Question about HP PSC 1600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing color My HP PSC 1610 has always printed beautiful prints.  I use it a lot to make photo notecards (on reg. paper, not photo paper).  I just recently put new cartridges in and the colors are all off.  The yellow is more a bright orange, and when I try to pring in B&W, it comes out almost sepia or a dark blue. I'm using a hp95 cartridge and an hp99 cartridge.  Help! Thanks, Rachel

Hp psc 1610 all in one printer wont print

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

HP 1610 printer

It occurred to me when I was reading your post that photo paper has printing and non-printing sides. If the paper is loaded upside down, it's printing on the non-print side, which would result in what you're seeing. It's just a hunch, but you might want to consider it. has a web page that will walk you through the process of checking on this and other potential problems.

Checking image quality problems

Hope this helps. Good luck.
