I have a Color LaserJet 1600 that is only printing half of a page. The problem started today when I noticed the entire right side of the page was missing. I'm not sure where to begin to remedy the problem. Any advice is welcome!

This is likely caused by a bad cartridge. Your description fits what happens when a bad drum on a cartridge draws too much current and the power supply cannot energize the drum units on all colors. The most common color I have seen this error with is yellow, but it could be any of them. If you recently changed one cartridge, that is the likley suspect.

HP LaserJet 1600 When I print a page, the red comes out as as orange - sometimes only at the top but, today, on the left although the right was OK. There is plenty of ink in all the cartridges.


Hi there, Your laser unit is dirty which will cause your colors to be faint on some sides. This is normally thing and the Printer just needs to be serviced and the laser unit needs to be cleaned. So i would advise taking it to a Service Agent or Computer shop to have it cleaned.
Regards,

HI tech, I have this HP LJ1600 and I have this mark on the right hand side from top to bottom just as a roller mark the page. When I do a self test page there is a colour band on the right and it is split...


If the band is one particular color then it is quite possible that you have a bad toner cartridge of the color that matches the band. You can also try printing a test page from the secondary service menu. Access the menu as follows:

To enter the secondary service menu, use the following procedure:

1. Confirm that the device is in a Ready state.

2. Press the button (Select) to enter the main menu system.

3. Press the button (Left arrow) and the button (Cancel Job) simultaneously.

4. Press the button (Select) to confirm 2ndary Service.

5. Press the (Left arrow) button and button (Right arrow) to navigate to the secondary
service menu.

Find the option for test print.

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 %.

Smudge mark along entire right side of every page.


HP 1600 is quite a decent little printer, so you shouldn't be dissapointed - if it's working properly, which clearly it's not in this case.

It seems that you have 2 problems here.

Firstly it shouldn't click loudly, so you need to be talking to whoever you bought the printer from.

The smudging - is probably a dirty fuser.
There are laser printer cleaning sheets, that will work quite well, but ideally it needs a little bit of dismantling to get at the fuser to clean the two fuser rollers.

I've seen lots of these with dirty fusers, and a clean with IPA does the trick.

HP Color Laserjet 3500 printer - no black on left side of page


The folded paper solution for for me. Thanks to all for sharing!!!!

I had the same problem. No black or cyan on the left side of the pages. From this advice... I folded a stack of 4 pieces of paper in half and then half again. I took out the transfer unit and put the folded paper in the upper left corner and then put the transfer unit back in. WORKS BEAUTIFULLY! Thanks you all sooooo... much!
