HP Envy 5020 Printing issue

HP Recommended
Envy 5020
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My Envy 5020 has suddenly started to have a printing issue.  It hase new cartridges but the colour printing - especially Yellow - is very poor or non-existent.  I have aligned, cleaned and deep cleaned the heads, but I still get the same problems.  These occure whether I print from my PC or as part of the printer test suite.  I have reverted tjhe printer to factory settings - same results


Before I throw it in the bin, any suggestions (it is only a couple of years old, and gets little use)


I attach a couple of pictures to show the results of various diagnostic prints (I would have used .pdfs but there seemed

to be no way to attach one )

Welcome to the HP Support Community.


Do you have any other yellow ink to check if this is an issue with the current yellow ink?


Try a firmware update:


Let me know if this helps.
