Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer

1 Answer

Red and Yellow colors are playing up

Hi there, I have a HP Color Laser jet 2600n that prints fine most colors except red and yellow, which it virtually doesn't print at all except a few streaks of these colors. I have a feeling that the problem could be that the printer nozzle of something like that could have dried out as there wasn't a cartridge in there for a while until we got a new one??? could something like this have happened? it still prints black and some colors such as blue fine. How could i clean the printer.

I think I found a good service manual at this link but I'm afraid of being ripped off, and pay the money and not get a proper serviceing manual:

Do you think the link is ok??

Thanks a lot for your help

Sincerely
Emmanuel

It's normally caused by dirty scanner mirrors, the machine will need to be dissembled, the laser scanner unit removed, taken apart and the mirrors cleaned. Unfortunately it is quite fiddly getting the scanner unit out, but this is a very common problem for the HP colour laserjet 2600's

This printer does not use ink cartridges. It is a laser printer and uses toner cartridges. Yes, one or all three toner color cartridges maybe running out of toner.

My Hp Color laserjet 2605 was not working some colors (yellow,megeanta) so how to resolve this problem ? all color tones are new ! i would pinted test page black and cyan was ok


This is a common problem with this model of printer. The scanner optic degeneration is due to dust buildup on mirrors and lenses. Since the most vulnerable mirror reflects its laser beam to the magenta and yellow toner cartridges, red tones are the first to show fading. Colors shift: purples turn blue and oranges turn yellow. The printer optics will need to be cleaned by a compliant technician to resolve this issue as it means dismantling your printer and cleaning the mirrors and lenses in the optic section to fix the problem.

Hp lazer jet 2600N won't print red color what will fix it. Has a new cartridge


You may need to replace FORMATTER BOARD & DC CONTROLER BOARD ASSY which are located behind the printer. Both BOARDs are side by side together. Just open the back cover, you will see it.

I havean HP 2600n, anything red prints in a faded yellow. I've seen other posting regarding this put all answers suggest something wrong with the printer. However, when I had a supplies status page...


change the cartridges. Theres nothing else that can alter the color like that without rewriting the drivers. B4 you do, take each one out, shake gently from side to side to even out any toner, and try again.If they print better, your toner is low.
