Question about Brother HL 2700CN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Brother HL2700CN laser printer not printing true colors.

For the last three weeks when printing my church bulletin, the colors along one edge are not correct. Black comes out as black, but all other colors are coming out yellow and orange instead of the colors they should be. The bulletins are printed on legal-size paper and landscape, so the problem is along the right edge of the paper. The rest of the bulletin prints correctly.
I ran diagnostics, but it showed that everything was okay. The printer was donated to the church, so we have very little documentation and don't know how old it is. Help!

    The left side of all pages prints with a lighter shade of color than the rest of the page.  The OPC belt looks like it has a little crinkle in it but we don't have the funds to purchase another.  Any other repair solutions?

Bends envelopes in printing

Most laser printers have an "S" paper path. They cannot help bending paper. I would suggest you print lables instead of envelopes if you send several letters. If you only send 1, hand address the envelope. Not elegant ut it works.

When I want to print a clipart picture in grayscale, my printer still does a pinkish color. This is a problem with my church bulletin.

The software print setting is probably designated as color. Follow these steps to check this setting:
  1. In the software application you are trying to print from, click File , and then click Print . The Print dialog box opens.
  2. Make sure your printer is selected, then click Preferences . The printer Preferences dialog box opens.
  3. Select the Color tab, then make sure that the Print in grayscale option is selected.
