Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

Extra background color in my printing

When I print anything from my HP 2600 color printer, the entire background area of the paper is covered by a very light layer of what I can only describe as "overspray". It especially happens when I'm printing labels. If I do one label on a sheet, the remaining sheet is no good because the more you run it through the printer, the darker the "overspray" becomes. It's almost always a pink color.

    I have the same exact problem. I too print labels. This is crazy, it shouldn't have a problem printing a few labels every now and then. It is a small office machine.


    Any suggestions on how to fix this?

You really should not run labels through this machine unless they are full sheets. If you are running used pages the glue will build up on the tranfer belt and cause the hazing.

you have something blocking the laser. if you remove the cartridge, look behind where it sits and you'll see a small line of glass going across. here you'll find its either covered in toner at the side your missing print or there is a ripped piece of paper. clean with a clean cloth or air duster

Can I get borderless printouts with HP CLJ 2600? I have had a look into the manual, but could not find an answer. Thanks in advance for a quick reply. /Tomas


It is never possible to print borderless on a laserprinter. It wil pollute your printer and causes problems. The only way is to print on a larger area and cut your printed paper afterwards.

HP color laserjet 2840 printer. no printing on the left side of the paper.


Hi

No print on the left side indicates that the toner powder on the left side is almost empty. Try to remove the toner cartridge and shake it well if the toner are new.

If still the same, you need to replace new toner cartridge to get better print out.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

HP 2600 is printing with a grey background. I have done several recalibrations and cleaned it but it does not fix the problem.


same as me, I got reduce this effect printing in normal paper as if i where printing transparency paper. The background is lighter now, but still appears.
The other thing I test, printing a blank page it was that with a glosy photo paper with the gloss side to the back i dont get any background. So i suspect it has to do with the tansfer belt ETB rollers.

HP Color LaserJet CM1312nfi MFP printer leaves a 2 inch area unprinted using any programs. So basically it doesnt print the entire page.


turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are preventing printing

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above. HP has an awesome website for this type os trouble shooting

hope this helps and good luck

Yellow on all color printings


What photo program do you use? Is the yellow background on all Word doc's? You should check WORD go to the Format|Background make sure "no fill" is selected. You should also check your print properties in control panel and any special program DELL uses. Make sure there isn't some custom setting that is printing the yellow background. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
