Can't print in color all of a sudden, running Microsoft Office 365, Windows 8.1 on OHP Officejet that is several years old.

Have an HP OfficeJet 6500aplus and which has been working fine with Microsoft 365 and Windows 8.1 for several months. All of a suddent 2 days ago it will not print color from the Word program, prints in color from website. Also tried to print from PDF, Excel will print in black and white only. Have run all of the diagostics, installed new ink, and it will not print.

In that case, I would delete the printer and then re-install it.
