hp color laserjet 2840 missing yellow

H Envy 4500
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Use instant ink.  HP software Ink level shows cardridge with 25% red and blue, but no yellow.  Examined cartridge, no damage apparent.  Dabbing tissue on print "holes" draws out only blue and red, no yellow.  No build-up of dried ink.  Machine is 2 yrs old, this cartridge were supplied as replacement using Instant Ink program.  Worked fine until recently.  I have performed the software clean program and the software 'deep clean'.  Everything points to 'no yellow ink', but Instant Ink program won't supply new cartridge until all three colors exhausted?  Any other tests I can perform to get them off the dime?

Thanx for your reply, but I had tried everything, without success.  What it boils down to is I'm out of yellow ink in the cartridge, and can't get more until other colors used up,  too.
