The HP LaserJet 1600 bonds powder ink toner to paper by applying heat and pressure to the printed pages. The printer’s fuser is the source of the heat, which is why when printed pages first come out of the printer they are hot to the touch. For certain types of paper, the fuser’s temperature needs to be turned down, otherwise once the paper goes through the LaserJet 1600 it will be permanently curled or otherwise damaged.

Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Ensure the LaserJet 1600 and the attached computer are both turned on. Check the connecting cable to make sure it is properly plugged in.

  2. 2

    Click on the “Start” button or Windows icon at the bottom left corner of the computer’s screen. Click on “Programs” or “All Programs,” then “HP” and “HP Toolbox.”

  3. 3

    Click on “Device Settings” when the LaserJet 1600’s Toolbox window appears. In the “Settings” window, click on the link for the “Print Modes” page.

  4. 4

    Choose the type of paper you will be using in the LaserJet 1600, then click on the drop-down menu labelled “Fusing.” Click on “Less Fusing” and then the “Apply” button at the bottom of the page.
