Question about HP LaserJet 1600 Printer
The printer just started making color copies with the images all blurred but most of the black and white print is find just the color prints and color letters comd out with double , like blurred image
This sounds like a registration problem.
Use the menu (on the printer) to print antest page AND a configuration/information page.
Look (critically) at the alignment of the seperate coloure Yellow Magenta Cyan. You will probably find that these are out of aligmnent across the page.
The cause of this, is that the printer can't perform a calibration properly (printer probably takes a long time when calibrating too) and is usually down to failure of one of the sensors on the transfer belt.
Sometimes you can clean these and solve the problem, but often is a failure of the component itself. Thes are NOT available as a spare part, and the repair to correct this would need a replacement transfer belt.
Transfer belt replacement in this printer is quite an involved task, though it is within the capabilities of someone with reasonable mechanical aptitude.
