HP Envy 5546 won't print in colour

Hi,

 

Thanks for the advice. As my printer prints in colour when photocopying or printing a test page I'm not sure why the solution might be that it is out of colour ink? I have checked the settings and can confirm it is not set to print in greyscale.

Download and install HP Print and Scan Doctor, it is a Windows tool to fix printer issues. 

 

If the issue still persists, try re-installing the printer driver -

 

1. In the search box, type and open "Uninstall a Program".

2. Look for HP Printer software.

3. Right-click to uninstall.

4. In the search box, type and open “Devices and printers”.

5. In the Devices and Printers, look for your HP printer. If you see it listed right-click on it and choose “Delete” or “Remove Device”.

6. Open the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo. 

7. Type printui.exe /s and click Ok. (Note: there is a space in between “printui.exe” and “/s”).

8. Click on the "Drivers" tab.

9. Look for HP Printer driver. If you see it Click on it and click “Remove” at the bottom.

10. Select Ok.

11. Select Apply and Ok on the Print Server Properties windows.

12. Close Devices and Printers Once the software and drivers are removed.

13. Restart the computer.

14. Download and install the software and drivers from here for Windows 10 (64-bit).

15. Click on the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 

 

Let me know how that goes 🙂

Hi,

 

The test page in HP Print and Scan Doctor 5.3 only prints in greyscale but if I select and print the info page under web services settings on the printer it is colour.

How's the printer connected - wired or wireless? 

 

Please try re-installing the printer driver.

Hi Asmita,

 

It's wireless.

 

I reinstalled the driver and can now print in colour. Many thanks for your help.
