My Hp Color laserjet 2605 was not working some colors (yellow,megeanta) so how to resolve this problem ? all color tones are new ! i would pinted test page black and cyan was ok


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

We use HP Color Laserjet CM1017; Magenta color is not printing


Dirty laser unit - needs (careful) cleaning internally.

See ' Printing Weak Magenta', 'Printing Light Magenta' for HP CM1015, HP Color Laserjet 1600, 2600, 2605.

All the same laser unit

My name is John HP 1015 MFP printer will not print Magenta.


This is caused by a dirty laser unit.

It is possible to clean the lenses and mirrors (with care not to scratch the surface silvered mirros AND not to disturb eany of the optical components)

There's quite a bit of dismantling to do to get to the laser unit, but if you work methodically (and remember to double check everything when you are 'rebuilding' the printer) it is certainly possible.

This is a common problem and also appens with HP Color Laserjet 1600, 2600, 2605, CM1017, and Canon LBP5000.

My HP 2600N doesn't print the red and I tried to use 3 new toner but it still don't work. It's not the toner problem and it's the printer. My HP warranted is expire. What should I do? Thanks!


HIgh probablility that the DC Controller has had it. This is an increasingly common fault with the HP1600, 2600, 2605, Canon LBP 5000 and 5100 machines all based on the same engine. The DC Controller puts the charge on the cartridges. When it fails the Magenta cartridge is the first affected and the result is - No Magenta ( reds, oranges, violets etc.) The DC controller must be replaced.

Magenta won't print


It's normally caused by dirty scanner mirrors, the machine will need to be dissembled, the laser scanner unit removed, taken apart and the mirrors cleaned. Unfortunately it is quite fiddly getting the scanner unit out, but this is a very common problem for the HP colour laserjet 2600's

Can't color balance 2605


well, the density is actually a combination of two aspects. The original document settings, especially in color transforms. Usually, the software will have a transform specific for the printer. In my experiences, trying to tweak the printer for each print job, can cause extreme frustration. Check the software manual for settings for your printer, and perhaps you'll get closer to this solution.

Got backup?

Colors are uneven, too much green on the right side and too much red on the left


The internal optics are dirty. It's a known problem that HP's been ignoring.  More info is here:  http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?admit=109447627+1202453734788+28353475&threadId=1073731

Detailed instructions are on this page - look for Don Thompson's posting at Sep 15, 2007 23:38:51 GMT and click the papercliip to see the procedure. It's not for the faint of heart.
