Why are only black and yellow printing? - Canon i9100 InkJet Photo Printer

    There are actually 6 cartridges, black, cyan, magenta, photo cyan, photo magenta and yellow. Now all but the yellow are full. I have taken them out and inspected them, blown on the connections to remove any suspected debris and replaced cartridges. Still no change.

The printer has two ink-cartridges: black and tri-color.
The black cartridge has ink left.
The tri-color cartridge has run out of 2 of the 3 colours of ink.
Buy a replacement tri-color cartridge,
and responsibly recycle the "empty" cartridge.

Prints yellow instead of black


I had the same problem with my Brother MFC 490 CW. It suddenly started printing yellow instead of black. I believe my problem was cause by a mislabeled third party black ink cartridge. The cartridge was labelled black but it had a yellow end piece. In any case I took out the black cartridge and replaced with another. Initially it made no difference I assume because some yellow ink was still in the tube. After 10 or so pages of printing the print turned darker. I also did three cleanings and unplugged the unit and then plugged it back in. I am not sure what if anything these latter two actions accomplished, but I wanted to report all I did in case they were actually part of the solution. My own conclusion is that it was simply a mislabeled cartridge.

HP All-In-One 4500 prints YELLOW when Black is SELECTED Could this be a PRINT HEAD PROBLEM?


Hi,
The inkjet printers print colors as they combine the major 4 colors contained in the cartridges CMYK (or said in words cyan, magenta, yellow and black) in some proportion.
If you print black the printer gets ink from the black cartridge only. If the black cartridge is empty some devices start to print black as a combination of the colors in the color cartridge - for example gets some of the cyan, gets some of the magenta, gets some of the yellow.
In your case maybe some of the other colors are empty too (or the nozzles are clogged) and the printer cannot prepare the correct mixture of colors to start printing black.
I suggest you to change both black and color cartridges.
Hope this helps.

Cannot get yellow to print


I had the same problem with the yellow cartridge. Yellow quit printing, put in a new yellow and still would not print yellow. I had a help file, don't know where I got it, but it suggested replacing the black ink cartridge also, even though the black wasn't low yet. Replaced the black, ran a few nozzle cleans and everything worked fine. Don't know why. Try it
