HP 2600 ghosting

My HP 2600n laserjet has started showing ghost images running down the left side of the page. I have tried cleaning but it does no good. Any help?

    I tried changing the toner cartridge. That did not improve the image ghosting.

    down the right side of the page....only with the black though

    The supplies status report only lists the amount of toner left.

    This printer seems to be notorious for poor performance with card stock especially. Blobs and ghost shadows everywhere.

    Good printer for standard paper, but if you are planning to print on card stock...don't buy it.

It is a massive pain but a solution that worked for me is to run a 'clean' after every card stock sheet. I know it's wicked awful but it actually worked and I had to run 100 times (one for each good color card stock)
First put plain paper in tray 2
Next
Hit left arrow until you get to 'system service' and press green check
Next
then go to 'clean' and press check
Now it should print a clean image without ghosting

    Sorry didn't read the problem properly, this is normally caused by a faulty transfer belt. Print a supplies status page and check the life of the consumables

Ghost images of the same printing repeated down the page


Run a half test. While printing a few pages, open the cover, pull out the toner and look down at the paper. If you see the ghost images replace the toner. If you don't see the ghost images, replace the fuser.

HP 2600n is printing ghost which distorts text and objects


Using the left and right arrow buttons on the printer select the main menu 'service' press the green tick button in the middle of the arrows and now you are in the service menu press the right arrow once and you should see 'cleaning mode', press the green tick once and your printer should clean itself. If you are still getting ghosting you might need a new toner or maybe a service.

My printer is leaving faint marks of other words down the side of the page...any way to fix that?


Yes, It sounds like a ghosting issue. Several components can cause a ghosting issue. The distance between the first occurance(the one on purpose) and the second occurance(ghost image) can determine the part of the machine causing the image problem
56.6mm - Fuser
54.5mm - Transfer Belt
75.4mm - Drum unit (1 of toner carts)

I get ghost images every 2-3 inches down both


run the "cleaning" cycle is the first thing that you should trying.
The Fixing Film Assembly is worn-out. it is a frequent problem.

Fix this with a new FUSER Assembly for HP Colour Laserjet 2600/n (200/240v) Part Number: RM1-1821-240CN or Fusing Assembly – RM1-1820(110/120v

HP laserjet 2100 prints pages fine, but has "ghosting" and duplicating text and images several lines down from original text/image. Recently installed new HP toner cartridge and was working fine for about...


Sounds like a bad drum on the cartridge. Contact HP, and they will probably replace it free, or maybe help you to troubleshoot.

Hp laserjet 2600 ghosting


You are most likely correct. this is called fuser offsetting, to check it out, stop the paper being printed MID CYCLE open the front door just when you think the paper is behind it..., pull the paper off the transfer belt. Is the ghost there? Probably not, and if it isnt, then it is your fuser. I can lead you to a reputable supplier. You can buy QUALITY rebuilt fusers with great warranties at prices well less than new OEM.

HP LaserJet 1012 Printer prints ghost images


I ran the hp toolbox "cleaning" mode too and it did not help the problem at all. I still have a dark smear concentrated in the middle of the page, and ghost images repeated lighter all the way down the page.
