Solved!

HP OfficeJet 3830 does not print colour from computer

HP Recommended
Pavilion x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hi,

I am struggling with colour printing  for my printer. I am using original HP cartridge.

Problem seems a bit weird for me. 

1. Test prints initiated from laptop prints colour, but any other prints triggered with print B&W.

2. I can print colour if I trigger it from the phone app.

 

Multiple test runs were done with printing.

Ran HP diagnostics with Scan Doctor - no issues found.

I reinstalled the HP Smart app on my laptop.

I reset the printer to factory settings.

 

Any solutions for this ?
