    HP2600N roller problems

    Does anyone have any idea what causes this? (attached).
    I noticed that my images were arriving with a faint horizontal smear, opened up the front cover to see several-colored slanted "zip" lines across the black plastic roller sheet.
    I don't want to tell you what my first effort at cleaning involved; you'd all roll your eyes up at my ignorance.
    I found the "Clean" command on the HP2600N maintenance web page (C:WINDOWSsystem32zhhp2600.exe 3910 AGISSI.DLL 2600 zhhp_res.dll) and ran it.
    I'm now getting a faint yellow shade right across everything I print, and have stopped printing for the day.

    Thanks for the reply Doc.
    Not a Deep Clean", that I can see, but a Clean" that requires a sheet of paper fed in, then reversed and re-fed.

    >Have you tried that yet ??
    Yes, thanks. It didn't seem to do much.
    I ended up with a sheet of paper with a broad diagonal "zip" bar (black) and a pointed arrow.
    I set it back in for the other-side second-pass and out it came.
    No apparent messy goo or blurred look-what-I-dragged-off-the-roller stuff.

    I have seen the HP2600N wander off into "Cleaning" mode for 60 seconds or so, the way it periodically decides that printing is so passé and "Calibrating" is so much better, but using ths help screen "Clean" button seemed to initiate a different process - first time it's used a piece of paper to wipe itself!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by chrisgreaves on 25-Aug-08 12:44. Further comments from suppliers)</P>> But did it get itself clean ???
    I know, I know!

    This from my best supplier (http://lasernetworks.com/)

    Please read below, this is from our Quality Control;

    That is your transfer belt sometimes it gets worn and could cause a defect the images get transferred onto this transfer belt so it could be the belt or the yellow toner cart, not recommended to clean this as it could cause more damage.
    If you have a spare yellow cartridge please try changing it to see if that is the problem, if not we will have to send a technician out....


    I have placed a new Yellow within and am now waiting for the HP2600N to finish re-calibrating ....


    (later)The transfer belt would have to be replaced by a technician as it is not considered a consumable part and I am waiting to see if service/parts can give me a price so that you have an idea of what cost we are looking at to have it replaced…..

    Since it's not consumable, I guess it's good that you didn't try to eat the transfer belt <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    If I told you to Belt Up!, would you then be Fed Up?

    (later) The cost would be $cdn265.77/installed plus applicable taxes. That would be for the part and the technician to come out and properly install it for you….
    I paid, I think, about $450 a year ago for the reconditioned printer.
    HP site says that they are no longer for sale, so my experiment with color having been successful, I should probably buy a new one with manufacturer warranty (<post:=728,291>post 728,291</post:>).

    I'd probably be just as I am. My mother always said I never did what I was told. <img src=/S/groovin.gif border=0 alt=groovin width=21 height=21>

    Hi Chris,

    If you really like the HP2600n, here's a link for new (?) one. Albeit that it might have fallen off a truck! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Cheers, Bob
    Regards,
    Bob

    Thanks Bob.
    Maybe it's just an end-of-stock item.
    I got mine as an experiment, and would probably move on to a factory-fresh newer model.
    Still and all, $350 is a lot less than I paid for my reconditioned.
