Suddenly, when I print, I am getting a very limited spectrum of colors. I am not getting any yellow, green, orange, etc. only shades of blue and red. I have installed new cartridges and the problem persists. Any ideas?
Buy a new printer. I am having the same issue. I have cleaned the ink and the cartridges are pretty new. Deskjet 895Cse is an older model and they are relatively cheap to buy now a days. I will be looking into a different orinter this time though.

It sounds like one of the colors is not printing correctly. I would suggest , opening your hp solutions center programs and under tools you will find an option to clean the print heads. Follow the procedure to cleans the print heads, after cleaning open control panel on the computer and depending on the operating system click on "printers" (XP) or "devices and printers"(vista win7) right click on your printer( hit your right mouse button) select " printer properties" click on print test page. This page will print out showing each of the colors separately. You should see black, blue, pink and yellow. If one of these colors is missing or muted you will now which color is cratinging the issue. And at that time I would try changing the corresponding ink cartridge. Hopefully the print head cleaning will resolve your issue
It seems your yellow color is not function correctly. Need to check yellow color feed and its linkage to deliver ink to your paper.
Looks like it almost clog up that cause very light color in your paper.
Again please check completely your color feeds.
Your yellow cartridge is probably not working as your photos suggest. Remove and reinsert the yellow cartridge. Try printing only yellow color. Your printer has a separate head for printing; the nozzle for yellow ink might be clogged. Try running a head cleaning routine from your printer software.
that is because it actualy uses black to make some of the colors. Color ink cartridge does not contain the full spectrum of colors. Printer uses black,red,yellow and blue and mixes these to make all other colors.
Press Green Tick, Right, -> System Setup -> Right, Right, -> Print Quality, Right -> Replace Supplies.
Change from stop at out, to override at out.
It'll let you print, and you'll get loads more out of your toner before the pages start to fade.
I was having a similar problem-- what was happening was the print cartridge head seemed to be letting the colors leak into each other. (the science behind this is beyond me!)-- I noticed that instead of being cyan/magenta/yellow, my yellow cartridge had actually turned green, magenta was picking up blue and was turning purple, etc etc. I ended up replacing the printer's printhead and all the color cartridges and then it worked. You can order printheads online. Not sure if this fixes the original reason why they got all mixed up in the first place-- if the printer will continue to allow the print head to leak the colors into each other-- but hopefully that's a fixit!
