    You may have the yellow sucking up some red.

    Bad caps, and/or big difference in red and yellow cartridge ink levels are a couple of reasons for this.

    Do a medium clean, or print some big squares of yellow. 4' x 4'... You have to use up the ink in the head, damper and line. Hopefully it has not reached your cartridge.

    The sponges can swell up on the caps, causing them to touch the head and bleed ink out which can be drawn into the yellow channel.

    How can you seethe ink in the cartridge?

    If you make a square in your graphics program and use CMYK and only C=0 M= O Y= 100 K= 0 what colour prints?

    I did this this week with mine and it is clearly yellow, with no hint of mustard or red etc...

    Are you using Roland inks?

    I will have to look at my SP540V. I have not seen a clear box where I can see the colours.

    So the next thing is to check the colour you are printing like I suggested above and see if you
    print yellow or mustard.
