HP 3830 suddenly not offering option to print in color, although it has worked fine before.

HP 3830 printer suddenly stopped offering me the option of printing in color, although it has worked in the past.  I can print a test page correctly, and when I print directly from the Internet I get the option, but not from the word processing program.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Are you able to make Color Photocopies?

Let's start with a Printer Reset:

(1) Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.
(2) Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.
(3) With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
(4) Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
(5) Wait at least 60 seconds.
(6) Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
 NOTE: HP recommends connecting the printer power cord directly to the wall outlet.
(7) Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
(8) Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on.


The printer might go through a warm-up period. The printer lights might flash, and the carriage might move.
Wait until the warm-up period finishes and your printer is idle and silent before you proceed

 

Also download and run the Print And Scan Doctor from this Link: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/printers/hppsdr/patches/HPPSdr.exe 

  1. Run PSDR v5.0.2 

  2. Once the PSDR detects the Printer, it will show up the IP address and Software Status. 

  3. Select the correct Printer and click on Next. 

  4. PSDR will check if the Printer is on the Network and communication between the PC and the Printer. Once the connection check is done, click on Fix Printing 

  5. Once PSDR goes through all checks and automatic fixes, click on Print a test page. 

  6. Regardless if PSDR printed the test page or not, click on “NO PRINT” 

  7. PSDR will then notify you that there is an update available, click on continue, and PSDR will apply the patch and ask for a reboot. 

  8. Post restart the PSDR will run automatically to check for more issue.  If no issue found close PSDR. 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
