    Strange. Since the colors print OK, do they also show up in Backstage view (Ctrl+F2)? Is the behavior the same no matter which color you test?

    Note that reinstalling usually does not fix anything (because registry entries and some files will be retained). Repairing Office by running setup from Control Panel is more likely to help.

    Since this affects more than one application, have you tried reinstalling or updating the printer driver?
