Delayed printing

HP 3055A
Microsoft Windows XP

I have a HP 3055A printer. Since getting a HP pavillion laptop it will print the first document I send to the printer, then there is a 5minute delay between any further documents. Also, when I turn the laptop off and then on again it will reprint the last document I sent to the printer.


Any ideas?

Delayed printing



Welcome to the HP Forums. I would be happy to help you with your HP Deskjet 3055A Printer. I understand that you are getting slow printing issue and

you have already done some preliminary troubleshooting.


Don't worry though as I have a few steps to determine the issue and find a solution as well,


Reset the printer.

  1. Turn the printer on, if it is not already on.

  2. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue.

  3. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.

  4. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

  5. Wait at least 60 seconds.

  6. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.

  7. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.

  8. Turn on the printer.

Check the print driver settings.

Uninstall and reinstall the print driver.

Update the printer firmware.

Check the network status.


Click here and refer the document to perform the above steps.


Let me know how it goes.
