Missing 3 mm of print from top to bottom

I have changed the black toner cartridge because it was running out. The pages I print now have a missing line approx 3mm wide that runs from top to bottom about 25mm from the margin. The printer is HP colour laserjet 2605dn.

Dumb question. Did you pull the strip from the toner cartidge? OEM or aftermarket? I would try the old cartidge and see if it changes if you don't have the old cartridge anymore I would contemplate replacing the one you just purchased or taking it back to where you purchased it and get an exchange for a defective cartridge.

Is there a override function to keep printing when toner alerts are on?Wondering since black still shows 30%.


These printers will still print when any or all of the toners are LOW, but if any one of them is EMPTY (according to the chip on the toner cartridge) printing stops.

Standard capacity toners ere 2000 page for the colours, and 3000 page for the black, so they can soon be used up.

Much cheaper per page printed, if you use the high capacity cartridges (6000 page for the colours, and 8000 page black).

There are high quality remanufactured cartridges available now, as good as OEM, and typically you'll get a Hi Capacity Remanufactured cartridge for the same sort of price as a Std Capacity OEM cartridge.

As a short term solution at a lower cost than replacement cartridges, you could just replace the cartridge CHIP. The printer would then think the toner was full (there'll likely to still be some toner in it), so you'll be able to print. Don't run the printer like this for ever though, as the toner has some lubricant properties, and with a TRULY EMPTY cartridge, you'll eventually do some damage to the cartridge, and then possibly the transfer belt (and you don't want to be changing that until it's rated 100,000 page life is up.

HP 2600N PRINTS A BLACK LINE VERTICALLY ACROSS THE PAGE (FROM TOP TO BOTTOM) RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE EVERYTIME YOU PRINT SOMETHING . WHAT COULD THIS BE? I HAVE CLEANED EVERY DRUM, THE FILM ETC AND IT KEEPS...


You either have a defective black toner, a bad fuser or transfer belt. From my experence it is usually a bad toner cartridge. After you print a couple of pages, pull the black toner and see if there is anything on the drum. If there is try shaking the toner, sometimes toner does like dirt and clogs up. If you still have problem you will have to try another toner. I know that is not cheep, but I don't know any other way.

Horizontal black lines across page.


Horizontal lines usually indicate a toner cartridge that is not cleaning properly.

A. If the distance between defects is 38 mm (1.5 inches), 47 mm (1.85 inches), or 94 mm (3.7 inches), the print cartridge might need to be replaced.
B. Clean the printer.

1. Clean the inside of the printer and run a cleaning page to clean the fuser.

Over time, particles of toner and paper accumulate inside the printer. This can cause print-quality problems during printing. Cleaning the printer eliminates or reduces these problems.

To clean the inside of the printer
1. Turn the printer off and unplug the power cord.
2. Open the top cover.
3. Remove the print cartridge.
4. With a dry, lint-free cloth, wipe any residue from the paper path area and the print cartridge
cavity.
5. Reinstall the print cartridge and close the top cover.
6. Plug in the power cable and turn the printer on.

Cleaning the fuser:

Run the printer cleaning page to keep the fuser free of toner and paper particles that can sometimes accumulate. Accumulation of toner and particles can cause specks to appear on the front or back side of your print jobs. To ensure optimum print quality, HP recommends that you use the cleaning page every time that you
replace the print cartridge or on an automatic interval that you can set up. The cleaning procedure takes about 2.5 minutes to complete. A CLEANING message appears on the printer control panel display while the cleaning is taking place.
To run the cleaning page:

In order for the cleaning page to work correctly, print the page on copier-grade paper (not bond, heavy, or rough paper).
1. If your printer model includes a duplexer, open the rear output bin.
2. Press Menu to open the menus.
3. Use (Up button) or (Down button) to scroll to CONFIGURE DEVICE, and then press (Select button).
4. Use (Up button) or (Down button) to scroll to PRINT QUALITY, and then press (Select button).
5. Use (Up button) or (Down button) to scroll to CREATE CLEANING PAGE, and then press (Select button).
6. Follow the instructions on the cleaning page to complete the cleaning process.
7. If your printer model includes a duplexer, close the rear output bin.

Prints black vertical line at bottom of page on every print. HP 8550gn


This should help -

Developer streak
Developer streak is characterized by a line of dark or missing toner
that stretches from the leading edge to the trailing edge. Replace the
toner cartridge corresponding to the color of the developer streak (for
example, if the streak is magenta, replace the magenta toner
cartridge).

Repetitive defects troubleshooting
Repetitive defects are defects that occur in the same vertical position
on the page, but not necessarily on every page. Most repetitive
defects are caused by problems with one of the following, and are
indicated by the positioning of the defect on the page:
 developer roller (at 38 mm)
 charging roller (at 44 mm)—see additional information under
“Charge roller set” on page 454.
 cleaning roller (at 56 mm)
 developer DSD wheels (at 65 mm)
 transfer roller (at 66 mm)
 transfer drum (occurs once per 11-by-17 inch or A3-sized page,
or every other letter- or A4-sized page)
 fuser (at 150.5 mm)
 imaging drum (at 195 mm)
 transfer belt (at 222 mm)
