Question about HP Photosmart D7160 InkJet Printer
SOURCE: Display says I am out of yellow,
Hi, since you've already replace the yellow ink cartridge for several times and its not recognize. Your printer might have a defective printhead. You may take your printer to the nearest HP service center in your area so that they can look on your printer further.

Did you check to make sure there is nothing covering the cartridge? I know that sounds dumb but that is what happened to me-I had mine refilled and it would not work and when I took it back in they said well-you just take this off here-it was a tiny piece of tape that was almost invisible!

Not a cleanable type head, filiment gets burnt, when ink is not around it when printing is done. Ie dodgy ink blocks lines or has air in it and has permanently stuffed the print head, fix on brothers is replace head, cost excessive.,..time for the bin and the newfound wisdom that inks aint just inks.
Ink empy or no inks is read in ink well compartment via a black flag in ink cartridge that must be up and floating as not to obstuct photocell in well area.. check the rectangler bump in rear middle of cartridge. All cartridges must have flags up ie not empty, seeing ink does not indicate a cartridge with ink, a little is always left to prevent air entering system, hence machine calling out no innk cartridge to prevent damage...

Is this a refillable cartridge you're using or a genuine HP OEM...
If it's a CIS, refillable or some kind of cartridge which is not made by HP then chances are the ink nozzle has failed and allowed the yellow ink to leak everywhere...
There are a lot of problems with these 3rd party cartridges and I would never recommend using anything other than a refilled HP cartridge or a genuine one.
Hope that helps.
