    I have a HP Deskjet F4180 All-in-one, Airport Express, iMac 10.5.1.
    With the printer plugged into the iMac it prints in colour.
    With the printer plugged into the Airport Express I only get Black & White copies.

    Anybody the same or can anybody answer my problem. Thanks.

    Hi britpop,

    It's normal with your actual Airport and confirm by Apple, but ...

    Only If you see your printer in Airport Admin Utility under Printer :

    1) Download and install :

    2) Download and install :

    3) Download and install :

    4) Repair permissions with Onyx or with your Install Disk

    5) Restart your computer

    6) Restart your connection with your Printer (Cable-Power-Connection with your Airport)

    7) In Prefs Panes, select Printer ( + ) and install a new Printer

    8) Select your indicated Printer in the menu choice. If you have a Name for your Airport, give this Name under Place or Emplacement (excuse, i am French) and select HP Deskjet F4100 Foomatic/hpijs (recommended).

    9) And click Done

    With this Solution, you can just print. All other software possibilities can not run under the Airport. It is normal.

    I think all is ok for you.
