HP 8500 Color Laser Printer- problem priting reds

I have an older HP 8500 Color Laser Printer. When printing red, the color does not fuse properly to the paper.

    Thanks. What is the foil and can I replace it?

    I have put a new drum kit and a new transfer kit in the HP 8500.

    I have a replacement fuser in stock and ready to install. Would a weak fuser only have problems with red?

The basic causes for this problem is either the foil is bad or weak. secondly the element in the fuser unit doesnt heat properly so try replacing it with a working one n see what happends.

HP Deskjet 5550 quit printing red color. Installed new color cartridge HP57. Quit printing red again after 5 pages. Is it a printer problem or cartridge problem?


Have you check your color cartridge if they are properly installed.

Make sure your are not using a refill cartridge.

Replace your tri-color cartridge with original an HP tri-color cartridge.

Red color cannot print


I presume the LCD screen on the printer also shows that there is toner. Take the toner out and reinsert it. If that doesn't work use the hp software to troubleshoot it may give more information.

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

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.

Red and Yellow colors are playing up


It's normally caused by dirty scanner mirrors, the machine will need to be dissembled, the laser scanner unit removed, taken apart and the mirrors cleaned. Unfortunately it is quite fiddly getting the scanner unit out, but this is a very common problem for the HP colour laserjet 2600's
