I had the alignment problem as well, was driving me nuts. I narrowed it down to just the red cartridge. I took it out, took it apart (intro cartridge) and clean it best I could. Put it back in, did the NVRAM reset and 3 calibrations - still no dice. The red was still printing a tiny bit below everything else.
Decided to just use the printer for black and white. Went to set that and noticed the paper page type was set to 'unspecified'. I set it to 'Plain' and printed. Now it's printing normally, the alignment problem vanished...
Hope that helps someone

I have the media type set to plain. While the red is the most obvious colour that is out of whack, it's not necessarily the only one. Depending on your material, the other colours might show up as off. Yellow is harder to spot than cyan or magenta but I had a problem with yellow too.

Perform an NVRAM initialization on the HP Color LaserJet CP1210 and CP1215 Series printer
1. Turn the product off.
2. Press and hold the Resume button.
3. Turn the product on, and continue holding the Resume button for at least 10 seconds, but not longer than 20 seconds. The Attention light will be lit.
4. Release the Resume button.
NOTE: If the Attention and either the Paper out light or the Ready light are lit, restart the
The Attention, Ready, and Resume lights cycle from front to back until the process is complete.
The product then enters the Ready state.
