Question about HP PSC 1610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

HP 1610 prints color blocks all over a black and white page.

When I print a black and white drawing or simple letter, little color blocks show up everywhere. I have tried cleaning, aligning and printing test pages without success. Help!

You are lucky you can print ANYTHING! My unit has NEVER worked (3 years) due to a hardware defect of HP. I downloaded patches, cleaned/replaced cartridges, etc.
Spoke to HP last nite-Was told printer was junk-they don't carry it or any parts to fix it anymore!! I was told to replace it!

Printer full of ink, but will pring pages either blank of with smeared ink.


Follow these steps to check the print settings for your print job.
  1. In the software program you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . The Print dialog box opens.
  2. Select your product, and then click Properties . The printer Properties dialog box opens.
  3. Click the Printing shortcuts tab.
  4. Under Printing shortcuts , click the type of job you are trying to print.
  5. Review the following options, and then make any necessary changes.
    • Paper size : Make sure that the selected option matches your paper size.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, select that option.
    • Print quality : If you are not satisfied with your printed page quality, or want more densely printed prints, increase the print quality. To print more quickly, or for lighter prints, decrease the print quality.
  6. Click the Features tab.
  7. Check the Print in Grayscale setting
    • If you are trying to print in color, select Color Options , and then make sure that Print in Grayscale is not selected.
    • If you are printing a black and white image, select Print in Grayscale to fix streaking in black areas.
  8. Click OK , and then click OK again to start the print job.
Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Open HP Solution Center , then click Settings , then Printer Toolbox .
Select the Services tab.
Click Print PQ (print quality) Diagnostic Page .

Make sure the printer is loaded with unused white paper.
Open HP Solution Center , then click Settings , then Printer Toolbox .
Select the Services tab, then click A- Click Align Printheads or
B- Click Clean Printheads .
C- Click Calibrate Linefeed .

If, after repeated printhead cleaning, the Print Quality Diagnostic page shows white lines across the color blocks in Test Pattern 2 (but no white lines in the gray blocks in Test Pattern 3), one or both of the printheads will have to be replaced. The Print Quality Diagnostic page shows which printhead should be replaced.

I have a HP PSC 1610 all-in-one printer. Can the colour cartridge be bypassed when it asks for replacement cartridge? I only print in black and white now 99% of the time.


No , we all only wish, this is the bane or all printer users. You cannot print without all in full & being OK. Also must use color sometimes else nozzles can clog up. Must clean, too.

My hp 1610 only prints letters in red. Downloaded


I suspect this is happening because your "Font" is set to Red. What you need to do, is when in the document, go to the Tool Bar and find & select the "Font" and change the color to Black. It is usually a little "Box" at the side of the name & size of the Font, you click in here and another little popup will appear showing colors, simply click on the Black color, and it is done, set.

I bought new color cartridges, but the printer only prints in black and white or grayscale. Why won't the color show up?


check the print settings by going to printing preferences and check if the grayscale or black and white is the one that is selected
change it to color
also make sure that the color cartridge is properly snapped inside.
try printing a test page and see if all colors come on the printed page

let me know if you need any further assistance

Can't print in color


Hi there!

Problem with your print settings.

Go to Control Panel > Printers and FAxes > Right Click on your printer and click Printing Preferences

Depending on your model, the preference page would show a drop down control or simply an option that says something like :

Print in : Black & White /Grayscale
or most models would say:

COLOR: [ ]BLACK [ x] COLOR

Now, set it to colored.

Hope this gives you an idea!

My hp psc 1610 all in one printer will not print any thing in bla


Go to your print driver, should be in the "printers and faxes" folder in XP. Right click on the driver and select properties from the drop down menu. Go to the Advanced Tab and select "printing defaults". Look for an option entitled "print all text in black", under the Advanced tab, in document options. See if that is disabled. Enable it if so and test.

Scanned Items or Copies all print in Solid Black


I assume that you mean color images are being produced in black and white. If that's the case, there's a document on the HP web site that shows you what to look for and provides solutions:

Color Image Prints in Black and White

Good luck.
