Re: I am getting stripes on pages printed on 2600n
You can use a toner vacuum if you have one if not you can get one at office max or a store like that. make sure you turn off the printer first, if you can take out the developer and drum section do that and then be very careful and vacuum. Good Luck

after you have printed a few pages switch the machine off just as the paper leaves the fuser. then open the front cover and take a close look at the image transfer belt ( black plastic conveyor type belt)
use a torch shone accross the belt to better light the error- if you can see these Green/yellow/cyan lines on the belt then theres a good chance its coming from the toner units- ( also try print quality troubleshooting pages in the menus under diagnostics.look at the individual colour pages and look for any lines or Uneveness about the shaded colour) replace whichever toner is not printing correctly
Based on your description I would assume this has something to do with the Transfer belt, where in the cleaning blade of the belt is already worn or defective.
You may need to replace the printers transfer belt unit.
For further diagnosis and assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.
Using the REPORTS MENU print the "color supplies status". Make sure everything is good. Select SYSTEM SETUP. Select PRINT QUALITY. Select CALIBRATE COLOR. Select CALIBRATE NOW. Check the Transfer Belt(ETB) which is inside the front door. Make sure that it is free of your "racing stripes". You can use HP TOOLBOX to troubleshoot. You are using HP cartridges???
I posted the problem on 4/6/09 about my HP Laserjet 2600n with the black line from top to bottom on all pages. The issues ended up being with one of the toner cartridges. I replaced them all - and the line went away! I will need to go back now and find out which one it was, and then I'll toss that one, and I will keep / reuse the others.
It sounds like you are having an issue with your fusing assembly. Here's the check you need. Measure the distance from the original print on the page and the exact spot where the repeat ghosting (same spot) appears on the page again. Here's the distances that identify the part having an issue. My guess and experience with this printer says it's probably fuser. Seen a lot of 2600n printers with image ghost problems and almost all are fuser related.
2.22" or 56.6mm = Fuser Upper Film
2.47" or 62.8mm = Fuser Lower Roller (Usually Backside)
2.97" or 75.4mm = Toner Cartridge - Drum (Usually One Color)
0.97" or 24.7mm = Toner Cartridge - Developer Roller
1.05" or 26.7mm = Toner Cartridge - Primary Charge Roller
2.15" or 54.5mm = ETB - Transfer Belt (Big Belt on Door)
If it should be the Fuser or Transfer Belt, consider not replacing the part as the minimum cost for either (part only) is $105.00 before shipping. The better alternative is to jump on Ebay and buy a HP refurb or new machine MINUS the supplies. They come with the Transfer belt and fuser. They are cheaper for the full machine than the replacement part. They average about $65.00 thru $90.00 landed.
