HP won't print colour

HP Recommended
HP Envy 5546

My HP ENVY 5540 printer won't print in color anymore.  I cleaned the cartridges and the ink levels are okay.  I have looked and looked for an area that has a selection for "Print in grayscale" but cannot find one anywhere.  Any help is greatly appreciated!
