Question about HP - HP Photosmart 8250 printer

1 Answer

Printing is very, very slow

Printer started printing extrmemly slow even with simple black & white documents. I don't think I touched anything, just seemed to happen on its own. I read somewhere to adjust quality to lower which i did and still no improvement

    Thanks. My printer had been printing documents as though it was printing photos. I didn't see the problem (the print screen was set for photo paper instead of standard) until I began to follow your instructions. Figured it out, made the adjustments, and we're back to normal. Thanks a million. L R Willis

Want to print only black and white


Hi,

Printing with only black and white as the primary color would be easy.

First, we would need to know what software are you using for printing.
It can be a black and white picture and/or just a simple word document.
Usually, when you print, there would the "Printer Options" first.
Once there, you would have options to change it to your liking.

If you have some problems. Don't hesitate to leave a comment and I'll get back to you.

Please leave a comment and ratings to help me improve my way of helping people here in fixya.

Have a good one...

Will PIXMA MP640 print with an empty cartridge


No, it will not. I have this printer and last week I ran out of cyan. Even though i only wanted to print black and white documents the printer would not print anything until I replaced the cyan cartridge.

You can Try
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

My HP Officejet 7410 All-in-One Inkjet Printer is doing the following: 1) It prints in color even when the document is black and white (using up the color ink) 2) It prints much more slowly than it did...


go into your driver and change your color preferences to black and white. that way when you want to print color you actually have to tell it to do so. which will save your color ink, and will print much faster. full color printing of a black and white document uses all ink colors except black to make what is called process black.

The black, print quality when printing a document on white paper, is not 100%


Few questions, are you running true Canon Inks and refills are always a off black not a true canon black!

Have you tried doing nozzel check, does the top black squares all come out ok? if so it could be down to the paper and the inks!
if you use 80gsm paper does it print ok?

Hope this helps
