    It seems to be consistent? I probably needs some sort of re-alignment or calibration. Do you know how to go about that on the C3220?

    Replaced transfer belt and cleaned rollers. Fixed the alignment issue but caused an issues with the colors. Canon has advised us to replace an electric board.

    Is the problem consistant? If the alignment is moving on multi print/copies it is mechanical, like a belt dragging and you will need a tech to fix the problem. Let me know please.

If there is a noise "thumping" along with the color misregistration, there is a broken gear in the ITB drive assembly. If there isn't a noise the easiest thing to try is is a full auto gradation adjustment in user mode. If that doesn't work, you can enter service mode * 28 * then copier>function>clear>DCON, highlight DCON, press ok and reboot machine.

Good Luck

With my experience, it's not the registration nor calibration problem, it's either transfer belt is bad or inside the transfer belt is dirty or dusty as well as transfer rollers. here is what I do first
take the transfer belt unit out of the machine, take transfer belt out from the unit, clean inside of transfer belt with damp cloth and rubbing alch. clean all rollers and reinstall.
What it is if the transfer belt and transfer rollers are dirty and dusty, it slips and make it like it's not align. I think most of time it fix the problem with my exp. if not replace new transfer belt

Problem with the Canon imageRUNNER C3200 Copier In printing colors are 1 mm apart from each to other

You need to clean the rollers in the "Internal transfer belt". I'd suggest you contact Canon service, because you could easily break the thin Transfer belt if you do it wrong. Temporary solution is to turn the machine off and then on, following a FULL color calibration.

I have recently bought HP 2025dn, Magenta cartridge is not aligned. I am printing on 90gsm normal paper... help!!

If you are referring to a CPR (color plane registration) problem, where the magenta color plane is not aligned with the other color planes, you might first try forcing a color calibration. This can be done through the control panel menus by selecting System Setup-

Hello, I have a problem with my c3200! looks like yellow, and color looks faded. The image I'm trying to print looks all faded. Any help would be great thank you for your time

Try running the gradient/color adjuster (do a full test). It's in Additional Functions screen.
The C3200 series is known for this and many other issues. Most of the customers that I met has since switched to a Xerox color machine that has much better results (Docucolor series for print shop/marketing type work, and the WorkCenter 7600 series for high end office work. Both same body design, different engine/system software)

Skewed printing

Most probably you have to do the Color Registration Settings and the Color Calibration.
The Color Registration will fix the fuzzy printing and the Color Calibration the way how the colors looks. The Color Calibration it is done automatically after each batch of 40 or 80 pages and if you need you can do a manual Color Calibration BUT THE COLOR REGISTRATION must be done manually.

Go to Menu->Others->Service->Color Registration and print a test chart. Will print a page and you have to read the alignment of some lines Cyan Magenta Yellow Black with some numbers. Check the Advanced user guide for details. Basically you have to read the number / letters of each color where 2 lines are matching. Then you can enter those numbers into the printer for each color.

If the Cyan only is off then will be easy ...
