One of the ink toners (magenta) leaked in my printer. I tried cleaning it but now it prints with magenta streaks. Do you have any suggestions to resolve this issue?

There may be a release lever for the print head assembly which would allow you to remove the print head and clean the excess ink from it. If it appears to get better the more pages you print it may be just a matter of time and lots of pages before it cleans itself.
Try running the print head cleaning utility multiple times to help reduce the amount of ink on the print head. This could take quite a few times before it gets better.

My HP Color LaserJet 8550 is printing very distinct streaks. It seems to be in areas that have a lot of magenta. Any idea how to get rid of the streaks??


If the streaks are limited to a single colour, the problem is likely to be THAT colour TONER CARTRIDGE.

A problem with the DRUM UNIT (only a single drum in this printer) or the TRASNSFER DRUM , or BELT (this printer has both a transfer drum and a belt), would affect ALL colours.

My HP 4700d is printing magenta streaks.


Run a PQ test. On the control panel, go to diagnostics and then find the PQ test. This will print a quality test that will reveal if you have a bad cartridge, which is the most likely cause of magenta streaks.

HP CP2025 Heavy smears of magenta appear down the right-hand side of paper. Have tried restart and changing paper weight.


It is due to spilled magenta toner leaking from side to the toner cartridge. Take the cartridge out of the printer and clean it. Clean visible inside of the printer. Shake the cartridge lightly in horizontal position to evenly distribute the toner inside the cartridge and put it back. The issue sould be fixed after some prints.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

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.

My hp laserjet 3030 printer has begun printing with grey horizontal streaks over the entire page. Can anyone help with the problem?


Sounds like a bad fuser. To check it out - print a few pages, as the printer prints open the cover(the one that you open to get at the toner).Remove the toner. Look at the page that is facing up. if it has streaks on it - change the toner. If it looks clean, change the fuser.

I have a HP 4100 printer. Installed new ink.Purple streaks


That's a neat trick. The 4100 is a printer that uses one BLACK toner cartridge. It doesn't print in color. And it doesn't use ink.
