Lexmark E250dn Printer running slow almost half speed?

Check the paper type you have set to print to. I the print thinks it is printing labels or envelopes it will run slower to ensure that it can bond the toner to the page. Also check how complex a print job you are sending. These units do not come stock with that much memory and a complex job (like a detailed photo) will slow them down.

I have a Lexmark x125 printer and it prints at about one page per minute. Why is it printing at such a slow speed?

Lexmark printers depending on the print job are like that by design, Also if your using a USB port below 2.0 that can be the cause.

Most Lexmarks print slower then other major brands, there is basically nothing much you can do about it unless you lower the quality on the printing.

Other issues like out of date printer drivers can cause slow processing so keep that in mind, make sure you have update drivers.

Generally though Lexmark is the slowest printer..

When printing a powerpoint presentation to a lexmark E260, it takes a lot of time to print it. It prints one page, wait for some minutes & then print second page and so on.

Slow printing can happen for a number of different reasons. Lexmark printers are host-based printers.

Please try use the Post Script print driver or Host Based print driver. You may go support. to download this, or may also click the link

Printing in color on my Lexmark printer is very slow. This is a wireless printer and is not so slow on black and white printing.

Printing in color is always slow vs. printing in B/W. If your printing color with the highest resolution setting, it will print really slow. You can adjust the resolution settings in Printer Properties for the Lexmark. If you want faster print, select a lower resolution.

In any mode he is printing to slow. 2 pages per a min. Its lexmark 650n

If the printer resolution is set very high, this can slow printing. So can high resolution input. Is the printer showing any sign of memory loss? Try a test print--it should come out quickly. Good luck!

I have been printing chapters in a book. One chapter will not print. The message on the Lexmark screen is "flushing buffer". does anyone know what this means or why it will not print?

The 'flushing buffer' is most likely due to a corrupt file or file to large for the printer memory. You can check the file size and reduce it. Also you might want to upgrade your memory for the printer. Also might want to check your printer settings if the page you are having trouble printing is different from the other pages printed, such as text & graphics, etc. There is also a possibly of print program incompatibility or Windows OS Patch required but I doubt this since you have printed other pages without any problem. If you need to re-install Lexmark driver: Or, if you need the Lexmark user's guide & reference guide:

A laser prints a whole page at a time, some pictures or pdf's require more memory than is installed on a original machine, you can buy additional memory modules to install on your printer which will allow you to print the entire document. I bought two 1 meg modules for about $50 each and have not had a problem since. Check your user manual or the lexmark web site to make sure that you are getting the right memory. The lexmark memory is about half the size of normal computer memory.
