From the information you given it is very difficult to resolve your problem. Basically you have given no detail at all.

Assuming You wish to print a colour document via the PC using a Windows based PC with the correct drivers installed and a full set of ink carts:

1 Press [ON/OFF] to turn ON the machine.
2 Load the paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder. (See page 23)
3 Create a document or open a file to print.
4 Open the printer properties dialog box.
   (1) Select [Print] from the application software's [File] menu.
   The [Print] dialog box opens.
   (2) Ensure that your machine is selected (1).
   (3) Click [Preferences] or [Properties] (2).
   The [Main] tab of the [Preferences] screen is displayed.

5 Specify the required settings.
   (1) Click [Media Type] to select the type of media loaded in the machine
   (2) Specify the print quality and other settings in [Print Quality] or [Color/Intensity] AT THIS POINT, you need to ensure the box entitled GRAY SCALE PRINTING is NOT checked. Also ensure the Colour/Intensity option is set to AUTO
   (3) Click [OK]
   The [Print] dialog box opens.
6 Print the document.
   (1) Click [Print] or [OK]
   The machine starts printing

If any of the umpteen assumptions I have had to make are incorrect then post here what your exact configuration is and I will en devour to account for those particulars.

Why won't my Lexmark 5600- 6600 Series Printer print in color?

It could be the print setting on the application where you're printing from. Before you send your print job and hit "Print" button on your computer, check in the Printing Preferences and make sure it is not set to print "Using black ink only.".

Lexmark X1100 printer will not print black

I came up with a work around for printing black.

I changed the black cartridge with the color cartridge.
Then when I have a letter to print, I change change (or write) the letter text to yellow, red or blue.
Then I can print out a letter.

By printing the text as yellow, red or blue the cartridge will try to print with only 1 color, but will print out black.

If you do not use one of these primary printing colors the out put will be unusable.

I can not of course print out pictures.

The printer prints fine in black, but will not print in color.

try to make a color copy from the all-in-one and if it prints good, then try to print a test page from the computer and check whether the color is printing or not, if the color is printed then check whether the print in grayscale option is enabled or not, if it is enabled please disable it.

HP 5610 Will not print Color documents, only Black and White

Chances are that your print driver is set to print in black and white while the copier side is automatically detecting that your original is in color. To have the printer print in color: Select file print, select your printer and hit preferences. Select the Paper/Quality tab and switch from Black and White to Color.

Problem: Only printing Black/Greyscale

The printer software has probably been set to print in grayscale. Follow the steps below to check this setting:
  1. In the software application being printed from, click File , then Print . The Print dialog opens.
  2. Make sure the correct printer is selected, then click Preferences . The printer Preferences dialog opens.
  3. Select the Color tab, then make sure that Print in grayscale is not selected

Please let me know if still you cant print color. Its intresting. :)
