    my hp 5650 is very slow printing - 10 minutes per page. It just started when I replaced the black ink cartridge, but I think that is a coincidence.

My hp 5610 all in one was doing this too and it drove me nuts! at first it resolved itself for a day and then the problem came back. made me think it was a software or driver issue since I had done some work on the computer components but then, after trying all 11 steps (except cartridge replacement) that HP suggested in the online troubleshooter, I tried switching to another set of cartridges (not even new ones OR HP genuine) and, voila, my probelm was solved. my speculations here: the refilled cartridges i was using may have been refilled several times and the electrical contacts were worn out or oxidized. i sure hope this helps someone else out too!

I had the EXACT same problem withe a photosmart 2610. I only print in black so I have no need for color. But it seems this printer will act like this when the color cartridge is bone dry. Replace color with HP95 cartridge and printing normal now. Unbelieveable that HP would force you to buy a color cartridge even though it's never being used.

Slow printing, if caused from the side of the computer, rather than the printer, may be caused by the computer's CPU (main processing chip) being overloaded. I experimented with a program named "Smart Ram" that comes as one of the optional Utilities available through Advnced SystemCare Free, available free (obviously) at

By Clicking the "Go! Deep Clean" button a few times, I freed up considerable RAM, so that 2/3 of my 1.5 MB of RAM (around 1060 KB) is now available, AND CPU usage dropped dramatically from nearly 100% to under 40%, so that the CPU is now available for use in the printing process.

Bottom line, printing speed is now up to normal for my printer, which is quite acceptable. Other RAM Optimizer programs might work as well, but since Smart RAM is available for FREE and works so well, I would not bother with others.

Why does processing job take long?

the print file detail may be multi-layered may be too much information in print job- your printer memory may not be adequate, you may be printing through a slow network, you may be printing through an older print server which is as slow as parallel port printing or you may be printing through your parallel port which is slow.

Printing in color on my Lexmark printer is very slow. This is a wireless printer and is not so slow on black and white printing.

Printing in color is always slow vs. printing in B/W. If your printing color with the highest resolution setting, it will print really slow. You can adjust the resolution settings in Printer Properties for the Lexmark. If you want faster print, select a lower resolution.

It prints really really slow

Expect pictures to print slow no matter what.
For letters and all text documents set your printer up to print draft for the best printing speed.
