HP Color Laserjet: "Red" colour prints slightly lower than other colours.

Hi, I'm trying to print address labels using an HP Color Laserjet 2600n printer. The A4 page has two labels across and 6 down.

The top row is fine but on the bottom row, the "red" is printing slightly lower than every other colour. This problem graduates and the "gap" gets wider as you look down the rows. It's most apparent in an image on the address label which is a flag and the bottom row has a definitive white line where the shouldn't be one.

I've printed to standard white paper and to address label sheets and the problem is the same. I've just calibrated the printer using the printer menu but it has made no difference.

Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to fix it?
