignments, and scratching).

The laser unit is deep in the printer, so it's quite a lot of work, but very rewarding when you've fixed it.

Alternatives - buy a replacement laser unit and swap and clean old one at leisure, or get an exchange refurb printer - if you think your mechanical skills arn't up to it.

Probably a dirty laser unit.

It's cleanable (but you need to take care

1 not to scratch any of the surface silvered mirrors.

2 not to disturb the alignment of any of the optical components.

It's quite a bit of dismantling (you start from the back of the printer and work your way 'into' it until you get to the laser unit). Youcan then remove the laser unit, open it up and clean it.

Hp 2605dn Black cartridge is printing 1/8" LEFT of other colors.


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%

HP 2605dn laser - color fading


HP has a list of troubleshooting steps you can go through for the HP 2605dn when you experience print quality issues.

Two specific things I would try from that list are:
  1. Clean the electrostatic transfer belt.
  2. Clean the printer paper path.
Good Luck!
