If you view the report in Print Preview, do you see the color background?

On the Print Options of the Page Setup dialog for the report, has the 'Print Data Only' check box been ticked? If so, clear it.

i would like to share the solution for my issue in order to others benefit.

the issue was in the printer driver, sometimes windows 10 installing a default driver for a printer, which may not work properly in some application.
after installing the driver from the printer offecial website the issue has been solved.

Regards
