Print quality issue

HP Recommended

I print small details and i just can't seem to get things to look right, it looks like the different toners are printing seperate from each other.

Is there something i need to do to get things looking sharper and better, you can hopefully see from the picture attached what i mean.

Hard to tell exactly from the sample you posted but it looks like you may have a registration problem, whereby the colors do not align with the black. These printers work by using the black as the reference standard and they align the other colors to it. If you print the supplies status page that will become very obvious as the color indicator does not fit in the black boxes. You can try performing several full calibrations to try and get the colors to align but you are probably best to perform a factory reset first.
