If you install the HP Color Inkjet CP1700 Toolbox software it will give you all the on screen monitoring you need in lieu of a defective LDC display.

Printer is offline and will not print. Restarting does not help.

When you double click the Printer and Faxes icon in the Control Panel you will see the printer that your computer is currently using. See.... if the printer image is clear it is online and ready to use, if its blurred then its in offline mode and cannot be use.

To correct offline printer.. some possible reasons is on the usb cable.. check if there is no open wire along the cable...Inserting the USB connector on the other usb slot of the cpu sometimes work just wait first until it is read.

If the printer is still blurred and offline after checking the usb connection, the 2nd thing to do is check the properties of the printer if it is set to offline mode. how? Double click your printer icon. It will display the print jobs window. Click on the Printer tab and uncheck on the "Use printer Offline". Cancel all pending print jobs, close the printer window and try again to print.

Printing is blurred

Blurred is kind of a general statement. I'm thinking there are 3 possibilities.
1. Alignment
Run the printers Alignment routine. It's usually accessible through the control panel on the device. It may also be part of the software that is installed with the device.

2. Dirty head
Run the printers cleaning cycle. Its in the same place as the alignment rountines.

3. misfiring nozzles
Running the cleaning cycle several times might fix it, if not the printer may need to be serviced

Display does not light up

This is problem many of hp cp1700 printers. LCD display have manufacter issuse. After some time degrage material joins LCD with controler. You can partial fix this issue, but you must take to parts front panel and repair cable contact on both side of plastic flat wire
(one side plastic flat wire and LCD, two side plastic flat and LCD controler board ). Repair must be done with stress dull tip and hot temperature, may use tinfioil and soldering iron.
OR you can bay new part panel board with lcd aproximaly 150$.
OR you do not repair printer and use pc program that view display info form printer display on pc monitor. On Linux I use HPLIP Toolbox.

Zebra xi III Plus printing shadows and blurred text on labels. Initial printing was fine but all prints now have a shadow and blurred text.

Try adjusting your printhead. If that doesn't work you might need to replace.

Please contact me if you have any question or if you come across needing a printhead for your unit.

I carry all parts for that printer in stock .

Hp color laserjet 1600 copies have a 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.

HP Inkjet CP 1700 Inop

The digital readout on the CP1700 is a problem. I have replaced mine now 4 times at a cost of $90 each time, and I'm going to have to do it again or get the new 2800. Just wonder if the 2800 is going to have the same defect.
