Sounds like you have a fuser issue. Also, there is a wire inside the unit that creates a magnetic charge on the pager that attracts the toner. If the paper is too thick, this wire is failing, or the fuser unit itself is going bad then the toner cannot be "attracted" to the paper because the magnetic charge is either too weak or altogether absent.

You could probably get the unit serviced, but the price of network printers with duplexing are quite low and may be less expensive than getting this one repaired.

HOW TO SET BRIGHTNESS OF THE SCREEN?


Hi,

Dear User...

You can adjust the brightness and contrast of your monitor to improve the readability of text and to make digital pictures appear more like they'll look when printed.

To improve the results when adjusting the brightness and contrast settings for your display, use Display Color Calibration. (Display Color Calibration helps you adjust these color settings and others.) For more information about calibrating your display color in Windows, see Calibrate your display.

The way you adjust brightness and contrast varies and depends on your specific display.

Brightness and contrast buttons on the front of the monitor. Some monitors have brightness and contrast controls on the front and use the standard symbols shown in the following image.


On-screen menu. You can change the brightness and contrast settings for some displays by using an on-screen menu, and then setting the brightness and contrast in the resulting menu. Many times, you can view the on-screen menu by pressing a button-possibly labeled Menu-on the front of the monitor.



Thanks....

When printing from the HP color laserjet 4600DN, its leaving tracking lines in the middle of the page. Any suggestions on how to fix this?


Hello, track lines could be caused by a number of components within the printer.

Is it any specific color? Yes - Change the toner of the color causing the lines.
open the front main door, Inspect the ETB for damage. Inspect the fuser for damage. If any component shows damage it will need to be replaced.

HP 1600 color laser printer--colors are out of sync


Check the following information please.

General print quality issues

Solving issues with color documents This section describes issues that can occur when you print in color. Color document issues Problem Cause Solution Only black is printing when the document should be printing in color.

c00659983.gif Color mode is not selected in your program or printer driver. Select color mode instead of grayscale mode. The correct printer driver might not be selected in the program. Select the correct printer driver. The device might not be correctly configured. Print a Configuration page.

One or more colors are not printing, or are inaccurate.

c00659984.gif Sealing tape might be on the print cartridges. Verify that the sealing tape has been completely removed from the print cartridges. The media might not meet HP specifications. Use a different paper, such as high-quality paper that is intended for color laser printers. The device might be operating in excessively humid conditions. Verify that the device environment is within humidity specifications. One or more print cartridges might be low. If you are using non-HP print cartridges, no messages appear on the device control panel or in the HP Toolbox. Replace any low print cartridges. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. A color is printing inconsistently after you load a new print cartridge.

c00659985.gif Another print cartridge might be low. If you are using a non-HP print cartridge, it might be low or empty but you will receive no indication. Remove the print cartridge for the color that is printing inconsistently and reinstall it. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. The colors on the printed page do not match the colors as they appear on the screen.

c00659986.gif The colors on your computer monitor might differ from the device output. Select Screen Match in the Color tab of the printer driver. If extremely light colors or extremely dark colors on screen are not printing, your software program might interpret extremely light colors as white or extremely dark colors as black. If possible, avoid using extremely light or extremely dark colors. The media might not meet HP specifications.

c00659987.gif The media might be too rough. Use a smooth paper or print media, such as a high-quality paper that is made for color laser printers. Generally, smoother media produces better results. Repetitive image defect ruler Use a repetitive image defect ruler to measure occurrences of repetitive image defects to help solve image quality problems. Place the ruler next to the first occurrence of the defect on the page. Find the distance between identical defects and see the Repetitive image defects table to identify the component that is causing the defect.

Something stuck in print cartridge


if the label came off on the drum then no, the drum is the blue or green roller that is protected by the plastic flap. A quick easy way to tell is that there should be 3 or 4 marks on the page, evenly spaced, this will indicate something stuck on the drum. The only repair is to replace it, because of the highly sensitive material that it is made of.

HP color laser 4600dn FAN noise


Yes this is normal. Everytime someone prints, the printer exits power saving mode and the fan will stay on. If you leave it on and don't print to it overnight, the fan would shut off in the mornig. But you probably turn the printer off everynight and are printing all day, so you don't really have to expectthe fan to power down unless its not being used for an long period of time idleing.

Samsung CPL-300 Color Laser Printer Problem W/ Labels


I work in the comercial printing game, what your describing sounds like the surface finish used on these labels is only suited to black toner. Black requires the least amount of heat to set, where as colours require more radient heat the lighter the colour gets from black. Try printing a black/monotone lable and see if you still get this blistering problem.

Lexmark 3 in 1 x1270 scanner does lousy with certain colors ----blurry


Scanners (or copiers) can't improve on the image they are seeing.
If you view the labels under a bright light, you will see what the scanner is seeing too.

The only thing you can do is as you already have, use a photo editor to correct those cosmetic flaws before printing.
