Printer has yellow steak on it when I make a copy of something in color
I have a HP photosmart 2610 all-in-one. Whenever I make a copy of picture that is in color it will come out with a yellow streak on the side of paper. IT also happens when I scan a color photo. It doesnt happen when I make a black and white copy.

It looks like your Photosmart 1115 printer uses an HP45 black ink cartridge and an HP78 tri-color cartridge. Some HP printers will accept re-manufactured ink carts, while other HP printers will not...just so you know. I've always bought genuine HP ink cartridges on eBay to save $$$.
You can try buffing the contacts gently but this happens quite often with generic cartriges sometimes they just don't work. Contact the vendor and explain the issue, I reckon you'll find that they're fairly used to this problem and will request a return for a refund.
Try running a test page and see what happens. If only one or two colors print, for example you see magenta but no cyan or yellow, then the cartridge could be clogged. Try aligning the cartridges and/or cleaning them to see if that helps.
If not, the cartridge might be defective, damaged, or out of ink so try a different cartridge. It's possible that the ink dried up if the printer was left on for too long or not used for a long time, and sometimes there are just defective cartridges; this happened to me one time with a color HP cartridge for one of my printers.
Worst case scenario, if nothing is able to print or if the printer is making weird noises, it might be a problem with the headers or another internal component that would have to be fixed.
Try cleaning the gold contacts on cart first, with distilled water. Let dry and try again. If not, try this one 1.Try placing sheet of black text on copy board, and run many copies black only. I ran 25x12 times still no black. Run head clean after about each 50 sheets. Persevered and finally BLACK ink OK
hmm..you may need to remove that premium plus option, through the system preferences folder. Then re install the drivers(get em here for updates) for the Inkjet printer. And be sure to only select the features you really want.
I understand your situation, however let me explain you that whenever you try to make a copy or print, yellow cartridge takes part and provides its color in all the aspects. Please do check that you use the HP ink cartridges and try to clean the cartridges for every 15 days as this may reduce the issues of colors.
