Why does my printer print so slow when I print something off the internet?cc=us

Sometimes it so slow,I think it will stop. It does one pass each time with a few seconds in between.

What printer model?  This is likely caused by the failure of one of your cartridges.  Remove the black cartridge and print a test page.  Does the printer print at normal speed?  Is so the black cartridge was the issue and should be replaced.  If not then put the black cartridge back in and remove the color cartridge and print test page.  If the printer now prints normal speed the color cartridge was at fault and needs to be replaced.

When I took the black cartridge out and printed it seemed normal. When I took out the colored cartridge it went super fast. Very good.Does this mean my color cartridge is to blame? Both were over half full. If this is the problem should I send the color cartridge back to HP? I'm sure it's under warranty.

It appears your color cartridge has failed.  If it is an original HP (not a reman or refill) then check the warranty as shown here.

 HI,

My printer is doing the same Slow process again. I had changed the cartridge  a couple days ago but now it is at it again and prints so slow it seems like it is not going to work at all. Any other ideas.  It is a HP5610 all in one.

I would like to trouble shoot as my HP Deskjet printer 3050j610 series is doing one line at a time at a very slow,slow pace.
