Re: No yellow printing from my color cartridges
The nozzles that the yellow ink flows thru are clogged. Try the print head cleaning utility. Right click on the printer, select PROPERTIES, select the MAINTENANCE TAB and press the PRINTHEAD CLEANING button. If that doesnt work, turn off printer, open front cover and move the ink carriage toward the center. You should see a small rectangular cotton sponge pad thats covered with old inks. Put several drops of Windex on it so that its nicely soaked and return ink carriage. Turn on printer and run the print head cleaning utility again. Then let it sit overnight. The next day, try printing a test page.

1. Make sure the color cartridges are installed correctly. 2. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. There should be a date on the sticker on them. 3. Make sure that the cartridges are clean. Sometimes the ink can build up on the cartridges and stop ink from coming out. 4. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes. Find your printer and right click, then press Printing Preferences. In the options there make sure that color is selected.
if your ink is more than 2 months old and if you have not printed anything for more than 2 weeks, that would cause you issue.. you can try doing some maintenance like cleaning the cartridge or a print head test..
I have similar problem. Print head won't print, then I clean with alcohol, and get rid of old ink inside. But then head seems to just shut down. I have several print heads and printers that have plenty of ink, but head won't work. I refuse to think the print head will break so easily. I used my BJC 85 for YEARS with no problem whatsoever, and suddenly, since last winter, I have 4 printers that have stopped printing.
I usually end up just buying another used printer on ebay until that one stops printing.
The Canon i850 uses cartridges of type BCI-3. according to Canon, the color cartridges are compatible to: BJC-3000 Series, BJC 6000, i450, i550, i850 Series, MultiPASS F30, F50, F60, F80, MP 700 and MP 730, S400, S450, S500, S520, S530D, S600, S630, S630 Network and S750. The black one will work in a few more models.

ProductDescription for Canon BJC 620
(From the Manufacturer, Canon)
Simply a piece of printing marvel, with high definition printing,
superior ink technology, innovative waste-free ink system and
user-friendly Windows printing system. The BJC-620, simply a must buy
for those who seriously considers printing in superior, high quality
color. It comes with an Internet kit.
From what I can tell the 6 orange lights indicate a print head failure. Why the print head has failed is another question maybe too old (I've read somewhere that they only operate for a fixed amount of time), maybe printed enough pages (somewhere else indicated that they only print a fixed number of pages). The solution is to replace the printhead (not just the ink tanks).
There is no way to know which print head needs replacing, so unless you have a spare one you will just have to choose which to change, and if you get it wrong try the other one. It appears to be an expensive way of solving the problem (but I have just found it cheaper to buy a print head which comes with 3 tanks than to buy 3 separate tanks!).
You can purchase Canon cartridges directly from Canon here. The BC-10 is a cartridge that prints with black ink only. The BCI-10 is the replacement ink tank for this cartridge (a new cartridge comes complete with an ink tank). The BC-11e is a cartridge that prints both black and color, and has two ink tanks, the BCI-11 black and BCI-11 color. A new BC-11e cartridge comes complete with two new ink tanks.
I had this problem too. It turned out there was old dry ink in there clogging up the printerhead and it was fixed after I ran the cleaning programme several times. However I can't for the lifeof me remember how to do that now. I know I found it online but it has since vanished. Maybe check your manual?
