Color images printing in black and white only is a very common problem but not (usually) the other way around. My first guess is that you still have ink in your color cartridge but your black ink cartridge is empty. Usually, you'll receive an error message on the panel of the printer letting you know this, so you might want to have a look. Also, you can open the printer and have a look at the cartridges to see if the black one is empty. If it is, just replace it with a fresh one.

Having said all that, HP.com has a web page that can help you troubleshoot the problem:

Wrong Colors

Hopefully, this is a simple fix. Good luck.

How do I trouble shoot a HP printer 4500 G510n-z copier feature doesn't work.


Have you tried this? Turn the printer off. Then turn it back on. After it settles, with the right/left arrows adjust the indicator in the control panel window to either black/white copies or color copies. Place paper on scanner window and press the OK button. It should print the copy.

My printer copy's in color but prints photos in black and white,


Check your settings for your printer software program, change it to black and white, and then you will need to change it back to color, if you want to print in color.

Cant print black or do black and white copies


He's not saying that the black cartridge won't print (which would warrant cleaning the heads, or messing with the cartridges) -- I have the same problem that MarkDan is having as well... no matter what you select as the output from any "Print" dialog window, the HP 21xx and 12xx series printers _always_ print in full color. You can choose Black and White, Greyscale, Color -- doesn't matter what you choose in the dialog boxes, it utterly ignores you, and will always print in color.
I have no idea why it does this, but it's eating a _ton_ of color ink for no good reason. I have searched all over the Web and on HP's site, but solution has been found.
