Normally when the color tank runs out 2 things happen.

1] not all the colors run out at the same time.
2] the printer complains the tank needs to ne replaced.

If the tank isn't dry, it could simply be clogged. I like to use rubbing alcohol or distilled water and a cotton swab.

Dip the swab, & then gently apply pressure in the nozzles.
I would expect to see the clog before the cleaning process, some color to come off & when pressed on a paper towel, hopefully 3 bands.

You can start a scan from your computer or from your HP PSC. 1 Load your original.
2 Press Scanner, then press PC Save, if not already lit. This saves the scan to your computer.
3 Press Black or Color. For Windows, a scan of the original appears in the HP Image Viewer. For Macintosh, a scan of the original appears in the HP Workplace. In the HP Image Viewer, you can edit the scanned image. When you are done viewing the image, click Accept.
The HP PSC does a final scan of the original and sends the image to the HP Photo View Center in Windows. In the HP Photo View Center, you can:
- edit images, including adding text
- creative printing
- create and print photo albums
- send to fax, e-mail, web page, or other programs.

The printer won't print color only black and white

Sounds like the print head on the color side is ether plugged on its plunger or the print head failed totally the real way to do any testing is get yourself a printer cleaning kit and follow the direction on that if that does not shore it up replace the plunger and or printhead around $45-50 bucks respectivly.

Scanned Items or Copies all print in Solid Black

I assume that you mean color images are being produced in black and white. If that's the case, there's a document on the HP web site that shows you what to look for and provides solutions:

Color Image Prints in Black and White

Good luck.
