Re: HP 2600N dark gray line down the left side

Maybe your transfer belt is damaged. If u have an spare belt replace it for a test. Answer me if it dont work. Maybe i can get an support manual for u. I work in a HP partner company.

Good luck

About 15mm dark hadow vertical line on the page.

Sounds like its time for a new drum/print cartridge. When it get worn you start to get poor quality prints and sometimes lines. COule also be scratched and transfering the line on the prints but in either case needs to be replaced.

HP 2600n gray background darkness throughout paper

Ehh, after futher reading it seems, as long as the EBT is not physically damadged, it is fine. So it all points back to the fuser. Ebay for $75 genuine HP.

But for others, just to rule out anything simple, disconnect from computer, and reset to factory defaults. Print Demo page. If still looks ugly, nothing to loose, run the service menu cleaning option, basicly heats the fuser very hot and passes a paper very slowly to catch any excess toner. I have never seen this cleaning option help but you never know. And if your print still looks like ****, you can save your beloved slow printing laser jet, replace the fuser.

Awsome instructions...

99% of printed page has light grey water mark-as if water-washed

Are you saying it is this problem?

Lines down both the left side of the printouts.

good day,

this usually occurs when you print large volume of copies of documents that goes beyond the printable area of the paper, some powders stick in the roller of your printer hence making the gray streak.

you can check if the rollers have accumulated some powder, if so, have the rollers cleaned.

i hope this will help.
