Brother HL-4050CDN - cannot change print preferences to color


I am unable to get the print preferences to change - it applies or saves, but when I print or open the dialog again, it always reverts to mono.

No Paper: Load user defined paper in multi purpose tray

Ensure that under the printer preferences the paper type you actually have is the type selected.

Go to printers under control panel, right click the printer :

Select Printer properties. Look under preferences or settings for paper size settings

Also look when you are printing from your program wether under "page setup" you have the correct paper type selected.
