Question about HP LaserJet 2605dn Printer

1 Answer

Hi there can you help with my HP2605? Since i replace a blue cartridge (a compatibal one. We have been using compatible cartridges for over year and so far so good.)3 weeks ago the printing is not week. All colour printing comes out with shadows e.g. Blue text with grey shadows next to each letters and red text with yellow shadows. Other colour images have the same problem. I ordered a geniune blue cartridge and tried on it this morning. But the problem is still there. I did activate colour calibrating again and again. Please help. Many thanks.

Click on the alignment button and have the machine automatically start the realignment process
it is not color realignment but printer head alignment that is the problem

SOURCE: When color printing, looks blurred, but not.

You need to align the cartriges. If you have the HP software installed on your machine, you can just open that and click on the align button. If not here is the link to download the software:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?&lang=en&cc=us&pnameOID=446154&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=446153&lang=en&cc=us

Just select your operating system and then download the North America/Western Europe full software solution under software. This should allow you to align your cartiges. Just follow the instructions when aligning. Hope this helps you out!

SOURCE: Printing blue on top of pink

There is a common colour problem with this model printer it is caused by the scanner assembly (there's a fan that blows megenta into the scanner unit).
Solution is to clean the scanner mirrors.

SOURCE: Hp Deskjet 845C - Yellow Colour not Printing

I found this post to work for me when yellow was not printing on my HP PSC750 after using 2 cartridges: "Well if you want to damage your printer use alcohol. But if you want to make it work then pull the cartridge from the printer and run hot water on a couple of paper towels leaving alot of hot water in the towels. Put some thing under them to keep them from staining your counter top and then set the cartridge down onto the hotwater towel and let the hot water melt away the dry ink and in minutes you may be printing again if this is what it is. Be sure and use a dry paper towel to wipe off the ecess wet before you reinstall the cartridge."

SOURCE: grey marks and shadow images on copies

Drum, cleaning blade, and PCR need replacing, and most likely the developer as well. This is not something that can be done by an end-user. Fuser could be causing a portion of this problem as well. The machine basically needs it's 60K maintenance performed.

On HP Photosmart 7960, which cartridge to replace when the blue and green look pale


The printer takes a tri-color cartridge and a black cartridge. So anytime there is an issue with color, replace the tri-color cartridge. As far as using compatible inks, you will not be able to use HP's software for ink levels with compatible inks. This feature will work only with HP ink cartridges.

Have all in one 2500. "Cartridges not compatible" error. I have 34 (18C0034) and 35 (18C00035). Are those the wrong cartridges? Thanks Terry


Hi. The 34(18C0034) and the 35(18C00035) are compatible with your printer. The printer may not be recognizing the cartridges properly. Make sure the protective blue sticker on the nozzles are already removed. If you have done so but problem still persitent, try cleaning the nozzles of the cartridges. To clean, place a damp and a dry paper towel on the table. Grab one cartridge and place it on damp towel first with the nozzle facing down like how you are placing it in the printer. Draw about 2-3 lines. Then do the same thing on the dry towel. Do the same sequence with the other cartridge. Place one cartridge only in the printer then close it without the other cartridge. Check for any error. If there is, replace that cartridge. If no error, proceed inserting the other cartridge. If there is an error, replace that cartridge. Hope this helps.

My printer will not recognise non epson cartridges



ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!! How you were able to use generic is amazing. I was not able to do that!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

TRYING PURCHASING GENUINE, and see what happens? This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Cannon MP600 error message U052


Hello all, I have had an MP600 for a few years now, and after paying about £50-£60 a set of inks i decided to use compatible ones and i also spent £20.00 on a ink resetter from Sudhaus http://www.patronenhandel.de/shop/en/Redsetter/MP-Serie/MP-600/mit-Refill-Set
After about a year of owning the MP600 i got the dreaded U052 error, so i went back to genuine inks, however this did not clear the error. i then decided to telephone Canon and they advised me to clean the print head thoroughly. If you look at the print head there is a white plate with 2 screws either side, i rmoved that CAREFULLY and cleaned behind it, i reinstalled everything back to normal and 2 years later i am still running perfect with no issues what so ever...I'm not sure what resolved the issue but i now refill my genuine cartridges myself and reset the chip with the Sudhaus resetter. To refill your cartridge use the tube inside the genuine ink cartridge DO NOT refill from the top, you will see the 2 arrows on the GENUINE ink cartridge pierce between there and use a long syringe to refill.
Hope this helps people in the future.

Hi, My canon pixma mp780 has been printing in colour but faces are green--all of the cartridges are in place--the yellow, pink, blue and black. I cannot figure out what the problem is. Hope you can give me...


Hi Susan,
I have 3 MP780 printers and I've never had that problem. I'll try guessing, green color is a combination of Yellow and Cyan (what you call Blue). Do you have all 3 of the Cyan(Blue), Magenta (Pink) and Yellow cartridges in the correct position? This is the simplest possibility that I can think of. If they are and the cartridges where never in the wront position, then let me know if you want to continue further. Because it means someone has to clean the printhead and that takes a little bit of mechanical aptitute and dexterity. Not a lot really actually some basic common sense. The only other possiblity is that you may be using compatible cartridges. Sometimes their inks are really different colors. Hope this helps.

Incompatible cartridges


I don't have an MP145 but from what I know that printer uses the 830/831 and 40/41 canon cartridges. I'm not familiar w/ the 37/38 as we don't have it here but from the pictures that I've seen they look identical. Unfortunately, Canon may have done some region coding like HP as I've only seen the 37/38 in the European websites. You can try it but I would suggest you changed it to the 40/41. Also if you have the original box of the printer, it should indicate there what cartridges are compatibe. If the 37/38 is not written on it then its not compatible. Hope this helps.

Wrong colours!


Hi Dannydoda,

I understand that, you are using different compatible ink cartridges and having problem with colors.

HP printers has a small built in firmware, which can detect the original ink cartridges and the ink level.

Using other compatible ink cartridges may damage the print heads of the printer.

I suggest you to replace the ink cartridges with original or Genuine HP cartridges.

You can also try some of the steps to fix the issue as given in the web link.

please click on the web link given below and perform the steps carefully.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00042885&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=79499

This should fix the issue.
Have a great day!
