Hi Hubregt,

If your getting a solid black pages when using your HP Color LaserJet 3600, it might caused by faulty driver or damaged cartridge. There are some ways to check if this is a software or hardware problem. Try to reinstall the driver you may also try to print a self test. Here are some recommendations that you can use to correct the problem.

1. Unplug the cable that you used to connect the computer to the printer.

2. Please plug the power cord of the printer to a working power outlet.

3. Now try to print a self-test to determine if the problem is related to the printer. By doing a self-test you can determine if this is a printer issue or a driver issue.

4. If the machine still prints black pages, you need to replace the toner cartridge. A damage or faulty cartridge my cause the problem.

5. You could also try to remove all the accessories (cartridges, memory or I/O board) and try to print a self-test again.

6. Just to make sure that you don't have issue with the software side, I recommend to reinstall the driver.

-->If your still encountering the same problem, the printer may need to be serviced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

HP 4700 not printing cyan


If your printer is missing a color it could be caused by (off the top of my head) 3 possibilities.
1. High voltage board
2. laser/scanner assembly for that color
3. DC controller might need a firmware upgrade, www.hp.com
Run the PQ diagnostics, check the cyan color
Run the Cartridge Disable diagnostic. Remove all cartridges and take the black cartridge and insert it where the cyan normally is. If the black prints in the cyan slot, your cyan cartridges are bad. If the black doesn't work then go to #3 above. It won't cost any money to upgrade the firmware. If it still doesn't work call in a printer tech.
At this point you may need a printer tech.

HP color laserjet 2840 for Mac -- Pages print but are totally blank. Appreciate if you can advice A.S.A.P


Pages print but are totally blank.
  • The sealing tape might still be in the
    print cartridges.
Solution "Verify that the sealing tape has been
completely removed from the print
cartridges."

  • The document might contain blank
    pages.
Solution "Check the document that you are
printing to see if content appears on all
of the pages."
  • The device might be malfunctioning.
Solution "To check the device, print a
Configuration page."

My HP Color LaserJet 3600 prints nothing but black pages. All cartridges seem OK.


Check the printer properties and see if it isn't set to print black and white only.

My boss want to replace the black ink cartridge for one that prints color. Can this be done with the HP 12-a cartridges? HP Laser jet 1022


Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.

So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)

I would recommend looking at an entry level color laser printer from hp, such as the CP2025 (http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF25a/18972-18972-3328060-15077-236268-3673580.html) if you are looking into purchasing a color laserjet.

Hope this helps

No writing on the right side of the sheet with black and color faded out on same side with color


if i read this correctly both color and black are missing from one side?
this is most likely a problem with the belt.
if it was just 1 color or black it would be that toner/drum cartridge or the laser associated with it.

I haven't the manual for this printer color laserJet 2600n series,


document.tlSearch.tx.value=unescape("") s.gif s.gif
HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer - Installing Print Cartridges When a print cartridge approaches the end of useful life, the control panel displays a message recommending that to order a replacement. The printer can continue to print using the current print cartridge until the control panel displays a message instructing to replace the cartridge. The printer uses four colors and has a different print cartridge for each color: black (K), cyan (C), magenta (M), and yellow (Y). Replace a print cartridge when the printer control panel displays one of the following messages: Replace yellow cartridge, Replace magenta cartridge, Replace cyan cartridge, Replace black cartridge. The control panel display also indicates the color that should be replaced (unless a genuine HP cartridge is not currently installed). Change the print cartridge
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Open the front door. c00315320.gif CAUTION: Do not place anything on the transfer belt (ETB), which is located on the inside of the front door.
  3. Remove the used print cartridge from the printer. c00315321.gif
  4. Remove the new print cartridge from the bag. Place the used print cartridge in the bag for recycling. c00315322.gif
  5. Grasp both sides of the print cartridge by the blue handles and distribute the toner by gently rocking the print cartridge from front to back. CAUTION: Do not touch the shutter or the surface of the roller. c00315323.gif
  6. Remove the orange shipping locks and the orange shipping tape from the new print cartridge. Discard the shipping tape and shipping locks according to local regulations. c00315324.gif
  7. Align the print cartridge with the tracks inside the printer, and using the handles, insert the print cartridge until it is firmly seated. c00315325.gif
  8. Firmly close the front door. c00315326.gif
  9. Turn on the printer. After a short time, the control panel should display Ready.
    NOTE: If a cartridge is in the wrong slot or is the wrong type for the printer, the control panel will display one of the following messages: Incorrect yellow, Incorrect magenta, Incorrect cyan, Incorrect black.
  10. Installation is complete. Place the used print cartridge in the box in which the new cartridge arrived. See the enclosed recycling guide for recycling instructions.
  11. If a non-HP print cartridge is in the printer, check the printer control panel for further instructions.
    NOTE: When replacing or changing a black print cartridge, a cleaning page will automatically print. This helps prevent speckles on the front or back of printed documents. A cleaning page can also be generated using the control panel or the HP Toolbox.
