Question about HP LaserJet 1600 Printer
I recently purchased the HP 1600 color laser printer, and am very disappointed. I also purchased a full set of cartridges. After exactly one (1) page of printing it stopped printing stating the black cartridge was empty! I was able to override that error; but now every page has a smudge-streak running from top-to-bottom on the right side (as you're looking at the page) of every page, and the printer is giving me a loud clicking noise as it prints.
I could live with the clicking, but I need a solution to the smudgey problem.
HP 1600 is quite a decent little printer, so you shouldn't be dissapointed - if it's working properly, which clearly it's not in this case.
It seems that you have 2 problems here.
Firstly it shouldn't click loudly, so you need to be talking to whoever you bought the printer from.
The smudging - is probably a dirty fuser.
There are laser printer cleaning sheets, that will work quite well, but ideally it needs a little bit of dismantling to get at the fuser to clean the two fuser rollers.
I've seen lots of these with dirty fusers, and a clean with IPA does the trick.
