"VHT leak detection error of left printhead,
in case of VHT exceeds rated value or falls
below the rated value."
So, error shows left printhead feeding voltage problem. It can be result of fault:
-Carriage relay board;
Low speed of printing can be when printhead have overrange with it temperature; and when printing, printer makes a pauses to cold printhead. More information you can get from file PRINT INF under SERVICE MODE.
If you are a "ordinary user", looks like you can only try to change left printhead (success not guaranted!).
If you observe an INK SYSTEM FAILURE message (or 'Oxc' error) then the permanent PRINTHEAD may be electrically damaged or the printer firmware just needs to be reset via a 'hard power cycle'. (unfortunately the PRINTHEAD is not replaceable; you can verify this by performing the following):

Black printer ink in HP Photosmart may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Hi Did you have any print jobs sent to the printer before replacing the printhead. It seems that the printer is trying to print a job and since the usb cable has been disconnected and reconnected the printer is printing blank pages or misc text.
