I have a Officejet 6500 E709a, and it is printing blue & yellow colors erratically.
By that I mean sometimes it won't print blue, & other times it won't print yellow.
When I run fist-level head-clean, blue doesn't register on the print-out; when I run second-level head-clean, blue registers, but yellow doesn't.
The problem is not in the cartridges; they're full & I've never had problems with them.
