My printer: HP Deskjet 2050a. My printer was printing in color, but now it is not. I changed the color ink cartridge, but that did not help. It still will not print in color.

@dj2, you may have changed to "grayscale" printing and may not know it. Try to uninstall the printer software and drivers and see if helps.
@personalty, you may have did the same thing (dj2) done. Go to your printer preferences and check to see if "print in all black" is ENABLED or DISABLED. Also check for "grayscale" is on. If you have any issue, just uninstall and re-install the software.
Please mark a reply "ACCEPTED AS SOLUTION" if it solved your problem, so others can find it.
