HP 2605dn Black prints 1/8" offset to left. Colors do register

Color misalignment on my 2605dn.
Flashed firmware (twice), latest drivers etc.
Replaced remanufactured cartriges with HP OEM units
after alignment problems and one leaking magenta cart.
Black cartridge is printing 1/8" LEFT of other colors.
Still misaligned with different black OEM cart cartriges.
Cleaned belt, blew out any loose toner (almost none)
Any assistance is MUCH appreciated.

Missalignment problems ae not uncommon with this series of printer.
The cause is one of the sensors (which are used for calibration and alignment) on the transfer belt, is faulty.

These sensors are NOT availale, and replacement of the transfer belt is the solution.

Transfer belt replacement on these printers requires quite a bit of dismantling, its not considered to be a user replacable consumable.

SOURCE: hp 2605dn Black cartridge is printing 1/8" LEFT of other colors.

That problem is frequently on HP 2600 series.
You must try to change all remanufactured toner cartridges with HP OEM with no exception, the best alignment it is when you change the black cartridge and the printer make a cleaning page process. Cartridge HP OEM should be almoust empty. It Is not necesarry to be a new one. After the alignment process, you can put the remanufacturated cartridges back on.
This was work for me. 100%

My mp610 Canon printer will no longer print email documents (black)- leaves page blank, except for email address (in blue print)., But printer will still print satisfactory color pictures (Photos). B


Get the latest driver from Canon's web site. Then uninstall the printer. Remove the driver from your computer. Use regedit to remove any traces of your printer from your registry. Install the new driver. That should do it.

Faded prints are possible due to following reasons.

1. Fogged red mirrors inside the Laser box
2. Alignment of the Laser Box
3. Calibration Problem
4. Cleaning Problem

I will guide you with simple steps first, if this dosen't work working with laser box is little tough & time consuming, hence will describe later.

To Calibrate the colors, Press the 'Green Button' in the front panel, use the arrow keys to navigate through menu.

Select 'System Setting' by pressing the green button again, navigate using the arrow keys and select the 'Calibrate Color', select green button to select and confirm to 'Calibrate Now'. This will take few minutes.

In addition to that, to clean the paper path, select the green button and use the arrow keys and navigate thru' menu and select 'Service'. select using the green button and navigate through menu and select cleaning option. This will take few minutes.

Try printing some documents and check whether you have fixed. If you have not got the original print quality, Let know to guide you more technically.

The problem is my HP 2605dn will not print in magenta even though there is clearly toner left in the cartridge as indicated by the LCD indicator. Also, when I remove the toner cartridge it is obvious that...


Believe it or not, you may need a FIRMWARE update. I'd be even more certain of this if I knew that you'd accidentally put the colors in the wrong slots once - even if you put them back correctly.

I don't know the operating system you're using (XP, Vista, etc.), but you can follow the steps and find the FIRMWARE (not the 'driver') by going here:

HP 2605dn laser - color fading


HP has a list of troubleshooting steps you can go through for the HP 2605dn when you experience print quality issues.

Two specific things I would try from that list are:
  1. Clean the electrostatic transfer belt.
  2. Clean the printer paper path.
Good Luck!

Colors are uneven, too much green on the right side and too much red on the left


The internal optics are dirty. It's a known problem that HP's been ignoring.  More info is here:  http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?admit=109447627+1202453734788+28353475&threadId=1073731
