HP 4632 Printing Issues

HP Recommended
HP 4632 all-in-one
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

After attempting to print a spread sheet, anything I try to print now takes 5-15 minutes to complete ONE page of plain text.

I've repaired, I've used HP Doctor, I've dropped, uninstalled, and after reboot reinstalled and no change.  I still can't print documents. or anything for that matter.

Hello, 

 

Kindly check if there are any pending Windows Updates to be installed on your pc. If yes, then go ahead to update the Windows. Restart the PC and then try printing.

Nope, didn't work.  Took almost 2 minutes before it pulled in the paper, then another minute to print one line, then another minute to print a second line, and another minute to print a third.  Took almost 2 minutes before printing the 4th.

Hello, 

 

I'd suggest you to try the below steps.

  1. Please download and run the HP Print and Scan Doctor from www.hp.com/go/tools   after which try printing.
  2. If issue still persists use HP SMART APP to print. https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c04675142 
  3. If issue still persists, i'd suggest you to uninstall the printer software and re-install it.

I believe in the original post I said that I have already used the doctor and uninstalled and reinstalled the printer.  SO you are basically telling me to do things I've already done.  And I already have the APP but I can't print from that app when I am printing something from Word or Excel or other programs I am using.

These directions are inaccurate.  When I clicked on the "Add a Printer" I didn't get any option that said "Add a local printer with manual settings"   After gyrating for a while, it came back with an empty screen.

When you click "Add a Printer", A window with text "Choose a device or a printer to add to this PC...." appears as shown below. At the bottom click on "The Printer that i want isn't listed".

Now you'd see "Find a printer by other options" window. If you have the printer connected in wireless network, then select the option "Add a printer using TCP/IP address or hostname" and follow the instructions.

Nothing has changed,   It is still taking forever to print a simple text page.  It's been 15 minutes and still barely 4 lines

I also tried a "test Page" and that took over 30 minutes and it didn't really finish.
