Question about HP LaserJet 4050 Printer

1 Answer

Wireless printer is very slow. Finally it starts to print and sometimes only prints about a 1/3 of page instead of whole page. Then I get "can't print, broken pipe" message. I delete and start over and usually it will print. This is very frustrating. I never had any problem with any of the tother HP printers I've had and I've owned three or four of them. Thank you, Maureen Hawkins

The most likely problem is a poor wireless connection. Try moving the printer closer to the wireless router.

Our HP Laserjet P4015N printer prints slow. It prints, stop, prints, stop and so on. It is working from a print server (Windows 2003) and we have update the driver. It might work for a day, but then it...


If it is a local issue to your printer it is likely that the fuser temperature is set to low. If the fuser temp is set low then it will pause printing in order to maintain a whatever temp it is set at. If you web out to your printer(type in the ip address of your printer) you will find the menu for the printer. Somewhere in there will be the option to increase or decrease the fuser temp. Sometimes it is as obvious as FuserTemp;Higher, HIgh, Normal, Low, Lower. Other times like on the cp2025 color laser i have it is under the extended print modes option, and it is under fusing with the options of; less fusing (-2), less fusing (-1), normal, more fusing(+1), more fusing (+2). however the option is presented on your printer you will want to increase the fuser temp. do it incrementally and see what works best from you. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the spooler dropping packets from your print server. Hope this helps.

Slow Printing


it may just be a slow printer head, maybe an upgrade is in order. look on the box for page printing speed.
it may also be that you have the resolution set too high for basic printing. try turning this down slightly.

hope this helps.

Brother 5250


I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  2. Hint
  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).

    Extremely slow copying


    Cartridges may give a very slow printing if internally damaged, or :
    When using colored paper in the all-in-one, printing or copying is slow.This issue is a result of the automatic paper type sensor misreading the colored paper as photo paper. The print out takes longer because the unit is printing in Best mode instead of Normal mode.
    1. Click Start , point to Settings , and then click Control Panel .
    2. Double-click Printers and Faxes .
    3. Right-click the appropriate all-in-one, and then click Printing Preferences .
    4. Click the Paper/Quality tab and under Type is: select Plain Paper . This sets the default paper type setting to Plain Paper.
    Hope this helps.

    Check the print processor settings in the advanced tab of the printer properties. This should be set to Winprint, and not anything else.
