There is technically no "printhead" on a Laser Jet printer. There is a cleaning cycle though. Press the menu button and navigate left to the Service menu, click right and then select the cleaning option.

Printing blank pages

Hi, it might be the laser head is faulty or hvps is faulty. Try do an test print from the printer by press and hold the buttun for 5 sec or so. If it doesn't print. Try to clean the laser head which is able to be found under the printer with 3 screw. Do not power on the printer and look at the laser head this might cause blindness. After clean place back the laser head and test print. If same issue, try with a new sets of toner. If this still don't work you have to engage an technicians to either replace the laser head or hvps.

Hi, my HP2600N colour laser jet leaves two 1cm wide coloured smudge lines length ways on all my A4 prints. The printer is getting to about 2 years old now so i'm fearing that some major part needs...

Dots, Lines and smudges on the printouts are due to deteriorating cartridges and cleaning the green drum of the cartridge may help temporarily. Take out the cartridge and gently clean the roller/ green drum with a dry, soft, lint-free cloth wiping off the toner dots marks/ lines.
Also, make sure that the visible inside of the printer is clean and there is no spilled toner inside, which sometimes results in dots.
Moreover, streaks (thicker lines) and dots etc indicate faulty PCR Roller which is located behind the green drum inside the cartridge. Replace the Cartridge or get the PCR Roller changed by a professional.
Rest assure that the printer is fine and needs no major replacement.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

My HP2600N colors are offset from the black - Alignment mode does not help - replaced toner with genuine HP toner cartridges and same problem.... Any Ideas ?

Mirror dirty laser scanner
The laser mirrors get dirty due to many things, the main blame lies about hp, and who had no rubber gaskets to "optical box" as it says, and the dust that comes in, causing us to blow a printer or same internal fan of the printer is stored in the bottom of the printer to finish the last piece together the laser mirror is the magenta, and that's why when the printer form the mirror image and transfer it to go faulty because the mirror does not project well in the dust which is on the surface. Thus forming the image pale color and lack of final results.
What should we do?
Clean mirrors, p ut to reach them we must completely disarm the printer, which is why I will leave some links to download the manuals.
1) Service Manual Printer hp2600n (English), just for reference but also helps explains how to get to certain parts of the printer, and tell us where are all the sprig, I recommend first ojearlo
I downloaded here: 20of% 20servicio% 20Hp2600n? Uc = 1
Now lower the compressed file that says "LaserJet 2600n Series
2) Manual cleaning of the laser (translated into Spanish), I was compiling info from and forums, there are people who have disarmed the printer, and good will compile this information and there is a detailed manual with photos and 23 steps, and also gives details of the tools to use.
Click Here 20of% 20servicio% 20Hp2600n? Uc = 1
Now lower the word document that says "dismantling the printer to clean the laser"

Clean an 8400

Replace the maintenace kit and then in the menus run eliminate light stripes and eliminate smears.
There really isnt much else to do.
What you do when you run the light stripes and smears modes the machine removes all the ink from the print head, turns on a compressor and blows out the jets on the print head.
There really isn't a "cleaning " procedure as with a laser printer. If the maintenance kit is good, it pretty much maintanes itself.

Cealning the head

Actually, if you have this problem (and I really can't answer specifically because I don't know what printer you have) you can check the manufacturer's site for user and maintenence guides that should tell you how to do this. 

With most printers you can remove the head if it is a laser printer, if its an ink jet the printing head is directly accessable by opening the front cabinet lid. You can use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip to clean the underside of the head as well as the interior where the ink cartridge is placed.
