Yellow toner will not print
If you let the yellow toner get to the point where the toner cartridge was totally empty, there is one thing you can try which may help. From the "menu", select "maintenance", then go to "clean developer" and choose the yellow. The machine will then churn for a few minutes. What happens is there is a tube that moves the toner from the toner cartridge down to the developer unit ( which is behind the imaging drum). If the toner was allowed to totally run out, there is an area of the tube which may have little or no toner in it. Each time you print, there is a spring auger within the tube that draws the toner to the developer. By running the "clean Developer" it turns the auger and re primes the tube.
If this does not fix the issue, and you have replaced the imaging unit, then the yellow developer is defective and would need to be replaced. This involves quite a bit of work and is not considered user replaceable.
