Question about HP LaserJet 4600dn Color Printer

1 Answer

Our school has a HP Laserjet 4600 dn printer. We started school in sept. and it worked fine then after the 2 week it would not print in color anymore. The page comes out blank. It will however print in grayscale but you have to change the preferences each time you use it. I have tried reinstalling the software, changing the toner, turning off and on, called Hp but it is out of warranty. I explained that this was for a school but they didn't care we would have to pay for online help. We don't have the option to pay any fees maybe someone has encountered this problem and maybe there is a quick fix solution. Would appreciate any help. Thank you

HP color laserjet 4600 dn printer How do I set

From the control panel of the printer, do the following:
1. arrow down once to highlight the 2nd item: "paper handling".
2. press the check button (turquoise color) to select this option.
3. arrow down 2x's until you highlight the "tray 2 size".
4. hit the check button to select this item.
5. You should see a size that is "letter" and there should be a ' * ' asterisk which means that is the default setting. If you see other paper sizes as well, then arrow up or arrow down to highlight the preferred size, and then press the check button to insert the asterisk ' * ' which will set that as the default.
6. you change the paper type as well as paper size for the other trays in the same fashion. Most HP printers will select paper according to the SIZE as well as the TYPE. The printer can "sense" the paper size in the paper cassette tray by the stops that hold the paper. Therefore the printer will choose that paper based upon the SIZE and what you define as its type.

11 blue dots print out down the left hand side of documents

It's probably the toner cartridge again. See if you can spot defects at the cyan drum unit that matches the marks on your printout.

Vertical dots on print output

1 1/2 inches apart would correspond to the diameter of the primary charge roller. You have one chrarge roller inside each toner cartridge so you need to determine which color the dots are and then replace that cartridge.
