I just installed my printer and have had a terrible time getting printer to work via wireless. Finally got that done, but now the printer only prints in black, not color and it takes forever. This printer is a replacing my old C7280 which gave me no problems at all.

@JMB135, Welcome to HP Support Community!
- Are you able to make color photocopies?
- Which application are you trying to print from?
- Is it an issue from one application or all applications?
- Is there any error message when you try to print?
While you answer the questions, try the following:
Restart the printer and the Mac computer. Add the printer using Apple AirPrint drivers.
1.) Click the Apple menu, click System Preferences, and then click Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners.
2.) Check if your printer name displays in the Printers list, If your printer is listed, click the printer name, click the minus sign to delete the printer.
3.) If you see multiple printer queues for the same printer, remove all extra printers by selecting them one at a time, and then clicking the minus button at the bottom of the list.
4.) Click the plus sign click Add Printer or Scanner, click the printer name.
5.) Click the Use or Print Using menu, select AirPrint in the pop-up menu. Then click Add.
6.) Try to print.
