How to solve HP Color Printer ‘Unable to print in color, after installing the UPD’ error

HP printer is all what you need to obtain a high-quality and speedy printout. After installing the Universal Print Driver with your HP color printer, sometimes pages don’t print. This can happen due to a number of reasons and you need to follow a proper troubleshooting procedure to fix it. For that matter, HP customer service number is readily available to offer you proper technical guidance and support with the help of the expert technical staff.

  • First, you need to make sure that you are using the latest HP Universal Print Driver available online.
  • Go to printer properties, check if the print driver indicates color support from the ‘General’ tab. If the color setting in the ‘Features’ section is set to ‘No’, it means the driver is not configured to print in color.
  • If the color setting in the Features section is set to ‘No’, click on the ‘Device Settings’ tab and under Install-able Options, click on ‘Automatic Configuration: Off’ which will show the drop-down list and you have to select ‘Update Now’ to start the automatic configuration.
  • In case the Auto Configuration fails, the UPD will set the Monochrome setting as default. You can manually change the ‘printer type’ from setting to fix this issue. On the ‘Device Setting’ tab, click on ‘Device Type: Auto Detect’ to open the drop-down list and then select ‘Color’.
  • After the Automatic Configuration, if the ‘Duplex Unit’ (required for two-sided printing) option shows ‘Not Installed’, then you can manually change it to ‘Installed’.
    Click on the ‘General’ tab to verify that the color or Double-sided settings under the ‘Features’ section is set to ‘Yes’. You can print a test page to confirm and then click ‘Ok’ to save the settings.
