  1. printer not print in color


    1 I have a new wireless hp Officejet 3830 working with my lenova ideapad, with most recent windows update on it

    2 My printer will only print in B & W/ greyscale, even when document on screen has color on it

    3 It will print in color when a document is placed on the screen, and when it checks for alignment, etc

    4 I can't find anywhere that shows printing preference: color/ B & W-- It used to be there on previous versions of Windows, but no longer on the print instructions page, or under printer properties

    5 I have tried to contact HP multiple times-- the chat or the live person says, let me get back to you, and person (live or chat) does not get back in touch with me.

    6 This is very frustrating, as I need to print my letterhead with color in it.

    :)

  2. access color printing options for printer

    Hello Frank,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft Community and welcome to the Windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that the images printed in Windows are in black and white format.

    To be able to assist you better, let us know if you are able to print documents in other formats in color format.

    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to open the Print dialog box in Windows to access the settings for color profiles used in printer.

    • Use the keyboard shortcuts Windows Logo + R to open the Run Command Dialog box
    • Type in the command: shellprinter not print in color :printersFolder
    • Right-clicking on the printer and open the printer preferences, where you can choose options such as paper size and layout.

    • Select Print color which gives you options for Color or black-and-white (grayscale) prints.

    Write to us with the updated information. If you need further assistance, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank you.
