USe the Page Setup in the word processor. It is how the word processor uses the printer that matters. There you will find Custom and you can specify the page size.

Hp color Laserjet printer 5550 printing very slow


Please check your paper tray adjustments and verify that the paper type for the tray is set to any type or plain (assuming you are printing on plain paper). In general, if the machine has reason to believe that there is a custom size or special type of media, it prints at half speed.

Do NOT use customized paper. Set your paper tray to LEGAL paper. Set the tray as LEGAL in the printers setup-menu. Make sure you choose LEGAL in the printout-dialog-properties. Then it should work. Good Luck.

Hp laserjet 4350 printing slow down


Look on the left side of the tray. There should be 3 white fingers that stick out. Make sure they aren't broken or out of place. Also slide the paper size lever and make sure they work properly. There is also a custom and standard switch. Try to print out of the MP tray(fold down tray). If it prints normal speed, you probably have a problem with the tray.
