Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

C6180 printing slow

Hello,
C6180 normally prints less than 20-30 sec /page in color.
However, it often prints very slow ( 2-3 min/page) on the same document.
(a printer head moves slower than normal)
This issue has nothing to do with different application softwares ,the number of pages printed or wired/ wireless.
Please advise.
OS:Vista

    Thank you for the advise.
    However, this phenomenon is observed with the same printed image.( e.g. one page flier)
    It acts like two different printers.
    Once a printer starts printing, dpi never changes until its printing process is done. But I try to print out the same flier at different time, it appears. Both images(normal or slow) printed look alike but a paper with slow speed becomes crinkled due to a lot of ink usage.
    I appreciate if you have some other thoughts.

    I have the same problem. Fast normally but very very slow some times with same type of document. I am using ethernet connection to a network and printing over the network using wi-fi from my Macbook Pro.

This could be from the image you are printing. If you are printing from a computer or memory card, the dpi (dots per inch) may be higher than some.Standard printing is typically 400dpi, and you can change the settings on your computer or the printer directly. Memory cards and some photos from your computer may be 600dpi and will likely take much longer to print since there is more "color information" that it is trying to fill.
Let me know if this helps.

If it is a local issue to your printer it is likely that the fuser temperature is set to low. If the fuser temp is set low then it will pause printing in order to maintain a whatever temp it is set at. If you web out to your printer(type in the ip address of your printer) you will find the menu for the printer. Somewhere in there will be the option to increase or decrease the fuser temp. Sometimes it is as obvious as FuserTemp;Higher, HIgh, Normal, Low, Lower. Other times like on the cp2025 color laser i have it is under the extended print modes option, and it is under fusing with the options of; less fusing (-2), less fusing (-1), normal, more fusing(+1), more fusing (+2). however the option is presented on your printer you will want to increase the fuser temp. do it incrementally and see what works best from you. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the spooler dropping packets from your print server. Hope this helps.

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.

HP C6180 color copies (on plain paper) aren't full color


Here's the official HP solution for what you're experiencing. If you try all the steps suggested and you still have a problem, remember that you can contact HP for warranty support for the cartridges you've purchased - even if your printer is out of warranty.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00721052&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1153494
One thing I'd try first is to print a self-test page. If you print a self-test page and the colors appear normal, you can rule out the iMac as the source of the problem.
The instructions for printing a self-test page are similar to the c7280 shown in the following video.

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.

Hp c6180 prints and copies very slow?


Here are the specs for your printer

Your printer only can print up to 8.2 black pages per minute and only up to 6 color pages per minute. I think you just bought a really slow printer.

My C6180 suddenly takes FOREVER to print a page, even a one-word document which I did as a test. It used to print a page in a couple of seconds,. Now each page takes 30-40+ seconds. Maddening. Help.


You could try the HP support document for your model:

Slow Printing

It is likely that you will need to follow the "Additional Troubleshooting Steps" at the bottom of this page to determine whether the problem is hardware or software related.

DELL 1720 PRINTER PRINTS VERY SLOWLY.


Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to properties..click print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.

Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it ..lol My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!

Extremely slow copying


Cartridges may give a very slow printing if internally damaged, or :
When using colored paper in the all-in-one, printing or copying is slow.This issue is a result of the automatic paper type sensor misreading the colored paper as photo paper. The print out takes longer because the unit is printing in Best mode instead of Normal mode.
  1. Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel .
  2. Double-click Printers and Faxes .
  3. Right-click the appropriate all-in-one, and then click Printing Preferences .
  4. Click the Paper/Quality tab and under Type is: select Plain Paper . This sets the default paper type setting to Plain Paper.
Hope this helps.
