Yellow ink leak

The yellow ink leaks from the bottom where the cartridge connects to the printer. There is a white piece that sits in a channel that is in every other ink slot but is pushed back into the yellow slot. How can this be fixed.

This would be best addressed by an HP repair center - trying to repair this on your own may result in more damage to the printing system.

Depending on your date of purchase, you may be fully or partially covered under your 1 year, parts and labor limited warranty.

Best of luck

Printer is not printing yellow, Light Cyan, Cyan, blue lines through Light Magenta & Magenta, What could be causing this and it is also leaking black ink out of the bottom of printer.


Is it under warranty, are you re-filling the cartridges? If yes to first and no to the other two, send it back under warranty. If you use copy cartridges or refill old ones the warranty is vod. This means you need to replace the printer. To be honest, you'd be better off buying an Epson all in one. Even the wireless model start @ sound 40gbp and you can buy good copy cartridges from choicestationery.com

I have installed new cartridges the colour prints perfect but the black is blurred with lies through it. i also found a small t shaped rubber piece about about 4mm x 6mm in the paper tray could this be the...


this rubber piece can be actually locket from printer rollers, but, returning to your smudgy printing

1. remove cartridges from the printer
2. check if there is bit of paper stuck anywhere in paper path, if so, remove
3. check if rollers on paper path are clean
4. touch bottom of the cartridge with absorbent tissue to check if ink is flowing through, if yes then insert cartridges back and print test page.
5. if cartridge do not allow inkflow, check what solvent is used (water, isopropyl alcohol or methylated spirit - this which do not cause precipitation is correct solvent), soak absorbent paper (tissue) with proper solvent and whipe head of the cartridge with it, 6. put drop of the solvent on golden knobs inside seats of the cartridges of the printer, allow it to soak in, wipe off with lint free tissue and put another drop of solvent in. allow soak in,
7. install cartridges back, print test page, it should start printing very weak and improving as it goes through the page (solvent will be printed first)
8. create "strip page" one line yellow, white space, one line cyan, white, magenta, white, black - print that page, this print will clean printheads and establish good inkflow.

all ink printers must print at least one page per week as to keep heads free of gum and ink in flow.

Epson r265 keeps printing purple pictures I have installed new cartridges and done a head clean several timesbut i just won't budge


You probably need to purge the yellow ink channel. Use the cleaner found in refill kits and gently force the cleaner through the channel where the yellow ink cartridge attaches.

After cleaning, you will need to "charge" that ink channel either by many cleanings or by forcing the yellow ink into the channel before installing the cartridge.

I can't produce green colors. I have cleaned the printer head with no impovement. Can this part be replaced? How would I know if the problem is electrical and not physical? Peter


I assume by cleaning you mean pressure FLUSHING the ink channel with cleaner, not just wiping the head. You have to charge the ink channel after flushing to prime it.

The cost of a replacement part probably makes it un-economical to do a replacement.

Testing for electrical problem without schematics would be hard.

Do check that the flex carriage cable connection is good.

The printhead has a problem (after replacing the yellow/black ink cartridge with HP ink).


Try to clean the printhead manually ,

# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

I have a Brother DCP350 and no yellow ink. But tonight I have to print a document. Will the printer work without Yellow? I have been trying for an hour now and cannot print anything.


Hi matt651, I had the same problem with the DCP-350. As soon as one of the colour cartidges was empty, which happened frequently due to the high ink loss during the cleaning process, the machine stopped working, even when I only wanted to print using black. This is how i worked around the problem using a piece of grey card stock: The tanks have a small clear window that lets you see the ink in the cartridge. This window also triggers a photocell which sits in a little black fork at the back of each of the printer's ink cartridge slots. When the ink levels are up, the cell is blocked, thereby indicating a full cartridge. When the ink level in the cartridge drops below the photocell, the cell switches over, indicating an empty cartridge. So in order to simulate a full ink catridge I removed the offending empty one and instead slipped a piece of cardboard into its slot, thereby fooling the photocell. And hey presto, when I switched the printer back on, all ink cartridges thus manipulated were shown as being "full" and I could continue printing.
Kind regards, Rog

Don't know how to move the cartridges to replace the ink.


Please follow the instructions below to ensure correct installation:
  1. Lower the printer's output tray and open the top cover.
  2. Connect the power cable to the printer.

And switch on the printer.

The print heads will now move to the replacement position. If they do not move to a change position press the Red ink button on the printer.

  • Lift up the ink cartridge clamps.

    Before you open the new ink cartridge package, shake it four or five times. Then remove it from the package.

    Do not touch the green chip
    on the side of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge.

    Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge.

    3400723.jpg
    You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, print quality may decline or you may not be able to print.

    If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow tape, take the cartridge out of the product remove the yellow tape, and then reinstall it.

    Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge or the label on the cartridge; otherwise the cartridge may become unusable or ink will leak.

    Place the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the bottom down. Then push down the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.
    38585f1.jpg
    Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each ink cartridge.


  • Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place
  • 5ee2013.jpg
      If you find it difficult to close the cartridge cover, make sure all the cartridges are firmly seated. Press down on each cartridge until you hear it click into place. Do not attempt to force the cover closed.

    1. Close the printer cover and press the ink or start button to begin charging the system. Charging can take up to three minutes and is complete when the power light stops flashing.
    While the ink system is charging do not switch off the printer.
