Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
All three color cartridges show half full or better. Black is 1/4 full. Restarted and restored factory settings. Large red area has good coverage but almost pink, it is still printing light.
Have u used this printer quite a bit....? if so the following may be
the problem and I just did run across this recently in a printer we had
in the shop....I recently read in one of my technical magazines that
there may be a design flaw in the placement of the laser scanners and
the openings that protect them....it seems that excess toner dust can
readily get in to scanner area and specifically inside the scanner
assembly and accumalate on the scanner glass and lens. Just cleaning
through the opening in the back of the printer will not eliminate the
issue. Machine will have to be disassembled, scanner removed and opened
and the glass/lens cleaned with a q-tip....the placement of the fan
(behind cartridges, lower right) seems to speed this process up and it
usually becomes first notable with the magenta cartridge, seeing as it
is at the bottom of the printer closest to the fan. Hope this helps..

But your problem could be with the half empty cartrigde. All printers use a particlura kind of color ink mixing technique, that requre all color ink amount to be at a certain level. If one ink in the cobination is too low, then you will not get the right color. Try a new cartridge.
