Help! Epson Stylus 820 no yellows

Hi guys, we just replaced our cartridge and our printer is printing absolutely no yellows.

Do you know what is wrong? We checked the settings and each colour is set to the same amount... also, the heads have been cleaned 10 times in a row.

Thanks for your help!

i have an epson cx4600. occasionally the lever on the cartridge gets gummed up. i pull out the cartridge and stick a needle in the inky area and it's good to go.

You can also try cleaning the head of the yellow cartridge in some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. It may be jammed. Also check the contacts on the back of the cartridge, to see if they are clean. Sometimes ink leaks up and blocks the connection, stopping the cartridge from releasing ink.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but it's still not working.

The ink monitor is working... it shows there is a bit more yellow than everything else.
