These machines can print slowly for a varity of reasons. First and foremost is using the incorrect driver. The correct driver can be downloaded here:

http://www.usa.canon.com/opd/controller?act=OPDSoftwareAct&fcategoryid=2275&modelid=6349

Also slow printing can be a symtom of a hard drive about to fail (e602 codes).
Fastest printing speeds can be achieved using the following basic assumptions:
1) The copier is printing thru a standard cat5 cable; not thru the parallel port.
2) The network the copier is on is healthy and operating normally.
3) The network settings on the copier are configured correctly.

I am a Canon trained authorized tech on these machines and have been working in the field on the ImageRunner 3300 series since their release. I'm not sure if a ram upgrade is available but I haven't installed one in the six plus years of servicing this machine to fix a slow print problem.

Acribat reader ir 3300 canon printer wery slowprint what is solution


Removing and reinstalling the printer driver will fix most issues such as this.

But if you are finding its just slow for PDF files read on.

If we break down the actual issue you will find that its not so much the actual printing part of the process that is slow, its actually the spooling/converting the document to the printer that takes the time.
Does your printer support PostScript printing ? (PostScript is a printing & imaging standard used by many printers) To find out if your printer does indeed support this either refer to your manufacturers documentation or perform a test page and look to see if you have a PostScript enabled option.

If your printer does support PostScript, make sure you are using its PostScript printer driver, most of the time we generally use PCL drivers, so simply change this.

Firstly we can force PDF files to be printed as graphics as opposed to text, to do this launch your chosen PDF viewer, select Print > Advanced > Print as image

This can also help to increase just about any slow PDF printing issues as it means that a soft font does not have to be created as the file is directly converted to a graphic and then printed as such.

Lower the print resolution (this can be changed from both the Windows print settings and from the printer itself if it has a LCD type panel) If we lower the print resolution most of the time the difference is very small, but it can reduce the actual file print size of the document by up to 300%, which can greatly decrease printing times, especially if your pc or printer does not have lots of memory (RAM)

Make sure you are using the very latest version of any print drivers or your chosen PDF printing program, normally Adobe Acrobat, as this will provide the most stable and efficient platform.

If the printer only has a small amount of memory if possible add more, if possible install a Post Script SI MM.

Our printer usually prints fine but I have two documents that seem to take forever to print. (6 or 7 mins!) Why is this?


If the document contains large images, it could slow down the printing.
In this case to speed up the printing you could increase the RAM in the printer.

Prints PDF documents VERY slowly (4-5) per page

If you find your printer does not support PostScript there are a few other tweaks we can implement to increase printing speed.

Check the amount of ram your computer currently has, check memory usage from task manager when printing to ascertain usage

Large paper printing


12 x 18 is the largest size paper that can be used on this copier. If anything larger is used the machine will jam. The copier uses a series of paper sensors to track and time the paper throughout the printing process. The max is 18 inches anything over that cuase the machine to jam.

Slow printing


try to verify your RAM space or do the following:

Step one: Verifying the amount of RAM
  1. Verify the amount of RAM installed in the computer.
  2. Determine the amount of memory currently in use by background programs or processes.
    Programs/processes will run in the background even when no applications are running. Most of these programs/processes will be indicated by an icon in the lower right corner next to the time.
    Less memory available for applications will result is slower processing time and consequently, printing speed.
    To determine processes running in Windows 2000/XP , do the following:
    1. Press Ctrl , Alt , and Delete simultaneously and then release.
    2. From the Windows Security box, select Task Manager.
    3. Click the Processes tab to view all running processes.
    4. Click the Performance tab to view the total and available amount of memory.
    To determine processes running in Windows 98 , do the following:
    1. Open the Device Manager .
    2. Click the Performance tab.
      The available system resources will display as a percentage.
  3. Turn off unnecessary background processes.
    This will free up system resources and increase printing speed.
    To turn off processes in Windows 98/ME/XP , do the following:
    1. Click Start , Run , and type msconfig .
    2. From the System Configuration Utility, click the Startup tab.
    3. Determine what processes are unnecessary and remove the checkmark those items.


Step two: Verifying the amount of hard drive space Follow the steps below to determine the amount of hard drive space on the main drive.
  1. Open My Computer , right-click the C drive, and then click Properties .
    This will display a chart along with the total hard drive space, used space, and available space.
  2. Verify that there is at least 2-3 GB of hard drive space available.
    The computer will require at least this amount to process printing data for simple text files, more for image files. The lower the amount of available hard drive space, will greater the time to process print data.

Step three: Ensuring the paper sensor is clean and not damaged The all-in-one product paper sensor plays an important role in determining the print speed.
Printing a self-test or demo page will ensure that the paper sensor is in proper working condition. If the page completes in less than 40 seconds, the sensor is working correctly.
Even if the sensor is working correctly, the printer driver might need to have the paper sensor turned off. To turn off the sensor, follow the steps below:
  1. Open the Printer folder, right-click the printer and click Printing Preferences or Properties .
  2. From the Properties box, click the Paper/Quality or Features tab.
  3. Under the Paper Type section, open the menu and select Plain Paper instead of Automatic.
    This will disable the paper sensor and increase the print speed.
