Question about HP DeskJet 1220c/ps InkJet Printer
Run a clean cycle and a test page this is priming the cartridges. If this fails to get the colors going the printer will need to go in for repair. The internal print circuit could be gone. Check costs before doing this a new printer maybe worth less then the repair.

Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Are you using HP factory new cartridges?
If you are using third party or worse, refilled cartridges, that may well be the cause of your proiblems.

check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

The application that you use to print may have been cofigured to avoid the black color.
And sometimes a virus has affetced your application e.g. MS Word.... this may cause the printer to print in any colour.
In this case you should reinstall the application. (first completely remove the application).
