HP colour laser jet CP2025. Prints colour on test sheet but not from pc. It was printing colour until wireless was installed - is there a connection?


Your driver is not sending color data. Either your driver is set to print in geayscale, or you are printing through a monochrome driver to the IP address of the CP 2025

Error while printing message


Please try to powerdown your Printer and then your computer. Please restart both.
If you still are having the problem, then:

Try deleting and adding the printer again and see what happens from the printer setup utility if you are not able to print under another user and repair permission doesn't work.

Sounds like you cover all the bases. I just wonder if you reset the unit via the service mode?
resetting the printer should have cleared the memory.

Hold down select and return while powering on machine, hold until self test comes up on display then press go, this will get you into service mode.

Run the memory diagnostics.

The test page only verifies the cartridges. The printer properties of the software control the printer during printing.

Fix this Error - use an advanced registry cleaner for Windows that allows you to safely scan, clean, and repair registry problems with a few simple mouse clicks.

Brother 950/980: On copy or transmit they may produce black pages. Prone to bad scanner (CCD). Brother may provide a replacement CCD at no charge to the original owner. Sometimes leaving the unit unplugged for a few hours will solve the problem temporarily.
Brother HL600 series laser printer toner will work in the laser fax & multifunction machines (part number TN100HL = TN100PPF). Drum units may be interchangeable as well (?).
Brother 1350/1550/1950: Problem: Record paper jams. Solution: Replace upper shoot. P/N UF6058001. Although there seems to be nothing causing the jam, the upper shoot gets stress marks on the ends. Replace even though it is not broken.
Thermal Transfer Machines: Only one side of the page is printing. Caused by the printhead latch being cracked. The latch is blue in color there is one on each side of the printhead, replace both latches
