The printer is taking to long to print....

Whatever the print quality is set to and whatever the document or image is,even test and alignment pages are printing slow. When photocopying without the use of the pc it is also very slow. This problem occured few days ago, before this I was using the printer normally and it was all ok.

thanks a lot for your help.

My workforce 520 printer renders illegible document printing and copying. my alignment page is not sharp either. should i trash it or can it be rehabilitated?


Factory reset, and then clean your printhead with the built in cleaning protocol. Make sure that the print quality on your computer is set to the highest resolution (best DPI) and best quality setting (usually image) that will fix the problem but also significantly increase the ink usage.

Note: using non-standard ink (ie Cartridge World ink or recycled ink cartridges, or refilled cartridges) can lead to poor print quality.

How to Align a Printer Cartridge for a Dell Photo AIO 926Printers capable of producing high quality graphics and photos, like the Dell Photo All-In-One 926 printer, must have their cartridges properly aligned for best results. Typically you only need to align your printer's ink cartridges immediately after replacement. However, if documents show signs of uneven lines the cartridges being out of alignment. After aligning the cartridges print a test page to check print Instructions 1 Load printer paper into the Dell Photo 926 printer 2 Click on the start menu icon, on your computer, with your left mouse button. Left click on "Control Panel." Left click on "Hardware" and then left click on "Printers and Devices." 3 Locate and double left click on the icon for the Dell Photo 926 printer. The printer control window will open. Double left click on the "Adjust Print Options" button. 4 Click on the "Services" tab in the printer's window menu bar. Double left click on the "Align Print Cartridges" button." Left click on "align." Wait for the "Parameter" page to print. 5 Compare the figures on printed parameter page to current settings in the "Align Print Cartridges" window that has popped up on the computer. If the figures on the printed page correspond to the figures displayed in the window the cartridges are in alignment. If the figures on the page do not correspond with the figures in the window you need to set new parameters. Enter the new figures from the printed parameter page into the fields on the align print cartridges window on the computer, as directed by the prompts. 6 Click "Done" or "Okay." Exit out of all menus. Print any document and check the text and or graphics for quality.

Photos come out totally blurred with colors mixed. Happens on all sizes of paper (photo quality).


  1. Make sure that there is letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch Setup on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Self-Test Report . A self-test report prints. Figure 1: Self Test Diagnostic Pagec01154260.png
  5. In the Print Quality Pattern section on the test page, look at the color blocks for any lines. Figure 2: Print Quality Patternc01154261.png
  6. If there is no color bleeding in the Print Quality Pattern color blocks, print a document to determine if the issue has been resolved.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step three. Step three: Check the paper
  • Many papers have printing and non-printing sides. Load the paper with the printing side down.
  • Use the correct paper type for the project. For everyday documents, plain paper works well. For documents with dense printing, such as high-contrast graphics or photographs, use HP Advanced paper for the best results.
  • If these steps do not help, try a different paper. Ink might not bleed as easily on heavier paper. Paper that does not accept ink well is also prone to bleeding and smearing. HP designs its inks and papers to work together.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step four. Step four: Check the printer settings
  1. In the software program you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . The Print window opens.
  2. Make sure that your printer is selected and then click Preferences . The printer Preferences window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab.
  4. The Printing Shortcuts tab lists most printing needs, but you might need to modify some of the options. Options on the Printing Shortcuts tab:
    • General Everyday Printing
    • Photo Printing-Borderless
    • Photo Printing-With White Borders
    • Fast/Economical printing
    • Presentation printing
    • Two-sided (Duplex) Printing

    NOTE: These general printing shortcuts have pre-selected settings.
  5. To change the settings from the ones that are available on the Printing Shortcuts tab, click the Features or Color tab. Options on the Features or Color tab include:
    • Print quality : If you are unhappy with the quality of your printouts, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper type : If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, select it rather than Automatic.
    • Paper size : Make sure this matches your paper.
    • Print in Grayscale : Print a document in shades of gray.
    • Orientation : Specify how the document is positioned on the page.
    • Paper Source : Select the tray that you want to use for printing.
    • Two sided printing : Print on both sides of the paper.
    • Color Management : Specify the color space that the printer will use to interpret image data.
    • Pages per Sheet : Specify the number of pages of the document to print on each sheet.
If you have completed all of these steps and are still experiencing a problem, continue to Step five. Step five: Clean the printhead
NOTE: Do not clean the printhead unnecessarily because this wastes ink and shortens the life of the ink nozzles on the printhead.
  1. Make sure that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
  2. Touch Setup on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Clean Printhead . The HP All-in-One cleans the printhead and prints a test page.
Step six: Service your productIf you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product

My hp printer takes avery long time in printing pages than before


Check that you haven't increased the printing resolution beyond what is sufficient to print your document.

