Unable to print in colour

HP all-in-one 2540 won't print in colour, although it used to. I read your answer. Unfortunately I am older and cannot understand the tasks you describe other than the first part. Don't know what is meant by an IP address etc the rest does not help. Tried downloding drivers -no change. Since it scans in colour it cannot be a major fault. I have already wasted 2 genuine cartridges hoping this was cause so I am now very unhappy with HP Can you help further please?

Welcome to the HP Support Community.

 

Let's try to do a root uninstall and reinstall of the software:

 

Unplug any USB cable, if any, before doing this.

 

1.) In Windows, search for and open Programs and features

2.) Select your HP Printer

3.) Select Uninstall

4.) In Windows, search for and open Devices and printers

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

6.) Open up 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

13.) Open up the run command with the "Windows key + R" key combo

14.) Type c:/programdata and click Ok. Go to Hewlett Packard folder, remove any printer related folders & files.

15.) Restart the computer. 

 

Once done, please download and install the software from here:
