A computer on the network running Windows XP Pro will not print color from any application including a test page. No problem with other computers. Printer is a networked HP LJ CP4005dn. Checked all printer property settings and compared to other computers having no problem.

Your station is probably running the monochrome driver. Go here and choose the Postscript driver:

Although all workstations are running the same driver, I will check out this idea. However because the unit in question is in a secure area I can't get back to it right away and so it will take awhile to check this idea out.

Although you may THINK you checked all printer property settings, you might have missed:

Properties/Advanced/Printing Defaults/Color/Print in Greyscale

You might have a modern environment with all sorts of high-tech equipment, but what makes it worthwhile is how you seamlessly bring together the presentation with audio, video and lighting. The ATEN Control System provides integrated control and system automation.

Indirectly I think you have pointed us to the solution. We looked at that chain of choices earlier and for some blind reason ignored the fact that choices for that user were grayed out i.e. not available. Which means that she is probably not on the list of users allowed to print in color on the network. It looks like it is a simple permissions issue which we will look at Monday.

Makes sense. It's the only place that monochrome could be selected that would affect a test page, which is why I suggested you doublecheck...

The problem was related to permissions. The user was not in the color users group. Never has come up before.

It wasn't actually the solution but it revealed the solution.
