Sounds like a couple of things....
the document program your using, when printing, check to see what is printing (pages) you can select one, current page or multiple. also check the attributes for printing.
check the settings for the printer, you might be out of ink
lastly, in the document, go to the Page File and scroll down to see if the shaded areas need to be 'set to back'
hope this helps and good luck

I'm printing Microsoft Word 2008 for mac files to an HP2600n printer and the tables with shading that has any blue in it comes out black. Why? Why?


It's possible that the Cyan toner is low or depleted. If so, the printer will print the blue areas in black. This is a possible way to check:

1. Open your Applications folder and double click on "System Preferences."
2. When it opens, click on the printer icon with "Print & Scan" underneath it.
3. Click on the HP2600 printer on the left, then click "Options & Supplies"
4. Click on "Supply Levels." Check the Cyan toner cartridge. If it's low, then you'll have to buy and install a new one.

Here is a link to the HP cartridge page.

You'll have to consult the information that came with the printer on how to replace the cartridge.

My HP CP2025 printer will not print color text and color shading in Word. It prints color photos, pdfs, and paintbrush files, but will not print color in Word or Word Perfect.


I had this problem on Windows 7 64x.

The solution that finally worked for me:
1. Go to your Devices & Printers window. (from the Start menu)
2. Right-click on your HP CP2025 printer and select Printer Properties.
3. Select the Device Settings tab.
4. Scroll to the bottom where you see Device Type. It probably says "Auto Detect."
5. Click on the words "Auto Detect" to activate a drop-down menu. Select "Color". Click the Apply button.

To test if this fixes your color printing, go to the General tab and click the Print Test Page button at the bottom. The page should print the Windows logo in color at the top of the page (the rest of the page is b&w).

Note: I did not install any additional drivers from HP for this printer. Windows automatically detected it and installed HP's Universal Print Driver PCL 6.

Printing pdfs with highlighted text/shaded areas


That just means that you don't have a postscript enabled printer, or possibly you're using a black and white only printer. You might be able to print highlighted items normally on other printers, but will have to remove the highlighting to see the text on the one that you have. Alternatively, if removing the highlights isn't possible, you might try selecting all the text and then pasting that into a new document in a word processor or another similar program. If you do have a color printer, and need to print what you're seeing, you can arrange the document so that it is centered on your screen and then press: "Alt + Print Screen" at the same time. You can then open MS Paint or a similar photo editing program and paste ("Ctrl + V") the screen capture into the program.

Let us know if you need further help.

Hope this will FixYa!!!
