Goes Nowhere, Does Nothing
I probably should ask before I just toss it...

So, about a year and a half ago (don't remember exactly when), I bought a color laser printer -- an HP Color LaserJet 2605dn, to be precise. I'd lusted after one for a long time, and finally the price of that model (which had all the features I wanted) dropped to the point where I could afford one.

Only one problem -- I never got it to work as well as I wanted it to. It seemed to have chronic color-alignment issues that the calibration tools could never quite fix. Eventually, I lost my patience with it and bought a Dell 3130cn instead. It's been sitting unused for months, and I'm finally to the point where I'm tired of looking at it.

Does anyone have a use for it? I'm literally giving it away to anyone who wants -- the only catch is that you have to come get it in Millis, MA. (I suppose if I'm already planning to visit you in the next week or two, I could be talked into delivering it, but you'd better ask really nicely. It's a heavy beast. :)

If not, it's getting exiled to the land of misfit printers real soon now.

I'll take it. I might have better luck with the color, since I've dealt with similar items before.

What was it doing in terms of failed color-alignment?

I wouldn't be able to pick it up soon though, probably at least a week, maybe a bit more.

Sold (so to speak). Taking a week or two is not a problem.

If I remember correctly -- it's been a while -- the magenta was failing to line up correctly with the other colors, a little worse at one end of the page than the other.

Ok. Might be fixable, might not be worth the effort. I'll see, I guess.

I'll be in contact when I work something out for when I might be able to do pickup.

I hope you will keep updating your content constantly as you have one dedicated reader here.
