Replaced color cartridge in deskjet 6127. printer

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.

I replaced both cartriges (Black and Color) and when I print, the yellow color does not print. Even on the test page, the color setion at the bottom is blank where the yellow color block should be printed....

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.

HP DeskJet 850c will not print colour

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).

Won't print correct colour

Try printing a test page. If it comes out missing colors, the you color cartridge is bad. HP test pages will print each of the 3 colors by them selves, so you can see if you are getting all colors. If this prints ok, the I would think it is not a printer problem.

Color doesn't print in true color.

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

HP Deskjet F2100 All-in-one has two slots for printer cartidges. Which of these two slots is meant for photo cartidge?

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.
