Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
I have an HP 2600n laser printer, how do I fix the magenta print that is fading on edges. Same problem after replacing toner carteridge.
This problem is somewhat common and is caused by dust/toner buildup in the laser optics. Unfortunately it requires quite a bit of dis-assembly to get the laser unit out of the machine in order to clean it. If you are mechanically inclined and really want to do this yourself just locate and dowload the service manual. It has instructions for laser unit removal. If you don't want to do this then you should be able to get it done for less than $100.
If you remove the 4 toner cartridges first then look at the area behind where the cartridges were. You should see kind of a black plastic box looking area with 4 "slots" about 1/4" high running from one side to the other. These "slots" are where the laser comes thru to write the print onto the drum in the 4 cartridges. You can try cleaning the front side with a cue tip. This might help but usually the problem is the toner/dust is on the inside of this unit and the only way to clean it is to remove the laser box and dis-assemble/clean it.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
