Hp CLJ 2600n colors 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.

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!

Color is offset and blurred. There is no problem printing in black. Printing test page shows the same symptoms.


Hello
The color of HP LJ 2600n fades due to following reasons
1. the color cartridge near to empty 2. due to dust on reflection mirrors inside the printer
if the color cartridges are OK, then you need help of HP technician support, because cleaning of mirrors is very technical in nature for 2600n.
Dusty Environments can lead to Laser Scanner Contamination. The dust layer on the mirrors prevents proper transmission of the laser output in the imaging system leading to faded colors on the printed page. The initial stages of this failure typically occur in the magenta or yellow color planes as faded or light color. Often the left side is more faded than the middle.
You may need to contact the nearest Authorized Service Tech and get teh Laser Scanner replaced with the new released service part that has a mirror in a location where the dust ideally cannot reach easily.
Also, please ensure that the printer is relocated from the current location to a more dust free zone.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

I changed the laser cartridges and the red seems to come out orange. The colors aren't just right. I have preformed 3 color calibrations. Is there any thing else? I have Vista. HP 2605dn laser printer


Your laser/scanner assy needs cleaning. The main fan, located at the bottom is getting dust from below the printer and blows it to the lower (magenta) mirrors of the laser/scanner assy.
To repair, take the printer apart. Remove side and back covers. Then remove the metal frame with the boards. The laser/scanner is a black box behind the frame. Take it out and open it. Clean the mirrors.
To make the repair permanent, cover the fan's vents with sticky tape. I usually remove the plastic gratings to seal better. It will cause no problems to the printer.

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 an HP laserJet 2600N Printer Iinstalled


The laser unit is positioned in such a position that the air intake fan draws any environmental dust into the unit and the lens and mirrors of the magenta laser are first to be deposited with this dust resulting in a week laser beam onto the magenta drum , resulting in very light magenta images. Solution if you are technical minded take the unit out the rear ond clean all the laser mirrors and lenses be very carefull. I regularly have a machine in the workshop with this problem , the cleaning of the laser unit can also be a solution to the colour mis alighnment problem.

The red color is very faded and at best looks to be faded orange. The print cartridge has been replaced with a new one. I only use HP supplies.


as i said early: Your problem have only one solution - open laser/scaner Assembly carefully and clean all mirrors inside whit dry cloth. Dirty mirrors is the most frequently problem for 1600/2600 series. Comments: Oct 06, 2009 - NO, never use cotton ear buds, sometimes they landed some fibers to the mirrors and you will get bad image :)

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

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
