About a couple weeks ago, I was in the process of printing some color documents for my small business, and the yellow ink tank was almost empty. I replaced it (correctly, the top vent was completely exposed) and continued printing, but noticed the colors came out washed out and wrong, and it had stopped printing yellow. I took the ink cartridge out and inspected it, didn't notice any damage or defects, replaced it, and tried again. This time, it stopped printing magenta too, despite that ink tank being completely full and working just moments before.
I've tried several nozzle checks and cleanings, and no matter what I do, yellow and magenta refuse to print.
You can try taking the print head out and putting it back in. Please click HERE for the steps. If that does not resolve the issue, the printer would need to be replaced.
