Why is my printer not printing in color?

HP Recommended

My printer:  HP Deskjet 2050a.   My printer was printing in color, but now it is not.  I changed the color ink cartridge, but that did not help.   It still will not print in color.

Check your printing preferences. You could have accidentally changed them.

@dj2, you may have changed to "grayscale" printing and may not know it. Try to uninstall the printer software and drivers and see if helps.

@personalty, you may have did the same thing (dj2) done. Go to your printer preferences and check to see if "print in all black" is ENABLED or DISABLED. Also check for "grayscale" is on. If you have any issue, just uninstall and re-install the software.
