Printing letters taking too long

I have a HP Laser Jet printer 2840.  I sent a job of 250 letters to the printer, and it's been an hour and a half and so far only 125 letters have printed.  It is taking 20 seconds for each letter to print.  Does anyone have a fix for this?  Thanks.

Hello withak125, There may be several reasons for this slow printing. The times you suggest are really not normal.

 

The specifications show this printer will print black pages at 20 ppm., so if the printer was working and set up properly, the 125 pages should have printed in about 7 minutes or so.

 

Here  is a link that has some information for your printer.

 

It is recommended to use an ethernet cable and not a USB cable to connect to the printer. This printer ships with 96 MB of installed memory, and can be upgraded to more memory, which would speed up the printing process.

 

You might try printing just 25 pages at one time and see if this speeds up the printing time.
