Only the photographs and color text are giving me problems all of a sudden. The colors are shadowing each other and are not precisely aligned.

    Got ya. Thought you knew. First time at this. HP Color LaserJet 2605. The printer has calibrated several times. The blank print is perfect, but anything with color, both photos and colored text are not aligned. It is a two page newsletter. I did a sample print from the printer and the black text and shades are perfect again, but the photograph is nasty. Hope the additional info helps.

It would be useful to know what you are looking at??  We know that you know but we don't.
Little stuff like what kind of machine? Brand? Model? Are you looking at:
A printout? Use the maintenance utility for aligning new cartridges or printhead 
A monitor? If it's a CRT monitor, move your speakers away from it.

    You may have to 'trick' the printer so you can do this; open the housi9ng as if you wanted to replace cartirdges, then, while it is in the middle, turn it off by pulling the plug so that the carraige does not return to its hiding place.Move the carriage as needed to wipe down the rod that carries the carriage assembly, then, only with a lubricant such as 'sewing machine oil' (3-in-1) sparingly apply some to the rod.
    While you are poking around in there, use a good light and if you see a plastic band ~ 1/4 wide, running across the width of the printer (and threaded through the carriage), use a clean cloth or soft paper towel moistened with window cleaner, gently pinch the band with the towel and wipe it clean.


    This band has very fine vertical markings that the printer uses to locate the carriage where it needs to go.

When you are printing a photograph, the back is resultant of combination of RGB but when you print a latter of document it usages only the black ink. So since the black is properly printed when it's combining RGB that means any of the color is low on ink. Replacing the color cartridge will solve the problem for you.

OKI C5100 alignment issues, I think


FROM YOUR USEWR MANUAL>>>>>>>

In colour menu

AJUST REGISTRATION, press EXECUTE
Performs automatic colour registration
adjustment. Normally this is done on power
on and when the top cover is opened and
then closed. This process accurately aligns
the cyan, magenta and yellow images to the
black image.

Use oki drums and toners, clean led heads
