That is something called laser scanner contamination, behind the magenta catridge there is a little piece of glass wich is the laser scanner. clean the glass run at least 3 cleaning modes and then sent a test page and see if it gets fixed.
if not take the printer to a service center to make a deeper cleaning or in the worst case scenario to replace the lase scanner

Make sure that you use only HP. If you tried a refill it could be defective.

The color red is dull when printing


I assume you've checked magenta toner cartridge level, and tried cleaning.
If so, the next thing to do is try cleaning the scanner mirror. On these models the mirror nearest the magenta toner builds up dust the most quickly, hence why it is the first colour to fade on prints. Only use dry swabs (no solvents) and compressed clean air on the mirrors.

The Magenta colour on my 2605dn is no longer coming out properly (very faint). The cartridge was replaced by made no difference. All other cartridge colours work fine. Tried cleaning and calibrating but...


A faded magenta on this model is probably a dirty scanner mirror.
The printer design puts a fan in an area that blows magenta toner directly at the laser scanner.
The more toner on the mirror, the more faded the print.
You will need to remove the scanner and clean it.

The magenta toner cartridge is probably defective. If you take the cartridge out and open the flap and see magenta toner all of the drum then it needs to be replaced.

I replaced all 3 color cartridge with origanal hp products, even after calibrations (3 times-full mode) only cyan and black are printing nicely. red and magenta colors are not printing.this is not driver...


This is a common problem with this model of printer. The scanner optic degenration is due to dust buildup on mirrors and lenses. Since the most vulnerable mirror reflects its laser beam to the magenta toner cartridge, red tones are the first to show fading. Colours shift: purples turn blue and oranges turn yellow. The printer optics will need to be cleaned by a technician to resolve this issue as it means dismantling your printer deep into the optics to fix the problem.

This printer has stopped printing reds and oranges correctly ? they are faded. Changed the toners & no difference


Print a "Config Report" from the printers menu...If u notice that the fourth square on the left side (fourth being the bottom square) for Magenta (reds and orange) is missing or very faded, this could indicate that the optical mirrors inside the printer have to be cleaned...Design flaw. ESP..if changing toners doesn't work and your your faded issue is with Magenta (Pink, red, or orange) colours are the only faded ones...With this design flaw in the optical mirrors, magenta mirror is the first to be affected!
Hope this helps!!!! I work in the industry :)

Colors are uneven, too much green on the right side and too much red on the left


The internal optics are dirty. It's a known problem that HP's been ignoring.  More info is here:  http://forums12.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/bizsupport/questionanswer.do?admit=109447627+1202453734788+28353475&threadId=1073731

Detailed instructions are on this page - look for Don Thompson's posting at Sep 15, 2007 23:38:51 GMT and click the papercliip to see the procedure. It's not for the faint of heart.
