Question about HP Business InkJet 2800 Printer
I keep getting an error message that the cyan, magenta, and yellow printheads need to be replaced. I replaced these, but still keep getting the message. The message goes away when I open and close the ink cartridge cover and allows one print job, but the message returns afterward. I've cleaned aligned the printheads.
SOURCE: Magenta printing as yellow
Well, first off, are the alignment, and nozzle check sheets looking good? If not, then work on that. If so, then we have a problem. Try creating a test sheet in Word. Make red, yellow blue & black text and see if anything else prints wrong. Get back to me!

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

SOURCE: printing yellow for black
Can you confirm that you are using a CIS or non-HP cartridges with this printer?
It sounds a lot like the printhead has reached a clogging point where sediment has built up in the black portion and loosens enough to printer a few lines before it re-asserts itself again.
Based on my experience of this printer, if you're using a non-HP delivery system for ink then you should consider replacing the black ink with a dyebase alternative instead of pigment.. Replacing the Black/Yellow printhead and running a number of test prints to purge the pigment ink in the printhead should then result in a clean and more reliable printout in future.
One other vector for problems is the cleaning area and I've found that this can become soiled with excess ink causing cross contamination within the inks of one printhead. As yet I've not found a reliable solution to counter this sort of issue.
Hope this gives some clues and hopefully some ideas of a fix.
