Have you tried the driver for the 2600?
Currently Being ModeratedMay 5, 2011 11:54 AM (in response to sig)
Both the generic and HP/Snow Leopard approved drivers.

On the Macs and/or PC where it works can you set up printer sharing?
Currently Being ModeratedMay 5, 2011 12:07 PM (in response to sig)
Have not considered sharing. It is more odd because it wasn't a clean break. It was more a wave of this problem over two weeks.

I'm having this same issue. It's gotten progressively worse over the past couple weeks. Like James, my PC's can print to the 2600n just fine, but it seems my macs will add additional black toner to the pages.

Exactly my same problem. Progressive. Additional black toner. Are your macs on 10.6.7?
Currently Being ModeratedMay 19, 2011 9:20 AM (in response to jamesohagan)
Yes, MacBook Pro and a MacPro, both having issues, and both on 10.6.7.

Was it a cascading problem? Mine was cascading. It would happen to one printer at a time for no reason. I even had a repair guy come out because I thought it was a fuser issue.

Well we only have the one 2600n, so I can't say. I'm not even sure it hit both my macs at the same time, since I hardly print from the MacBookPro. I only tested it out after the MacPro could no longer print to the 2600.
Yesterday, I did setup printer sharing on one of my XP machines here. Not very efficient, but it works for the time being. Hopefully a fix for this is found eventually.

OK, I think I might have a solution. I have not tested it but I need to do a bit more research. What I have discovered is that it might be a Firmware issue. We found one that is still working fine and it actually has the older firmware numbered 20050610. The ones were are having the issues with are on firmware numbered 20070716.
I am going to see if I can revert the firmware... if I can find the older firmware!

Hi there. have you found a solution to your problem?
have you installed MacOS X 10.6.8?
I could print fine using the mac driver that came with the printer. it's outdated and not snow leopard native, but it works
if you have trouble finding it, I have a copy that I can share

I loaded up 10.6.8 yesterday, and didn't even think about trying it again. Sure enough just tried it and and it appears to be working as it should! Now, lets hope it lasts.
