Hi, this sound like a driver problem. But then again, it might also be printer cable if you are using the parallel port. I will assume the you are using WinXP and the printer is using parallel or LPT1. Try first to reinstall the driver. The first step would be to download the latest driver for your printer at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=58123&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us. Drivers are OS specific so you have to choose what is appropriate. Switch off/disconnect your printer from your PC. After downloading, remove/delete your old 612c printer (+ drivers). To do this, start, printers & faxes, delete 612c icon. Windows may or may not ask you to also remove related software such as drivers. If asked, answer yes (this is to make sure to your fresh). Reboot (though not necessary but make sure printer is still off/disconnected). Install newly downloaded driver. If it is in a zip file, uncompress in a temporary folder. If it is an executablwe, doublie click. Run the full install, when asked to search for a printer, decline, it will auto install in lpt1. Soon as finished, it may or may not ask you to reboot. Connect and power on your printer. Windows may auto detect new hardware, click cancel. Go to your printer settings and print a test page. Hope this works for you. Good luck.

Slow Printing


it may just be a slow printer head, maybe an upgrade is in order. look on the box for page printing speed.
it may also be that you have the resolution set too high for basic printing. try turning this down slightly.

hope this helps.
