I have two HP 2500 printers. Both of them print black perfectly. One of them prints yellow but only very faintly, the other not at all (at least not that I can see). Neither of them print cyan or magenta.
I've ruled out the toner cartridges, and I've tried different settings (and resetting to defaults) to see if there would be any effect, but no. They both claim the cartridges to have plenty of toner, although I have tried new toner cartridges also.
What problem might there be that affects only color (and not completely affect yellow in one case) but that does not involve the toner cartridges?

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.
Print cartridges might be improperly installed. Remove the print cartridge for the color that is
printing inconsistently and reinstall it.
im sure you tried this already, but thats from the manual.
also check your settings in the computer verify greyscale is not selected.

Hello, this is Harry from www.BusinessSpread.co.uk.
We had the exact same problem when printing, we used 3 different 78 colour ink cartages and they all said 100% full but did not work. We then had a look at the dates on the box and they were all expired so when buying ink from anywhere even PC world or Curry’s always look at the expiry date.
Today I went to PC world and purchased a new 78 ink which said expires July 2011 and it works perfectly fine.
