I hardly ever print anything in colour and I now that I need to my document only prints in blue and pink hues. Its suppose to be yellow and green. My tests show No yellow at all. Do I have to replace the whole colour cartridge or is there another problem/solution?

Re: No Yellow will print
If you haven't used it for a long time the ink may have dried up. You can try taking out the cartridge and letting it sit on an hot wet rag for a while to unclog the print heads. Try not to touch the copper contacts on the cartridge. If that doesn't work you may be out of yellow 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
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.
Hi alexgallo01 Do you get other colours except pink? If that is the case,reasons could be: 1. there is not enough RED or BLUE in the cartridge. 2. you haven't selected pink colour on the text or images you are trying to print. If you are typing a document highlight the text you want in pink, and choose PINK color for the font. Then print the document. The printer will use color closest to your choice, if it does not have the exact color. Hope this will help. If it help you, please give a rating Cheers luciana44
Try printing a test page. If it comes out missing colors, the you color cartridge is bad. HP test pages will print each of the 3 colors by them selves, so you can see if you are getting all colors. If this prints ok, the I would think it is not a printer problem.
ur printer prints in blues pinks n purple: its very simple :there r three prime colours in ur colour cartridge that forms all the other colour variation they are cyan, magenta n yellow. ur yellow colour in ur cartridge is either dried or empty thats the reason its not printing the colour variations which requires yellow. the solution is to either get ur colour cartridge refilled or replace ur colour cartridge. rate this solution as fixya n encourage us to help u solve ur problems in future too.thanks 4 using fixya.
