This is a known problem on this modle. The fan for the unit is located next to the laser scanner for the magenta. Dust gets on the mirrors inside. This is a pain even for a trained tech. Not really very hard but time consuming. The first time I did it it took about an hour. There are steps on the internet on how to do it if you feel crasy. Google it or take it to a repair center.

Magneta Color (Toner) and when I print, the Magneta color does not print. Even on supplies status page, the yellow color section at the bottom is blank where the yellow color should be printed. How c

The Magenta or RED toner cartridge should be removed and double check that you have indeed removed the pull tab located on the side of the cartridge which will remove the sealing tape off the new toner cartridge.
The YELLOW toner cartridge on the other hand if it is not new then it is perhaps empty and needs to be replaced. Another option is to remove the YELLOW toner cartridge from the machine, Tap it and shake it side to side to loosen the toner that is in it, and replace it back into the machine, this will usually make it start to work again!
Good Luck!

How to replace drum?

Replacing the drum on these machines is pretty simple. Leaving the power on, open the hatch at the front and remove the toner/drum assembly inside. You may need to lift it slightly then pull toward youself firmly. The toner cartridge sits inside the drum unit. Depress the green tab on the left corner and lift the toner cartridge out. Transfer the toner cartridge to the new or rebuilt drum (DR2125), press it firmly in to place. Return the drum/toner assembly to the printer, pushing it in as far as it will go. Press and hold the red stud left hand side in line with the lights until ALL the lights are on. Then release the stud and close the front hatch. and you have replaced the drum and reset the drum page count. The machine should then have only the blue ready light on

Red light is flashing next to the triangle on my HP2600n laserjet. Do I have to replace all print cartridges that printer says are low

You only need to replace the light indicated toner cartridge but if the others are reading low be prepared to change them. You can do a supplies page printout from the printer menu, click on information and scroll down, this will tell you how much toner you have left in each cartridge

My CLP-350 Samsung printer only prints black ink on half the page! While the other colours all print perfectly, the black ink prints strong and clear on the right side of the page but as you approach the...

Here is my solution, hope it will solve your problem.

From your post, I believe your CLP-350N printer has enough black toner. The black cartridge is on the far right side of the printer, so the black toner is harder to go to left side of the roller than right side. Everytime we start the printer, it will move some toner of each color to the roller before it shows ready to print.

Because we always use B&W printing when we start the printer, but less Color printing. The result is there are always enough toner on the 3 color rollers, but the black toner is lean on the black roller. When this gets worse, the left side of the black roller may hardly get any toner at all -- so it only print black on the right side fo paper.

Step by step solution
(CAUTION: Never loss balance while tilting printer! You may drop and damage your printer! Hold the printer firmly all the time! Ask someone to help you if needed!)

Here, front of the printer is where you can access the cartridge, back of the printer is where you connect the power cord and USB cable, left is your left, right is your right.

1.Lift the front to keep the printer tilt to its back at about 45 degree
2.Power on printer while it's tilted back, wait untill green light is on
3.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again,wait untill green light is on
4.Repeat step 3 once again, then put the printer back to level position
5.Lift the right to keep the printer tilt to its left at about 45 degree
6.Open the front door, red light will be on, then close the door, printer will start up again, wait untill green light is on
7.Repeat step 6 once again, then put the printer back to level position
8.Print some test page to see if there is any improvement of black print quality.(Hold the printer button for 3-5 seconds, it will print the test page.)

You may try several times and print several pages each time before you finally cure the problem.

Good luck! And do it safely!

Red color faded and red color is mis-aligned.

Hi We've been seeing alot of the HP Color Laserjet range of laser printers coming through with a "prints lightly with red" or "red is faded" fault report, we've been able to resolve the problem mostly by cleaning the scanner. Misalignment is normally resolved therafter by calibrating the machine using its calibration function. (if it has one) Wouldnt suggest this gets tried unless one is familiar with stripping and reassembling these machines though. Hope this helps.

Samsung printer ML 2510 series

Maybe the toner is low... According to the manual, a blinking red light:

• A minor error is occurring and
the printer is waiting for the error
to be cleared. When the problem
is cleared, the printer resumes
• The toner cartridge is low. Order
a new toner cartridge. You can
temporarily improve print quality
by redistributing the toner. See
page 8.3.
• The toner is totally exhausted.
Remove the old toner cartridge
and install a new one. See page
• The toner cartridge reached the
end of its life.

Samsung ML-2510 Red light on & won't print.

This may be a help. I had a similar problem with an ML-2850 which fresh out of the box refused to print, not even a test page, green light followed by red and the smart panel showed that the printer thought that there was no toner in it.
After struggling with it for an hour I hit upon the following.
Turn off the printer.
Take out the toner cartridge.
In the hole where the toner came from there's a gear on the left hand side which is sort of diagonal mesh to match the underside of the toner cartridge. Rock it back and forth a bit and then stick the cartridge back in.
My guess is, if you're unlucky when you install a new cartridge you could have a situation where the gear is in exactly the wrong position, tooth to tooth with the underside of the toner so this gear doesn't mesh properly, the cartridge doesn't seat properly, which then shows the printer as having no toner in it. Waggling the gear just changes the position slightly and then voila. A bit like rocking a car back and forth in gear to free a stuck starter motor.

Xerox Phaser 6110 claims new toner cartridge is empty

Could be many things...depends on the exact nature of the problem. Where the machine states "Invalid Toner" either the machine itself or the toner cartridge may be the wrong "region". i.e. has been sold in the wrong country..the initial toners will work but as soon as you put new ones in they will give this message. If the machine is still displaying "out of toner" then either the toner cart itself is faulty (assuming they are original Xerox carts) or the Image Unit could be faulty (the bit they plug into). Failing that, it will be a faulty Main PCB. The Toners on these have a crum chip, so they cannot be just re-filled and some that may seem "compatable" will not work either.....
