    it's not about the ink level - it's been doing this for a long time. I always call the service, they repair it, never tell me what was wrong and then it starts again...

How to reset counter workcentre 6505dn?


Try this link:
Read the Billing Meter The total number of printed pages can be reviewed at the Printer Control Panel, on the Configuration Page, and in CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS).
Three meters are available:

  • Total Impressions
  • Color Impressions
  • Black Impressions
The billing meter counts the number of pages that were printed properly.
  • 1-sided prints, including N-up, are counted as one impression.
  • 2-sided prints, including N-up, are counted as two.

    NOTE: During 2-sided printing, if an error occurs after one side is printed properly, it is counted as one.
  • Color documents converted using an ICC profile on applications with the Color (Auto) setting can print in color, even if displayed in black and white. The data prints in color even if it seems to be black and white data on the Display Screen. In that case, the number of Color Impressions is increased.

    NOTE: Grayscale images printed with the composite black setting count as color pages because color consumables are used. Composite black is the default setting on most printers.
  • When printing automatic 2-sided printing, a blank page can be inserted automatically depending on the settings in the application. In this case, the blank page is counted as one page.
View the Billing Meters:
IMPORTANT: The Bill Meters track the total number of pages printed for the life of the printer; it cannot be reset.
To view the total number of pages printed:
  1. Press the [System] button on the Control Panel.
  2. Press the [Up] or [Down] arrow button until "Billing Meters" is selected, and then press the [OK] button. The Print Volume Report will be printed.
  3. Press the [Down] arrow button to scroll to the required meter. The number of printed pages is displayed below the name.
  4. Press the [Return] button to exit the Billing Meters menu.

Color is offset and blurred. There is no problem printing in black. Printing test page shows the same symptoms.


Hello
The color of HP LJ 2600n fades due to following reasons
1. the color cartridge near to empty 2. due to dust on reflection mirrors inside the printer
if the color cartridges are OK, then you need help of HP technician support, because cleaning of mirrors is very technical in nature for 2600n.
Dusty Environments can lead to Laser Scanner Contamination. The dust layer on the mirrors prevents proper transmission of the laser output in the imaging system leading to faded colors on the printed page. The initial stages of this failure typically occur in the magenta or yellow color planes as faded or light color. Often the left side is more faded than the middle.
You may need to contact the nearest Authorized Service Tech and get teh Laser Scanner replaced with the new released service part that has a mirror in a location where the dust ideally cannot reach easily.
Also, please ensure that the printer is relocated from the current location to a more dust free zone.
Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blurred pictures


ok..first you will need to print the nozzle check and see if all the color are printed out fine.. this feature is under the printer properties , under the utility tab.... assuming all your colors nozzle are printed fine..then the next thing for you to do is do the Print Head Alignment.. it's under the same place where you print the nozzle check.. when you press the Print Head Alignment, it will print a page out with many lines.. choose the one with the best alignment.. once u done that..try printing the image again..
oh..if your nozzle check print out is not good.. then you will need to perform head cleaning to clear the clogged head..

Hp color laserjet 1600 copies have a blurred image


This sounds like a registration problem.

Use the menu (on the printer) to print antest page AND a configuration/information page.

Look (critically) at the alignment of the seperate coloure Yellow Magenta Cyan. You will probably find that these are out of aligmnent across the page.

The cause of this, is that the printer can't perform a calibration properly (printer probably takes a long time when calibrating too) and is usually down to failure of one of the sensors on the transfer belt.

Sometimes you can clean these and solve the problem, but often is a failure of the component itself. Thes are NOT available as a spare part, and the repair to correct this would need a replacement transfer belt.

Transfer belt replacement in this printer is quite an involved task, though it is within the capabilities of someone with reasonable mechanical aptitude.

Xerox 7700 intermittant banding on a diagonal black only


You most likely have a bad black developer housing.
You can try removing the waste bottle and using that bla\ck stick inside the cover to clean the laser ****.
But it sounds like the developer housing has failed.
