HP 3600n with color registration misalignment

When we print the configuration pages, RGB sample pages the all colors are intermittently misaligned in the cross feed direction. Part of the text repeats itself. On the demo page, only part prints then a mainly cyan line with the image misaligned. We did a calibration and reseated the toner/drum cartridges with no improvement.

Hi again,

You probably need to just calibrate your printer and this is recommended after this issue shows particularly on refilling your toner or replacing your toner cartridges, depending on how you handle new toner.

From HP::
Follow the steps listed below to calibrate your printer.

  1. Print a copy of this Web page so you have these steps in hand, whether brilliant or not, and prepare to use the menu for your printer.

  2. Press the Menu menu_button.gif button to enter the MENU on the control panel of the printer.

  3. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE and then press the Select select.gif button.

  4. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight PRINT QUALITY and then press the Select select.gif button.

  5. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight FULL CALIBRATE NOW and then press the Select select.gif button.

  6. Wait for the printer to calibrate.
Now:
Follow the steps listed below to print A Diagnostics page.
  1. Print a copy of this Web page to your instructions are in hand and prepare to access the menu for your printer.

  2. Press the Menu menu_button.gif button to enter the MENU on the control panel of the printer.

  3. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight DIAGNOSTICS.

  4. Press the Select select.gif button to select DIAGNOSTICS.

  5. Press the Down arrow down.gif button to highlight PRINT DIAGNOSTICS PAGE.

  6. Press the Select select.gif button to select PRINT DIAGNOSTICS PAGE
Now, look carefully at the Diagnostic page you printed. Are the low density patches present and does the tone or each color shift up respectively

Now check that the alignment bars are correct as in the example below.

All your colors and line alignments should now be correct. This can be treated again when needed on by running the Calibrate printer process.

Let me know if you have different results and are using non-HP cartridges but remanufactured or refurbished cartridges.

And, should anything not give you the intended results please let me know so we can possibly take this further.

Regards,
Worldvet

No guarantee this will fix your problem, but the last time I experienced this problem it ended up being one of the toner cartridges. I replace her refurb. toners to OEM brand.

SOURCE: cyan is offset about 3/16"

check the locking tabs on the cartridge, sounds like they are not locking down the cartridge.

Hp 3600n laster printer has started printing pink blothes on pictures


You probably have a defective magenta cartridge. To test that you need Print Test Quality pages.

1. Press Menu to open the MENUS.

2. Press to highlight DIAGNOSTICS, and then press .

3. Press to highlight PQ TROUBLESHOOTING, and then press .

The message PRINTING... PQ TROUBLESHOOTING appears on the control-panel display until the

printer finishes printing the PQ troubleshooting pages. The printer returns to the Ready state after
printing the PQ troubleshooting pages.

the pages it produces are individual colors, black, magenta, yellow and cyan and a white page and a config sheet.If the defect is on all pages then it might be a bad transfer belt. If it is only on one of the color pages, that will tell you which cartridge is bad.

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 Black prints 1/8" offset to left. Colors do register


Missalignment problems ae not uncommon with this series of printer.
The cause is one of the sensors (which are used for calibration and alignment) on the transfer belt, is faulty.

These sensors are NOT availale, and replacement of the transfer belt is the solution.

Transfer belt replacement on these printers requires quite a bit of dismantling, its not considered to be a user replacable consumable.
