    Please Follow the below steps to troubleshoot slow printing in XP:







    1. Press the Power button (
      ) to turn the product on.



    2. Press and hold the Resume button (
      ).



    3. When the product starts printing, release the Resume button (
      ).





    Solution two: Check the power supply

      • If the page prints in
        less than or close to 30 seconds
        , the problem is related to the power supply. Replace devices in
        between the product and the power outlet, or leave the product
        connected directly to the wall outlet.




      • If the page takes
        significantly longer than 30 seconds
        , continue to the next step.



    Solution three: Check the print cartridges







    1. Turn the product on and open the cover to view the print cartridges.



    2. To make sure the cartridges are compatible with the product,

      click here to review the cartridge compatibility chart for your product

      (bpa00585) (in English).

      If the print cartridges are not compatible, or are refilled or remanufactured, replace them with genuine HP cartridges.



    Solution four: Perform a hard reset


    Follow these steps to reset the product.












    1. Turn the power off.


    2. Unplug the power cord and the data cable from the product.


    3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.


    4. Reconnect the power cord to the product and wall outlet, and then turn the power on.


    5. Print a sample page again and check the print speed.







    If the page takes
    significantly longer than 30 seconds
    , continue to the next step.

    Solution five: Clean the electrical contacts on the print cartridges and the print carriage





    1. Gather the following materials:





      • Distilled water (tap water can contain contaminants that can damage the print
        cartridge)


      • Cotton swabs or other soft, lint-free material that will not stick to the electrical contacts


      • Clean sheet of paper




    2. Open the cover on the product.


    3. Wait until the print carriage moves to the center of the product and is
      idle and silent.


    4. Press
      down lightly on the end of the print cartridge to release it, and then
      slide the print cartridge out to remove it. Repeat this step for each
      print cartridge.


    5. Place the print cartridges on a sheet of paper with the copper strips
      facing up.











      CAUTION:


      Do not leave the print cartridges out of the product for more
      than 30 minutes.






    6. Lightly moisten a cotton swab with distilled water and squeeze any excess water from
      the swab.


    7. Gently wipe the print cartridge copper contacts with the cotton swab.




      Figure 1: Ink nozzles and copper contacts on the print cartridge







    1. - Ink nozzles (do not touch)



      2 - Copper contacts













      CAUTION:


      Do not touch the ink nozzles. Doing so results in clogs, ink failure, and bad electrical connections.






    2. Repeat this process until no ink residue or debris appears on the swab.


    3. Unplug the power cord from the product.


    4. Clean the contacts in the print carriage inside the product.




      Figure 2: Electrical contacts inside the product





    1. Either let the contacts sit for ten minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.


    2. Slide
      the print cartridge into the product at a slight upward angle until you
      hear a snap indicating the cartridge is positioned correctly.


    3. Close the cover and plug the power cord back into the product.


    4. Print a sample page again.







    If the page takes
    significantly longer than 30 seconds
    , continue to the next step.




    Solution six: Make sure the correct driver is installed


    The
    driver for your product might need to be updated or reinstalled. The
    automated tool on the HP Web site checks whether the driver for the
    product connected to your computer needs an update. It also makes sure
    that the product is set up correctly. If the product is not set up
    correctly, the tool automatically fixes some issues. The tool also
    updates, uninstalls, or reinstalls the driver if necessary.

    Solution seven: Adjust the print settings

      , and time how long it takes to print.






    If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds, continue to the next step.



    Solution eight: Make sure the computer meets RAM requirements

    Solution nine: Close all unnecessary software applications


    Running
    several software programs at the same time can slow system performance.
    Closing the programs makes these memory resources available for other
    tasks. Use one of the following methods to close any unnecessary
    software programs.




    Method one: Close programs using the Windows taskbar


    If any programs or icons are showing on the taskbar, right-click the button or icon, and then click
    Exit
    or
    Close
    .






    Method two: Close programs using the Task Manager







    1. While holding down the
      Ctrl
      and
      Alt
      keys on the keyboard, press the
      Delete
      key.


      The
      Windows Task Manager
      should open with a list of all running programs. If
      Windows Task Manager
      does not open, click the
      Task Manager
      button.




    2. Select a software program from the
      Applications
      tab and click
      End Task
      to close the program.



    3. Continue closing all open programs.






    Try printing again. If printing is still slow, continue to the next step.



    Solution ten: End any unnecessary background programs and processes


    Programs
    and processes run in the background even when no applications are
    visibly running. Follow these steps to end unnecessary processes and
    programs.






    1. While holding down the
      Ctrl
      and
      Alt
      keys on the keyboard, press the
      Delete
      key.


      The
      Windows Task Manager
      should open with a list of all running programs. If
      Windows Task Manager
      does not open, click the
      Task Manager
      button.




    2. Click the
      Processes
      tab.




    3. Select the process you want to close and click
      End Process
      .




    4. If another window appears indicating that the program has stopped responding, click
      End Task
      .



    5. Continue ending processes.














      NOTE:



      You will not be able to end critical system processes.






    6. Try printing again.





    If printing is still slow, continue to the next step.


  • Priya darshan May 23, 2008

    Slow printing is usually caused by the following software or hardware problems:




    • An ink cartridge needs to be replaced with a new HP cartridge.


    • The cartridge contacts need to be cleaned.


    • The product needs to be reset.


    • The print driver needs to be updated or reinstalled.


    • The settings for print quality and paper type need to be adjusted.


    • The computer does not meet the minimum system requirements for the product.


    • Unnecessary software applications need to be closed to increase RAM.


    • Unnecessary background programs and processes need to be closed to increase RAM.
    I hope i've given you all the details for your problem..

    Goodluck..

My HP Deskjet F4488 printer's cartridge is not working . It slides only


Blocked print head nozzles
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.

My Hp deskjet F4235 is not printing very good. I can barely read what it prints out. My printer is telling me that the ink is full.


You may need to run the maintenance processes such as head cleaning and alignment. It should be one of the tabs under the printer properties. Right click on the printer, choose printer properties, Maintenance. It depends from printer to printer. The alignment most likely is the culprit.
