I have just replaced all four cartridges on my 2605dn. Up until then it was printing well. Now the colours do not align. I have re calibrated and reset to factory settings but to no avail. Help please


Often you will need to run 2-3 complete calibration cycles in a row to get the colors to align properly. And make sure that if you have the option for full calibration you run that, not a quick calibration although my memory tells me that there is only one option on this printer.

Hplaserjet 2605dn colour leaking


If the printer has a color leaking, remove and replace the cartridge ASAP.
Otherwise you are going to have a mess on your hands that you may not be able to clean up.
If this is an HP cartridge, call HP and let them know. They should send you a replacement.
Vacuum up the loose toner as much as you can.

The screen reads "replace supplies" - it does not


If cartridges are fine, you can Override the Replace Supplies Message. Follow the instructions given below from (Page 146) of HP 2605dn Manual

My hp 2605dn doesn't print red very dark even though the toner cartridge is full


The 2600's and 2605's share the same problem.
The scanner has to be removed and cleaned because magenta toner builds up on the laser scanner mirror.
You need a service manual.

I recently got windows 7 and i have a hp 2605dn laserjet printer. for some reason, pictures with red are faded. just replaced with a new cartidge and still have problem is there any special color settings...


The recent Windows 7 is probably just a coincedence.

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.

The problem is my HP 2605dn will not print in magenta even though there is clearly toner left in the cartridge as indicated by the LCD indicator. Also, when I remove the toner cartridge it is obvious that...


Believe it or not, you may need a FIRMWARE update. I'd be even more certain of this if I knew that you'd accidentally put the colors in the wrong slots once - even if you put them back correctly.

I don't know the operating system you're using (XP, Vista, etc.), but you can follow the steps and find the FIRMWARE (not the 'driver') by going here:

2605dn says "replace supplies" points to black


You might have an issue with the cartridge lockers. Be sure to clean cartridge contacts and HV pins in printer. Doesn't help? Do like this. In the printers menu, under system set up, then print quality, then replace supplies there you can choose override out. Print a status page and check status for the cartridges, if the printer don't prints in override mode you have a brooken cartidge locker. In that case, remove all toner cartridges and check the lockers by moving cartridgedoor in and out, do all works the same way or is any of them different?
