Question about HP Color LaserJet 3500 Printer
Printing at half speed - (intermittant but mostly slow)
I have tried a Cold Reset and replaced DC Controller also disconnected
formatter board and still has problem on engine test.
Nothing seems tight and no error codes.
Any ideas ?????
Tried what TRANSCORP99 said, can't quickly determine how to reach and clean media sensor. Try this...worked for me...
On the printer...go to Menu

ITS THE MEDIA SENSOR. DOWN AT BOTTOM, IN FRONT, WHERE PAPER FIRST ENTERS THE MACHINE FROM THE TRAY, THERE ARE SOME SENSORS. JAM, PAPER SIZE + MEDIA. THE MEDIA SENSOR CHECKS EACH PAGE ON THE FLY, TO SEE IF IT IS A TRANSPARENCY, AND SLOWS DOWN DRIVE, NO MATTER WHAT THE PREVIOUS SETTINGS. THE SENSOR IS DIRTY. CAREFULLY FIGURE OUT HOW TO LIFT UP THE BLACK PLASTIC PAPER GUIDES PARTWAY, ITS A PAIN, AND MAKE SURE ALL OPTICAL SENSORS AND ANY SURFACES THEY "LOOK AT" ARE CLEAN. USE SOME CANNED AIR TOO. WONT HURT.

It's just past the registration rollers, under the black cover

The fuser is on it's way out, the problem is it's not getting hot enough quickly enough which is why the print cycle slows, but not give an error.
