Yellow does not look yellow at all

HP Recommended
DesignJet Z5200
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

We have a DesignJet Z5200 printer and when we first got it, the yellow ink actually looked yellow when printed. Now when we print something with the color yellow, it comes out orange. The yellow cartridge is still 75% full. There are no error messages. Also green is not printing correctly either. The ink is very expensive. Do we need a new cartridge? Or is there a setting that can be changed? Thank you in advance!

Please perform printhead clean and complete printheads alignment and print image diagnostic print page.... If there have color printing is OK....while print any job.... Please Goto printer properties and Goto color then select application manage by color.... Then print and check....


If diagnostic image color not good... Please replace printhead on required faulty one. .. 

I hope problem will solved

Did you test with the internal photo image? I had a similar problem with other colors and replaced with new HP printheads. That cleared up the issue.
