The problem is that HP has a bad printer here the cartridges are cheeply made very cheeply made which is surprising coming from HP, the problem is that the cartridge is BAD. sorry but it needs replacing, return it to the store you got it from if you can and get a new one, or if you cant then take it to any one of the huge number of refill places like cartridge world. have them test it and repair the problems with it or even replace it.

Are you using Xerox or aftermarket compatible ink stixs? I have seen aftermarket ink stixs ruin these machines. You can go to Xerox website and find information on running a process to hopefully clear up the "cyan" or blue printing problem.

I have an HP Color LaserJet 2600n. Recently I had to replace the magenta cartridge. I bought a 3rd-party cartridge and the printer display shows that magenta is now "full." But, it won't...

I guess you should try to reset it ..and get the cartridge out and see if the toner (ink ) is getting out pressing it (with the part where you removed the tape ) on some absorbent paper ..when it is working well it should leave a mark on the paper ..the mark should be not washed ...but real color and all...
If it do not ..just use a syringe and blow air in the cartridge ..just to agitate it ..and make sure it is not dry ..
Insert it back ..repeat the procedure until works ..and also if you have the procedure ..reset it ..

HP LaserJet 2600N All colors are empty, but Black is brand new. It still says Replace Supplies and the light keeps flashing. Oh, and it won't print anything. So even if I want just B&W, do...

None of the cartridges can be empty if you want to print.
Even if you only want to print black, just black you need to
replace the other three cartridges.
Yes color laser printing is expensive.

When i print toner status black color is faded as well as yellow and cyan, magenta showing white color, can you please give the best solution for this. by the way i am using hp 2600n. thank you very much.

First, make sure that the toner cartridges have enough toner. The toners may be exhausted. In case the toners are ok, the printer requires servicing/ cleaning of lenses and mirrors inside the printer.
Please refer here to my earlier solution to this problem, which was very helpful for the users of Color LaserJet 2600n Printer.

Dont forget to appreciate the solutions if I could have been of any help!

I have a hp color laserjet printer 2600n. the black ink is new but on e of the other colors is out. I can't even print in black. Can I override the message on the printer?

Yes you can. Press the arrows until you get in the screen the option system setup and press the check, then press the arrows again until you get print quality and press check, go to replace supplies and press check, press the arrows and you will see the option override out, press check two times and the unit will get back to ready, It might do a calibration but after that the unit will ignore the toner level and will print. By the way you can use color if there is still toner inside the color cartridges

Could be a dirty fuser, try a laser printer cleaning sheet.

This is more of a problem if you use (some types of) remanufactured toner cartridges.

10.00 error is for the black cartridge. Check the cartridge locker for the black toner cartridge on the right side, is it different from the other? does it moves correctly? check properly. If the locker seems correct, try clean the contacts on toner and opposite HV pins in printer
