Is your printer set to Economode in the printer settings? It may be and so its printing at low quality.

CANON PIXMA COLORS ARE LIGHT


I would manually clean out the printhead, I believe for your model it is a separate unit form the ink cartridge. Please follow these steps bellow.

First you will need to remove the cartridges, then remove the printhead assembly then mix some water and isopropyl alcohol in a 50/50 mixture. You can either use a cotton swab to rub the water and alcohol on the printhead or you can soak the inkjet printhead for around 2 to 5 minutes. This should loosen the dried ink. It may take a few attempts and requires patience. Dry it on a folded paper towel and reinstall it. Print a test page to check quality. If the documents are still printing with poor quality, repeat and soak the printheads for longer.

Let me know if that helped. I had the same issue and this resolved it for me.

Thanks

No color even though new cartridge


The ink come directly from the cartridge in this printer. I would recommend running some cleaning cycles (if available) and sitting the cartridge on a damp piece of tissue for 15-30 seconds to try and get the ink flowing.

Failing this it is likely to be a duff cartridge, so please contact your retailer. These cartridges are a bit long in the tooth now.

Color is offset and blurred. There is no problem printing in black. Printing test page shows the same symptoms.


Hello
The color of HP LJ 2600n fades due to following reasons
1. the color cartridge near to empty 2. due to dust on reflection mirrors inside the printer
if the color cartridges are OK, then you need help of HP technician support, because cleaning of mirrors is very technical in nature for 2600n.
Dusty Environments can lead to Laser Scanner Contamination. The dust layer on the mirrors prevents proper transmission of the laser output in the imaging system leading to faded colors on the printed page. The initial stages of this failure typically occur in the magenta or yellow color planes as faded or light color. Often the left side is more faded than the middle.
You may need to contact the nearest Authorized Service Tech and get teh Laser Scanner replaced with the new released service part that has a mirror in a location where the dust ideally cannot reach easily.
Also, please ensure that the printer is relocated from the current location to a more dust free zone.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

Magenta cartridge not working despite being full


This happens due to Laser sCANNER Contamination.

Light Output that typically starts fading along the outside edges of the media. The first noticable color would be Magenta.

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!

Color is all wrong regardless of cartridge or cleaning.


Change the cartridges. Very very common problem with 4200's cartridges. From my own experience this is the only solution.
