I had the same problem earlier today. get a flash light with the printer lid up on the right corner should be a chuck of ink there remove that with a q tip and get some rubbering alcohol dip with q tip and clean the surrounding area you probably gonna need like 10 q-tips theres actually a sensor some where around there but i never seem to find it but most likely the run off ink is blocking the sensor from doing its job. once your done turn off the printer and unplug usb and power

This is the main drive belt slipping at the back, if the belt has done more than 150k copies then it has probably stretched or starting to get worn or even stripped. If the belt is fairly new then there is an encoder assembly at the front which has a disk that may need cleaning by an engineer.
Something is wrong with the yellow cartridge. pull the yellow cartridge, and make sure transportation strip got fully removed, give the cartridge a good shake, and reinsert the cartridge and try the band test again. If you still only get magenta and cyan and combinations of them, return the yellow cartridge for a replacement.
Have you cleaned the Intermmediate Transfer Belt assembly feed rollers because they can slip causing this problem. You may need to replace the assembly if this doesn't work or just replace the belt and the rollers.
Make sure the cartridge is firmly seated in its holder. It's possible that the carriage belt has broken or has slipped off the motot pulley. Look inside the printer and locate the flat toothed belt that pulls the carriage back and forth. follow it to either end and make sure that it isn't broken or slipped off the motor.
That is a fault in the transfer belt hole sensor. It is a sensor used to know the proper position of the belt seam. I would suspect it is covered with toner, the belt has tracked to the front or back, the belt is slipping, or the belt is damaged. I would think replacing the transfer belt would resolve the problem It is called the belt hole IC in diagnostics.
Just a suggestion, Under the carriage there is a LED sensor that determines the head position, also the timing strip may need cleaning. I would look the drive belt over verry carefully, even one tooth gone could cause a slip. They are too cheap (12-18$) not to replace. Hope it helps
