Buy a faster printer.

And, no, I'm not being a smart-aleck

HP rates this printer at up to 32 pages per minute -- in fast draft mode black ink only... But even their ratings show it takes over a minute per page when doing quality printing in color.

And those speed ratings are all "after first page" -- ALL printers take longer for the first page due to the time it takes for the computer to set up the page and process the information.

As the specs suggest, you can get faster printing in black-only instead of color and by choosing fast draft mode instead of quality or normal mode.

There is very little that could be wrong with the printer that would make it print slower than usual -- generally any problem would make it not print at all or cause it to print incorrectly. Generally speaking whatever speed you see is simply the speed of the printer itself based on the settings you have selected, the software you are using, and the speed of your computer.

You can refer to the information on the HP website. It is just possible that replacing the printer driver MIGHT help but other than that there simply isn't much you can do about the speed of this (or any) printer unless you want to choose a lower quality print setting.

ONE ROTOR IS SLOW OR SLUGGISH. CAN THIS BE REMEDIED?>


Perhaps you have some pet hair or something wrapped tightly around the shaft. The motor could be faulty, or it could be the drive circuitry. Try swapping the motors around and see if the slow one remains slow in a different spot.

Perhaps was same as my problem.

Call your local service shop. Baby Locks in closets for years often have this problem The manual recommends annual maintenance by a pro, and they will oil the internal lobes of the feed dog apparatus. It cannot be oiled from the outside, nor with covers off, but must be taken apart. If those lobes lose the oil and heat up you will feel "surging" then slowing repeatedly -- fast then slow then fast etc -- until the lobes over heat and sort of weld themselves to that small barrel looking case. So a Baby Lock can sew, then temporarily be sluggish then later slow till sluggish; and at worst, seem to be doing everything right BUT not advancing the cloth -- that's when the worst damage is done and professional repair is needed. In PA might cost $150 to fix. $70 in parts; $80 in labor (2012 prices)
Been there, done that.

My presario v 2000 is very very slow doing anything. In fact while in the garage using battery power it was running like lightning, but when plugged into A/C outlet it is very sluggish. I don't mean...


check the power scheme settings, (control panel power options\power schemes)

you may have a power scheme set for power conservation and cpu speed while running on ac. it should be reversed and run with less battery uisage on battery.

Motor is sluggish, Necchi Model#4795


Set machine to wind the bobbin to check for how fast the machine will run. I believe it will run fast or slow according to how hard you depress the foot control. If it runs fast and slow you have a problem in the machine. Most likely the machine, if turned by hand, is hard to turn and it needs to be professionally serviced. before it is ruined.

Slow heating; sluggish fan; low interior light


The main power supply may have a fault. Also, the HV supply may be weak at the same time.
