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.

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
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.
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.
