My lines won't print in color. I have done all the plot style manager changes. I need the lines red for change orders on a project. Please advise.
CTB/STB is one way to convert drawing colors to others, start to disable the usage of them and try again.
Next step is to look to the driver you use, maybe it's a b/w-printer or your have set any options within the driver to output the result in B/W or greyscale. For that, try to switch your driver to DWF- or PDF-plotting and try again
Next chance might be that you have viewports with layer-overrides, try to create a new layout with a new viewport, how's that plotting?
Let us know the results (and if possible, upload the drawing and describe which line should be plotted in red.

Ok, so you get color out? Your thread title says "won't print in color"!
So if it's a color a little bit different then you might have set a color-adjustment as option to your printer. In that case try to first create a PDF, compare the color when you see the PDF on screen to the printed PDF .... any difference?
Also: what happens if you start Excel, fill one cell red and print it, how does it look like on the paper?
