I have a hp laserjet 1600. We replaces all the cartridges and now I am getting shadow printing on the page please help what am I to do?


Did you replace cartridges with OEM HP cartridges or remanufactured/ no name cartridges? The failure rate for remanufactured color cartridges is terrible and it is likely that you have a bad cartridge.

HP color laserjet 1600 wonte printe new toner color.


The supply status report is based on what the kill chip is reporting to the printer. If that particular color is not printing then it is likely that current is not flowing though a particular component in the cartridge. I would return the cartridge and get a replacement.

I have installed new hp cartridges in my laserjet 1600 but the red is printing as yellow


Sounds like your magenta is not working. Have you tried to print something with just magenta?
Also try doing a cleaning with the utility found in your printer control panel

Red doesn't print


This is a common problem with ALL of the variants of this printer that have had either a lot of pages printed, or particularly had a few leaky cartridges in them.

The problem here is not with the toner cartridge, (you'll get this with ANY cartridge you use), and your magenta cartridge will work fine in another printer (which was working properly.


The problem is dirty lenses/mirrors in the laser unit. It's quite an involve job to get to the laser unit, and even when you do get it out, you need to be extra careful when you dismantle it to clean it, otherwise you'll either scratch a surface silvered mirror, or disturb the alignment of some component.

Safest bet, if you are not sure of your mechanical abilities, is to replace the whole laser unit, or go for an exchange reconditioned printer.

HP 1600 color laser printer--colors are out of sync


Check the following information please.

General print quality issues

Solving issues with color documents This section describes issues that can occur when you print in color. Color document issues Problem Cause Solution Only black is printing when the document should be printing in color.

c00659983.gif Color mode is not selected in your program or printer driver. Select color mode instead of grayscale mode. The correct printer driver might not be selected in the program. Select the correct printer driver. The device might not be correctly configured. Print a Configuration page.

One or more colors are not printing, or are inaccurate.

c00659984.gif Sealing tape might be on the print cartridges. Verify that the sealing tape has been completely removed from the print cartridges. The media might not meet HP specifications. Use a different paper, such as high-quality paper that is intended for color laser printers. The device might be operating in excessively humid conditions. Verify that the device environment is within humidity specifications. One or more print cartridges might be low. If you are using non-HP print cartridges, no messages appear on the device control panel or in the HP Toolbox. Replace any low print cartridges. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. A color is printing inconsistently after you load a new print cartridge.

c00659985.gif Another print cartridge might be low. If you are using a non-HP print cartridge, it might be low or empty but you will receive no indication. Remove the print cartridge for the color that is printing inconsistently and reinstall it. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. The colors on the printed page do not match the colors as they appear on the screen.

c00659986.gif The colors on your computer monitor might differ from the device output. Select Screen Match in the Color tab of the printer driver. If extremely light colors or extremely dark colors on screen are not printing, your software program might interpret extremely light colors as white or extremely dark colors as black. If possible, avoid using extremely light or extremely dark colors. The media might not meet HP specifications. Use a different paper, such as high-quality paper that is intended for color laser printers. The finish on the printed color page is inconsistent.

c00659987.gif The media might be too rough. Use a smooth paper or print media, such as a high-quality paper that is made for color laser printers. Generally, smoother media produces better results. Repetitive image defect ruler Use a repetitive image defect ruler to measure occurrences of repetitive image defects to help solve image quality problems. Place the ruler next to the first occurrence of the defect on the page. Find the distance between identical defects and see the Repetitive image defects table to identify the component that is causing the defect.

Yellow cartridge says low after printing 200 pages for hp laserjet 1600


200 is not much, but possible if you print a lot of pictures at paper size. Normally when a HP 1600 starts notifying about low toner, you still have about 20 %.

HP LaserJet 1600 printing 2 lines on paper, Uneven but straight.


If the line is one specific color, then change the corresponding toner cartridge. (You may be able to see the line on the drum in the toner cartridge.) If the line is a mix of colors, then it is probably either the transfer belt or the fuser. In either case, you could replace the whole printer for about the same cost as repair.
