Can not perform out of register colors correction

I have a new LBP-5050  color laser printer. I installed the driver (downloaded from the Canon website) for MacOSX 10.4.  After printing a few pages,suddenly the out-of-register color correction calibration can not perform. The cartridges are new and all of them full. I tried to re.ibstall the driver, but it does not help. Do you have any tips how can I solve this problem? I would appreciate your help very much. Regards Jonas

    this issue can be caused by low toner.
    The printer will not finish callibration if it is indicating toner low

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!)
