Follow the link by CoolDragon.

Do exactly as the step by step procedure tells you. It is spot on.
Once you get down to the mirrors etc - use a cotton bud to clean the lense and mirrors. I had a very poor print before I cleaned them. Red had just about gone. Now its back as new. Its worth the effort.

When I open the toolbox for the LaserJet 2600n printer, it tells the website is not available. I need to clean the jets etc.


You need not to clean laser printer cartridges,it may color or mono. Print cartridges them selves having cleaning blade to clean the surface of the OPC drum every time when its initializing or printing. If you found any vertical tracks on print outs replace the particular cartridge.. If you have any kind of print quality issue,perform calibrate process through printer menu..quality..calibrating.. even if you found quality issue clean the Laser scanner assm.(professionals only can do)

If the results print out like this, there are two possibilities:
1. Red ink in the cartridge runs out. Solution: injecting with red ink
2. If the red ink has been filled, and check pattern is still not out, meaning the color cartridge error.
Solution: replace the cartridges

Printing to much red. the picture in print shop looks fine but actual print is to red or pinkish.


you'll need to install a color management profile matching your printer, or use manual settings in Photoshop (if that's what you're using) so that the software will issue a lesser red image to compensate for the overly red printouts of your printer.
Another point to consider is that printshops may be using a lot more sophisticated print machines than our everyday laser printers. Also, from what I've read sofar, most color laser printers are optimized for charts, tables and text printouts. Image printing isnt their favorite thing to do.

Black print fading in & out . I replaced the black drum with a brand new one, but the problem still exists. I followed the instructon about rolling the drum before installing but its still the same....


If your printer prints like this:

The problem is with the developer in the imaging unit. The problem can be fixed by either replacing the imaging unit for $100+ or you can fix it yourself by cleaning the imaging unit. You will need simple hand tools and if you are careful restore the print quality of your printer. I have a link to instructions that should help you http://www.fixya.com/support/r4120906-clean_developer_blades_samsung_clp_300 Hope this helps you.

Red does not print on one side of the page


I have bad news :( when that happen on this model its because one of the lasers its contaminaded. Dust or toner get inside the unit and block the light of the laser for the magenta causing issues with color that uses red. If you print a configuration report the red look faded in the sides. Changing the cartridge wont fix it. it can be repaired but its expensive. I suggest to get a new model. or if you call HP they can exange it for about $200

I have an HL-4040CDN Brother printer that prints too red. We just purchased it and need how to fix this problem. It also prints colored text too light.


Many people are having problems with this machine. If you are dissatisfied with the quality I would return it and try something else. Your most economical solution is going to be a factory refurbished (with warranty) HP color laserjet. Staples usually has some good deals.

HP Laser Jet 4700n-Light printing on right side of paper. Removed all cartridges and toner, cleaned and recalibrated after start up. Still light printing on right side. Any suggestions??


Is the light printing the same for black and white vs color? Light printing on a side is not uncommon for these printers. It is usually caused by the laser optics getting dirty. But this usually shows up more in one color than the other. Such as something printed in yellow is fine while red is faded on one side. If the light on the right side printing is the same on all colors including black then I would suspect something with your transfer unit.
If you do notice that it us just on black or another color then it is definately time to get the laser optics cleaned.

Canon LBP5000 lack of Red (magenta)


Searched on web for same problem on HP2600 printer and found a sight that explained how to fix it. It is caused by the mirrors getting dirty. Magenta is the first one affected because it is on the bottom and points upwards. Requires printer to be pulled apart and mirrors cleaned. takes about 1 to 2 hours. HP2600 printer seems to be the same as Canon LBP5000.

Prints "blue" on a document that supposed to be "red"


the red color contains the blue and magenta colors so your problem is not printing blue insted of red , your red laser miror is dirty from inside you should open the back of the printer then open the laser scaner then clean it then replace it
