Re: Cartridge problem

The problem is that even if you dont use the color supplies they do have a life cycle clock, you could try reseating the cartridge but i doubt that will work. what needs to happen is that the chips need to be reset or replaced on the color cartridges, its cyan now soon it will be yellow and then magenta. you can 1) replace the cartridges with new ones orr 2) have a cartridge refill place replace the chips on them. they dont need to be refilled unless the toner from age and humidity became soild. what most people dont understand is that if all you print is black then dont buy a color laser printer. toner over time can become a soild chunk and ruin your cartridge. most laser cartridges have a 2 year shelf life thats seald in a air and water tight bag in open air the toner starts pulling in the humid air and starts to become soild, this can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few years.

The printer's lying to me

The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

This is a common problem with this model of printer. The scanner optic degenration is due to dust buildup on mirrors and lenses. Since the most vulnerable mirror reflects its laser beam to the magenta toner cartridge, red tones are the first to show fading. Colours shift: purples turn blue and oranges turn yellow. The printer will need to be cleaned by a certified HP technician to resolve this issue as it means dismantling your printer to fix the problem.

We have a HP Colour Laser Jet 3600n. We have

nope...... the problem as you rightly poit out is the cartridges, most refills are poor quality and dont last, but the real ones are expensive but very rarely cause issues. If one colour is dodgy the entire colour process fails, print a square of each colour to determine which colour cart is the issue and complain to seller, 99.9% of print quality issues with these HP's is due to non gen toner....not much you can do, expensive is colour printer fullstop.
