Hp Deskjet 1510 prints slowly

HP Recommended
Hp Deskjet 1510
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My HP Deskjet 1510 prints very slowly. More in detail it prints few print lines (4 -6 lines) with a normal velocity, then stops for some seconds (5-10) then it starts again printing (as normal) few lines after that it has a new period of stop   ......and so on until the end of the file.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi @Billy76,


I'd like to help!


I understand you are facing a slow printing issue-


Try the below suggestions-


Reset the printer

Reset the printer to recover from printer errors or failures.

  1. If your printer has a rechargeable battery, remove it.

  2. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the printer.

  3. Unplug the power cord from the power source.

  4. Wait 60 seconds.

  5. Reconnect the power cord to a wall outlet and to the printer.


    HP recommends plugging the printer directly into a wall outlet.

  6. Turn on the printer to complete the reset.

Turn off Quiet Mode (Windows 10)

Quiet Mode reduces noise levels when printing, but can also reduce print speed.

Quiet Mode is not available for all printers.

  • HP Smart app: Open the HP Smart app, click your printer, click Advanced Settings. On the Settings tab, click Quiet Mode under Preferences, select Off, and then click Apply.


    If prompted for a password or PIN, enter the password previously set by the printer administrator or PIN from the label on your printer. You can find the label on the back of the printer or open the cartridge access door and look inside the printer.

  • HP Printer Assistant: Search Windows for your printer, and then select your printer in the results to open HP Printer Assistant. On the Quiet Mode tab, select Off, and then click Save Setting.

Reduce print quality to improve print speed (Windows)

Selecting certain paper types or printing in higher quality can slow print speeds. Print with plain paper in reduced quality for faster print speeds.

  1. Search Windows for printers, and then click Printers & Scanners in the list of results.

  2. Click your printer, and then click Manage > Printing preferences.

  3. Click the Paper or Paper/Quality tab, and then make sure Plain Paper is selected in the Type or Paper type field.

  4. Adjust the print quality.

    • HP inkjet and LaserJet printers: In the Print Quality field, make sure Draft or Normal is selected.

    • HP Laser printers: Click the Graphics tab, and then click Standard in the Quality field.

  5. Click OK or Apply to confirm the changes.

Print with both cartridges (inkjet printers)

If your printer supports printing with only one cartridge, doing so might reduce print speed.

  1. Open the cartridge access door, and then make sure all cartridges are properly installed.

  2. Check ink levels, and then replace any empty cartridges.

 Also, try updating the printer's firmware - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware 


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
