Try cleaning those contact points on the cartidges(looks like gold dots). You can use nails polish remover or surgical spirits. If it's still not working then you should take it to yur nearest dealer for service or repair.
You can dab the bottom of the color cartridge on a damp paper towel, check the streaks left behind, if there is no yellow either there is no yellow in the cartridge or it's just plugged. Dab it a few times on a wet towel, if still no yellow, you need another cartridge.
It could well be the printer head (the area where the cartridge locks into the printer) has gummed up contacts. Take a soft, lint-free cloth and wipe down gently wipe down the face of the contacts. Keep wiping until all residue is removed. Reinstall a color cartridge and then run the printer's software alignment utility (this is part of the software that comes with the printer).
it is better to change the black cartige becaue there is the jam of the ink in black cartidge. or pick out the black cartidge and clean with soft paper in the place from where color is pour. then reinstall the cartidge. i hope it will ok. otherwise, change the cartidge. byee
It may be the printer color settings in your printer properties. May be set to draft. Change it to best or normal.
Go to Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> right click on your printer's icon, go down to properties. There unerd advance, you can do a head cleaning. Under color management, set it to automatic.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
The photo cartridge replaces the black cartridge. It is used along with the color cartridge to provide better photo's.
The photo cartridge contains photo black, light cyan and light magenta while the color cartridge provides cyan, magenta and yellow. Both photo and color cartridges need to be installed and working for proper photo printing.
