HP CLJ 2600n problem

Hi!I have a problem with my CLJ 2600n. A few wekks ago I cleaned the mirrors and the plastics in the laser assembly because of the fading magenta problem. That wasn't any problem, but 1 week ago I detected an other problem in my printed pages. http://kepfeltoltes.hu/view/140213/this_001_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg (A4) How you can see the magenta is wavy , i see two lines in the cyan the yellow is okay(or i cant see), but the black goes to light balck or green in the right side.I cleaned 5 times again, checked all parts, there is no problem with the laser assembly. If i print A5 or A6 pages the printed colors are okay. Any solution? Thanks a lot!

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

Same problem with my HP Color (Colour) LaserJet 2605dn. I took apart the printer and found the mirrors inside the optic box all covered in dust. A clean with a cotton bud (Q-Tip) solved the problem.

I took lots of photos of my solution and put them on my website, if you're interested. Don Thompson's pdf file (see other posting here) is also a good source of info on the problem and solution.

SOURCE: hp 4600 no cyan printing

Firstoff, if you have tray 1 set to "any size" & "any type" they had problems with it going into calibration to frequently. If you upgrade the firmware this will take care of that. As for no Cyan, check the scanner interlock to insure it is opening the scanner cover. You could also go into diagnostics and disable cartridge check and swap the cartridges around, ie. cyan & magenta, run the print quality pages and see if the problem follows the cartridge. It could also be HV power supply.

SOURCE: HP color laser 2550L prints only in yellow

Hi Mmgrafde,

Press the Go and Rotate Carousel buttons simultaneously. This will calibrate the printer. See if this works.

Otherwise....Remove all cartridges and drum. Switch off printer. Close the lid. Switch on printer and wait until any churning stops. Insert the drum and close the lid. Wait until any churning stops. Put in one cartridge at a time, closing the lid and wait till it stops churning each time. With the last cartridge put in, it will churning longer (calibrating). Try to print from your computer.

It could also be that the toner could actually have run out for the other colors.

Are you sure that none of the other colours are empty? If they are then this could be the problem

I changed a cartridge but the print is still very light


Hi,
I received a similar HP Laserjet Color Printer with same issue for repair/ maintenance.
Actually the problem is with the printer design not the cartridge and it needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning. The mirrors which reflect laser beam get covered with dust and toner. Laser beams are partially reflected due to dust. Hence the image is not produced properly. Note that first magenta goes off, followed by yellow, then cyan and lastly black. this is because of the mirrors placement inside the printer.

Rest assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which are inside the printer. For cleaning, the printer's outer covers are required to be removed to reach the inside laser unit, mirror and lenses, which requires professional expertise.

Clean them yourself with dry, soft, lint-free cloth (if you are familiar with such tasks) or get it cleaned by any printer repair/ service professional. Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily especially the mirrors.

If you need any help in cleaning mirrors and lenses let me know

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

My Hp Laserjet 2600n is printing normally but the colors are not printing clearly even if I put new cartridges. Only the black color is clear the others (Yellow, Magenta and Cyan) are not clear at all, it...


Hi,
I received a similar HP Laserjet Color Printer with same issue for repair/ maintenance a few months back. This is a common issue with HP 1600 and 2600 Printers.
Actually, the problem is with the printer design not the cartridges and it needs professional hands for servicing and cleaning. The mirrors which reflect laser beam get covered with dust and toner. Hence, the image is not produced properly/ sharp. (It is because of the reason that the image forming laser beam does not fully reflected by the mirrors as they are covered with dust/ toner) Note that first magenta goes off, followed by yellow, then cyan and lastly black. This is because of the mirrors placement inside the printer.

Rest assure that the printer requires ONLY CLEANING OF THE MIRRORS, which are inside the printer.

Clean them yourself with dry n soft cloth (if you are familiar with such tasks, if not you may seek professional assistance) or get it cleaned by any printer repair/ service professional. The printer has to be disassembled partially by removing the outer covers and the Laser Scanner Unit to clean the optics. Please note that the mirrors, lenses and scanner assembly inside such printers is extremely complex and can get damaged very easily especially the mirrors. So, it is recommended that if you are not comfortable and experienced enough with working inside/ disassembling such devices, get the printer serviced by authorized professional results.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Hp lazer jet 2600N won't print red color what will fix it. Has a new cartridge


You may need to replace FORMATTER BOARD & DC CONTROLER BOARD ASSY which are located behind the printer. Both BOARDs are side by side together. Just open the back cover, you will see it.

I have problem with the left side of the page - Color faded


This is a common fault on this model. The solution is to strip out the laser scanner unit. The laser scanner can be reached by removinh the back metal cover of the printer and the controll boards behind it. You need to clean the mirrors inside the laser scanner, for this you can use surgical spirits and cotton ear buds.Hope this helps. Any other queries, you can mail me renierfeldtmann7@gmail.com

Magenta is weak/fading out


Well there is something that is getting on the lenses of the laser which is causing it to block the left side of the image. NEVER use that canned air stuff on LaserPrinters because this is what happenes to them if you do. The exess toner goes right onto the lenses and you have to take them apart to be cleaned.

Red and Yellow colors are playing up


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
