Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

When color printing, looks blurred, but not.

When I print red, I get a yellow hue around letters. When I print blue, I get a red hue around letters. When I print red, I get a green hue around letters. When I print green, it comes out crystal clear. When I say hue, I mean it looks like the letters are duplicating themselves as a shadow behind the original letters.

Re: When color printing, looks blurred, but not.

You need to align the cartriges. If you have the HP software installed on your machine, you can just open that and click on the align button. If not here is the link to download the software:

Just select your operating system and then download the North America/Western Europe full software solution under software. This should allow you to align your cartiges. Just follow the instructions when aligning. Hope this helps you out!

I have a hp 3310 wireless. It prints in colour well but if you print in black most will be not clear although a line every so often is printed clearly. If you print the same document the same lines...

What you are trying to print is created in RGB. This means it is a photo that has been created in a color format that will ONLY print if you print it in full color. If you try to print your photo item in only black, it will only print what it sees in TV Colors, a combination of RED GREEN BLUE. This is why you will only get part of the image printed when only in black.

The only way to change it to print the whole image in all black, is to open the image you are trying to print in Photoshop or another professional grade photo program, and to change the settings of the image to CMYK, effectively, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black. Then, change the image once again - to GREYSCALE. This will effectively change all the colors to a SHADE OF GREY, in different HUES.

Save the picture as a JPEG, and then print from the desktop, from your picture viewing software that came with your computer, and you will see everything print out from the black ink, in greyscale.

I changed all Print cartridges-Black, Yellow,Cyan,Blue

On this machine you have to install inks with power on and use the ink button and choose replace ink. If you just plug them in it won't register and reset the counts. You may need to run clean cycles at least twice to get proper colors.

My printer is printing in hues of green colors

If the test page also does not print properly, maybe you don't have run out of red and yellow color in the cartridge.

the mixture of red is a combination of magenta and yellow ink or toner, if either one of these color is out of quantity or not working, chances are you will not get the right color. hope this helps.

Printer prints colours in different colours

Either you are out of red ink or the print head is getting plugged. Most printers substitute the nearest available color when a color runs out or the head is plugged. As some shades of red are made with yellow mixed, it therefore prints only in yellow if red is unavailable.

The cartridsge printe red and blue fine. No yellow

The print head for the yellow color may be clogged. Check the manual to see how to turn on your print head's cleaning system. Run it until the yellow starts to print properly. If after running the cycle 4 or 5 times you still can't get any yellow to print you will probably have to take the printer to your local repair depot to have them diagnose the problem.

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black

I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.

Yellow Hue when color copying

I understand your situation, however let me explain you that whenever you try to make a copy or print, yellow cartridge takes part and provides its color in all the aspects. Please do check that you use the HP ink cartridges and try to clean the cartridges for every 15 days as this may reduce the issues of colors.
