@garyb6 

 

You should be able to see Grayscale options from Printer properties. Please select Grayscale Off, it will print in colors.

so ended up doing this which seemed to work

windows +R

type %temp%

open folder 7zS5C2C

then X64

then removepreinstalleddrivers.exe

then restart

set preferences looks different now but give the colour or b&w option
