Question about HP LaserJet 1600 Printer
1) First, clean the elctrical contact wires in the cartridge bays with alcohol on a Q-tip.
2) Make sure all cartridges are seating completely.
3) Open the front door. Check the wide, black transfer belt (ETB). See if there are uneven wear signs, lines on the belt-side where the colors are faded on the page. If it looks hazey, you can use 95%+ isopropyl and a lint-free cloth to clean the residue off.
4) Remove the ETB and reseat it (may not be easy on this model).
5) Make sure you've tried original hp cartridges -- not only compatibles or refills.
6) If all the above fails, you will need a new ETB. If so, look online by model number "CLJ 1600, ETB".
You may find a refurished on a lot cheaper than new. However, this is a user-consumable component and must be replaced when they wear out.
