Confirm that you have yellow ink left in the cartridge.
Do a print head cleaning indicated in the printer utility program.
Also if you go to your printer in the start, settings, printer and faxes and right click on properties, you should find a head clean function.

Epson workforce 545 is printing & coping blank

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

E000020-01a2 showing this error

This an error code for the yellow color. The E020 is related to toner or drums. The 01 is for yellow but my book doesn't have the a2 part. How long has it been since the yellow drum has been changed? It's good for about 40,000 prints. Go into service mode and go to copier, display, dens, then misc. This will give you the approximate life of each color drum as expressed as a percentage of life. Hope this helps.

My Officejet 6000 E609n printer doesn't print the correct colors. The red is printing yellow and the blue and green are a lighter version of what is on the screen. I have cleaned the printer head


This is not a cartridge issue. IT is Printhead issue. Since you have done the manual cleaning, it is now time to replace the Printhead.

The printer is recognising that the Yellow is full but when I print out a test page the yellow doesn't print. Is this a printer or cartridge issue?

try to do deep head cleaning, few times. If this doesn't helps you need to remove the ink's and print head and bottom of print head ( where are ink nozzles ) few times press on wet cloath.

Then repeat the deep cleaning.

Yellow is completely missing from the nozzle check. However, I was able to print a sqaure of solid yellow ??

More than likely, your print heads need cleaned. Remove any dried up ink from the inside of your printer with a Q-Tip and some denatured alcohol. Let everything dry and put it back together. If that doesn't do the trick, you either need a new ink cartridge, or a new printer.
