you can follow the instructions below, in order to print in color with your new HP Laserjet P1005 printer:

  1. Use the mouse and go to "Start," then "Control Panel." The control panel displays current settings and system features. Double-click on the icon labeled "Printers and Faxes" to bring up all currently installed printers.
  2. Select the HP Laserjet P1005 by clicking on the appropriate icon. Be sure to only click once to select the printer. Double-clicking will bring up the printer spooler. Right-click on the icon and select "Properties"
  3. Locate the tab that is labeled "Color." Double-click on the tab name to display the current color settings. Notice two options, "Print in Grayscale" and "Print in Color." Click the white box next to "Print in Color" to ensure that the printer is set properly to use both the black and the color ink cartridge. Click "Apply" and then "OK" to save the settings.
I hope this helps to solve your problem.

Good luck.

    When I opened properties, then a tab called color management, and it is defaulted to automatic color- but when I go to print it it is just black and the way there is no black or white or grayscale option. What next

    open your printer, remove and fix back the colored ink cartridge.

    Take care.

To properly install your HP Laserjet P1005 Printer on Windows 7 32 bit, you will have to download new drivers. You have two options:
  1. Option One: You can download the new driver as well as the corresponding software package here: Click Here.
  2. Option Two: You can download just the driver, but must follow a specific set of instructions if you do not want the accompanying software package. You can do this by going here: Click Here.

My brand new hp laser 1005 says out of paper and wont feed any of the paper through?

PROBLEM: it was out of paper, new paper was installed, but printer wouldn't feed or print

SOLUTION: Lift the top cover of the LaserJet (where the printed paper would come out) and close it again. This resets the printer. Now the printer should feed and print again.

Does it show "Printing" or "Spooling" in the job queue window?

Open the Job queue window, then highlight and cancel the print job. Send a small print job to the printer and make sure that the PC and the printer are communicating.

If the failure re-occurs, then clear the queue again and close it and restart i=the queue.

Go to the printer properties, you can go from Start-->Printers and Faxes. Select the printer (it should say something like, HP LaserJet P1005 on DPR1260 ..... make a double click on there. Then select Printer -----> Properties. Then go to Ports, and DE-SELECT the box that says: Enable bydirectional compatibility. IT SHOULD BE NOT SELECTED. Then Select Apply, and then Acept. After doing this, the printer should start working.
