HP 2605 Prints red wash over pdfs

I use an HP 2605 color laser jet.

When I print any document with a pdf, the entire pdf is printed with a red wash over it. Anyone else having this problem? Any suggesions?

How many prints are in the magenta pcu?
That is the place to start. Make sure you use an HP cartridge.

How long is the status bar on the magenta cpu.
It sounds by your description that it is failing.
I would swap the magenta out and see>
