ImageClass MFb42Cdw orange is printing red



I haven't used my printer in months, and we just moved. I'm trying to print something with orange, and it's coming out red/pink. How long do the printer cartridges last? My machine says they are all full; what other things can I try to fix this issue? I have performed all the cleaning within the maintenance menu--fixing assembly, clean ITM, clean feeder. When I print a test page with colors, all the colors come out looking good. I've also tried using a pdf of the document I'm printing vs making a copy, and it makes no difference. TIA!
