My yellow imaging unit is on back order, is there anyway to still use the printer until it gets here

Basically -no. If you could get a reset chip for it, you could probably carry on using the original drum for some time. For example

Why can't you leave the cartridge outside the printer more than 30 min .? I took cartridges out to take printer in shop . Now it says the color printer cartridge is not compatible

"If you were to open up an inkjet cartridge, inside you would find a
sponge holding the ink. This explains some of the mysterious warnings,
instructions and problems. When you install the cartridge, you rip off
a tab to open a vent to let air in to let the ink escape. The trouble
is, this also dries out the ink on the sponge. You can't use an
ink-jet printer only once a month and expect the cartridge to last the
normal length of time. The ink will dry out. Further, if you try to
refill the non-working cartridge with one of those incredibly messy
ink refill kits, you won't get satisfactory results because the sponge
may be too dried out, and won't hold the new ink. This is why they
tell you to wait five minutes and try refilling again if you can't get
all the ink in the first time. It gives the sponge time to moisten and
absorb the ink. That is also why they tell you to let the cartridge
sit for 15 minutes after filling -- to give the ink time to distribute
itself over the entire sponge, rather than running out the bottom as a
liquid. There are warnings on cartridges not not to rip off labels.
This is because there are filling vents under them used at the
factory. If you leave these exposed to the air, the sponge will try
out very quickly. The tops of the ink cartridges are sometimes covered
in mysterious swirling patterns, reminiscent of electronic circuits.
These are just for show to make you think there is something
complicated inside to justify the outrageous price. On the other hand,
you must not cover up all the vents on the top either. There must be
one tiny unclogged vent.

I installed new ink cartridges and everything acts as if it were working i.e. the printer powers up, the slide goes back and forth, the paper comes out, but no ink either color or black and white. I have...

Well to tell you the truth - if you didnt use Quality INK FROM THEM - IT PROBABLY KILLED the print head. which happens.
if you did buy their ink - then its still most likely a print head gone bad. they do need to be cleaned from time to time.
if the print head in on the cartridge itself then they might be a bad batch. I couldnt tell from the pictures of the ink cartridges i found. but check this forumn out. they had a good DO IT YOURSELF remedy that they said worked.
at the bottom of this next page is how to make sure you reinstall them properly.
thats from HP's website. so. looked easy to do - although cleaning them yourself will save time and lots of money as i found out that its $125 for all new print heads. so if you got the money i recommend buying them - if you got the time -- "I MYSELF would try the first remedy and follow the install instructions."
Hope this Helped x404x

I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Is it possible to refill ink cartridge on Lexmark x6690 printer?

Take out all cartridges, switch printer off and then on again and let printer see that there are no cartridges. Do this 5 times, it resets the cartridges. Then install refilled cartridges

The printer doesn't recognize the new original HP color cartridge

There is a small spring that holds the ink cartridge in the ink holder. You will see it stick out from the right hand side of the ink holder where the ink cartridge slides in. If that spring isn't being held to the ink holder by two plastic tabs, (I.E. the plastic tabs are broken) the printer will never recognize the cartridge. If the printer is still under warranty I would contact HP or an authorized repair center for HP. Both the black and color ink holder has this spring. I know of no way to repair this kind of breakage.

Changing ink cartridges

Make sure the printer is ON.

Open the top of the printer.

The cartridges are inside the cartridge carrier. You need to squeeze the tabs on the carrier which will flip up the lids to reveal the ink cartridges.

For reference, here are links to the setup sheet and the user guide. The setup sheet has pictures that should help.

Nothing wrong with the printer. The rubbish cartridge you bought and replace it with one that works. Approx 30% of most compatible/refilled cartridges DO NOT WORK.

Not only that but they WILL block your print head nozzles eventually. Ever wonder why Epson do NOT make any flushing cartridges but almost every compatible "maker" does??

99% sure the cart is at fault. return it to where you bought it and get a swap.
