HP Color Laser Jet 1600 Problem

My laser printer leaves a light black cloudiness over the printed page. If I stop the page before the fuser it is not there, it is only there after it goes through the fuser.

Re: HP Color Laser Jet 1600 Problem

I solved this by doing the following:
- ran the Clean ETB function from the engineering menu - press the [tick] button, then press the [left arrow] and [stop] buttons at the same time
- did this again!
- printed a cleaning page
- replaced the black cartridge (refurbished)

Seems to be OK

Re: HP Color Laser Jet 1600 Problem

We have a friend who has gone into business, refurbishing toner.....
I should have learned my lesson many years ago, and let friends be friends and business be business.......
I had great copies until I loaded this refurbished cartridge.

Lesson learned.

Re: HP Color Laser Jet 1600 Problem

If you are sure that saw the print image on the paper when you stopped it before the fuser (ie must be stop pre fuser but after image to verify fuser fault.) then it will need fuser assem replace

There is a fuser cleaning page that can be done on these i think not sure where, but if above is true then here is a link to a..Fuser Ass'y, 110V, Color LJ 1600/2600n part no. RM1-1820-000 ..note there is a 240 volt one too but thats for countries like mine that use 240v supply, you in US I beleive use 110V

otherwise it is the black cartridge, but fault would be seen "pre fuser/After image" if that was the case.

Hp color laser jet 1600

If you can rub off the colors easily with your finger then it is the fuser wire. Maybe the high voltage isn't enough to pull the toner to the drum. It's not something you can fix. Needs to go into a repair shop.

My boss want to replace the black ink cartridge for one that prints color. Can this be done with the HP 12-a cartridges? HP Laser jet 1022

Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.

So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)

I would recommend looking at an entry level color laser printer from hp, such as the CP2025 ( if you are looking into purchasing a color laserjet.

Hope this helps

How do I clean the rollers on my laser jet printer, it prints with a long black strip in the middle of the page. Hp laser jet 1320

Most likely the heat roller is breaking down in the fuser. The fuser must be replaced. But before going that far, replace the toner cartridge, as it may have a bad cleaning blade. 85% of all print quality defects are cartridge related. This particular model of machine has a very brittle heat roller that more often than not wears out prematurely. This is true across the board for all of the newer HP low end laser printers unfortunately.

Smudge mark along entire right side of every page.

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.
