This is a common problem with ALL of the variants of this printer that have had either a lot of pages printed, or particularly had a few leaky cartridges in them.

The problem here is not with the toner cartridge, (you'll get this with ANY cartridge you use), and your magenta cartridge will work fine in another printer (which was working properly.


The problem is dirty lenses/mirrors in the laser unit. It's quite an involve job to get to the laser unit, and even when you do get it out, you need to be extra careful when you dismantle it to clean it, otherwise you'll either scratch a surface silvered mirror, or disturb the alignment of some component.

Safest bet, if you are not sure of your mechanical abilities, is to replace the whole laser unit, or go for an exchange reconditioned printer.

HP LaserJet 1600 When I print a page, the red comes out as as orange - sometimes only at the top but, today, on the left although the right was OK. There is plenty of ink in all the cartridges.


Hi there, Your laser unit is dirty which will cause your colors to be faint on some sides. This is normally thing and the Printer just needs to be serviced and the laser unit needs to be cleaned. So i would advise taking it to a Service Agent or Computer shop to have it cleaned.

I have installed new hp cartridges in my laserjet 1600 but the red is printing as yellow


Sounds like your magenta is not working. Have you tried to print something with just magenta?
Also try doing a cleaning with the utility found in your printer control panel

The red color is very faded and at best looks to be faded orange. The print cartridge has been replaced with a new one. I only use HP supplies.


as i said early: Your problem have only one solution - open laser/scaner Assembly carefully and clean all mirrors inside whit dry cloth. Dirty mirrors is the most frequently problem for 1600/2600 series. Comments: Oct 06, 2009 - NO, never use cotton ear buds, sometimes they landed some fibers to the mirrors and you will get bad image :)

Red colour toner replaced Cartridge with a new onebut still no print coreect. Replaced the Yellow colour toner Cartridge with a new one but printing is not clear.


this problem regards the head of the catridge. u have to do clean due to dust it may happenlike that. u clean inside with the cotton cloth on the print head and refix the all color catridges. when u remove ur catridge u have to close all the sides due to avoiding dry.
the second reason when u purchase ur catridges, check whether the catridges are valid date.
