  • Hi,

    Maybe you need to check your settings on your printer, plus take out color cartridge and re-install.

    On your print settings, go to properties, then click on the "color" tab, make sure the "print in greyscale" button isn't checked.

    In addition, for printer issue, I’m afraid your best bet is contacting manufacturer for further help.

    Best Regards,
