When printing several pages, after the first print, there is then a delay of up to 5 minutes to print the next , then the same to print the next and so on. I know they all go into a queue,but dont understand why the long delay between each sheet. Please help. its driving me crazy ! Thanks.
Power the printer on then unplug the power lead. PLug the power kead back in while pressing OK and Cancel. Hold the buttons down until the printer turns off. Unplug the power lead for 30 seconds. Plug the lead back in and run through the set up process and try again

Usually it is easyer to unplug the printer uninstall everything restart the computer and reinstall the printer ad driver rather than trying to find what the problem is ,
Make sure you read and follow Every Step provcedure of the installation process
Since you did not specify the operating system of your computer, I assumed that you are using Windows.
Slow printing can happen for a lot of reasons, please try to use the Host-Based or Post Script print driver (not universal). You may download this from support.lexmark.com For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.
Do a L3 Uninstall first for the previous software. But Before Doing so, download the updated software first.

Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document
I'M USING MY BJC 80 ON A PACKARD BELL M35-U-57, VISTA HOME BASIC. CONNECTED THE PRINTER WITH A GENERIC USB-PARALELL CABLE, NO DRIVER. FIRST HAD THOSE 5 TO 7 MINUTES DELAYS FOR PRINTING. WENT TO THE PRINTERS "PROPERTIES", "ADVANCED OPTIONS" AND TICKED "PRINT DIRECTLY", IN THE "PORTS" SECTION I DISABLED "BIDERECTIONAL PORT". IT'S WORKING SWEET. NO MATTER THE QUALITY. ANY COMMENT OR SUGESTION: firstname.lastname@example.org
Printer delay can mean a few issues. You may be up to date on your windows, but sometimes this can actually be the issue. I would try updating the actual drivers at the canon website for your printer, and check your drivers are functioning properly first by going to start, control panel, main and per, printers, hardware, drivers. Check for error messages. Sometimes you can repair to fix errors if any. Also run antispyware and virus controls to eliminate these too. I had some malicious spyware that wiped my friends driver for her canon pixma clean off her pc!!! Check all printer settings too in case it is accidentally set to pause after first job.
