My printer prints blurry color.

[ Edited ]



After replacing color toner cartridges with HP branded new cardridges ever print in color comes out blurry. It is if the color cartridges are no longer alined. Alreade tried to replace the cartridges, no solution.

When printing in black/white or greyscale the prints are perfect.

What can be done to solve the color issue ?

Model CP1525nw

Re: My printer prints blurry color.

HI judybyrne,


I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing blurred colored on your print outs. 


If you have the same printer as the original poster the link that -JohnB- provided in the post above yours, which I've reposted here.


If you don't have a LaserJet CP1525nw, could you please provide me with some further information?


1)            What model/product number is your printer?

2)            What operating system are you using (Windows, MAC OS X, etc)?

3)            What type of device are you printing from (computer, tablet, phone)?

Re: My printer prints blurry color.

I have an HP Laser Jet Pro 400 Color m451dn.


I recently changed the ink cartridges and ever since it has been printing slightly off.  The letters are shifted just slightly, so on a blue letter it's shifted slightly and has a pink halo behind it.  I've calibrated and cleaned and even restored default settings that messed up my IP address for it and everything.  Any ideas on what else to try.

Re: My printer prints blurry color.

I am sorry, but to get your issue more exposure I would suggest posting it in the commercial forums since this is a commercial printer. You can do this at

I hope this helps.
