You need to replace ink, try to buy complete set of ink and replace it, if same problem in printing, try run self test print if default test page print in complete color, or else there’s problem with your print head.
The print head for the yellow color may be clogged. Check the manual to see how to turn on your print head's cleaning system. Run it until the yellow starts to print properly. If after running the cycle 4 or 5 times you still can't get any yellow to print you will probably have to take the printer to your local repair depot to have them diagnose the problem.
The problem is in scheme from printer that touches the cartridge from behind. You must clean this scheme from ink with a soft cloth dipped in spirit/kleannex.
Use the klennex/spirit and clean off those contact on the holder and printer will work again.
Then before you print anything, you should run cartridge alignment from control panel- printers and faxes-> right click on default printer-> properties-> printing prefrences(general tab) and also print a test page. Align the catridge and then run clean catridges a couple times. Print the test page to see how it's look and way you go.
Be sure not to leave any debris of klennex/spirit on those holder contact panel
