Question about HP Black LaserJet PRO 200 Color Laser Printer M251nw, Wired Networking and Wirel
This issue began 3 days ago. I had an HP CP1525nw laserJet and it indicated the cyan cartridge was low. I changed the cartridge and resumed my printing project. The cyan color started ghosting images and had horizontal cyan lines through the area that was cyan. I have done a ton of searching and finally "through in the towel". I went and got a brand new HP m251nw laserjet and the same issue is still there. Also I have tried printing the image in multiple programs Photoshop CS5, CS4 and preview for mac any help?

Missing or incorrect color
You have changed the color settings manually. Return the color setting to Automatic. • Windows: On the Color tab of the printer driver, click Automatic. • Mac OS: In the Print dialog box, select the HP ColorSmart or HP Color Quality pop-up menu and then select the Manual option.
Your print media does not meet the specifications for this printer. For example, you are using coated, glossy, or photo paper. Use a different paper, such as a high-quality paper designed for laser printers. See the user guide for information about print-media specifications.
You are operating the printer in excessively humid or dry conditions. Verify that the printer environment is within humidity specifications. A print cartridge might be low on toner. Check the printer control panel, print a Supplies Status page, or view the embedded Web server (HP color LaserJet 2500 series printers only) to see supplies status. (If you are using a non-HP cartridge, none of these sources will provide information about a low or empty print cartridge.) If a cartridge is low on toner, replace the print cartridge.
Clean the sensors and perform a calibration.
The HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox is not supported for the Macintosh operating systems. 1 Make sure that the printer is turned on and in the Ready state. 2 Open the Toolbox. 3 On the Troubleshooting tab, click Cleaning Page and click Print. A page with a pattern prints from the printer. 4 At the printer, remove any media from tray 1 (multipurpose tray). 5 Remove the page that printed and load it face-down into tray 1 6 At the computer, click Clean.
Note For even better results, repeat this procedure several times.
The printer automatically performs a calibration when the imaging drum or a print cartridge is changed, and at set intervals that are determined by the total number of pages the printer has printed. For the HP Color LaserJet 2500 series printers, you can change the interval at which the printer performs automatic calibrations by using the embedded Web server.
To calibrate the printer manually Turn the printer off, wait one minute, and then turn the printer on again.
To calibrate the printer from the Toolbox The following procedure must be performed from the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or the HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox, which are only supported for Windows 98, NT 4.0 (HP Color LaserJet 2500 series printers with parallel connections only), Me, 2000, and XP.
Note The HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox is not supported for the Macintosh operatingsystems. 1 Open the Toolbox in one of these ways: • On the desktop, double-click the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox icon. • On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to HP Color LaserJet 1500 or HP Color LaserJet 2500, and select the HP Color LaserJet 1500 Series Toolbox or the HP Color LaserJet 2500 Series Toolbox. 2 On the Troubleshooting tab, click Diagnostic Tools (on the left side of the screen). 3 Click Calibrate Now.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: hp clj 5550 not printing cyan
Check the black cover on the pick up assembly under the cyan cartridge. If it is only a fraction too high cyan will not print. Make sure it is clipped in place correctly.
