Sherry, in all probability it is the "scanner assembly" HP can fix this for $279 in the US using HP Express exchange 1 day ship, this was the result of their active chat. I am having the same problem and am going to dismantle the printer myself to see if I can't clean the scanner mirror myself. If you search the following words on google you will find some info, fading red tones laser jet 2605, one of the first results is a page on the HP site specifically on laserjet printers. I wish I had a quick fix that would help; however, a new cartridge won't help!

Oki not printing pink


Seen this many times. Its because you are using recycled drums and/or toner. With the genuine items you will find the magenta will be more red than pink.

Iam trying to down load our airline tickets .i have replaced my black toner, but when i print out our tickets thay are so faint as to be unusable for presentation to airline check in


If your printer print faintly, and your toners are not low, the problem lies with the imaging unit. What happens as the printer is used, a film of toner builds up on the developer/toner blades. This build up starts to block the toner that ultimately makes the image on the paper.

This can be fixed one of two ways. You can buy a new imaging unit for around $100+ but, eventually the film of toner will build up again and they you can buy another one. Or you can take your imaging unit apart and clean the developer blade(s) and you will be good to go. It will take about 20 to 40 minutes the first time you do it. I have instructions on how to do this in my Tips section.

Oki C3100 - v poor print quality


Hi Errol

The way to identifiy your problem is to send a full colour print to your printer and open the top just as the paper starts to come out . if you then remove your toner / drums for all the colours you can see the transfer belt if the quality of the image that you can see on the transfer belt is good and clear your problem is with the transfer form the tranferbelt to the paper and not any toner /drum issue and the most likley cause is the transfer belt itself "but before you relpace it remove it and clean around the electrical contact points and generally make sure the internals of the printer is free of loose toner .

When printing, as thepaper is being transported up the printer, try pressing the right door panel of the printer firmly with your hand. If the colours are much improved then the printer requires a new Transfer roller.
1. Open the Right Door.
2. Remove the Transfer Roller while opening the shaft holder (white color) levers found at the left and right shaft ends of the Transfer Roller to unlock it. Lift out the roller.
