    unless anyone knows of a service guy that covers Cornwall,UK

    It's PS41 and PS42 in the manual. I've never had an issue with them but others have. The picture is with the fuser removed to expose the sensors.

    Cheers
    i'll look tomorrow.

    anyway to test? looking at sensor info in service mode?

    ive followed field manual page 728 (18.3.33 Printer 4-color: incorrect color image registration)

    cleaned transfer belt (although not dirty)
    cleaned transfer roller on door
    fuser is brand new.

    but color reg is off. and its not equally off over the entire page. the Y axis is ok at the start, but completely out at the end.
    see attached pic

    I'd start by removing the transfer unit & cleaning the patch sensors & printhead glass might be all it needs.

    However if the transfer unit or K image unit are way over life you will get this issue & they will need to be replaced.

    Does it ever make a good color copy or print? The Fuser sensor usually only has a problem when running multiple pages in a run. If you open and close big front cover, machine
    runs a quick calibration. Then run a print job. Is registration ok?

    Agree, especially if issue appeared after Fuser change. Check both photo interrupter sensors(they are the same), actuators and spring.

    Re: C552 color registration issue

    Cheers guys

    cleaned transfer belt
    gave the PS41 &2 sensors under fuser a little wiggles and blow out lol
    cleaned print glass with that rod thing. although the bloody felt end got stuck in hole. managed to get it out though.
    cleaned paper dust bar

    not sure how to test the PS4 sensors? couldnt see them in the service senor monitor

    ran a pattern on A3 after, seems ok ish. hopefully it lasts...

    printed full color pages of C/Y/M/K, they are somewhat ok. but a little cloudy in places.


    really could do with a engineer that covers Cornwall, UK area.

    Re: C552 color registration issue


    P-22 occurred 63 times! color registration failure.


    IDS front and rear
    IDS shutter solenoid ****
    Front side board FSB
    and print control board PCBR
    Bad drums devs and transfer belt can not be excluded.
    Half-tones should show a problem there.

    Check you IDS levels under <state confirmation>.
    Whatever

    the issue is back. but im not sure where to start on your message.

    first off maybe i just clear all codes/stats?

    all colours are offset and blue is marking across further pages.

    ive found the IDC/registration sensors in the field manual, i'll try cleaning/re-seating them first.

    Re: C552 color registration issue

    Check the voltage levels under state confirmation under in service mode for the IDS sensors.

    Should be like 3.0 Max but more like 2.8. Both of them should be around the same value.
    The lower that value the less reflection comes from you belt.
    If IDS1 and IDS2 don't match close it shows a problem.

    Toner on those sensors is a common thing.
    Remove the belt open the shutter and clean the sensors.
    Check the shutter mechanism while you are at it works with a solenoid.
    Whatever
