If you have buttons on your printer, you can easily access the colour changing preferences, your functions on the printer is definitely set as: black & white - copy, kindly change it to: Colour - copy.

There are other two similar ways you can get this to work:

1st way
    -- hit the windows logo key on your keyboard and type 'Printer'
    -- right click your printer and select preferences-advanced
    -- in the colour section, uncheck 'Print Colours as Black and White'
    -- Apply, Hit Ok.

2nd way

    -- by simply going to HP solution centre,
    -- you can change the output to colour.

That's it, try all these steps and let me know how it all works out.
