I have put in new set of catridges in my HP 1600. The red color is fading and not giving good results. I need to know how can i fix this. Please!

After replacing the cartridges it's always a good idea to run a a calibration,
that step and a few others are covered on HP's Print Quality troubleshooting page.

Here it is for the 1600

Also one other thing you can try that they don't mention is,
using a clean lint-free rag you can try cleaning off the "Contacts" for each cartridge.

If you look at the cartridges you should see (usually) some small square or rectangular
pieces of metal and at the same location on the printer itself is some other pieces of
metal that touch those points when the cartridge is installed.
If there's any toner or debris on those contacts and the machine isn't able to get a solid
electrical charge to the cartridges it could also cause a problem.
(This doesn't ALWAYS help so I would focus more on the steps in their troubleshooting page)

Did this help you? Don't forget to leave me a positive review if so! Good luck. :)

I have an HP photosmart 8200 series printer. It

Try installing the printer as a LPT Port or USB Port connection. Do not allow it search for any printers.
You can change port access later.
This is how I install my HP4050N Network printer.
ALSO, Is your network connection working properly?

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

2 ways to scan from HP printers

First* try from "my computer" ... near the bottom of the page you should see "scanners" in there, try clicking that and follow prompts

Second* go to start/ programs/ HP/ HP Solution Center
all scanning choices should be on the left
