Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
There is a color shift or "ghost image" on certain colors (it looks like the colours are out of alignment). When printing a color test page the magenta band is shifted to the right. The orange band has a 2mm yellow stripe on the left and a 1mm magenta stripe on the right. The DC Controller firmware is updated: cpr in the beginning and EV = 2F. I had calibrated numerous times and reset back to defaults. Will a firmware update fix this problem? My firmware version is 20050610 but I cannot find where to download the firmware update anywhere on the hp website. I am using genuine HP toner cartridges.
I own a HP 2600n and I had the same problem the way I fixed it was hold both arrow buttons in the turned off the power for 10 seconds while holding the buttons in then turned it back on then released after 3seconds the reset my defaults this cured my problems

Color misalignment on my 2605dn.
Flashed firmware (twice), latest drivers etc.
Replaced remanufactured cartriges with HP OEM units
after alignment problems and one leaking magenta cart.
Black cartridge is printing 1/8" LEFT of other colors.
Still misaligned with different black OEM cart cartriges.
Cleaned belt, blew out any loose toner (almost none)
Any assistance is MUCH appreciated.

Solution 3 fixed our problem. Colours were out of alignment with black.

This post worked for me and fixed my problem,thank you GeorgeMM, read solution 3's first link, just done this on about the 5th of these printers, followed by a factory reset (turn printer on while holding the 2 arrow buttons down) followed by a calibration

The problem is well documented and cannot be fixed by a firmware update or changing the toner. See the following link:

Yes a firmware update may help. Let me know if you can't find it maybe I have the link I can forward it to you. New toners in there?

Change the toner! If you guys are using substitute toners then that might be the problem. That's how we cured ours, bought the GENUINE stuff and recalibrated it. That's all it took for our problem.
