HP 4630 all-in-one Printer Malfunction with iMac


Operating an iMac using OS 10.8 with an HP 4630 deskjet all-in-one printer.
The printer suddenly stopped printing color, only B&W. The color
cartridge is fine.
I believe the problem occurred after I downloaded an Apple software
update, possibly involving security.
I tried re-installing the HP driver for the printer but that did not
I had the identical problem with an older HP deskjet 5550 printer
at the same time. I found some open source driver software for that
printer which corrected the problem.
Is there similar driver software for the 4630 printer?
Appreciate any help. Contact me at: rcarm@verizon.net
Thank you.
