Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
Do you have some comments on this ?
HP Color LaserJet 2600n (Q6455A). Magenta is weak/fading out on the left side (Magenta toner is replaced). The printer had the same problem in October last year, then mirrors in laser / scanner module was cleaned. Now it seems that the same thing has happened. Could it be that the printer is very susceptible in dusty environments, or may be paper dust is sprinkled down into the laser module?
This has become a common issue on these machines - due to design two laser-to-drum mirrors in the laser/scanner assembly face upwards. Because the unit is not sealed, the upward facing mirrors are a nice place for toner dust to settle.
The repair is rather easy for a trained professional - in theory anyone with the right set of instructions could perform the procedure, but I'd highly recommend a novice not try.
Instead call a trusted computer repair shop and explain the situation and that you need to have the mirrors in your laser/scanner assembly cleaned to resolve issues with faded color output. A reputable service agency with experience in HP printer repair should have no problem doing this procedure in less than an hour – so they shouldn’t charge you for more than an hour or two of bench labor. If the repair facility you contact doesn’t understand your request or tries to blame your toner cartridge; hang up and call another company.

Well there is something that is getting on the lenses of the laser which is causing it to block the left side of the image. NEVER use that canned air stuff on LaserPrinters because this is what happenes to them if you do. The exess toner goes right onto the lenses and you have to take them apart to be cleaned.
