Hello, our HP 2600n prints some blue vertical lines over the printed document. The lines goes from the beginning of the paper to the end and the pattern is not always the same but the lines are almost in the same position horizontally over the document. If one opens the door of the printer, the black acetate has this lines too.

Re: HP 2600n prints some blue vertical lines
1 of 2 things: First, check yuor Cyan cartridge and make sure that it is not leaking. It may have a bad seal. If you replace it with a known good toner, the imaging unit (the black acetate thing) will need to be replaced. This is also a consumable unit.

after you have printed a few pages switch the machine off just as the paper leaves the fuser. then open the front cover and take a close look at the image transfer belt ( black plastic conveyor type belt)
use a torch shone accross the belt to better light the error- if you can see these Green/yellow/cyan lines on the belt then theres a good chance its coming from the toner units- ( also try print quality troubleshooting pages in the menus under diagnostics.look at the individual colour pages and look for any lines or Uneveness about the shaded colour) replace whichever toner is not printing correctly
What you need to do is clean the print head because it is clogged with dried ink. A printer should be used at least once a week to prevent the ink from drying in the print head. Hope this is of some help. Bud
you can change it on the fly as you print or go to the start/settings/printers/ (then open your printer ) on the printer menu at the top .... select printer /printer preferences and make the changes you want
