Question about HP OfficeJet 6110 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The printer is printing so slowly.

I have the "quality" set on normal, but for some reason it's just chugging along taking a minute or more to print a page. I've had the same problem before but I forget how I fixed it! Can you help?

I think what happens with these printers is Spyware and virus scanners etc... on our own machines remove the odd file..

Try putting the CD in the carriage when you are about to print something. Make sure it does not get stuck on the auto start page. Cancel and leave in carriage. Have found the odd time if the PC is looking for a file it will grab it off of the CD!

My Printer properties - Ports. Have configured mine for two ports Virtual USB and the dot4.... USB. I have enabled bi-directional printing and printer spooling. Enable printer spooling. Ensure start printing immediately is selected. Not sure if this will work but give it a go. Then Printer properties - Advanced - Always available - Spool print docs. so program finishes printing faster - Start printing immediately - Print spooled documents first - Enable advanced printing features.

Not sure if this will work but hope it helps.

Printer has started to slow down to 6-8 minutes to print one photo

Hi Sally. There could be a number of reasons for that happening but here are the most likely causes and their solution. Check the setting for the type of paper and the quality for the printer to use plus the PPI of the image file itself.
Taking the last first, have you changed any settings in your camera - meaning have you perhaps changed the quality to use from say Medium to High? That could change the PPI /Pixels Per Inch) for the image which means a larger files size for the same size image as previously, which in itself means more information for the printer to process as it prints each photo.
When you select to Print - open the PROPERTIES dialogue area and check the settings - for example were you perhaps using the Text & Image, Photo or Best Photo (may be slightly different - I cannot be more specific as you have not mentioned whick model you have but you should be able to see what I mean). Best Photo will take longer than Photo, which itself will take longer than the T&I setting.
Then there is the paper type. Different choices can change how long it takes - so for the least quality, the Plain Paper setting will be the fastest (and could give a decent print, believe it or not IF better paper is actually used).
To permanently change the Default (the one always used) for the printer, go into Control Panel and find the Printers section, right click on the printer icon and select Properties. You can then set what you would like to use every time as your standard setting (the Default) - which you can change for each print job at the time of printing, using the printers Properties facility - which then only applies for that time as the printer, for all future work, will revert back to the Default - so you would change per print job if you have different requirements - for example - even the normal size paper, which is generally always defaulted from installation to A4.
Hope those give you some areas to explore to see where your change has occurred - as it will be due some change along the line - the printer will not, of its own accord, go slower - there has to be a reason for that and it is most likely one or more of the settings shown above.

Why is my plotter suddenly printing slowly?

Sounds like it's been switched from "draft" to "quality" mode. There should be a menu option on the plotter to allow you to change that. You should be able to override that setting in your software, too.

My canon MX882 printer has become VERY slow at printing pictures. Almost undo able

This all comes down to file size of the picture and the quality you are printing in. Check your printer settings and see if you are printing in least, normal or best quality. Also look at the actual size in pixels of the picture you are printing.

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.

HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One InkJet Printer - printing any kind of document, from many formats (docs, pdf, photos) takes more than 15 minutes for one page to print. Tried restarting computer, printer,...

When you click to print something, you will get what's called the Print Dialogue box. Before clicking "OK", click the Properties button.26849353-6c28-4abb-ab9c-b5e445a1b08b.jpgThis will take you to a screen with some tabs. Click on the Paper/Quality tab. Somewhere in that window you will see some options for "Print Quality".

By default, it is probably set to "Normal". That's the middle setting. To save ink, you can set it to Fast Normal (better for ink saving) or Fast Draft (best for ink saving). This means the printer will use less ink to print the page. The final copy will look a little lighter but certainly still readable.

This option "fast draft" will print very fast and also save your ink.

I have a 2410 HP printer and it prints very very very slow. Can you help me? Email address

I have the exact same model of printer, I find that it prints faster if you go into printing preferences and change the print quality to fast draft or fast normal. You can also set the printer directly by pressingcopy twice then press3 for copy quality, then select 3 for fast.
Doing both should produce faster printing for your documents. (NOTE : This will not suggested if you are printiing items that need to have crisp clean printing as the faster it prints the less detailed the printing is.)

The printer settings have not been changed (it is set on "Normal" print), but the printer is suddenly printing very very slowly. The final product is ok, but it takes forever to print a page. Any easy...

another thought, if you have access to the photo on your computer, open it up and see if you can reduce the dpi level to a small file
go to the print page, check to see what the print format is: highest quality, best, normal, normal fast or fast print. this might be the solution too.

The printer prints very slowly all of a sudden. It took over an hour to print out 4 pages. I've unplugged everything. I've cleared the print ques. Same thing is happening when I copy. Help!

If the output quality has improved greatly, you may have selected the "High" quality instead of "Normal". The front panel should give you a clue as to how to adjust.

Print Output Too Slow

It could be your print quality is set too high! Go to Printer and Faxes in Control Panel! Right Click on your printer and select properties On the General Tab click on Printing preferences! Look for something that Says quality or graphics or something like that! If its set to high quality then set it to normal If its set to normal then try draft!( but if you need to do this then there is an underlying issue!) Try this and get back to me! regards, babb
