Hp 3500 faint printing and colours wrong

Hi Guys

I have printed out the event log page and it says density sensor out of range. I suspect this is why my printing is faint and the colors diplay incoorrectly.

Any advice will be appreciated.

    anything I print from the printer is faint/washed out, no matter the color, etc. the faintness of the print is universal throughout the page; I've tried multiple cartridges, fuser kits, roller kits, transfer kits, it doesn't work.

    I've also tried increasing the density all the way up to max (5) for all the colors and that didn't seem to do much of a difference. It is still faint and without closer examination and comparison of before/after prints, the new print looks just as faint.

    any help?

    thanks, ~Pablo

Rich,
Well, first off, are you using OEM or compatible cartridges? Compatibles are OK, just as long as they weren't rebuilt just by refilling. Secondly, you may want to check in the "Print Quailty" menu; here you will find info on increasing and decreasing the print density. Do you observe light printing over the entire page or just ceratin areas? How about certain colors? More to follow...............

WHAT IS DENSITY SENSOR IN LASERJET 8500


The Density Sensor is located inside the right upper door and senses the colour calibration pattern for each colour formed on the transfer drum during a calibration cycle. Press GO. Print a configuration page and then troubleshoot as an Image-quality problem as instructed in the user manual. Check the transfer guide for cracks and replace if necessary. Check the event log for errors numbered 54.00.0<X> the X indicates, 5-sensor abnormality, 4-Cyan, 3-Magenta, 2-Yellow, 1-Black. The last 3 error codes should be seen on the Configuration page.

HP Color Laserjet 3500 Problem


If you are sure the diagnostics show the colours correctly, one thing I would look at is to see if it had a colour profile set up for it.Don't know whether this printer normally has, if it has not I would suggest reinstalling the driver. To check - Start/Printers & Faxes/ Rt click on printer then properties, look under Colour management tab. Pete
