    On my 2600n the red doesn't come out on print although the cartridge is 97% full according to the Supplies Status Page. I have been advised to try using a compressed air spray to clean it out but don't really know where to spray !

I have installed new HP cartridges (black and colour)but on testing I get no colours except magenta violet and red!! Peter Fairclough

You must set to clean the print head. Yellow ink doesn't work. Try to clean the print head with some hot water, untill you'll see yellow ink came out. Time to time you must print some color files do not dry the ink.

this is because of the low ink in the catridge. normally the colour catridge contains three colour in it. yellow ,blue and i think one more is pink. so in your case the other colours might have finished. so because of that you are getting only yellow. so please replace the catridge with new one and the problem wil be solved

My Business Inkjet 2280 will not print yellow properly. Its a brand new ink cartridge and my printing comes out striped. Ive tried cleaning and resetting, what do i do?

Try replacing the yellow Printhead. The printheads are inside the print carriage, usually a purple coloured flap, acessible from the top of the machine, and often confused with ink tanks.

There is a ink tank for each colour, and a seperate printhead for each colour....

Epsn C42 No Yellow

The ink path is probably plugged. Try getting some ink cleaner and a squeeze bulb to purge the path IN the printer by forcing cleaning fluid into the yellow channel (cartridge removed). After it flows, it will likely take a bit to get the yellow flowing. If you have a refill kit, you could "encourage" the flow with it. Nothing you can fix by cartridge, the problem is in the printhead.

Printer is refusing to print colour, with full colour ink tank.

Have you checked the ink levels in your cartridges? Ink can dry due to usage and also due to prolonged non usage.
