I have a rarely used BJC-1000 printer that I just hooked up after about 6 months.  It prints but only in yellow.  What would cause this?

Most likely are dried up or clogged ink cartridges.

Any ways to fix this besides getting a new cartridge?

You can try using a soft, lint free cloth to wipe away any accumulated gunk from both the contact side and the ink jet side of the cartridge.  If necessary, use a very small amount of rubbing alchohol to remove it.

If it still prints only in yellow you will probably have to replace the cartridge.  Some people have had success with the 3rd party refill kits, but I don't like them for color cartridges - the inks are not as well matched.
