First of all never use a napkin to clean any electrical devices. Napkins can hold a static charge.Plus as you use the napkin little pieces of it could get stuck between the terminals. Add a little moisture and it spells disaster. For the solution what I would do first is unhook your printer. Shut the power off and unplug it. Then go into your add remove programs and remove all the software and drivers for your printer. You will also want to double check its gone by going into my computer and seeing if under printers your printer is listed.Then what i would do is get a registry cleaner there are many of them on the net to download. This will fix any registry problems that could be causing a error. After running the cleaner then reinstall your printer. Make sure you install it like the manufacture has listed,each printer is diffrent on how it is installed. Once you load the software and plug it in use the utilites software that comes with your printer and test a print page.

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.

Kudos to Ken from the HP forums for this knowledge: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Printers-LaserJet/CP2025-Won-t-Print-in-Color/td-p/1151762

Hp c6180 will not print from windows vista; no error message displayed on computer or printer; print queue says error printing with no explanation wireless installation hp solution center says no hp...

This means that your system does not display any printer name under the printer's list even though you would have installed your wireless printer on your Windows Vista system. This could be caused if you have not updated printer drivers in your system or the printer is incompatible with Windows Vista. Also see if the Windows firewall is blocking the printer from being recognized by your system. get more information for HP Wireless Printer Problems . Hope this helps you.
