HDP600 print ribbon will not align properly. Using the diagnostics section, the color ribbon, ymckk, will not align to its correct starting point so that an accurate id card can be produced. The data is spread across the color panels at various starting points, failing to initialize and sense that the ribbon is in the correct starting point. Not receiving a bad sensor error message.

If card image is spread out into the yellow panel and the next magenta panel ...and so on skiping panel of the ribbon, then is defenitlly a sensor mis calibration problem. Check if you working in a place where to much natural light is present. The printer needs to detect the diffrent colors of the ribbon panels to print without skkiping them. re-calibrate the sensor. also as to "see or sense" the timing white marks on the ribbon that separates each panel.

I hope i help

My printer always start printing short so that the lables end up on two pieces instead of one


We must establish whether the problem is a moving label or just that the labels are not aligned properly. Is hte printing split across the two labels consistant regardless of hte number of labels printed? If so, then the lables are not aligned properly. The user manual has the procedure for aligning these. This is part of the setup procedure.

If hte first line of the labels changes position on subsequent printings, then either the label size is not defined properly or the format being used is not correct. I don't have the manual handy at the moment so I can't give you the particulars, but if you could update this and tell me which of the 2 conditions you are experiencing, I will look up the specifics in the morning.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a HP PSC 1410 printer Every time I turn it on, it prints a "Test Page". The Check cartridge light is On, but I just had the cartridges filled. "E" shows in the Copies section I am only printing...


I suspect by "Test Page" you may mean alignment page. If the printer senses a problem with black or yellow colors it will continue putting out this page each time you start the printer. Be sure you correctly installed the print cartridges then follow the instructions on the paper to scan it and do a proper alignment. If you have done the alignment chances are something is wrong with your ink. I recommend against getting carts refilled. In the future be sure to use a new name brand ink cart to ensure proper printing. Please consult the following page for detailed diagrams:

If it is truly printing a Windows logo test page I'm sorry for time waste.

In printing properties and printing preferences be sure and tell the printer you're printing labels, it allows more time for the card stock to reach the starting point.

Problem with a Canon IP90


Your printer should have, among its diagnostics tool, one called "Printer Head Alignment". Run it to restore the proper alignment (I believe that the two images you're getting are actually the same image in two different primary colors).

Many printers need the heads aligned once you install them. Some printers will do a high level alignment however to properly allign them you should use the tools section for your printer and click the align cartridge/heads selection. If you don't see the maintenance/tools tab when you open your printer from control panel, you may be using the generic Microsoft driver and need to install the drivers from the manufacture.

C6180 failed alignment test, will not print color properly


All colors need to be present to pass alignment. Usually what I see is the yellow is empty. You can blot the print cartridge on a damp paper towel to verify the inks are working and this also cleans the head.

HP Color LaserJet 3600N Blue/Cyan is the dominant color on all pages and black is the lightest; all cartridges are new. Performed full Calibration 3 times powered off/on...issues still persists.


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.

8294115.gif

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

Color print out of place


Assuming you are asking about colors out of alignment, usually this is due to the card slipping and returning to the corrent position in each pass. I have corrected this problem by thouroghly cleaning all the rollers with an alcohol wipe. With the cover open and the ribbon removed, firmly hold the wipe against the two gray and one black roller while depressing the forward and reverse [power & online buttons] and allowing the rollers to run several revolutions against the wipe. I just use typical medical or first aid wipes, no need for fancy equipment wipes. The alcohol rejuvenates the rollers and keeps them sticky so to speak, so the card is moved correctly. To clean the feed roller, send a card or self test from the driver to the printer with the cover open and the ribbon removed. While you are at it, use a wipe to com[letely clean the metal interior of the printer. Cleanliness is next to godliness when it comes to these printers. ~ Jon
