HP k80 will not print yellow

Hi Can anyone help. My printer will not print yellow or anything that needs yellow 9ie green,orange etc). The cartridge has been refilled. I have cleaned the nozzles, re aligned the cartridge, even installed a brand new cartridge. Nothing. Also cleaned the cartridge contacts and the contacts in the printer - both the colour and b&w. HELP before i chuck it out the window and resort to buying a new one. thanks Tony

    I have an hp photosmart 2610 that won't print yellow. I replaced the ink cartridge with a hp brand cartridge, cleaned the contacts, aligned the print cartridges. Still no yellow ink which means no red and all dark colors.. Any suggestions?

Spounds like a defective print head bud. these do wear out and most of the time it will cost as much as a new unit.. Good Luck

Only yellow is printing

Put the cartridge head in hot water for a minute, the ink may have clogged the print head.

Print colour is off

Sounds like you have cyan and magenta ink but no yellow. (You need yellow to get yellows, greens, reds and orange shades.) First try running the printer utility to clean your ink jets, then run a test print. If this does not work then simply replace the yellow ink cartridge.

Printer will only print color pictures in black and cyan

Hi, this printer color cartridge contains all colors in one. So if you can print with one color means that the whole cartrige is ok but one or more colors ended. And you should had a low ink message on screen if it was genuine HP. Best thing to do is to go and buy a new one cartridge and see how it will go. This cartridge is green color.

HP OfficeJet K80 All-In-One Problem: Constant Request To Realign Cartridge

This could be a hit or miss but what does it hurt to try...
I had this problem with the color cartridge a while back. Worked tirelessly with HP support and somehow got it to work. Since it was on the phone and a while back, I fogot! Now is the time for the black cartridge. Same thing. Reading somewhere here about skipping the test I gave it a try and it worked.

- Unplug the printer for 1 minute (not sure if this is necessary but it doesn't hurt).
- Replug.
- When the "Press Enter to align..." message comes up, PRESS and HOLD Enter.
- While holding Enter, press Menu. The screen skips the test part and shows the date.
- Release Enter. Now you can print. Actually, I could print, you are on your own now.

Good luck!

Hp Deskjet 845C - Yellow Colour not Printing

I found this post to work for me when yellow was not printing on my HP PSC750 after using 2 cartridges: "Well if you want to damage your printer use alcohol. But if you want to make it work then pull the cartridge from the printer and run hot water on a couple of paper towels leaving alot of hot water in the towels. Put some thing under them to keep them from staining your counter top and then set the cartridge down onto the hotwater towel and let the hot water melt away the dry ink and in minutes you may be printing again if this is what it is. Be sure and use a dry paper towel to wipe off the ecess wet before you reinstall the cartridge."
