Customer Question

The right hand side of every page printed on my HP2600n has a streak that runs the full length of the page. I replaced the transfer belt assembly thinking that may help but it didn't
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: It is only the black ink part. So I changed the toner cartridge, still the same
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

did you try replacing the cartridge ?

usually that is a dirty corona wire. But if you clean it and it keeps coming back the cartridge is just spitting out too much toner in that section.

Or there is a problem with the drum/ imaging unit and its got a couple of lines that just stay magnetized for black no matter what.
