If you use the Format, Background, Fill Effects, Picture, Select Picture
Then it's normal for powerpoint not to print the background.
If you do insert picture from file then it will print.
If you want to control how it will print on a black and white
black and white
right click image and choose B&W
Then choose from the settings..e.g. grayscale, inverse, light grayscale,
auto, don't show etc
