SOURCE: print speed

Items to Check for Slow Printing Issues --> Phaser printers are rated on a page-per-minute basis. This encompasses print engine speed only, and does not take into account processing time or file transfer rates.
Total print time is affected by many factors, some of which are listed below:

  • Image complexity
  • Image size (amount of coverage)
  • Collation from the software application
  • Number of non-resident fonts used
  • Type of port used and network traffic
  • Printer's memory configuration
  • Resolution/print quality settings set at the host or the printer front panel
  • Media type(ie: paper or transparencies)
  • If the printer model supports job pipe-lining
Check the Driver Settings Driver settings may have an impact on total print time. From the platforms listed below, check for correct driver settings.

  • Macintosh: the driver defaults to binary data. This is recommended.
  • Windows 95/98/ME: check printer properties. Under the Postscript tab, click the Advanced button. Ensure the box Use Automatic Data Format is checked. This automatically selects the correct data format for the connection method. note_image33x30.gif Note: The information above applies to printer models prior to the Phaser 850 and Phaser 750. These print drivers have the driver set correctly by default.
  • Windows NT: change the output protocol. The Adobe driver must be installed before changing. Once this driver is installed, go to printer properties and select the Device Settings tab. Locate the selection for Output Protocol and change from ASCII to Binary for a network connection, or from ASCII to BCP for a parallel connection.
Collation Collation from a driver level allows the printer to process a print job once and then print N copies, where N is the number of copies selected by the user (ie 5 sets of a 10 page document = 10 processed pages).
Application collation requires the printer to process every page of the document N times (5 sets of a 10 page document = 50 processed pages). To avoid collating from an application level, ensure the collate box (see figure below) is not checked when in the print dialog box (ie selecting file/print).

uncheck_collate_450x329.gif note_image33x30.gif Note: Always use the latest drivers from the Software and Drivers web site. Once the driver is configured correctly, print speed will be optimized.

SOURCE: Xerox Phaser 8550 Won't Print

I was having the same problem. Turns out the IP address in the printer was incorrect. Once I changed the IP address the printer works just fine through our network again. Find your IP address off your server and follow these steps:

1. Choose Info on display menu, press okay button
2. Choose Info pages, press okay
3. Configuration pages-printer info, press okay
4. IP address should read: Correct IP Address number should be displayed on screen.

If not follow these steps to change it:

1. Find printer setup on display menu, press okay
2. Go to connection setup-press okay
3. Network setup-press okay
4. TCP/IP setup-press okay
5. Auto should show as “Off”
6. TCP/IP should show as “On”
7. DHCP/Boot should show as “Off”

If any of these are not listed on display correctly press ok, reset to either On or Off and then enter correct IP address.

Press okay button and follow steps on display menu to exit back to main menu display screen.

Hi stanz361,

I have been through this frustration,

What you need to do not is follow the below steps :-

Switch off your printer and unplug the power cable and unplug the cable.

Remove all the printer's driver / application that has been installed.

Then restart your system.

When you restart your system , connect the cable back to MAC and then download the latest drivers.

When you do this , try and print a page and this will be the solution for you.

Hope that helps ..: )

How do i connect my wireless printer to the network

Well first off you should have a usb cable that would initially start you off it has to be hooked up via usb first then u can disconnect the usb & use it wireless. U should also have a driver disk & a manual that would help u as well. Also U can go to your computer on desk top & click there & then go to the device manager click on printer or & see if there is a connection from there if not there will be an exclamation point & then u can go to the top of page & click on scan for hardware changes till u see can see the connection if not uninstall and reinstall

This printer is connected to 1 pc via usb and prints via the network from pc 2 and suddenly stopped printing from pc no 3 but still prints from pc 2

If the printer is printing from pc1 that means the usb port is ok. If prints from pc2 that means the network port is ok, so the problem is not in the printer but in PC3. Check connection of pc3 to the network, check the settings, check recently installed programs - especially firewall or new antivirus version. Scan for viruses - there are some blocking traffic. You can even turn the pc3 back in time using the system restore service.
Hope this helps.

My HP deskjet 2050 all-in-one printer only shoots out blank paper and won't print. It used to say there was no paper in it, which there was. It scans & prints just fine - just won't print...

Any error messages on the printer digital screen or the desktop? I take it the "The ink is fine" means that there is ink in the cartridges!

Try a test print via the Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> properties > Print test page.

Prior to past few days printer worked fine. Now it prints a few postcards then gives a print buffer message on printer screen and from there on it prints gobbledy gook. Now it won't even print a test...

Sounds like you cover all the bases. I just wonder if you reset the unit via the service mode?
resetting the printer should have cleared the memory.

Hold down select and return while powering on machine, hold until self test comes up on display then press go, this will get you into service mode.

Run the memory diagnostics.
