Open the printing preference dialog and check on the "Color" tab (I'm assuming you use Windows). There's a box there labeled "Print in Grayscale". Make sure that it IS NOT checked.

If that's not the problem, check that the ink cartridges are properly installed. There will be a tape one the cartridges over the part where ink is released, check that it has been completely removed.
