Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

I have a HP Colourjet 2600n which has worked well for 12 months plus. However it has just started printing with thick black smudges along the left of every page. It looks like there is yellow powder sticking along one side of the roller. How can I clean the roller without damaging it?

If you have BLACK Marks on the paper the YELLOW roller does not need to be cleaned usually.

To clean the yellow toner off the roller use a DRY lint free cloth. For this issue my suggestion for a resolution to the Yellow toner issue is replace the toner. They are not supposed to leak in the first place.

As for the BLACK tone on the left of the page you most likely have a Fuser issue causing that.

I have a HP Color laser jet 2600n printer. I have tried different Glossy paper, marked for laser jet, but still get bad smudges on my prints. these smudges are still visible on the next ordinary prints...


You need to ensure that you are telling the printer that and your print driver that you are using glossy paper as this will change the speed that the printer prints at and ensure better bonding.

Just replaced black cartridge in my 2600n color laser. I have smudged about a half inch wide 2/3rds over the right of each page. It only smudges in black. I have recalibrated several times. Printed at...


If this just started after you replaced the toner cartridge, one would have to say that it is a bad toner cartridge.
Print something that smudges. Pull down the front cover and look at the cartridges. Pay attention to the top one(black).
Look at the drum on that cartridge. You should see the toner sitting there. Compare it to the other cartridges which should be clean.

Gray smudge on edge of paper


If you get only black smudge even when you're printing in color your problem is most likely the black cartridge. If it smudge in colors look at your transfer belt, open the front door, the big belt that hangs on the door.

4 - black ink smudges (1/32" wide x 1/16" high) in right margin


Very nice trouble shooting. The image defect you describe point to the OPC or drum unit this is essentially the toner cart. In your case black. Measureing the distance between repetitive defects is a sure way of diagnosing problems such as yours. Again nice work.

Google repetitive defect ruler for your model to help in the future.

Hope this helps

replace the toner. many remanufactured cartridges will do this due to leaks during/after refill.

Black smudges on printed page


Are you sure this is a Designjet 450 (large format printer) and not a Deskjet 450 (portable printer)? The following assumes you have wispy black streaking on the printed side of the paper. If the streaking is on the back side then post more details of the printer model and the issue.

In either case the most likely cause is a buildup of fibers on the underside of the printheads or carriage, causing wisps of black ink to be dragged on the paper when the carriage reverses direction. You can clean the printer as shown at the following (though the details will be somewhat different for the Designjet or Deskjet....).

HP 2600n prints black streaks on a page


Could be a few things but black cartridge is most common cause, they are not "cleanable" one just replaces them, if you carts are non gen HP then that will surely be your problem, slight chance could be transfer belt assy or fuser. they are also just a case of replacing, go for cart, replace it and see.
