Question about HP LaserJet 2430dtn Printer
My hp laser jet printer 2430tn was printing very fast without hesitation (like a machine gun). I just purchased a new computer and set it up just like all my other computers. My HP laser jet now prints very slow. When I print a job it takes about 5 seconds to start, then it pops out one page and then pauses for about 2 seconds then begins printing fast for approximately 4 pages then slows down again. I'm printing the same amount of text that I printed in the past. I'm using a PC computer "fujistsu lifebook E series(not a mac) and I'm connected with a 2.0 USB connection. I'm also using standard copy paper and printing full pages of text only.
Thank You in advance Carlos Estrada
Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.

Tips for a great answer:
Your printer has an cable/wired ethernet connection. To use it wirelessly, you need to purchase a wirless print server from HP.
