Summary: Printer has had very light use and suddenly developed mostly magenta & cyan toner leaks. The excess toner is streaked and transfered to every page resulting in full length page striping. The print outs are absolutely useless for presentation and barely useable for drafts.
Summary: This printer started off wonderfully. Then, over the past year, the toner leaks and noise from the printer is unbearable. My office has tried to contact HP but to no avail. The HP service department doesn't speak english.
Summary: This is an amazing color printer - fast and perfect color reproduction. However there is a serious flaw with the toner cartridges. We have had toner leak out of two of the color cartridges, covering the inside of the unit with the powder.
Print Quality Degrades the More You Use This Printer

Summary: Our company has two HP 4600dtn units located in completely different states and both are experiencing nearly identical print quality problems. After 12 months (Unit 1) and 6 months (Unit 2) of use our print quality has degraded substantially and many times is so poor that we are unable to send out...
Summary: We've had this printer at my office for about 2 1/2 years. It's a giant waste of money. Magenta cartridges spew toner everywhere. Cyan cartridges streak. It's even worse when you use the manual feed. HP has no answers because they deny all the issues. HP's support is lackluster at best anyway.
Summary: i have been using an HP 4600 for about 2 years now. There is one more printer of the same model in my building. BOTH printers have developed this problem of printing a nice, fat magenta line across the backs of pages.
Summary: Powder from the toner cartridges get all over the inside of the printer and then ruins every page that is printed. Every page that is printed from my printer has a greyish color due to the powder dirt inside. It is impossible to clean it since the powder is everywhere.
Summary: This printer is a lemon. Had it for a few years and the entire time it streaks large quantities of magenta all over the backs of pages. What a mess. Called HP, had a repairman out, etc., but the problem continues. This thing weighs a ton and it spews forth a ton of garbage.
HP 4600 Expensive, Worst Investment, NO HP Support

Summary: My department has had this printer for a few years and for the last year it sat unused because the toner leak problem "renders" it useless. We have even used it a few times with the smears and it developed a horrible noise. We paid to have it cleaned and adjusted, which worked for a month.
