Step 1: Reset the printer Resetting the printer can resolve some types of slow printing issues. Turn the printer on, if it is not already on. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you continue. With the printer turned on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least 60 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the wall outl Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer. Turn on the printer, if it does not automatically turn on. Wait until the printer is idle and silent before you proceed. Try to print. If the issue persists, continue to the next step. Step 2: Check the print driver settings Check the print driver settings. Selecting certain paper types or printing in Best quality can slow print speeds. Print with plain paper in Normal or Draft quality for faster print speeds. Search Windows for printers, and then click Devices and printers in the list of results. Double-click the icon for your printer. Double-click Set Preferences. Find the paper type information. In the Paper type area, make sure Plain Paper is selected. In the Quality Settings area, make sure Draft or Normal are selected. Click OK or Apply to confirm the changes, close the HP printer driver window, and then close the Devices and Printers window. Try to print. If the issue persists, continue to the next step. Step 3: Uninstall the print driver Remove the print driver and software using the Uninstall a program tool in Windows Programs and Features. Uninstalling the print driver allows you to install the latest driver version. If your printer connects to the computer with a USB cable, disconnect the cable from the printer. Search Windows for programs and features, and then click Programs and Features in the list of results. In the list of installed programs, click your HP printer name, and then click Uninstall or Yes. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the software removal. Restart the computer. Regards, Bruce
