HP J4680- change copy settings so printouts are fast draft
It's easy to change quality preferences for printing on this all-in-one machine. But I can't figure out how to make the COPY function produce output in "fast draft" quality. Copy function always prints in "best" which is slower and uses more ink per page. Tried HP website & manuals with no joy. Any clues? Thanks!

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.)
Try changing the color quality of your printing under your printing preferences to best to get darker prints.
You might have set your printing quality to fast draft or fast normal.
If you do not know how to go to your printing preferences. Follow these steps.
1. Go to your Printers and Faxes(XP), Printers(Vista), Devices and Printers(Win7)
2. Right Click on Your Printer Icon
3. Click on Printing Preferences
4. On Print Quality, Choose Best.
5. Under Features -- Check the box for Print in Maximum DPI.
Press the Setup Button on Front panel Scroll to Tools Choose Clean Cartridge Let it go thru the process
Try to Print again..
You can go thru the Cartrige Cleaning from HP

Prime cleaning depending on the Quality of Printout
If the Issue
Open Control panel and Printers and Faxes Folder Right click on HP printer icon and Click on Printing Preferences. Check the Quality is set to Draft mode or Normal mode.
Hi, Try setting the printing properties to fast draft or draft. It provides a average quality document faster using less ink. To do this, go to Start->Control Panel and then Printers. Right click on your printer and choose printing preferences. Find the setting for the quality and select Draft or Fast Draft if it is available. Please note that this printer has a rate of 5.36 pages per minute, so even with the draft you will not see much difference.
go to your printer/print settings/preferences adjust your print options there. set your dry time to less. ink usage to less and /or change your print quality to fast normal or draft. in printerpreferences select spool to printer first.
Sometimes Excel 2003 will not print when the quality is set to "Fast Draft". Set the quality to "Fast Normal" or better in Control Panel->Printers->Your Printer Name->Preferences and it will work (at least my HP Deskjet D1455 does).
