Hello:
The Fuser needs replacing. In the back of the unit is the fuser housing unit, remove it and lift the protect flap and you will see the heating roller assembly, If you manually turn the gear look at the area of the roller that is leaving the smear if any indentations on the roller replace it, this will only get worse over time. Also take out toner cartridge and clean the well. This roller is used to heat the paper before the toner is applied to it.

Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.

My HP Color LaserJet 2600n is printing with small black dots on the left side of the paper. The toner and ink was recently replaced. Is there a plausible reason for this? Thank you!


Could be toner build-up on the fuser sleeve. Pull out the fuser and check the rollers for spots.
Try running cleaning pages before replacing fuser.

The printout from my HP 2600n has serious toner streaking. The repair centre said that I have to replace all cartridges. Is that the right thing to do?


streaking is usually caused by crud build up on the drying drum. it you have done two sided printing, sometimes the toner ink can get on the drum, you have to take the drum out and clean it.

I have a HP laser 2600n and it is streaking magenta horizontally.


Sounds like the red cartridge was removed or tilted and leaked toner on the drum. Just do a self clean and it will clear up. It in the maintenance menu.

Grey background over entire page.


If toner is getting onto the transfer belt, it can only get there by either being put there intentionally, or leaking.

Failure of Transfer Belt is normally degraded print quality - usually poor density, or a failure of the support behind the belt (usually puncturing the belt), and scoring a drum.

Every page covered in magenta and black won't print across the page


This is caused by toner contamination in the laser scanner unit, it is quite a complex job removing and cleaning the laser scanner. I would suggest you contact HP regarding the repair.

It sounds like it, but before you replace it you might want to troubleshoot this through the HP Toolbox (the software would have come with the printer) if you haven't got it, download it from www.hp.com (it's straight forward and easy to use)
