    Hey all,

    My airport express detects my printer fine and uses the HP-All-In-One 2.7.1 drivers (it auto selects these).

    However whenever I go to print in colour, it refuses. Instead it just prints all pictures in black and white! This never used to happen with my airport extreme base station a year ago.

    For reference: the airport express was bought 4 weeks ago but as I've been in Uni i've only been printing black and white documents really. Today i came to print a colour doc and ! it doesn't work.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Can't tell you what is wrong, but can assure you that you are not alone with the printing/Airport Express problem. Some printers on the compatible list are no longer compatible due to firmware changes, but hopefully you can find the answer here:

    I have the same problem with my HP deskjet seems to be a thing with HP printers and a lot of people seem to have this problem...I resolve it by plugging in the USB cord direct then printing
