No Color When Printing from Photoshop - Adobe Photoshop 7, CS, CS2 & CS3

This isn't making any sense to me, so I'm hoping others can shed light on my plight. When printing from photoshop 7 on a Windows 2000 based machine, I cannot get color. At first I immediately thought drivers were to blame, but after trying both the default and the PS drivers for 3 different printers: Lexmark inkjet, Xerox Color Laser and HP color laser my results are the same.

    Default No Color When Printing from Photoshop

    This isn't making any sense to me, so I'm hoping others can shed light on my plight. When printing from photoshop 7 on a Windows 2000 based machine, I cannot get color. At first I immediately thought drivers were to blame, but after trying both the default and the PS drivers for 3 different printers: Lexmark inkjet, Xerox Color Laser and HP color laser my results are the same. I've exhausted the web to no avail.

    To clarify a bit, I can take an unmodified color JPG, hit print to send to any of the printers and get only black and white. I can take the SAME JPG into any other program, like Freehand or even simply IE and print in full color. The same goes for any other file type or even creating a PSD from scratch. Obviously I lose the control benefits if I go out to a third party program so Id rather not be forced to do this every time.

    Has anyone run into this? Can you offer any solutions or recomendations? I've checked through page setup and color prefs and tried multiple things but I'm willing to try again.

    It is a driver or printer configuration issue.

    Photoshop prints color just fine, on any OS, to any color printer.

    Depending on the printer model, there may be a checkbox under Advanced settings in the print dialog where you have to select either Black and White or Color.

    Have you checked that?
