Question about HP LaserJet 4600dn Color Printer

Problems during warm up

On powering up the printer, it goes through the initializing process but stops at the 'performing calibration' stage. Sometimes it then goes through the motins and is in the 'Ready' status but when it comes to printing from the computer, this is intermittent and sometimes not at all. Any suggestions as to fixes would be appreciated.

    Printer hangs during power up. Sometimes at the memory check, sometimes at the "Initializing..." or "Calibrating". First sign of any trouble was an EIO error message that I didnt note down.

Have you tried updating the firmware. You can get the updates at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=74303&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=74301&lang=en&cc=us

If that does not solve it you may need to try increasing your memory,

Hope this helps.

When I open the toolbox for the LaserJet 2600n printer, it tells the website is not available. I need to clean the jets etc.


You need not to clean laser printer cartridges,it may color or mono. Print cartridges them selves having cleaning blade to clean the surface of the OPC drum every time when its initializing or printing. If you found any vertical tracks on print outs replace the particular cartridge.. If you have any kind of print quality issue,perform calibrate process through printer menu..quality..calibrating.. even if you found quality issue clean the Laser scanner assm.(professionals only can do)

CM 1015mfp Colors are not aligned. when printing the characters looks like 3D.


If nothing else works, you may have to manually calibrate the dials inside the mirror box. This video link will show you how. http://youtu.be/R1DIko0a1MA
This may be necessary if the printer got bumped really hard.

Por que me sale an internal error in the initialization stage


Initialing stage is indication that the computer is undergoing restore to system default. First, at which stage where the computer stops performing restore is indication that disk is either scatched or dusty requiring cleaning. Power shut the computer completely from the shut off button because attempting to press the disk button instantly would cause impact that may damage the restore disk. Power on the computer from the power on button area. Immediately press the disk button to before the computer attempts to capture the media in disk driver. The computer disk driver should pop open immediately to make available the disk. At which point, inspect the restore disk for scratches or dust by simply cleaning with clean tissue paper. Also, observe the disk for compartibility with the computer systems. For example a computer performing on windows XP would least require update restore with disks that are Windows 7. Discontinue restore if realised that the computer is inconpartible to the disk attempting to derive restoration from. If the condition was due to dusty or scratches, simply cleaning the disk should make commenceable the restore process.
