Thanks for the post. With this one, if you run a simple copy from the glass/control panel, does it still deliver a B/W version? If so, I would suspect the ink system. If not, I would be looking at a possible driver issue. Ensure that the printer (OJ Pro 8500 plus) is selected when you begin your scanning. Also, you can scan via a different method to further narrow down the issue. I've included a couple of links below that will give you some other scanning options and some things to check in the printer settings. Good Luck!
