I got a new laptop and my envy will not print in color.  Color is not showing as option on printer properties,  can print in color from old laptop.  I  have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer,  restarted the computer and the printer.  What else can I do?

HP Envy 4520 color not working

Thank you for your help, however this did not help.  I have been using several of my instant ink pages to check if it worked.  I printed from my old laptop today and it worked in color.   Do you have any other suggestions?

Let us install the printer using TCP/IP port:

 

1) Obtain the IP address of the printer by clicking on the wireless icon on the printer screen.
2) Right-click your printer, select Printer Properties, click the Ports tab and then click Add Port.
3) Select Standard TCP/IP Port, and then click New Port.
4) Follow the instructions to add a new port using the information listed on the Network Configuration Report.
5) Try printing.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Thank you for the suggestion.  However it did not work.  We tried an eprint job-I think that's what it was called and it worked.  We think we need the Windows 10 update solution.

Please try a root-level uninstall as mentioned here.

 

Try adding the printer using the IP address -

 

1. Select “Start” and type “printers” in the search box.
2. Choose “Printers & scanners“.
3. Select “Add a printer or scanner“.
4. Wait for the “The printer that I want isn’t listed” option to appear, then select it.
5. Select “Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or hostname” , then select “Next“.
6. Select “TCP/IP Device” in the “Device type” list.
7. Type the hostname or the IP address of the printer. Select “Next“. To find the IP address of the printer, touch the Wi-Fi icon on the printer's control panel. 
8. Windows should find the printer if the printer is on and configured correctly. You may have to specify more information. If prompted, Select the type of network adapter installed in the printer in the “Device Type” drop-down list. You can also click “Custom” to specify custom settings for the network printer. Select “Next“.


Let me know how that goes.
