HP 2605dn laser - color fading

Hi -

I made the mistake of taking my color cartridges on my HP 2605dn to a local ink guy for refill, and the colors didn't print well. OK fine, past that, but now when I install brand new HP color cartridges, the color is still very funky.

What can I do?

Thanks

Julia

    My printer was working fine, nice bright clear print, when one day it started printed with faded colors. Red looks like faded pink, and the other colors are faded too. I changed the only cartridge that indicated "low" but it didn't make any difference in the print quality. I've tried running a cleaning cycle, and still the print is faded.



    Can you help me?

HP has a list of troubleshooting steps you can go through for the HP 2605dn when you experience print quality issues.

Two specific things I would try from that list are:

  1. Clean the electrostatic transfer belt.
  2. Clean the printer paper path.
Good Luck!

I have a universal color inkjet refill kit need to know to apply to my laserjet 4000 toner cartridge C4127X


Short answer: you cannot use any INKJET refill kit for a Laser Printer!

Laser Printers use TONER (e.g. powder) and not INK.

Hope it helps!

This printer does not use ink cartridges. It is a laser printer and uses toner cartridges. Yes, one or all three toner color cartridges maybe running out of toner.

My Hp Color laserjet 2605 was not working some colors (yellow,megeanta) so how to resolve this problem ? all color tones are new ! i would pinted test page black and cyan was ok


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

Faded prints are possible due to following reasons.

1. Fogged red mirrors inside the Laser box
2. Alignment of the Laser Box
3. Calibration Problem
4. Cleaning Problem

I will guide you with simple steps first, if this dosen't work working with laser box is little tough & time consuming, hence will describe later.

To Calibrate the colors, Press the 'Green Button' in the front panel, use the arrow keys to navigate through menu.

Select 'System Setting' by pressing the green button again, navigate using the arrow keys and select the 'Calibrate Color', select green button to select and confirm to 'Calibrate Now'. This will take few minutes.

In addition to that, to clean the paper path, select the green button and use the arrow keys and navigate thru' menu and select 'Service'. select using the green button and navigate through menu and select cleaning option. This will take few minutes.

Try printing some documents and check whether you have fixed. If you have not got the original print quality, Let know to guide you more technically.

Replaced ink cartridges and now colors appear faded on brother mfc 9840


Check to see if you might have purchased Photo Magenta or other color by mistake. I had my daughter get me some ink and the clerk said that it would work fine so she purchased two replacement cartridges of Photo ink. Resulting in very light print color. This might be your problem. Worth checking.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Color laser printers. Costs for toner vs. initial costs for ptr


Have you thought about having your printer cartridges refilled? There are huge savings to be made in doing so and the quality can be just as good as the original cartridges (depending upon the refiller). Another option would be for you to purchase an older color laser printer such as the HP Color Laserjet 4500 or 4550. I use one myself and couldnt be happier with it. And as its an older printer, you can get the cartridges relatively cheap.

Color ink is not working


Dear Black Rose
It is strongly recommended to change your colour cartridge.
Or it can be possible that you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
The nozzle of colour cartridge are blocked, if you did not use your colour cartridge for a long time.
Purchase a new cartridge if you can or go for a local refiller to refill (if possible) your colour cartridge.
Thanks
