HP Photosmart 7760 Slooooow print

My printer works, but prints super slow. It ends ups printing 1 line every 2-3 minutes. It takes an hour or more for one picture at 4x6. I reset the factory default and still nothing. I don't have the printer connected to the printer yet, and am running straight from a memory card. Any suggestions?

    That was it! Just a faulty Tri-Color. Thanks for the Fix!

    THANK YOU ! I spent several hours trying to fix this same problem -- unplugged, shut down, changed USB ports, etc. Nothing worked. Then I just Googled HP Photosmart 7760 and stumbled upon this website and recommended tip of changing the color ink cartridge. I first just removed it and tried to print an e-mail using just the black cartridge -- VOILA, it printed! So I put in a new color cartridge and everything is back to normal.

    Who knew it would be so simple a solution; next time it happens, I'll start with the ink cartridges!

I love my hp 7760. I have had it for several years now without a single problem. However, lately when I print photos an 1/8 inch line prints across the entire 8x10 page. The colors in this line are green,...

It sounds like you possibly need a new print head for the printer. You should contact HP and see if they know about this and what they'd charge for a new print head to send to you. Might be cheaper to find a new one on Ebay or another HP model.

My PhotoSmart 7760 will not print; the computer cannot find it.

hi! welcome to fixya!
try these! (step 1. go to control panel then select printer, then select your printer model and select it as your default printer)
then restart (be sure your printer model display on its printer list)

after restarting if the problem is still the same nothing else to do but to delete or uninstall your printer driver and then reinstall it again, be sure that the driver matches your printer model.
then go to control panel, select printer, right click your printer model the select properties, then try test print. if it printed meaning you've done it correctly. that's it and have nice day!

Slow printing

Even though the printer doesn't call for new ink, remove or replace the color cartridge. First I removed the color and the test page printed at full speed. I then put in a new color cartridge and it again worked full speed. I believe the problem was somewhere in the half used color cartridge. Hope this solves your problem.

Printer too slow

Sounds like you might have the wrong, or old drivers loaded.
Go to the HP site and download and install the latest drivers for your printer.

ALL functions running in super slow motion

Have you tried doing a total uninstall of the HP software, then going to the HP website and downloading and installing the PRINTER DRIVER ONLY, instead of the full software bundle.
