Printer won't print any color

@Sunshyne1, Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

Are you using the HP Instant ink cartridges in the printer?

Have you tried making a standalone Color copy and check if it prints in color?

 

Update the printer firmware

Click here to know different methods of updating printer firmware.

 

Clean the printhead

  1. From the printer control panel, open the Setup  menu.

  2. Open the Printer Maintenance menu.

  3. If necessary, open the Tools menu, and then touch Clean Printhead.

  4. NOTE: If the printhead is badly clogged, it might require another cleaning cycle. If so, wait 30 minutes before you perform all three levels of cleaning again.

Also, perform step 9 and 10 from this document.

 

As the issue is related to Instant ink cartridges, I need more information to help you out.
