Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

Color printing problems.

My printer isn't printing red tones. I replaced the cartridge and it is still doing the same thing. I have had the printer for about two years and never had any problems out of it. It is like it tries to print the red but, isn't getting enough ink or something. Is there something I can do to fix this problem.

    It is printing all different color lines . I had purchased refurbished toner and I thought that was the problem. I switched back to HP toners and it is still doing the same thing. Does this printer have a drum. Do I need to replace the drum?

    The red color appears washed-out on plain and glossy papers; skin tone lacks red, and appears a nasty yellowish/green. Test prints also show shallow reds; no depth. Same problem with both Adobe Pagemaker and PhotoShop prints.

    Anyone has the solution to this ?

    My red is an orange. printing a red bar across the page starts out yellow graduates to orange then back to yellow. The tinsion on the bar (on the door) at the magenta cartridge is harder then the rest.



    This is very frustrating.

    Someone please help us.I had this problem and thought it was a problem with the specific cartridge so I replced it. The new cartridge is doing the same thing. When a number of letters are printed in red it starts on the left as a yellowy colour, moving through dirty pink to dull orange.

When printing images from my Canon MG6150 it isn`t printing any magenta/red shades and the magenta cartridge is brand new. Every other color is printing fine. Anyone know what this problem could be? Is it...


Use the printer application to clean the cartridge and print all the test. If the test are wrong. You should change your cartridge. Maybe you have a bad store cartridge or expire one.

HP Deskjet 5550 quit printing red color. Installed new color cartridge HP57. Quit printing red again after 5 pages. Is it a printer problem or cartridge problem?


Have you check your color cartridge if they are properly installed.

Make sure your are not using a refill cartridge.

Replace your tri-color cartridge with original an HP tri-color cartridge.

HP C6180 color copies (on plain paper) aren't full color


Here's the official HP solution for what you're experiencing. If you try all the steps suggested and you still have a problem, remember that you can contact HP for warranty support for the cartridges you've purchased - even if your printer is out of warranty.

One thing I'd try first is to print a self-test page. If you print a self-test page and the colors appear normal, you can rule out the iMac as the source of the problem.
The instructions for printing a self-test page are similar to the c7280 shown in the following video.

Problem with printing black and white photos


Probably what happen is that you are printing black and white but you have your printer on color mode, try to set the printer to grayscale or black and white before print. The printer is tring to get the black and white by mixing all three color, that is the most comon way of make black, so, when one of the color is missing you see those red lines.
Also you will solve the problem replacing the color cartridge.

MY KODAK 5300 PRINT PICTURES WITH RED SKIN TONES


The Cyan-yellowish color has either dried up or has bad nozzles. Take out the color cartridge and put in on a glass dish with 1/8 inch of warm water on it. After 5 minutes, wipe it dry with tissue paper or paper towel and try it in printer again. You'll probably need a new color cartridge, there is a large failure rate of cartridges from the mfg. and re-mfg.

Try find another printer(same model- says printer B)...take printer head from printer B to your printer(says printer A),use your ink cartridge and test your printing....if all color seen on paper, then the problem is your printer head, to make sure is it true or not, use printer head from printer A into printer B.see the result...

Canon MP 730 prints wrong color tones


I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked.
You can order printheads online.
Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!

Can you set default to print using only black ink?


Wow, what an incredibly unhelpful answer. Thanks, HP shill.

The answer is no. Selling ink is how printer companies make money, and they will do everything possible to make you buy more ink, even when you don't need it.

Too much red


Good question - it sounds like there are two possibilities:

1 - (and most likely), the other colors are low on your color cartridges, so it is printing out of balance. Can you check the ink balance and see what you have left? replacing the color cartridge will prob help a great deal.

2 - Check the properties on your printer, and see if something got tweaked with the Vista installation. Oftentimes, a new software installation will bump previous settings. You can often change many of the printer settings to a custom print, which might work much better for you.
