Question about Dell 1600n All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Very faint copies even though there is a new toner cartridge.

I checked the fuzer bulb and the filament is intact. The copies are unreadable the printer is useless until I can fix this problem. Is there something else that I can check.
Thanks, Robert Rosenheimer

    I turned off the toner saving option didn't help, the copies were still very faint. The fuzer doesn't have many moving parts, could something on the circuit board be defective? Also what is the cost of a new fuser cartridge?

    Thanks NinaE, hopefully a new fuser will be the fix.

Normal 0 Hello.

From FixYa Support:

The Dell 1600n printer driver has a toner saver mode, which can contribute to light print.

To turn Toner Save Mode off, (Windows XP) perform the following steps:


  1. Click the Start button, click Settings, and then click Printer and Faxes.
    The Printers and Faxes window appears.
  2. Right-click Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn, and left-click Printing Preferences.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Printing Preferences window appears.
  3. Click the Advanced button.
    The Dell Laser MFP 1600n, 1815dn Advanced Options window appears.
  4. Click to highlight Toner Save.
  5. Click the drop-down list and change it to Off and click OK.
  6. Click OK.

If still a problem, you probably have a bad fuser. The fuser part for dell 1600N is - N5796 110V. To replace, unplug the machine and remove the rear lower cover. Remove four screws and the largest rear cover. The fuser is in view. Remove four more screws and two plugs and remove the fuser. To replace, reverse the procedure.

Hope this helps.

    The cost of a new fuser is around $100 (USD) or so.

Copies are faded and unreadable when printed or copied at the machine. The toner percentage is showing 25-0% but the machine is not giving a "change toner" message.


Remove the toner cartridge and tap it sharply with one hand whilst holding it with the other. Turn 90 degrees and do it again, repeat until the cartridge is back to being the correct way up.

This will often give you another hundred copies with a cartridge that 'appears' to be empty.

If that doesn't work, you will need to replace the toner,, if that doesn't work, you need a technician or a new machine.

I have a Konica Minolta Magicolor 1600w which has not been very reliable. After a year I had to replace the fuzer. When the toner ran out, I decided to buy another one since it's cheaper than buying...


the second printer who made that? you bought a new 1600w?? and no you can not use the new cartridge in the old. go out buy new OEM cartridges for the printer the first one. on the new printer. did you clean the rollers did you ensure the printer setting for the media (paper) was the same as on the computer. was paper properly installed landscape versa porait.

Our school office Ricoh Aficio 1013 Copier has had multiple toner replacements and now does not make a full black copy but about half the copied page is faint or less dark. Is this a fuser problem? Also...


The partial faint copy in your case is most likely toner on the laser optics. It is NOT the fuser.
Since you are indicating a toner dusting or spillage issue into the bottom or perhaps paper tray area then this toner is also most likely on the laser optics. This blocks a portion of the laser light and results in a faded or sometimes even blank portion of the copies. Dis-assembly of a portion of the machine is going to be required to clean the laser.
It is located between the toner cartridge and the Drum/PCU unit at the bottom of the machine. So if you open the front door where the toner cartridge comes out. The laser strip glass would be below and to the right of there the toner is. Some of these still have a small metal cover/clip that you can remove and then slide the laser strip glass out and clean it then re-install.
Hope this helps. If this makes no sense or does not help then it might be a good idea to call a service company and have the machine cleaned.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

When printing, half the page is very faint and almost unreadable. The rest is fine.


This can be a bad toner cartridge or a bad fuser. Replacing the toner is an easy test, but the fuser if you need it will be expensive.

OfficeJet G85 Makes Unreadable Copies


Usually, it's the print cartridge. I recently installed a new black cartridge on a 6110 printer and it, too, was very faint in printing. It turned out to be "dried up", even though it was a new cartridge in a sealed bag (but purchased in 2005).

Vertical Stripes on printed Page, Shaken Toner, Relatively new Belt (Green thing), cleaned the fuzer wire, cleaned the cleaner roller, has oil.


Depending on the type and model of your printer this could be several things mostly related to the cartridge or drum if you have a separate toner/drum system.. Since you have stated you have shaken the toner, I am assuming you have a laser printer. New belt, has me confused. Green thing leads me to think you are talking about the drum. If so, did you purchase a new toner cartridge or new drum cartridge?

Several components inside the toner or drum cartridge will cause vertical streaks. It depends on where these streaks are occurring and how wide the streaks are. We call these repetitive defects and they can be measured to determine which part is at fault.

Also, if this is a multi-unit machine (print/copy/fax/scan) Check the platen glass or ADf feed unit for white out. That has been a major culprit of vertical streaks on the page.

More specifics about the model of machine and cartridges being used would be helpful in trying to solve this problem for you.

Lines on copies


There is no model number or brand mentioned, but it may need a new drum kit. Also, sometimes the fuzer module is dirty.
