Cyan, Magenta & Black print good.
But Yellow is faint and streaky, slightly better when print quality set to Best rather than Draft, but still poor.
Tried a new yellow ink catrtridge and still the same.
I suspect blocked printhead or nozzles?
Any ideas please?
Welcome to the HP support community.
I understand that the yellow ink cartridge is not printing, and I am glad to assist you.
Use a Print Quality Diagnostic report to check if the printhead or ink cartridges need to be cleaned or if there is an alignment issue.
Load plain white paper in the tray.
Print the report.
If that does not print fine, follow these steps:-
Clean the printhead and cartridges to resolve print quality issues including incorrect colors, streaks, and faded prints.

I have tried all the head cleaning options as well.
They have not worked.
I presume that the Yellow nozzles are blocked and I will need to remove the printer head to clean out....????
This seems to be a hardware issue and requires one on one intraction to fix the issue.
