The printer takes a long time to print.


Buy a faster printer.

And, no, I'm not being a smart-aleck

HP rates this printer at up to 32 pages per minute -- in fast draft mode black ink only... But even their ratings show it takes over a minute per page when doing quality printing in color.

And those speed ratings are all "after first page" -- ALL printers take longer for the first page due to the time it takes for the computer to set up the page and process the information.

As the specs suggest, you can get faster printing in black-only instead of color and by choosing fast draft mode instead of quality or normal mode.

There is very little that could be wrong with the printer that would make it print slower than usual -- generally any problem would make it not print at all or cause it to print incorrectly. Generally speaking whatever speed you see is simply the speed of the printer itself based on the settings you have selected, the software you are using, and the speed of your computer.

You can refer to the information on the HP website. It is just possible that replacing the printer driver MIGHT help but other than that there simply isn't much you can do about the speed of this (or any) printer unless you want to choose a lower quality print setting.

I have a 2410 HP printer and it prints very very very slow. Can you help me? Email address pretty111comcast.net


I have the exact same model of printer, I find that it prints faster if you go into printing preferences and change the print quality to fast draft or fast normal. You can also set the printer directly by pressingcopy twice then press3 for copy quality, then select 3 for fast.
Doing both should produce faster printing for your documents. (NOTE : This will not suggested if you are printiing items that need to have crisp clean printing as the faster it prints the less detailed the printing is.)

My printer is very slow it takes aprox 2 min to print color and 1 1/2 for b&w


Try changing the quality settings to the lowest setting (usually called draft or economy). If that doesn't speed up the printing the issue is most likely with your computer, not the printer.

Want to speed it up


There are several things that may cause you printer to be slower than advertised. Click on control panel and then click on printers and right click on your 5550 and you'll see a drop down menu. Then select printer preferences. You'll see a screen with several tabs. go to paper/quality and click on it and make sure you have 'default printer settings' in the little window near the top and then look at Print Quality near the lower left--make sure this is set on Normal, fast Normal or draft. This should help speed the printer output. Also, printing full pages of small print and color will slow things down quite a bit.

hope this helps.

Not printing to fast draft


Make "fast draft" your default setting, otherwise, whenever you open a new document, it will print it in "normal mode".

My printer is hp 2418 it is given print is very slow . so what to do


Adjust the Quality Settings for your printer.

Reduce the quality.

If it's on Best/Maximum Quality, Then change it to Normal or Draft.

That will speed it up, although it will accordingly reduce print quality, as well as amount of ink used per page.

It really prints so slow


Hi,
Try setting the printing properties to fast draft or draft. It provides a average quality document faster using less ink.
To do this, go to Start->Control Panel and then Printers. Right click on your printer and choose printing preferences. Find the setting for the quality and select Draft or Fast Draft if it is available.
Please note that this printer has a rate of 5.36 pages per minute, so even with the draft you will not see much difference.

Regards,
nicolasiac

Prints slow


Check to see what quality you are printing in, all printers print slower in normal mode compared to fast or draft mode. When you go to print click on property and change the quality. This is normally a temporary fix to keep the settings you need to do the same thing inside the printers folder.
