HP Deskjet 815c not using the yellow ink

  reddwarfcrew 13:00 09 May 2004

I have a HP deskjet 815c which has stopped using the yellow ink.

I've tried a new cartridge, cleaning the cartridges, new drivers, trying it on a different pc, but to no avail.

Any ideas or is the printer in need of replacement?

As the 815c has only one colour cartridge, it seems to me that the printer has a fault. I had this model but never experienced this problem. Recently I wanted a printer which would print on cd's and dvd's. PC Advisor recomended the Canon i865. It's teriffic and so quick compared to the old HP. Well worth changing even if the old printer still works.

Its actually my sisters printer, I do have the Canon i865 myself (the hp 815c was my old one that I passed onto her).

I have an HP 815c. It has been in the boot of my car for 6 weeks now. I will dig it out and give it a try and see what I get.

Just connected the printer and loaded the drivers.
It seems to print black OK but haven't tried the colours yet. Will do a test print and let you know.

No problem. This printer has been sitting in the boot of my car for 6 weeks and have just installed it on a computer. It prints perfectly. All colours and black working fine. If you want it let me know. It's yours for £25 plus the postage. email me.
