Lines down the paper HP 4600DN

I get magenta lines down the paper when printing color - when it is black and white it doesn't show up. The cart is about 1 year old but is full and I haven't done that much printing. The lines show up on the front and back side of the paper.

The actual problem is that the cleaner stage of laser printing may not be functioning correctly on the drum.

One thing you can do is purchase specific sheets from staples I believe. They are meant to be used in the cleaning cycle of the laser printer. Do this first. If this doesn't work, then the drum needs to be replaced.

This means that the problem is with the toner drum. Just try to clean the drum of the toner with cotton. It is green colored rod in the toner. then try to take the print. If still you get the line while printing please either replace the toner or get the drum replaced from a local vendor

Why do I have white / faded print when printing black? It also has problems printing straight lines - sometimes jagged sometimes just faded.


I do not know for sure but it sounds like the paper is not griped properly, this would cause the jagged lines. I would try another ink cart when the loose paper problem is resolved. I hope this helps.

When printing from the HP color laserjet 4600DN, its leaving tracking lines in the middle of the page. Any suggestions on how to fix this?


Hello, track lines could be caused by a number of components within the printer.

Is it any specific color? Yes - Change the toner of the color causing the lines.
open the front main door, Inspect the ETB for damage. Inspect the fuser for damage. If any component shows damage it will need to be replaced.

Hi i have a hp officejet 4355 all in one printer at my place. i m having problem fixing with the cartridge as it is showing error. pls guide


Problems with Hewlett Packard Officejet 4355 printing can often be due to issues with the cartridges. The printer has two cartridges, one black and white, and one color. Both can be physically inspected for problems. The printer also has a self-test report to determine if there is a non-obvious problem with the cartridge. The report can provide valuable information, including status.

  • 1

    Take the black ink cartridge out of the slot on the right. Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles or the copper contacts.

  • 2

    Look at the cartridge and make sure that the plastic shipping tape isn't still attached. There shouldn't be any tape covering the ink nozzles.

  • 3

    Replace the black cartridge and then perform Steps 1 and 2 on the color cartridge. The color cartridge is the one on the left side.

  • 4

    Print a self-test report. Load paper in the tray and press "Setup." Press "2" and then "4." The HP Officejet 4355 will print a report. Make sure the lines of color extend across the page. Missing, faded or streaky lines can indicate a cartridge failure. If the color bars don't show as black, cyan, magenta and yellow, you should clean the cartridges.

  • 5

    Press "Setup" and then press "6" and then "1." The print cycle will commence. Allow it to complete and then print another test report. If the test still shows errors, replace the cartridges.

    Cannot print in color on HP OfficeJet 9110 All-in-One


    Nothing to do with the driver, I'd say the cartridges are your problem, skipping lines and missing colour are indications of needing new ink carts, are carts new HP ones?
