Printer only prints in black

HP Officejet 3830
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello everyone, I've recently purchased a new HP OfficeJet 3830.

It's been working fine but after 2 weeks of using it all of a sudden if i try to print something with colors it prints it in black.


I tried following this guide and reinstall printer drivers, it didn't work.


I tried looking for the "grayscale" option but i couldn't find it, i don't know if it was removed or I'm missing it.


All that said i did find out that if i select "Print Quality Diagnostics" in the settings it will print the diagnostics test in color,

Also if i send the file i want to print to my printer's email it will print in color.


So i can just use my printer email to bypass this problem but it's an annoying method to use if I'm at home, i have to save the file and upload it to my email every time i want to print something and if i want to print multiple copies i need to send the email multiple times...


How do i fix this??

I appreciate all help.
