My yellows ansd greens are switched

there are a number of possible errors here.
have the machine align its printheads
then have the machine complete colour calibration ( you will need good working printheads to complete the calibrations
when this is finished have the machine print out its config pages and demo print page ( you can find how to do this in the online user manual) this is done to Isolate the printer from the fault - if The demo page and config pages are printed correctly then the error lies external to the printer ( the software printing the document)
check to see if the correct printer driver is installed (to be sure uninstall then re-install) open the driver and check to see in Preferences/colour that the settings are 'let machine decide colours'
or set to adobe pdf. print out the test page from the driver and pay close attention to the windows logo at the top of the page- it should match that on the windows start screen
if you can see that the green yellows are still out of calibration then you may need to change the printheads ( CYAN/Yellow) as the error may lie internal to the printhead.
at the end of the day the fault lies most likely with the software setup or the printheads.

My HP Photosmart C4280 doesn't give correct colours when scanning

You can usually calibrate your printer. When you first get your printer you may have to run through tests. One of them is where you print out a sheet with multiple colours on it and you then scan it to calibrate the scanner.Scanning will rarely give a perfect representation of the actual photo or image but if you do calibrate it may solve your problems.

There was bits of paper, from a stuck edge from a sheet of business cards that I think are perhaps still in the printer. When I print a colour sheet the alignment is off, printing black and white seems OK.

What do you mean by alignment?
If you mean that the colours are misaligned, run a full calibration. Repeat it three times and then try your printing.
If bits of the business cards were left in the printer - it should affect the colour printing as well as B + W. You would also be getting paper jams.

My 2600N HP color laserjet, The colors are not lined up, Printer needs to be manually calibrated. Seams like red is not aligned it is printing higher than it is supposed to.

Go to HP's web site, look for the link to drivers and support. Then find the support and drivers for the LaserJet 2600n printer.

Once there, you can download most anything they have for that printer, for free. It only costs if you want them to email it to you on a DVD or CD.

Download all you can, related to the printer system - including manuals. Follow their instructions on how to install the printer, and get it installed properly by following the manuals.

Once you have done that, you can find the portion of the manual which explains how to get that printer to calibrate itself.

Mine will do it on a timed bases. I have it set to calibrate itself every 30 minutes or so, just to ensure that it works fine ... expecially since I have to print guides and manuals for customers, many of whom are government agencies and the like.

So having the printer calibrated on a constant basis is necessary, to ensure that my contract - with my clients - is always exactly right.

Try that, and I'm sure it will help you.

Logo prints out blurry

It would more likely be the transfer belt then the fuser. Try doing the calibration 3 times in a row and see if that helps.

Try removing each of the cartridges and vigorously shake. It is possible that the powder inside has formed into blocks, partially solidified, gummed together. This is specially true if the ambient temperature is usually cold and the printer is seldom used.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

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
