@sandrine-nallet, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I understand the printer is not printing in Cyan. Make sure you have tried the steps mentioned in this document - Black or Color Ink Not Printing, Other Print Quality Issues

Clean the printhead up to 2 times and print a test page to check the result.

 

If the issue persists with 2 different ink cartridges, I'm afraid the issue could be with the printhead of the printer. Kindly check if your printer is affected by a known issue using this document. 

 

If not, and if the printer is out of warranty, I suggest you upgrade the printer. You may visit Hp Store to check the available printers.

 

Keep me posted for any other assistance.
