Won't print in color from my Mac or iPhoto to HP photosmart D110

My printer will only print in black and white when I print from my Mac OS X  10.6.4 to my printer.  I have downloaded photos to I photo and them only print in black and white.  When I put the memory card directly into the printer it prints in color fine.

 

the HP web site was no help at all with this issue.  Any suggestions.

This is certainly odd.  I assume you loaded the D110 software from the CD that says its compatible with 10.6 or from the HP website.

 

Let's pick on OS X first:

 

1. Update OS X 10.6.4 with the combo update.  This makes sure that all of the components from 10.6.0 to 10.6.4 are present.  Get it here.

 

2. Repair permissions: System Preferences > Utilities > Disk Utility.  Select Macintosh HD on the left, then click the "Repair disk permissions" button.

Re: Won't print in color from my Mac or iPhoto to HP photosmart D110

I had this problem with my brand new imac 27" and brand new HP Photosmart D110 printer.  I called apple tech support, downloaded drivers from HP and nothing worked.  Apple tech shrugged and said I'd have to contact HP support for this.... but it was a pain even contacting them online because site refused to accept my product # and serial# ?!!!

 

Here is what worked for me:

 

Open system preferences from dock at bottom of imac screen

click on "Print & Fax"

click on "Open Print Queue"

click on "Printer Setup"

click on "driver"

where it says "print using", use the drop down toggle and click on "select printer software"

scroll down this huge list until you come to HP Photosmart D110 Series and select it

click OK

Hello, PrintDoc  I tried this, but when I tried the Mac OS X v10.6.4 Update (combo), I got an error message saying that it couldn't be installed on my disk; the volume does not meet the requirements for this update.  See my post for solution to this problem.

Re: Won't print in color from my Mac or iPhoto to HP photosmart D110

Hey PrintDoc,

I am having the issue with photos not printing in color but I am on Windows 2007, not Mac.  Any suggestions?

I have photos on a CD that I am trying to print.  The first 2 or 3 printed in color but now it will only print black ink. 

Any help would be appreciated!

Have you checked your ink levels?

Re: Won't print in color from my Mac or iPhoto to HP photosmart D110

I installed Pages on my Macbook Pro instead of Microsoft Word.

I had a project to do and i had only images to print. I have a Hp Photosmart C4480 and it connects to my laptop by the USB port. The ink levels are high but when i click print it prints in black and white. I go into all the settings but see nothing about color changing. Help!! What do I do ?

Print a self test from the front of the printer. Does it print color? If not there is something wrong with your color cartridge. What version of OS X?
