My humidity hovers around 50% right now and I rarely have head cleanings, except for the yellow channel.  I usually print a nozzle check before a print job, and every time, the yellow channel needs cleaning.  In the last month, none of the other channels indicated a cleaning was needed.  Is there something 'different' with the yellow?  I remember reading somewhere that it's the weakest of the colours - but doubt that has anything to do with it.

Is this something I should be concerned about that I should get looked at while it's still under warranty?

I would have it looked at.  My 9900 did the same thing but with orange.  Epson replaced the damper. And it has worked fine since.  Yellow gets a lot more use than orangery least on my printer.   Since you are under warranty I would make the call to Epson.

Under warranty--call Epson. They may want to send you a new yellow cart to test before sending out a tech.

Yes, they're always more than welcome to send out a new cartridge...



I have the exact opposite.  I don't think I've ever seen a problem in the yellow channel test pattern!
