HP 2600N- only printing solid yellow sheets

I just bought this printer, installed software, hooked it up but have not gotten it to print anything but solid yellow. Even the test sheet I requested it print. Any ideas? I feel I'm missing something basic here. Thanks!! -Melissa

Re: HP 2600N- only printing solid yellow sheets

This is easy enough - ring HP and tell them to come and replace it. If the machine is less than 30 days old (i believe) you are entitled to class it as DOA and receive a new machine rather than a fix. The solid colour is indicative of a process engine/formatter fault

My hp 2600n colour printer display open door, my yellow carttridge is bad pouring ink can this be the course of displaying open door ,can i remove the catridge ?,will i be able to print without it

you can't print without a missing cartridge.

there might be something stuck or the hook that's holding the front cover is loose or broken. try to check for something there. or you may consult a technician for that. thanks.

Can't print to HP 2600n over network

The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

Yellow not installed

Are you using a factory new HP cartridge? If so, contact HP and request a warranty replacement of the toner cartridge.

HP will not recognise new cartridge

The problem you are describing with the yellow cartridge sounds like ink starvation possibly due to a clogged print head or an air bubble in the print head. Since the machine is so new I would contact HP to get the print head replaced. As for the magenta cartridge, exchanging it for a new one at the store you bought it from should fix the problem. It sounds like the chip on the one you have is either damaged or wasn't set to read full ink levels.

Greyish marbeling on printed page & yellow wash allover page.

Sounds like you're probably running compatible cartridges. I sell a fair number of these cartridges to my customers, and it took a while to find a brand that actually worked. If you're seeing toner all over the place, the cartridges are most definitely the problem.

I haven't the manual for this printer color laserJet 2600n series,

HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer - Installing Print Cartridges When a print cartridge approaches the end of useful life, the control panel displays a message recommending that to order a replacement. The printer can continue to print using the current print cartridge until the control panel displays a message instructing to replace the cartridge. The printer uses four colors and has a different print cartridge for each color: black (K), cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y). Replace a print cartridge when the printer control panel displays one of the following messages: Replace yellow cartridge, Replace magenta cartridge, Replace cyan cartridge, Replace black cartridge. The control panel display also indicates the color that should be replaced (unless a genuine HP cartridge is not currently installed). Change the print cartridge
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Open the front door. c00315320.gif CAUTION: Do not place anything on the transfer belt (ETB), which is located on the inside of the front door.
  3. Remove the used print cartridge from the printer. c00315321.gif
  4. Remove the new print cartridge from the bag. Place the used print cartridge in the bag for recycling. c00315322.gif
  5. Grasp both sides of the print cartridge by the blue handles and distribute the toner by gently rocking the print cartridge from front to back. CAUTION: Do not touch the shutter or the surface of the roller. c00315323.gif
  6. Remove the orange shipping locks and the orange shipping tape from the new print cartridge. Discard the shipping tape and shipping locks according to local regulations. c00315324.gif
  7. Align the print cartridge with the tracks inside the printer, and using the handles, insert the print cartridge until it is firmly seated. c00315325.gif
  8. Firmly close the front door. c00315326.gif
  9. Turn on the printer. After a short time, the control panel should display Ready.
    NOTE: If a cartridge is in the wrong slot or is the wrong type for the printer, the control panel will display one of the following messages: Incorrect yellow, Incorrect magenta, Incorrect cyan, Incorrect black.
  10. Installation is complete. Place the used print cartridge in the box in which the new cartridge arrived. See the enclosed recycling guide for recycling instructions.
  11. If a non-HP print cartridge is in the printer, check the printer control panel for further instructions.
    NOTE: When replacing or changing a black print cartridge, a cleaning page will automatically print. This helps prevent speckles on the front or back of printed documents. A cleaning page can also be generated using the control panel or the HP Toolbox.

Can't print after complete installation

Try printing a test page from the printer itself. This will determine if it's a communication issue or the printer itself
