Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

Colour Laserjet 2600n has problem shown in its manual as "Vertical streaks or bands appear on the page" and the remedy is "Replace any low print cartridges". A printout of Supplies Status Page shows that no cartridge has reached Low Level having only printed 412 total pages with estimated pages remaining as - BLACK=793. YELLOW=836. CYAN=483 MAGENTA=546. Automatic Cleaning has been done.

    Problem unsolved

  • Blasketto Jun 02, 2008

    problem still unsolved after carrying out your suggestions.

  • Blasketto Jun 02, 2008

    Problem is described, along with a solution, in the H.P. Manual, but it only suggests replacing cartridges. As all cartridge show that they are not low and have printed only 412 pages, there is estimated a further 546 pages of toner remaining.

    My lack of experience doed not allow me to dismantle cartridges. Doing so would void the warranty. Would you please tell me how to do "Manual Drum Cleaning" other than cleaning the exterior (which I have already done)?

OK, I talked to my friend who is an HP Tech and he said that there are only a few things to try. All of which are in your manual. First restore the factory defaults. If that don't work, Recalibrate the printer. If that don't work you have a faulty ink cartridge. Hope this helps

To restore the factory-set defaults
1. Use the (LEFT ARROW) or the (RIGHT ARROW) button to select Service, and then press
(SELECT).
2. Use the (LEFT ARROW) or the (RIGHT ARROW) button to select Restore defaults, and
then press (SELECT).
The device automatically restarts.

Calibrating the printer
Calibrations are performed at regular intervals. For best print quality, a calibration can be
performed from the control panel using the following steps:
1. Use the (LEFT ARROW) or the (RIGHT ARROW) button to select System setup and then
press (SELECT).
2. Use the (LEFT ARROW) or the (RIGHT ARROW) button to select Print quality and then
press (SELECT). Calibrate color will display on the control panel.
3. Press (SELECT).
4. Use the (LEFT ARROW) or the (RIGHT ARROW) button to select Calibrate now and then
press (SELECT).
5. Press (SELECT) to start the calibration.

Hi,

Try removing each of the cartridges and vigorously shake. It is possible that the powder inside has formed into blocks, partially solidified, gummed together. This is specially true if the ambient temperature is usually cold and the printer is seldom used.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    or you can try not so gentle taps on the cartridge to loosen things up inside (toner).

Hp 2600n line


after you have printed a few pages switch the machine off just as the paper leaves the fuser. then open the front cover and take a close look at the image transfer belt ( black plastic conveyor type belt)
use a torch shone accross the belt to better light the error- if you can see these Green/yellow/cyan lines on the belt then theres a good chance its coming from the toner units- ( also try print quality troubleshooting pages in the menus under diagnostics.look at the individual colour pages and look for any lines or Uneveness about the shaded colour) replace whichever toner is not printing correctly

Leaves streaks vertically on paper changed cartridge still there. 2600n printer


when you open the front of the print you will see the streaks on the black transfer sheet.

Close the front door half way or until all the cartridge doors open.
You will see the same streaks on the problem cartridge(s) as on the transfer sheet.

Change that particular cartridge, let the printer recalibrate, and presto streaks are gone.

HP 2600n prints black streaks on a page


Could be a few things but black cartridge is most common cause, they are not "cleanable" one just replaces them, if you carts are non gen HP then that will surely be your problem, slight chance could be transfer belt assy or fuser. they are also just a case of replacing, go for cart, replace it and see.
