HP LaserJet 1600 Printer - Clean and Calibrate the Printer
Clean the printer
During the printing process, paper, toner and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer. Over time, this buildup can cause print-quality problems such as toner specks or smearing. This printer has a cleaning mode that can correct and prevent these types of problems.
Clean the paper path
The device features a special cleaning mode to clean the paper path.
NOTE: If you have access to HP Toolbox, HP recommends cleaning the paper path by using HP Toolbox.
Clean the fuser using HP Toolbox

Calibrate the printer
The printer automatically calibrates at various times. You can adjust the calibration settings by using the HP Toolbox.
Environmental differences or aging print cartridges might cause fluctuations in image density. The printer accounts for this with image stabilization control. The printer automatically calibrates at various times to maintain the highest level of print quality. You can also request a calibration by using the HP Toolbox.
The printer does not interrupt a print job to calibrate. It waits until the job is complete before calibrating or cleaning. While the printer is calibrating, it pauses printing for the time that is required to complete the calibration.
Calibrate the printer at the printer
Calibrations are performed at regular intervals. For best print quality, a calibration can be performed from the control panel using the following steps:
