Question about HP Color LaserJet 2600n Printer
Shadows are appearing on both the left and right side of paper. i.e Text is repeating itself. Have recently changed Black cartridge, however shadows appear in other colours as well. Please help!
Heating unit (fuser) 's teflon roll is dirty causing ghosting. Either
replace with new heating unit (it is on front top near paper output) or
It can be cleaned carefully with electonic cleaning spray (non grease) WITHOUT using any force (be patient) wiping with cloth and spraying again and again utill it is clean. Then spray silocone spray to cloth and wipe teflon with that.
Open unit: Remove mains and usb/network leads. Remove paper holder (printed papers) from top back. Under that you'll see small arrows on both sides. Push screwdriver to hole and release locks. After that you can raise dark lid from top. Under that on white lid there is 4 screws, open them. Open all back cover scews and take the cover out lifting from bottom edge. Open 1 screw from right cover (where network socket is. Lift white top cover a little bit and then you can open right side cover (from back to forward). Under cover there is flat cable coming from display unit. Open it and then you can remove top white lid. Push the rest of dark paper holder backwards (on top) and it opens and you'll see the power supply under that. When looking from back there is 1 screw at right holding black plastic roller plate. Open the screw and bend the plate to left (looking from back) Now you can see 50% of brown teflon roll that is around the heater lamp. Clean it with spray and cloth pushing CAREFULLY from bottom to top.
Do NOT push teflon horizontaly as there is nothing on back of teflon and it may broke. Underside there is a metal plate under teflon and you can use LITTLE force for wiping. You can rotate teflon pushing white gear at top (from top to bottom, it turns only this direction). When totally clean, wipe with cloth sprayed with silicone spray.
I do not know how long this helps (just did it by myself) but the printing result is perfect again with same color casettes than before.

It's neither the drum or cartridge. I was having the same problem and I called HP tech support (I am still under warranty). They had me download updated printer utility and change the paper I was using. I was using the cheaper multi-purpose paper. Use the paper specifically for Laser. Hope this helps and I hope you haven't spent alot of money replacing cartridges or drums!

This actually sounds like a different problem. Usually, "ghosting" happens on refilled cartridges, but the 2600 seems to be really prone to this. We find if that it is refilled, they need to replace the PCR, or mag roller! However, even OEM straight from HP do this. It might hint at a bad drum too....

Laser or the pc board is going out BUT I would say that after you change all of the cartridges
