My HP printer is suddenly printing very slow. This suddenly started happening, and I can't figure out why. It is printing in color, and I can't seem to locate the tool to just make it print b&w. Thanks!

Did you move it to an older and slower USB port?
If you can't find the tool, try to find it in your word processing software.
Which program are you using?

Why did my printing rate suddenly slow down to about 20 Why did my printing rate suddenly drop to about 20 % of normal


Check the print quality settings in the Printer Control Panel. If set to best and color it will slow printing considerably and use ink much quicker. Draft and B&W printing is usually fastest and sips ink compared to other modes.

Sounds like you may have a mechanical problem with the printer itself.

Printer was working fine, suddenly prints very slowly. Tried uninstalling and re-installing. Still slow.


Hi

Thanks for trusting FIXYA for your problems

Its just the cartridge problem and needs to be replaced. Normally its with color cartridge but make sure and replace the faulty and it should be ok.

Align the print cartridges again to make sure its not the reason as this can also cause the printer to print slow.

Printer is too slow to print once the command is given from PC


Hi
While printing from the USB Port sometimes slow printout/data transfer will result in slow printing of print jobs. or The printer might be printing slow , pausing in between print jobs , or intermittent printing. The symptom solution is mention below, read and follow the instruction.

Solution 1

After the printer is installed on the USB Port, check the description under the Ports Tab what is selected. Please refer to the figure below : c00873625.jpg Using the USB/ Virtual Printer Port and DOT4/ HP Laserjet 2420, under the Port/Description Tab printer speed will be as per the standard. Whereas using the DOT4/ Generic IEEE 1284 under Port/Description Tab, Printer speed will be very slow. If DOT4/ Generic IEEE 1284 is selected by default, then you have to uninstall the USB driver from the Device manager and plug in the USB cable again. Then it will detect the printer and USB port with respect to the printer model. Insert the Driver CD as prompted and by default it will select the DOT4 HP LaserJet2420 Port.

Solution 2

  1. Insert the HP LaserJet 2400 print series CD-ROM.
    NOTE: If the HP Software does not automatically start, click Start , Run , and then Browse . Browse to the CD-ROM drive at the top of the window under look in and select Setup.exe .

HP Color LaserJet 2600n Print Queue failure


Sounds like low toner to me. If the printer is connected by USB or parallel cable to one computer, go to that one. Click start-programs-HewlettPackard-HPlaserjet utility. The utility should let you see how much of each toner color remains.