High resolution vs. draft output will cause you to use a lot more ink and will take at least twice as long to print a page because it is likely printing each line at least twice. This is how full color (photo quality) images are printed. If you don't need a photo to be dark, then set your printer to "Standard" or "Draft" settings.

Follow the steps below to perform basic print quality troubleshooting.

1. Check your paper and verify that the all-in-one has clean, white, inkjet-rated or multipurpose paper in it. In many cases copier grade papers or paper specifically for Laser printers should NOT be used. These papers are frequently coated and are not intended for dye-based inks. The paper container should also have a brightness and weight listed on it. Generally speaking, the brighter and heavier the paper, the better the printout will look. HP recommends papers with at least 90 brightness and 75 g/m2 (20 pound) ratings.
2. Verify that the all-in-one is on a firm surface that fully supports its weight and does not move as the all-in-one prints. If the all-in-one is placed on a desk or other surface that is free to move or shake as the all-in-one prints, the printout will not look as good as it should.
3. Refilled or remanufactured print cartridges will often produce inferior results. HP will not support any print problems that result from the use of remanufactured and refilled print cartridges since their quality is not in HP's control. If you are using refilled or remanufactured print cartridges, replace them with a new HP print cartridge.
4. Print a self-test page from the all-in-one to verify that the all-in-one is working correctly. If the self-test prints correctly, go to Step 3. If the page does not print correctly, verify that the ink cartridges have ink in them. Then, unplug the power cord from the all-in-one, wait five seconds, and plug it back in. Contact HP for assistance if a self-test page still will not print. To print a self-test page, follow the step below:
5. Press SETUP (or MENU ) until " Print Report " displays, then press ENTER .
6. Examine the self-test page printed by your all-in-one.

i. If the colors are correct and the text is sharp and clear on the self-test page, the problem is not the all-in-one or the print cartridges. The problem is the print settings, the file being printed, or the program you are printing from. Continue to step 7 below.
ii. If the colors on the demo page are not correct or are missing, review HP document Printed Pages Are Missing One or More Colors but No Error Message Appears (buu02176) (in English).
iii.If the printout is not sharp or clear, skip the remaining steps in this section and review the remaining information in this document.

7. Try printing the document again but try changing the print settings by following these steps:

1. Within the application you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . This will bring up the print screen.
2. Verify that the correct printer is selected and then click Properties .
3. On the Quality tab, verify that the correct paper type is selected, and then change the Print Quality setting to Best . Verify the settings on the remaining tabs are correct and then click OK .
4. Print the file you were trying to print again.

i. If the problem is corrected, the problem was the print settings. There is no need to continue troubleshooting.
ii.If the problem still exists, try printing on different paper.

8. Print a different file or image. If you have a file that printed well in the past, try printing that file. Low quality originals will not print very well. Screen captures and images from the internet are often at around 75 dpi. These images are at too low of a resolution to print well. If the self-test page looks good but your image does not, even after changing the print settings, the problem may be the original file. Cheers!!

I have an HP Color LaserJet 3800 printer. I am trying to print a document and it keeps printing: PCL XL error Subsystem: GEDI Error: MemA L LocError Operator: ReadImage Position: 743


That means that the printer does not have sufficient memory tp [rint the document, if it is a text document (eg word) try to print pages in groups, if it is a different document try the following:
" I receive a 'PCL XL error' on my HP 4100mfp when making a 2 page copy as one page in duplex? Why?
The problem is related to a printer memory problem.

If following parameters are set in the HP 4100mfp you will receive and 'Insufficient Memory" error.
1) In 'COPYING' the 'IMAGE QUALITY' is set to 'BEST'
2) In 'ORIGINALS' the 'CONTENT' is set to 'PHOTO'

Following error message is printed:

PCL XL error

Subsystem: GEDI
Error: InsufficientMemory
Operator: EndSession
Position: 32

The solution is to set 'CONTENT' to 'MIXED' or 'TEXT' or set 'IMAGE QUALITY' to 'NORMAL' or you can add additional memory to the HP 4100mfp. "

Align page message


I have an OfficeJet 5780 and I have to do the alignment also. The allignment page it prints should have instructions on it. Just put it in the scanner and press "Enter". It needs to scan it to align the print heads.

This is from the manual on their website:

The HP Officejet prompts you to align cartridges every time you install or
replace a print cartridge. Aligning the cartridges ensures high-quality output.
To align the print cartridges when prompted:
1 Press Enter on the front panel.
An align cartridges (test pattern) page prints.
2 Load the align cartridges page face down in the ADF between the paperwidth
guides and press the Enter button again.
3 Recycle or discard the page.
