If your HP OfficeJet 8620 is printing slowly, you need to check the basics first. Try out all the techniques listed in this article and fix the slow printing issue with your HP printer.

Check the basics

  • If you have connected your HP OfficeJet Pro 8620 printer and the computer over a wireless network, check whether your Internet connection is stable. If it is not stable, fix that issue in the first place.
  • If you have connected your devices (printer and the computer) via a USB cable, disconnect and reconnect the cable at both ends. If required, replace the cable with a new one.
  • If you see any error code on your printer control panel, fix that issue with the appropriate solutions.

Update your printer driver

  • A printer driver is responsible for the smooth communication between the printer and the computer.
  • When there is a problem with the driver, your printer’s performance will not be that good. In those instances, updating the printer driver can help you fix the issue.
  • So, visit HP’s official website and download the updated printer driver recommended for your OS.
  • Once the download is concluded, install it on your computer by following the instructions.
  • Now, check whether your printer can print at a good pace.

Reinstall the printer driver

  • In most instances, reinstalling the printer driver can help you fix the slow printing issue.
  • To do so, click Start, go to the Device Manager section, and uninstall your printer driver.
  • Reinstall the same printer driver and restart your computer.
  • Now, check whether your printer can perform well.

Check the ink cartridges

  • Check the estimated ink levels of your HP printer. If you find any critically low or empty ink cartridges, replace them with new ones.
  • It is always recommended to use genuine HP cartridges. So, if you are using any third-party ink cartridges, replace them with genuine HP cartridges and then check whether your printer’s performance has improved.

Reset your printer

  • Reset your printer and then check whether it can print well.
