Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

Blue smudging down left side of the paper and paper turning greyish color

Hi! Maybe you can help me. This is my 2nd 2600N printer. When the printing went on the last one I just replaced it. This time I would like to know if it can be fixed. This is the same problem I had with the last one as well.
The whole sheet of white paper is turning a light slotchy, greyish color.
Also there is a blue smudgy streak all along the left side of the paper.
There are also some find white lines running down the length of the paper when I print a solid color.
Have you experienced this? Do you know of a solution?
Thanks!
Sue

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.

Just replaced black cartridge in my 2600n color laser. I have smudged about a half inch wide 2/3rds over the right of each page. It only smudges in black. I have recalibrated several times. Printed at...


If this just started after you replaced the toner cartridge, one would have to say that it is a bad toner cartridge.
Print something that smudges. Pull down the front cover and look at the cartridges. Pay attention to the top one(black).
Look at the drum on that cartridge. You should see the toner sitting there. Compare it to the other cartridges which should be clean.

Gray smudge on edge of paper


If you get only black smudge even when you're printing in color your problem is most likely the black cartridge. If it smudge in colors look at your transfer belt, open the front door, the big belt that hangs on the door.

HP 2600n has black lines that run on right side of page


open the front door and wipe it off with a paper towel
slighty close the door until it opens the toner cartridges verify each cartridge is clean. If this is not the issue remove paper feeder from under the printer and verify it is clean also.

Blue color smears on every page


If you're still getting smudges, there must still be a label or part of a label either on one of the image drums or the transfer belt, i've found in the past it somethings gets stuck inside the unit on the cleaning blade. What i suggest is you run a print and open the front door at the paper travels along the transfer belt, look at all the image drums and see if you can see the smudge on one of them, if so the problem is caused by that cartridge if not it's in the transfer belt somewhere. You may need to try stopping the printer a few times and if the problem is in one of the cartridges, you will mst likely have to replace it, as with the transfer belt if you think that's causing the problem it's easier to remove it and rotate the belt manually.

Please note the image drums and the transfer belt are all light sensative

Smudges down left side of paper


Maybe something attached (corrector fluid or adhesive)on drum (green cylinder - don't touch it!) or more probably the fixing film on the fusing unit is damaged (probably some paper clip left over input bin, or trying to remove a paper jam with some sharp-pointed thing) If you have some other printer like this around, try with another print cartridge, if error persist , the fuser film is damaged...
