Question about HP Photosmart 2610 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing suddenly slows down for no apparent reason

During the printing of multiple documents -- or even with just the occasional document -- my printer will suddenly print slowly, one line at a time (reminscent of the older slower ink jets).  I have made no changes in print settings, only clicking the print icon most times.  The printer seems to have a mind of its own, as this occurs randomly for no apparent reason.  Otherwise, when working normally, the printer prints very quickly.


I have tried shutting off the printer and even rebooting my computer simultaneously -- essentially giving both devices a "reboot."  This has not always worked, so I suspect something else is the real cause (and solution).

This is more likely a computer issue than a printer issue. The only way to prove it is essentially try the printer on another computer. Preferably one with more RAM and faster CPU.

You could try closing some of the running processes via the Task Manager. This would free up some resources and may help the process.

Printing VERY slow for PDF documents on DP-8045

well if you really needed a pdf printing concern, you may add an option which is Multi Page Description Language Controller Module. the post script printing language will be activated and you won't have to wait for the computer to process the pdf document on a gdi format (microsoft). what's more is that your mac computer can also directly print to the dp-8045.

that's it

Print too slowly

You possibly might have too many other documents open at the same time or you are printing graphics which will slow down the printer. Also the print driver might be outdated so visit this site to see if there is an updated driver.

If you are using a MAC then the issue might be not the right driver so if you are on a MAC see if it is also the latest driver.
