We have an HP 2605dn which previously worked ok but is now printing magenta very pale even on the self test page. Have tried new magenta cartridge, various cleaning procedures and a firmware update but still have the problem. Any suggestions?

This is a common problem on these printers.
Cause is dirty lenses and or mirrors in the laser unit.
Solution is remove laser unit, open it, clean lenses and mirrors (very carefully to avoid disturbing alignments, and scratching).
The laser unit is deep in the printer, so it's quite a lot of work, but very rewarding when you've fixed it.
Alternatives - buy a replacement laser unit and swap and clean old one at leisure, or get an exchange refurb printer - if you think your mechanical skills arn't up to it.
