HP 4530 doesn't give option to print in colour

HP Deskjet Ing Advantage 4535
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi I just installed the printer features and drivers after a major windows update (last march. I only used the android app on my smartphone/tablet previously), and cannot get the colour printing options. It shows as if it only prints in blac/white.
I read previous/similar posts, but none of them were helpful.
Can someone help me to solve the problem?

Thank you!

Hi @MarceSupro

Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.


I understand you do not have an option to print in color from your PC. Let us try these steps:

  1. On the PC, go to Control panel > Devices and printers > Add a printer(at the top) 
  2. Under 'Choose a device or printer', click on 'The printer I want isn't listed'.
  3. Select 'Add a printer using a TCP/IP address'
  4. Find the IP address of the printer by tapping on the wireless/ethernet icon on the printer screen
  5. Type in the 'IP address in Hostname or IP address' box, click next
  6. Proceed to the next steps by following the on-screen instructions.
  7. Try printing in color.

If the issue persists, Install the printer using Windows built-in driver

Refer to this document to know how. Try printing.


I hope this helps! Keep me posted.
