When I send a print job to the printer the first page comes out perfect but the pages following the first comes out with a color seperation. It has not told me to replace the imaging units so I don't know if it is them or not. I don't want to replace the imaging units if that is not the cause of the problem. Please help.

Yellow print OK? No? try print with another yellow toner cartridge (Q6002A).
Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.
Follow these steps to change print settings, and then print in Mac OS X 10.6.
Step one: Select your product
In the program from which you want to print, click File , and then click Print .
Figure 11: Click File, and then click Print
Select your product from the Printer: drop-down list.
Step two: Change print settings
Type the number of copies to print in the Copies text box.
If you want to print multiple copies, select the Collated check box to print the pages of each copy in order.
Select the pages of the print job that you want to print. To print all pages, select All. To print a specific range of pages only, type the page number that begins the page range in the From text box. Then, type the page number that ends the page range in the To text box.
Select the size and type of paper loaded in the product from the Paper Size drop-down list.
Select the orientation for your print job. To print in portrait orientation, click the icon on the left. To print in landscape orientation, click the icon on the right.
Step three: Change the paper type and quality settings
After the Orientation section, click the drop-down, and then select Paper Type/Quality .
This drop-down usually defaults to the program specific drop-down. In this example, the drop-down is the TextEdit drop-down.
Figure 12: Select Paper Type/Quality
Adjust the Paper Type setting to match the paper loaded in the product.
Adjust the Quality setting to change the print quality of the printed page.
Select Print Borderless to print photos without a white border.
To change the color profile or to turn on Photo Fix, click the arrow next to Color Options to display the Color Options menu.
Figure 13: Color Options menu1 - Paper Type/Quality menu options2 - Color Options menu (only available if you click Color Options)
Step five: Print the print job
After all the settings match the needs of the print job, click Print on the Print window to print the document or print job.
I would bet you have it setup to print a seperator page between jobs. On your printer properties click on the advanced tab and then the seperator button, make sure it is cleared or not selected. Also make sure the program you are printing from doesn't insert a seperator page.
There are a few other things that can cause this. Such as a word processor having a page break or new page command before the text. These are hidden so you don;t see them but you get a blank then the text.
And once in a while it may be the driver isn't quite the correct one. Make sure it is current and the one for your model. On one printer the driver that behaved was the old original one but none of the newer ones downloaded from the company.
Anyway that has been what I have run across that will cause this.
Instead of trying to change or find a "setting", the fastest resolution is to uninstall and reinstall the Printer, If not sure how, click start, click control panel, on the left of the window if you see switch to classic view, click there, IF XP, click Add/Remove Programs, if VISTA, click programs and features, remove all entries and reinsert install disk and repeat setup
"Separator page" or "cover page" options could be enabled. The easiest way to find this option is to print a menu map from your machine. These are managed from the configuration page on the printer display
Your printing from a terminal application, no fix...the terminal apps often send a (page break/ carriage return) at the end of jobs to make sure the page is printed and not held in queue.
Check your settings in Office and print setup window - Word, Excel, etc. all have a "Seperator Page" and "Cover Page" options as well.
Have you checked that you are sending the print job using the correct paper tray on the printer?
Check the properties of the printer to ensure you are. Check also that the printer is OK by running a test print from the printer and not through the PC.
If I remember it's hold the green button for around 7-10 seconds, whilst powering on.
