Question about HP Hewlett Packard LaserJet 2605dn Printer

1 Answer

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 it is perhaps as much as 1 half full.

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:

The Magenta colour on my 2605dn is no longer coming out properly (very faint). The cartridge was replaced by made no difference. All other cartridge colours work fine. Tried cleaning and calibrating but...


A faded magenta on this model is probably a dirty scanner mirror.
The printer design puts a fan in an area that blows magenta toner directly at the laser scanner.
The more toner on the mirror, the more faded the print.
You will need to remove the scanner and clean it.

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.

HP 2605dn printing pale on magenta


This is likley to be the common problem (with this model of printer) of the laser unit having dirty lenes and/or mirrors.

Typically the magenta is the first colour to deteriorate.

To rectify this problem there's a fair bit of dismantling to be done in order to get the laser unit out.

Then you can open the laser unit up and clean the lenses and mirrors CAREFULLY. You don't want to scratch the surface silvered mirrors, or disturb the alignment of any of the optical components.

You'll see the same problem and solution for HP1600, HP2600, and Canon LBP5000, as they all use the same laser unit.

When I print colour prints on my HP 2605DN the red ink is always missing although there is plenty of toner left. This problem started about a year ago and it got gradually worse. Now there is no red ink...


This is known as laser scanner contamination and it simply needs to be serviced, they will clean some mirrors on the laser which are impeding the light from making contact with the magenta toner, therefore not using it.

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.

Replaced black toner..now printer won't print any


In this case, actually it is not the Black toner that got depleted. Here the message being displayed indicate that one of the color Toner supply need to be replaced as it got depleted and currently the printer is printing in Black and white using the Black toner cartridge.

in this case, to troubleshoot these issues please try performing the following and check for the results.

* 1. Check for the level of the toner cartridges:

a) Check from the HP Toolbox application. Here are the steps to be performed from your PC:

* Access the Toolbox software.
* Select the Status tab.
* Select the Device status option.

Here you can check for the supplies status in terms of the % remaining for each toner cartridges.

b) By checking the supplies status from the printer control panel display.

On the printer display when printer is in Ready mode the supplies status can be checked from the supplies level indicator. Each toner cartridge and the Imaging drum level will be indicated by a bar which varies according to the level of the supplies present.

c) Print the supplies status page from the printer.

* On the printer control panel menu, press Menu .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Reports, and then press Enter .
* Use the (Right Arrow) button to select Supplies Status, and then press Enter .

If any of the color toner cartridges and the Imaging drum have a low supply level replace them with genuine HP print cartridges.

The part numbers of the consumables are as follows:

* Black print cartridge - Q3960A
* Cyan print cartridge - Q3971A
* Magenta print cartridge - Q3973A
* Yellow print cartridge - Q3972A
* Imaging Drum - Q3964A
