If you have run the nozzle cleaning utility, and you are not getting any yellow output, the cartridge is most likely defective. This also occurs if you are not using OEM ink cartridges.

You can try to perform a power purge, do it by the following:

  • Enter maintenance mode. Either with starting your machine with Menu button down, or by pressing Menu, 2, 8, 6, 4 quickly. The fax/copy/scan buttons should flash/be lit.
  • Press 7, 6.
  • Press 3, the machine should now say something like "POWER_P" or "P_PURGE"
  • Press Mono/Black start, the machine should now say "cleaning".
  • When it's done, the display should say Maintenance, and you can leave this service mode by typing 9, 9.
You can now try printing a test page again, the result should hopefully be better.
Be noted however, that this purge takes ink from your cartridges, but it's more likely to solve the issue then just trying to do more "regular cleaning".

1, After understanding the issue, there are a few steps by which you can resolve this. This issue is known as the Ghost printing, where it will print a single document twice.
2, To resolve this problem I strongly recommend you to use only genuine cartridges from the same company.
3, Each cartridge ensures you to provide good quality and high-resolution prints. Now, check if the printing sheets are compatible with the specification of your printer.
4, Use only unused printing sheets, with correct paper size and good quality. If you are not sure if the printing sheets meet the specifications for the device.
5, If the media is not suitable for the printer, perform a test print of 10 pages on the machine using regular 20 lb or 24 lb media.
6, If the ghosting is still present, continue to the next step. Open the rear cover of the machine.
7, Place the grey pressure release levers in the position. Clean the levers properly and try printing.
8, If you still not able to print then try servicing your printer.
