Prints "fast draft" only

Hi forum,

the photosmart 7450 can only print "fast draft", in other print modes (fast normal, normal, etc) it stops after feeding the paper and the light turns red.

thanks -

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.

How do I set up my printer defaults to print in draft format and in Black & white. My printer currently prints in Normal and in color.


Select "print" from the "File" menu when the printer dialog box opens select "Properties" then "Printer Shortcuts" go to the "Print Quality" box and select "Fast Draft" now at the top of the window the last tab is "Color", go there and select "Print in Grayscale".

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".

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.

I have it set to print in black only but it uses up the color ink anyway. What gives?


Hi,
On the printer driver, (after click "print" and the menu for selecting the printer appears and you can select the number of copies etc...go to"properties") . Here go to the "Color" tab.. if you truly only want to use black ink, then select "Print in greyscale" and select "Black only". After that just Click "OK" at the bottom and "Ok" to print your job in truly just black ink. :)
Cheers, Ed
