Missing or incorrect color
You have changed the color settings manually. Return the color setting to Automatic. • Windows: On the Color tab of the printer driver, click Automatic. • Mac OS: In the Print dialog box, select the HP ColorSmart or HP Color Quality pop-up menu and then select the Manual option.
Your print media does not meet the specifications for this printer. For example, you are using coated, glossy, or photo paper. Use a different paper, such as a high-quality paper designed for laser printers. See the user guide for information about print-media specifications.
You are operating the printer in excessively humid or dry conditions. Verify that the printer environment is within humidity specifications. A print cartridge might be low on toner. Check the printer control panel, print a Supplies Status page, or view the embedded Web server (HP color LaserJet 2500 series printers only) to see supplies status. (If you are using a non-HP cartridge, none of these sources will provide information about a low or empty print cartridge.) If a cartridge is low on toner, replace the print cartridge.
Clean the sensors and perform a calibration.
The HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox is not supported for the Macintosh operating systems. 1 Make sure that the printer is turned on and in the Ready state. 2 Open the Toolbox. 3 On the Troubleshooting tab, click Cleaning Page and click Print. A page with a pattern prints from the printer. 4 At the printer, remove any media from tray 1 (multipurpose tray). 5 Remove the page that printed and load it face-down into tray 1 6 At the computer, click Clean.
Note For even better results, repeat this procedure several times.
The printer automatically performs a calibration when the imaging drum or a print cartridge is changed, and at set intervals that are determined by the total number of pages the printer has printed. For the HP Color LaserJet 2500 series printers, you can change the interval at which the printer performs automatic calibrations by using the embedded Web server.
To calibrate the printer manually Turn the printer off, wait one minute, and then turn the printer on again.
To calibrate the printer from the Toolbox The following procedure must be performed from the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or the HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox, which are only supported for Windows 98, NT 4.0 (HP Color LaserJet 2500 series printers with parallel connections only), Me, 2000, and XP.
Note The HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox is not supported for the Macintosh operatingsystems. 1 Open the Toolbox in one of these ways: • On the desktop, double-click the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox icon. • On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to HP Color LaserJet 1500 or HP Color LaserJet 2500, and select the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or the HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox. 2 On the Troubleshooting tab, click Diagnostic Tools (on the left side of the screen). 3 Click Calibrate Now.
Hope this helps!

turn on/off, unplug, plug in, should reset configs.
take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are preventing printing
go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.
lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. HP has an awesome website for this type os trouble shooting
hope this helps and good luck

Yes, you will replace the whole cartridge. Open the front door and pull out the cartridge drawer. Grab the handle for the magenta and pull it straight up. There should be directions in the box.

SOURCE: When printing text in color
Clean the Fuser unit and Remove the Wasted Toner from the Drum, that'll definitely fix your problem. To do these, you have to disassemble the Fuser and also the Drum. If you need further help, let me know with more details so that I can give you the instructions on how to do and how to fix it with the easiest possible hints and instructions.
