My Officejet 4315 All-in-One is printing very very slow How do I fix this problem? I have restarted it and unplugged then replugged it and have restarted the computer and it still prints really really...


The very first thing you need to do determine whether the issue is in the Hardware or in the Software for that on the printer .
1. Load plain paper in the tray.
2. Press the Setup button
3. Press 2 to select Print Report
4. Press 4 to select Self-Test Report . The self-test page prints.
Measure the time (in seconds) it takes for the test page to prints.If the test page prints in less than 60 seconds , this is normal print speed and you do not need to troubleshoot.If the test page prints in more than 60 seconds , go to the next step.
Important ;
Some products print faster than others. If the test page exceeds 60 seconds, and other documents you print typically take as long, the print speed is normal. Troubleshoot this issue only if your product is designed to print faster than about 60 seconds a page or if printing is slower than usual.
***** IF THE PRINT SPEED IS MORE THAN 60 SEC.
Check the power supply. to check the power supply you need to follow these steps.
1. Turn the product so that you can access the rear side.
2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product.
3. Remove any devices between the product and the power outlet, such as surge suppressors or power strips.
4. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet.
5. Print and time a self-test again.
If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the power supply. Replace devices between the product and the power outlet, or leave the product connected directly to the wall outlet. If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution.
CHECK THE CARTRIDGE COMPATIBILTY.
Incompatible cartridges can cause the slow printing problem.
Which cartridges you use depends on your country or region. To check the cartridge compatibility you can go to this site (for hp printers) http://www.hp.com/buy/suresupply and check The number on the cartridge label must match the numbers listed on HP SureSupply.
PERFORM A RESET.
1. Press the Power button and turn off the printer.
2. unplug the power cord. Disconnect the data cable(USB,Ethernet depending upon the the product set up). wait for 30 secs. reconnect all the cable and than try to print a test page.
if these steps resolves the issue than you dont need to continue troubleshooting or if the issue persist than Replace the Power supply for your product.

Do pixma Mp610 support duplex printing


The MP610 does support duplex printing.

Duplex Printing
duplex.gif
The duplex printing function allows you to print data on both sides of a sheet of paper.
The procedure for performing duplex printing is as follows:
Performing automatic duplex printing
You can perform the duplex printing without having to turn over the paper.
1. Open the printer driver setup window, check the Duplex Printing check box, and confirm that Automatic is checked.
duplex1.gif
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. When printing a document that has small margins, click Print Area Setup... and set the print area.
When you perform duplex printing, the print area of the document becomes slightly narrower than usual and the document may not fit on one page.
duplex2.gif
sub.gifTo print without reducing the page:
Select Use normal-size printing.
sub.gifTo reduce the page slightly during printing:
Select Use reduced printing.
4. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
5. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
6. Click OK.
Duplex printing will be started.

Performing duplex printing manually
You can perform the duplex printing manually.
1. Check the Duplex Printing check box and uncheck the Automatic check box on the Page Setup tab.
duplex3.gif
2. Select Normal-size Printing (or Fit-to-Page Printing, Scaled Printing or Page Layout Printing) from the Page Layout list.
3. Specify Staple Side.
The printer analyzes the Orientation and Page Layout settings, and automatically selects the best staple position. Check the Staple Side setting. If you want to change the setting, select another value from the list.
4. If necessary, click Specify Margin... and set the Margin width.
5. Click OK.
sub.gifIf a media type other than Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed on one side of a sheet of paper. When printing is complete, reload paper according to the displayed message and then click OK. The document will be printed on the opposite side.
sub.gifIf Photo Paper Plus Double Sided is selected for Media Type on the Main tab:
When you execute print, the document will be printed front and back alternately for one sheet at a time. Load the paper according to the displayed messages.
caution.gif Note sub.gifDuplex Printing is unavailable when:
- A media type other than Plain Paper, Photo Paper Plus Double Sided or Hagaki is selected from the Media Type list.
- Poster Printing is selected from the Page Layout list.
sub.gifWhen Booklet Printing is selected from the Page Layout list, Duplex Printing and Staple Side appear grayed out and are unavailable.
sub.gifAfter printing the front page, there is an ink drying wait time before starting to print the back page (Operation stops temporarily). Do not touch the paper during the time. You can change the Ink Drying Wait Time at Custom Settings on the Maintenance tab of the printer driver.
sub.gifWhen you perform the automatic duplex printing for Hagaki, print an address first and then print your message.
refer.gif Tip sub.gifIf you select Photo Paper Plus Double Sided for Media Type on the Main tab, the Duplex Printing check box on the Page Setup tab is not checked automatically. To perform duplex printing, check the Duplex Printing check box.
sub.gifIf the Media Type dialog box appears when performing borderless printing during duplex printing, select Plain Paper or Photo Paper Plus Double Sided.
sub.gifWhen performing the automatic duplex printing, do not use any plain paper smaller than A5. Also, do not select any type of paper other than Plain Paper, Photo Paper Plus Double Sided or Hagaki at Media Type.
sub.gifPhoto Paper Plus Double Sided is highly recommended for printing photographs on both sides of a page.
sub.gifIf the back side of the paper becomes smudged during duplex printing, perform Bottom Plate Cleaning in the Maintenance tab.

Hi my printer doesn't pull paper from tray1 even if it set to pull paper automatically from tray 1 and 2 inadditon to this it needs manuallly feed papers.


My HP OfficeJet 7310 behaved correctly on the automatice paper feed for a long time and then began to be unable to pick up the page or would grab 2 or 3 pages at once. I was about to spend the $$$ to replace it, maybe $400 at that time. Instead I watched it work again and angin or not work. Noice the 1 inch square piece of cork? I went to Hobby Lobby and for less than $2 bought a roll of very thin cork. I cut an inch square and replaced the one on the machine and it has worked perfectly since. I still have 99% of the cork roll. What it?

Will not Print online Coupos


Just fixed my Brother HL-5140. Hope this helps :) I have struggled for years and finally figured this out from the Brother website.

If you are unable to print coupons from the Internet the print processor
setting in the driver needs to be changed. To change the setting,
1. Open Printers and Faxes.

2. Right mouse click on the Brother printer and left click Properties.

3. Click on the Advanced tab.

4. Click the Print Processor button.

5. Under Print Processor, select WinPrint.

6. Under Default Datatype, make sure RAW is selected. Click OK.

7. Back on the Advanced tab remove the check next to Keep Printed
Documents.

8. Click Apply and OK.

Try printing the coupons again.

Keep Printed Documents


If you have a Brother printer please change the following:

Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes -> Right click on your selected printer and select "properties"

Go to Advanced tab -> Print Processor

Change the settings from "BRMFC" print to "WinPrint" and set default to "raw" and Click Apply

Now go back to uncheck "Keep Printed Documents" and attempt to print the coupon.

I am a big fan of coupons.com, their tech support guy sent me these instructions. Good Luck!!
