Question about HP Photosmart 3310 Printer

1 Answer

Printing is very slow

The printer is connected wirelessly through network. 2 days ago it just started printing very very slow; about 2 minutes for 1 page that is black and white. The printer printed fast before via wirelessly. The signal of the router is very strong also.

    I'm having a similar problem. However, I am connected via USB and all of a sudden, my printer started printing extremely slow. I am printing color documents but it never took this long before. If I click on the printer icon, it's appears to be spooling and the total size it 96MB. I did have a problem with a virus recently and that seems to be when it started. I've had to run several McAfee scans and Stinger and Spybot also. It seems to have cleared it although I had to manually delete several files. But my printer continues to be extremely slow...Any ideas?

How dow I get an install cd to setup wireless printing


1. Turn on the wireless radio on the printer.
2. On your laptop, open the list of wireless networks that you can connect to. You'll see a network named 'hpsetup'. You'll need to connect to this network. Ignore any security warnings and proceed with the connection.
3. Wait for 1 minute after this is done. Then print a network settings page from the printer. It should have an IP address starting with 169.254. This means that the printer is connected.
4. Click on the Support & Drivers link at the top of this page and download the drivers for the Photosmart C4385, and install it.

3. Press OK at Print Setup Page.

4. Press OK when prompted to Load Paper.

5. Press OK. The network settings page will now print.


Check the Network Card Status, SSID, Trouble Code, TCP/IP Address. SSID should be the name of your wireless network. Otherwise, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings.

After the power went out and came back up the wireless printer is orange and i reinstalled all the drivers on all the laptops, but it wont communicate with the printer lexmark x4650


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Frequently, issues are caused simply by a break in the signal sent from PC to printer or vice versa. Unplugging and re-plugging the printer allows the small amount of on-board memory on the printer to be cleared, with the result that the PC recognizes the machine properly. Programs continuing to run in the background of the operating system (OS) can cause the signal to be lost. Rebooting the PC ends all programs that may be running and makes a 'clean' start, allowing the signal to be detected.
If connection is still not established, try to print the network settings page to determine if your printer is still registered in your wireless network. 1. Press Setup (pattlnk_632008_2048-x4650stup.jpg) on the printer operator panel. 2. Press the right or left arrow button until Network Setup is displayed, and then press(pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg). 3. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg at Print Setup Page. 4. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg when prompted to Load Paper. 5. Press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. The network settings page will now print.
Check the SSID and the IP address on the settings page. If info shows that your printer is no longer registered, you may need to reset the wireless network settings of the printer.
Follow steps 1 & 2 above, 3. Press the right or left arrow button until Reset Network Adapter Defaults is displayed, and then press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. 4. Press the right or left arrow button to display Yes, and then press pattlnk_632008_2052-x4650ok.jpg. 5. Observe the message"Clearing Wireless Settings". The WiFi light will momentarily turn off then lights up solid orange. You can now launch Wireless Configuration Utility or Wireless Setup Assistant (Macintosh) to reconfigure your printer to connect to your network.

Lexmark 4580 wont print even though when installed it prints a test page. do you know of any common problems? running on windows vista


i just set up this printer two days ago - got the wireless indicator to finally go from orange to green (not sure how, it always said it was connected to my network and everything looked good when i had it print a wireless setup page)...
i've got it on a mac OSX and windows vista (the main reason i wanted wireless printing! two laptops in the household) - both are spotty on when the computer will connect and print - more often not than so.
it's driving me crazy, as i haven't had too much time to figure it out myself...

Wireless Connection


I have the same problem and I have exhausted all options that I can think of. Last night I reset the network settings for the printer and started over and at the end, after going through the whole wizard again, it spit out a new network page and looked like the problems were fixed. (was now on channel 11,used to be on 6, also said it was connected to the wireless network when before it said it was not). I got excited thinking it had finally connected, but when I went to print a test page I got the same communication problem error message. I just got off the phone with Lexmark Support and he told me it was most likely printing to the wrong port. When I go to my printers properties page, it is printing to USB001 (Lexmark virtual printer port), and he told me it needs to be on "Lexmark 1400 Series" port. I will try to create a new port tonight and hopefully I have "Lexmark 1400 Series" as an option to choose from.

Jeez this thing is exhausting. I consider myself to be fairly computer savvy and I have wasted 4 nights working on this thing to no avail. How do people who don't know their way around a computer handle wifi printing to the 1420??
