Had the same problem a while ago.
In my case it was simply that the plastic tab had come away from the plastic strip you're supposed to pull out from from the cartridge before installing. Found the end of the plastic strip and pulled it out and this sorted the error.
An additional problem we had was alignment of the colours when printed. Magenta and black were misaligned by about 0.5mm after changing a cartridge. This was cured (after much frustrated cleaning/calibration) by switching the printer power off and on (couple of minutes to cool down).
Hope this helps.

I have a canon LBP5000 Laser Printer where the black is about 5mm out of alignment with the rest of the colours - also I get the dreaded out of register colours error Please Help

you have to do software alignment, go into the software that should have installed on your computer when you first got the pringer. You have to go through a series of prints and then choose which ones look best, it is rare for the alignment to be this far off.was the device dropped or exposed to high or low temps?

Hp photosmart C4180 all in one. I want to set black (greyscale) as default. I can't find where to do this. Can you help?


  1. Click start-->Control panel--> Printer & faxes.
  2. Right click on printer icon and click "Properties".
  3. You will find an option to select "print in greyscale" under one of the tabs.
  4. Else, if you dont find there, click "printing Preference" under general tab and check.

Can not perform out of register colors correction

I have a similar printer, canon LBP 5000, with the same problem.

I contacted Canon guys and explained them the problem. This is what they said:
this problem occurs in either of the 2 situations:
1. when your colors/toners have gone or nearing empty.
2. when you have REFILLED your cartridges.

Need to replace cartridge (which costs really tooo much).. its sad!

For me it was the first case, but, un-really-fortunately, I REFILLED the cartridges (this is al b4 contacting canon guys). And still the problem persisted (so now even the 2nd case).. After finding out that i will have to replace the cartridges.. i'm really confused whether i should do it,, or buy a new printer instead.! (since i've already spent and wasted quite a lot of amount in refilling the colors :( )

So, please DO NOT refill the cartridges if u god-forbid come across this problem ever. Go replace the cartridges. (unless n until someone else comes up with a solution atlast!)

Hp22605-colors out of register

Hey there. Witch colour is missregistered?
Could be a toner cartridge if the colour is not where it should be, or could be the laser/scaner assambley if the colour is not solid.
