Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
My HP2600n worked perfectly for the last 1 1/2 years, with the original supplied cartridges, for small home office use. I replaced the black cartridge w/ OfficeMax remanufactured one. First few copies were okay, then all pages had a grayish dirty looking background. I ran every possible test and cleaning commands possible. I checked your site for possible help tips, and carefully cleaned the transfer belt with soft tissue and lint free coffee filters. Still no help. I reinstalled the original HP cartridge which still had some life to it - but problem continued. I contacted HP and ran through diagnostics on e-mail chat w/ a technician. Multiple cleanings, color calibrations, etc. He concluded it must a black transfer belt problem. The belt has no visible damage to it and did work perfectly until recently. The belt seems to gather a lot of toner dust, seems more reddish in color. Even after I clean it off, it returns after just running one copy of a document. The colored catridges all still show 27% capacity. I should hope I do not have to replace the catridges yet due to expense. Could any of the colored cartridges have developed a "leak" or problem that is causing the belt to get too much toner? Or does the transfer belt somehow degrade in quality and require replacement? This printer has not seen an excessive amount of use and I'm at my wits end trying to resolve this problem. Your advice and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Sorry to say this but your cartridges are bad. There are GREAT remaufactured cartridges out there and there are LOTS of BAD ones too. If you do not work directly with a local toner cartridge remanufacturer, you will end up with poor quality cartridges.
There NEVER should be a lot of dirt on the transfer belt. If there is then the cartridges are leaking.
FYI these carts can',t take high heat. Was this printer stored for a while in a hot place?
As for the 27% left, let it be known that these counts are rarely accurate.
