    I have an HP Deskjet printer which recently, and without any warning, refused to print in color. I assumed that it was the cartridge and purchased a new one. But this made no difference. It now prints only in B & W. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this sudden development? TIA.

    I just wonder how many people, on this bulletin board, acknowledge their own "goofs"?!? Well, I'm one who is doing so. Sometime ago, when I was doing primarily draft printing, I set my printing preferences to "Economy" and to "Grayscale". Apparently, at these settings, a picture printout turns out to be strictly B & W. Once I went back in and changed those settings to "excellent" and unchecked the "Grayscale" option, my color printing capability returned to normal. cwilmot.
