- For approx. 2 wks. readout was yellow cartridge needs replacing. Had never used anything but black so ignored and continued to use with no problem. Replaced the black about a week ago and have been able to fax and copy. Now, just recently message readout says "No cartridge - yellow" and instructions on opening cartridge door and replacement.
Cannot fax or copy now.

Please check your Printer setup. or options ( I am not familiar with this printer. what terms they use- I'm not sure) Ther will be options for Print in Color or Black. Make sure the radio button for COLOR is checked. This way, black and color both will print in the correct color. So leave it on color even when you want to print in Black. The black radio button is there for a different reason. Hope this will help you. luciana44
