I have only had this printer for a couple of months. I have a Mac 10.6 desktop computer. When I first started using the printer it would print in colour but only sometimes and I couldn't work our when that would be. I couldn't work out how to consistently print in colour. Now it doesn't print in colour at all. All the ink cartridges are full. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks.

I have installed the driver and software updates as suggested. The problem still exists. I did not mention that I have two Mac desktop (10.6) computers using this printer wirelessly. One sits next to the printer on the desk and prints in colour every time. The other is in another room downstairs - this is the one that now only prints in black and white. If I send a document to the printer via hp eprint from my phone it will print in colour. Any further help you can give is most appreciated.
