HP Photosmart 7760 Slooooow print

My printer works, but prints super slow. It ends ups printing 1 line every 2-3 minutes. It takes an hour or more for one picture at 4x6. I reset the factory default and still nothing. I don't have the printer connected to the printer yet, and am running straight from a memory card. Any suggestions?

    That was it! Just a faulty Tri-Color. Thanks for the Fix!

    THANK YOU ! I spent several hours trying to fix this same problem -- unplugged, shut down, changed USB ports, etc. Nothing worked. Then I just Googled HP Photosmart 7760 and stumbled upon this website and recommended tip of changing the color ink cartridge. I first just removed it and tried to print an e-mail using just the black cartridge -- VOILA, it printed! So I put in a new color cartridge and everything is back to normal.

    Who knew it would be so simple a solution; next time it happens, I'll start with the ink cartridges!

I had the same problem and it turned out to be a faulty tricolor printer cartridge. I changed my cartridge and it worked normally. I hope this helps!

Comment:
I've had this printer for over a year now. I have it set up wirelessly connected to my network. The biggest problem I have is that I have 3 computers in the household and sometimes, for whatever reason, this printer will not realize it is done printing from the last job and will continue to think that it is working. So, when you go to print to it from another computer, you get the Another computer is using the printer. Please wait. This will continue until you go and turn the printer off and wait for the insanely long turning off cycle, then turn it back on. <br /><br />Once you do get it working, it gives you great output for both text and photos. I have been doing a lot of scanning old black and white family negatives and printing them, and my family members thought the prints were from a photo lab. <br /><br />Bottom line: if you want excellent output and have a tolerance for quirky connections, you will be OK with this. If, like my wife, you just want it to work like an appliance, and find the locking up infuriating, I would not recommend it.

Comment:
As rated by CU, it produces very nice photo prints. Text quality is also good when set on standard but not so good on fast. It takes it's time to get started when you send it something to print, whirring and clicking for a good minute before anything actually prints. My main complaint is paper handling. I sometimes print mailing labels from sheets. My previous printer, an HP 7560, would accept a sheet with an upward curled front lip. The Canon iP7220 either doesn't accept it or jams up solidly.

Comment:
Tried brochure paper and spent two days trying to get color right. Used glossy and matte photo paper for great print results, mostly. color shifted for no apparent reason. First batch of matte paper worked great, others jammed every 2-5 sheets. Will not pick up matte paper sometimes, gets worse the more I try.

My 4x6 prints are not centered on paper


That printer can't print borderless on 4x6 photo paper, you should use A4 size paper, print and cut the pictures.

Instructions on printing a 4 x 6 card or photo on my HP 4280 All in One printer. How to I set up the printer?


At the printer:
1. Remove any paper from the input tray
2. Put a few sheets of 4x6 (10 or so) in the same tray
3. Adjust the paper holder bar so that the 4x6 paper stays straight in place. The holder bar was holding the 8x11 paper in place.

On the computer:
Open a picture
Seect [File] [Print]
Select the photo printer from the list
Cick on [Preferences]
See the paper type? select photo paper
See the paper size? Select 4x6

Page printing


If the dimensions of the picture your trying to print are not in a 2:3 ratio (same ratio as 4 x 6), it cannot fill the entire 4 x 6 area without distorting the image, i.e., you would have to "stretch" the dimension which has white margins right now to fill the paper. To print an undistorted borderless image, you will have to "crop" the picture so that the remaining dimensions are in a 2:3 ratio.

ALL functions running in super slow motion


Have you tried doing a total uninstall of the HP software, then going to the HP website and downloading and installing the PRINTER DRIVER ONLY, instead of the full software bundle.
