Black smugs on any glossy print

Hi when I try to print any glossy paper (made for laser) on my 2600n =, I get black smuged all over the print. Verry little and its only noticeble on the white ares where no toner was printed. Its all over the page from top to bottom. but only affects white ares. Also this does not happen with bond or non glossy papers.

Thanks

    I'm having this problem but on the reverse of the sheet, so that if I print multiple sheets the loose toner on the back of one smudges onto the front of the next toner - but generally only on glossy papers.

Check the fusing area. (where the paper is heated)there is an adjustment for envelop . set it to normal because the pressure on fixing unit is too loose.

I have a HP Color laser jet 2600n printer. I have tried different Glossy paper, marked for laser jet, but still get bad smudges on my prints. these smudges are still visible on the next ordinary prints...


You need to ensure that you are telling the printer that and your print driver that you are using glossy paper as this will change the speed that the printer prints at and ensure better bonding.

Messy print when using glossy paper.


ok. sometimes the ink for hp if its not photo ink will do that. go to your printing settings/preferences and adjust your ink out put to less and dry time to more. you may have to adjust a few times to get the right balance. if you dont want to set it up for all printing you can also change settings when your ready to print. . just follow same steps when you are going to print. but you have to do it everytime you want to print a photo. also make sure to set your paper selection to glossy photo paper

Gray background where printo on glossy paper 130g/m2


hello

this sounds like a bad black ink cart, or the fuser rolls built into the printer are dirty.

you can swap out a black cart to test that theory, you can also just print a single blank page (no text or graphics) onto a piece of glossy paper and see if there is anything there after its gone thru the printer.

if the piece of paper has stuff on it it had to come from the rollers inside the printer.

service required,unless your comfortable changing out parts in your printer.

My officejet 7680 allinone printer misses printing black and smuges the paper


remove the black and see if there is any ink build up on it. look into the right hand side of the unit where the carriage rest on the service station and if you see a ***** of black ink then the unit needs to be cleaned out. USE A FLASHLIGHT TO SEE THERE

2600N: glossy paper


Is this HP glossy paper? I would think that laser printers have a hard enough time handling any glossy paper as it is because you run the risk of the gloss burning as the paper goes through the printer so you might have to use the paper recommended by HP.

Here are the specs of the accepted paper.

Adhesive jam


Some adhesive still on the transfer or fuser. Try a cleaning page, or some manual cleaning with dry towel-paper if adhesive signs are visible on transfer. Do not try fusing unit because very delicate silicone film inside.
If stain are of a single color, (p.es. magenta) you must change this cartridge.

Printing to card


The solution in this case is to either use Canon card paper to print on or set the media type in your printer driver to the correct paper.

The paper you are using is not absorbing the ink correctly, so when the paper exits the machine the rollers are contacting the ink and causing the smudging.

Either you have to alter how much ink is being used by changing the media type in the printer driver, or you have to buy the correct Canon paper

I've seen this happen on Canon's Photo printers when a generic glossy paper was used. Switching to canon paper solved the problem.
