The problem is that the printer insist that the yellow color is near empty but i refill it twice. first i refill it and then i bought a new cartridge.
My sister also has the same problem with the same printer.
PS. i try cleaning the color sensors with a soft cotton but the problem keep on displaying and the colors are not so clear than before.

Re: Near empty yellow
Do print until the message EMPTY (Printer stopps printing).
DO NOT refill or change cart when message is shown: NEAR EMPTY!
You fool the printers logic. Machine counts down the rest of the ink in the cart. When you refill at that moment the counter is disoriented!
To clear the counter:
Unplug powercord. Take carts out. Wait 3 min. Plug in power. Machine demands carts. Do use carts at full level (refill before you put them in). Works normal afterwards.

The printer might be out of one of the colors of toner. Most color laser printers will revert to black and white when either the cyan, magenta, or yellow toners run out. Check to see if any are empty or near empty. Also check the settings on the printer and your computer to make sure that it is set to print in color.
Probably one of the red cartridges is empty or near empty or possibly the yellow - it will miss whatever color is low or empty or substitute the next closest shade using the remaining colors if one is out.
You need to have a black and a color cartridge installed to use your printer. That doesn't mean the color cartridge has to be full. You can have an empty color cartridge in the printer and it will work as long as the electronics are good on it so the printer can recognize it's there. You cannot refill these cartridges yourself. Your printer remembers what cartridges have been in it so that it can reject refills (it sees the same serial number twice and catches you trying to not give Canon their money). You can use refills, but you need to get them from a refiller with a high turnover of cartridges so you don't get the same serial number twice. I recommend Cartridge World stores as they have high quality refills with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
I've refilled cartridges twice so far. The first time, the black was completely empty and the color was nearly empty. The printer accepted the color refill and not the black. The second time, I refilled both cartridges before they completely ran dry and both were accepted by the printer. The gauges don't register the ink, but it prints just fine. I just monitor the levels through the print quality. A friend with the same printer has told me that she only get 2 - 3 refills before the cartridge has to be reset, and that is a tricky process, but can be done.
unplug maqchine from power. take all carts out. wait 5 minutes. connect machine to power. insert carts as demanded. give the right answer if machine asks if the carts are changed. machine will do some cleaning.
do you use generic ink? in that case you might have clogged the printhead with wrong ink. The ph cant be cleaned anymore.
nevertheless try this (carts should be nearly full!): press menue then start mono (blue copy) then fourtimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4. Machine will display init_all. press start mono. machine will refill tubes and ph with fresh ink and do some cleaning. after that press 7 then 6 then 3 and start mono. machine will do a powerpurge. press zero then 9 to do a quality test print. If it cant do the job leave maintenance by pressing 9 then 9. do the test print manually by pressing ink etc.
If you still do not see any colors the ph is clogged and cant be fixed anymore. It has to be replaced.
