  1. I have a problem again on one of our printers (HP CLJ 1600). Magenta toner is not printing properly, I replaced with new orig hp cartridge but still unsolved. Red based colors turns into Yellow, printed text and images at the left side of the paper is not clear. I already cleaned density color sensor unit and ETB but same. Hope sum1 can help me now.

    TY and Happy Valentines <->

    Well then I'll advise to take the printer back to HP; I hope its still in warranty, because this doesn't seems to be an software issue to me.

    That truly sucks ..... well instead of using it as color laser you can perhaps continue using it as black/white laser printer.
