I have an HP LaserJet 400 pro colour and black prints fine but colour prints are blurred as if out of calibration. Have cleaned printer, tried calibrating and replaced toners any other suggestions?
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
To be sure, have you tried printing from multiple programs to rule out a program as the cause of the issue?
Please let me know.

ok, to check, did you do the cleaning as per below? If not can you please.
Press MENU until Print quality menu appears.
Press ITEM until Create cleaning page appears.
Press SELECT to create the cleaning page.
Follow the instructions on the cleaning page to complete the cleaning process
Let me know the results please

Yes have tried that
Your only option left will then be to use a maintenance kit on the printer which will clean it up which will replace the fuser unit.
Once thing though is if the printer is 4-5 years old, I would advise against this as the power supply will usually fail around this time, so you may be exchanging one problem for another. Plus for a bit extra (the kits go for around 150, you can get a replacement printer here)
