Does it print in colour when you perform the nozzle-check in the printer driver's maintenance section? If not, the printhead nozzles may be blocked with dried-up ink.
In which case you need to run the driver's nozzle-cleaning utility a few times.

Just a thought, but are the properties for the printer set to only print in black and white?
