Re: My Printer is printing very slow

I have had this happen twice and both times it was when I accidentally left a paper in for copying.  Even when I removed it, the printer went into very slow mode.  Finally, I tried unplugging the printer and removing the cord from the back of the printer as well.  I turned off the printer, rebooted, turned it on again, and the problem is solved.  At least in my case, I needed to reset things after removing the paper I had copied and left in.  I do not know if this is your issue, but I am passing it on in case it is as it is certainly frustrating when this happens.

Re: My Printer is printing very slow

Hi Bob, 

I have a D1360 and had the same slow printing issue. Ive tried your suggestion, first I remove the black cartridge and did the test print, its fast. Then I remove the Color and putback te black, testprint...its OK too. Then I put them back and print my work... the problem persist, very slow printing.  What happen ? isit software problem ? 

 

Thanks

Kris

Re: My Printer is printing very slow

I have a HP Deskjet 6940.  I tried your method (with pencil eraser) of gently cleaning of the cartridge contact inside the printer.  Amazing results!!!!  It's back up to speed and it only took  30 seconds.  Thanks.

Re: My Printer is printing very slow

Read the issues with slow printers, tried the suggestions and discovered the color cartridge had ink build up on the back of it..cleaned it off, and all is well!

Thanks to HP for the help!

Re: My Printer is printing very slow

This worked for me, I removed my tri-color because it was empty and it printed fast again!

I'm trying to see why my printer is so slow. I see your responses below but I am not at all technical..

What is a swath, how do I print in reserve mode? is cartridge an ink cartridge or something else in the printer?

Thanks


A swath is the printhead moving across the page.  Reserve mode is possible on most recent printers that have a two ink cartridges, one for black and another that is tri-color.  When one of the ink cartridges is removed the printer will automatically switch to reserve mode and print with the remaining cartridge.

 

What is your printer model?

Re: My Printer is printing very slow

I have a PSC 2410 photosmart printer that was working fine until a couple of days ago....now it prints one page in 8 minutes.....one line then a pause of 45 seconds and then another line.   I switched ink cartridges and then one at a time but it still prints slow.  What is wrong....I see this same problem on chats on line.
