HP laserjet 200 color MFP M276nw color misalignment, Calibration does not work

HP laserjet 200 color MFP M276nw

Hi I have this HP laserjet 200 color MFP M276nw with color misalignment,

I have genuine cartridges installed

 

I have followed the print quality troubleshooting steps indicating to do a color calibration.

I have done the color calibration 10 times and still my issue has not been resolved.

I also removed the power and waited 30 seconds to restart it and try printing again.

Still my issue has not been resolved.

 

Can any expert support me to resolve my issue?

@Josh_bd1994

 

Welcome to the HP Forums, this is a great location to get assistance! I read your post and see that you are getting print quality issues. I would like to help you resolve this issue. 

 

Did you check the toner for any damages?

 

Meanwhile, follow the below steps:

Perform a power reset

  1. Turn on the printer, if it is not already on.
  2. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
  3. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  4. Wait at least 30 seconds.
  5. Plug back the power cable straight to a wall outlet without any surge protector and printer.
  6. Turn on the printer.

Print a cleaning page

  1. From the Home screen, touch the Setup  button.

  2. Touch the Service menu.

  3. Touch the Cleaning Page button.

  4. Load plain letter or A4 paper when you are prompted.

  5. Touch the OK button to begin the cleaning process.

    The product prints the first side and then prompts you to remove the page from the output bin and reload it in Tray 1, keeping the same orientation. Wait until the process is complete. Discard the page that prints.

Inspect the toner cartridge for damage

  1. Remove the toner cartridge from the product, and verify that the sealing tape has been removed.

  2. Check the memory chip for damage.

  3. Examine the surface of the imaging drum on the bottom of the toner cartridge.

       CAUTION:

    Do not touch the roller (imaging drum) on the bottom of the cartridge. Fingerprints on the imaging drum can cause print-quality problems.

  4. If you see any scratches, fingerprints, or other damage on the imaging drum, replace the toner cartridge.

  5. If the imaging drum does not appear to be damaged, rock the toner cartridge gently several times and reinstall it. Print a few pages to see if the problem has resolved.

Cheers.

HP laserjet 200 color MFP M276nw color misalignment, Calibration does not work

Good day @sandytechy20

 

Firstly I'd like to thank you for replying on this forum for support,

 

I have performed all the steps you have recommended me to do.

None has resolved my issue.

 

I also have tested the priner with other cartridges, but still my problem persists.

This means that the issue is not caused by the cartridges.

 

Also, the printer runs the latest fw version: "20180205"

 

Please check the printout example attachedconfig pagejpg_Page1.jpgPrint example

 

The Misalignment only occurs on color printouts

We'll have to perform a reset on the Printer for this. I have sent you a private message, for more details that cannot be shared in a public post.
