Question about HP LaserJet 3600n Printer

1 Answer

HP LaserJet 3600n I replaced the black cartridge. The new one was defective and continuously calibrated! - so replaced it with another one. Before figuring out that the cartridge was the problem I downloaded the latest drivers from HP - (Nov 2008?) for a fix.... But with the new cartridge and after full calibration, all graphics now print in extremely poor quality. I used to be happy with the print quality - but now it is unacceptable. The "narrative" print appears fine - but all graphics have about a 50% shadow and the small ones are illegible. Any ideas?

Yes,

Go to Computer, then System Properties, The Device Manager. Down the list of devices you will see "Imaging Devices". Open the category and dowble click on your printer. Go to the Driver tab, open and,

Marcus choose.."Rool Back Driver" and follow the instructions.

    One other comment for you, if the driver rollback doesn't have the desired effect, a full and proper uninstall and re-install of the printer will likely solve all issues. With HPs this is not as straightforward as you might think, but I am an expert at laying out the steps so that when the printer is re-installed, if anything about the printer does not work, you know to look elswhere. Troubleshooting is not alwys either quickly accomplished no completed. It wouls also be VERY helpful for you to provide the version of your Operating System and exact model # of your computer.

    Well, I uninstalled and reinstalled (it went directly to plug and play and not to the original CD I had in)... and it still doesn't print the graphics right.
    This is a Dell 2400 computer using XP.

    And - When I tried to install from the disk (Xp - autorun) - it says "file not found???"

3600 cartridge


You might be able to cancel the calibration. If not try to power it down and back up. If this doesnt work you probably have a bad cartridge. They have microchips in them and if they are defective it make strange things happen.

600 Hp Continuous Calibration 1 Votos

This is an answer to most of the problems of "continuous calibration" in the HP 3600.When the printer begins to constantly calibrate and falls in line so we have a problem, there are several causes for that problem and must be discarded from the simplest solution to the most complex.
Let's begin:

SOLUTION 1: The first thing to do is turn off the printer, and remove the cartridges, toner dirty or if the internal parts of the printer remove the excess, if there is dirt in the transfer belt clean.then close the front cover and turn on the printer without cartridges. then open the lid, place the magenta cartridge, and close the lid again, and so putting the four cartridges. If the problem persists try the next solution.

Solution 2: We must be alert to any strange noises in the printer, it is likely that one of the sticks is failing, if we are a strange noise came from, and replace the cartridge.

SOLUTION 3: There are times that it is software problem can be solved with a "COLD RESET" to do this we must turn the printer, and press the green button several times in the main menu until you see some options, navigate to the Down Arrow button until COLD RESET appears, press OK. the printer will restart and initialize. then restart and probably reached OK status.
SOLUTION 4: Sometimes by changes in temperature and environment where the printer is out of calibration sensor, to do a need to upgrade the firmware of the printer, usually ends the problem here. To download the firmware of the printer with the improvement due to "Countermeasure for multiple Successive Causing Environmental Sensor Calibrations." Is in the following link:

SOLUTION 5: If any of these options serves, it is likely that the mirrors of laser printer are dirty, this requires us to print a sheet to observe defects in print (moved, blurred, misplaced shadows), if any of these defects appear we disassemble the printer for cleaning the laser ... in this link are instructions
