Simple solution is:
Replace the Black and Yellow Print Catridges. The print heads are mounted to the bottom of the catridges and these, depending on whther they're from HP or not. can have a hard time conducting electricity properly, and in turn.. spitting ink out properly.
Also happens often with aftermarket Catridges because HP puts chips on the catridge. be sure to put an HP catridge. Sometimes you get what you pay for :)

There isn't a good fix for this problem. You can try the following;
1. Plug Unit Directly into wall, not thru a powerstrip.
2. Reset the Printer, Unplug Power Supply, Wait 30 Secs. Re-connect. Turn Power Back On.
3. Open Case, Wait for Printheads to move to right. Take Out Offending Printhead. Clean Gold Contacts / Soak Print Nozzles in 1/8" Water, if dried out. shake printhead to loosen stuck nozzles (watch out for flying ink!!). DO NOT PUT PRINTHEAD BACK IN YET!! Close Cover. Wait for printer to say "XXX Printhead is missing" Re-Open Cover, Wait till printheads move to right, Re-Insert Printhead, Close Cover. Reset if Necessary.
4. BTW None of this worked for me. I'm gonna see if anyone I know has one of these printers and swap out parts to see if it is indeed the printhead(s).
5. According to other posts, HP Service will tell you to try all of the above, then when it doesn't work, they tell you your printer is defective. Someone else mentioned a bad firmware problem. If you're out of warranty, your screwed. Another HP Horror Story! Oh My! California wants to elect their old CEO. lol.
