    Technology shelf life...
    I hate to have to buy a new printer because of this, but since installing Mountain Lion, my older HP Printer no longer prints in color. If I do a test on it, it spits out color. If I'm printing a Pages color document, everything comes out grayscale. Anyone know of a fix besides buying a new printer? I assume that if I have 10.8.3 installed, I have the latest HP drivers that may or may not help with this printer. In any case I'm downloading the latest drivers in an attempt to reinstall with fingers crossed.
    Thanks!

    Latest drivers don't support this printer. Actually they did not support printer before, but before the OS upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion, it still printed in color. It's aggravating when you upgrade your OS and hardware breaks. Yes, I understand, but it is still aggravating. Since it prints in B&W, why not color? :p
