Epson C42 - Not Using Yellow Ink!

Strange Problem! My Epson C42 will not print using the yellow ink. Magenta, Blue & Black is fine. Have tried cleaning, nozzle alignment and nozzle check but nothing seems to fix the problem. Epsons technical support site is distressingly vague about the whole issue! Any helpers out there?

If repeated head cleans and all the other tests
do not resolve the problem, then the chances are
it is a dead head.
Whats to do?
If it is still under sellers/manufacturers warranty then that is the route.
If you are out of warranty then these are further things to try.
A REPAIR IS NOT AN OPTION IT IS USUALLY CHEAPER TO BUY THE NEXT MACHINE.
Get hold of a refill syringe set. Or a hypodermic syringe and remove the cartridge.
Endvour to fit the syringe over the yellow nozzle
[ may have to mess about with a fine tube - say a lenth of ball pen refill - empty of course]
in the cartidge bed and give a good set of pumps
If you have distilled water about the place
[ for the iron or car battery-] try pumping that through.
Now refit the cart and see what happens.

Have you tried replacing the cartridge with a new one?
