Slower printing speed

It was feeding multiple sheets to print and after 3 or so times it stopped doing this, but it prints at half the speed now. i don't mind it, but just wondering if there's some sort of underlying problem that'll rear it's ugly head eventually. what's messed up?

Re: slower printing speed

Multiple sheet feeding in any printer can mean many things. Paper roller blockages and jams, wrong paper for printer, too much paper in. Make sure you check right down the back and inside the unit for anh small blocks. This can then cause errors in the printer itself. As it is now printing but slow, the paer issue could be resoved but you may now have driver errors or pc issues. Are you getting any flashing LED lights. Have you checked to see if device is showing errors or functioning correctly. Go to start menu, control panel, performance/main, system, devices, scroll down to your printer, are there any yellow exclamations? Does it say it is working ok?

I'm using half of A4 size paper and when I print my file on it, it takes 20 seconds after feeding the paper. Is there anything I can do to make it faster?

I fixed your capitalisation, punctuation and grammar. Half of an A4 sheet is an A5 sheet and should take half as long to print an A4 sheet. Print speed is dependent on a number of variables;
Density of colour, the more colour or more blocks of black take longer. Yours is monochrome and these are the specs. You should get 12 pages per minute. It may be that your computer is slow and also is low on available RAM memory. This is an old printer and you may think about upgrading. I had one of these 10 years ago.

  • 12 ppm mono printing
  • Zero warm-up time from sleep mode
  • First Print Out Time in only 9.3 seconds
  • Up to 2400 x 600dpi print resolution
  • Energy efficient and quiet operation
  • Easy to use All-in-One cartridge

I want to print about 20 documents and send the order to printer to do that ,continiously, and paper feed roller always pick up 3 or four sheets at the same time. When I put to print sheet by sheet it...


First off, I would fan the fan the paper (20) sheets without wrinkling them and second,...I would check your print settings to make sure they are set on Normal and not Quick Print.

You can check this by going to Start, Control Panel, Printers, on your printer, select properties, check your print speed there.

Need further assistance, please reply back!

Miss feeds when print multilpe pages

The paper feed solenoid is sticking, it can be seen thru a hole in the back with the door opened. Not easy to get to, but I have been able to bend the stop tab slightly and run just fine.

Page prints half page then jams

I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed throught the printer. The reason for this, in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud

Hp psc 1315 paper jam


. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

Maybe if you hold down the cycle button and let it run through a "test cycle" to receive a printer data sheet it might clear the internal buffer or whatever you call that short term memory these printers have. Let us know. JP

Paper jam light is on

Hi! I have the same issue. The only solution I still use: select print from document with no paper in the hp's feeder. Let the printer go on "paper out" message, now put the paper into the feeder and press the print button on the printer. Success!
