Hp 7660 photosmart printer

My printer slows to a crawl even printing text,I have went through all the troubleshooters ,have uninstalled and reinstalled software and updated software. The quality of the printing is perfect,but to print 20 lines of text takes 1/2 hour.I think the problem might be with the printers physical memory, is there any kind of a fix you can offer me

    When printing text, the printer takes about 15 minutes to print two pages of text.

    I have rebooted the computer, removed temporary files and defragmented the hard drive, turned off and on the printer.

    Printing text takes forever on my 7310xi All in One. Rebooted with negative results. I also attempted to copy multiple pages and the copies only printed out a quarter of the pages.

    My hp Photosmart 7660 is extremely slow as well. It will take about a half hour to print a single page of text.

    The inkjet will make one pass then wait for about a minute before making the next pass.

I have an HP 4215 and I get the same printing response. It takes 30 minutes to print 1 page. How do I clear the memory or speed up the printing?

Photosmart 7660 has 4x6 photo paper in it but it is not loading and out of paper keeps coming on.

Have you loaded paper on correct side or it will not detect the paper. Ensure you have also selected the paper size in the print options menu.

Power light blinks after being green a few seconds, no text on info screen. help! i have a project due.

If cartridge cradle will not move to the left while red light blinking quickly, then it's a hardware malfunction (a known issue) and must be returned to HP. They will only replace while under warranty. I just had this happen with my 7660 and went all through it with tech support. Known issue but they won't fix it. Bad customer service, IMO.

Red text and lines appear in Black text

The red line is indicating a HYPERLINK to the email address of the user name, or other linked text in the Email.

If you are printing a program, you will not be printing anything with a hyperlink, so that should not be an issue.
