Question about Lexmark X364dn All-In-One Laser Printer

Open Question

X364 slow Printing from Mac G5 (running OS X 10.4) is often, but not always, extremely slow (a minute or two for a page, non-complex material). This shows up whether printing from Firefox or other programs, and shows up whether I use the Ethernet or USB ports. Printing to the same X364 from my Mac G4 running OS 9.2 (either USB or Ethernet) is very fast. Printing from the G5 to my Lexmark E260 via Ethernet is also very fast. What could be going on? The X364 is brand new. David M. Sherman, LLB, LLM Tax Lawyer & Author 10 Alexandra Wood Toronto, Ont. M5N 2S1 Tel. 416-781-4622 Fax 416-781-4633

SOURCE: Lexmark T642 Slow Slow Printing

I've had this problem with the Lexmarks's T640 printers connected via USB to Mac OS 10.5.5 machines.

Problem: The Mac OS' default resolution of 1200 DPI for this printer causes the printer to have to rasterize the print job again AFTER it arrives at the printer. The printer does a painfully slow job of this.

Solution: Change the default resolution of your print jobs to "600dpi".


1.)Call up the printer settings menu by starting a print job and clicking the up-arrow next to "Printer" box.

2.)Click on the drop-down list with the name of your application and choose "Printer Features".
Change your resolution to "600dpi". Oddly, I find that "1200dpi Image Quality" is almost as fast.

3.)It might be a good idea to "Save as" this new configuration in the "Presets" menu at the top of your list.

You should notice a tenfold increase in the time it takes the printer to actually produce print jobs now.

Additionally, in the "Color Matching" settings (you can get there by changing from the "Printer Features" settings), be sure that you are using "ColorSync" so your printer isn't having to do any additional processing in that area.

Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

    Hi. Hope you got it working fine now on your Windows 7. If not, go to Start Menu > Devices and Printers > right click on the Lexmark print object > Troubleshoot. Make sure the printer is on and is still connected to the computer via the usb cable.

    Why am I having trouble with facebook not fully loading on my pc

    Could be your browser and/or Mac OS version. The G4s and even G5 Power PC Macs could only run operating systems up to 10.5.8. Minimum OS for running the latest versions of browsers, such as Safari and Firefox is 10.6. under the Intel chipset. Because the old browsers are slow, sites like Facebook and Google do not always support them.
    OS 10.5.8 is more compatible than, let's say OS 10.4.9. Check your OS by going to About This Mac under the apple logo on the left side of the screen. It will tell you what your OS is. Your choices: Upgrade your OS to 10.5.8 or take a giant leap to an Intel Mac and run OS 10.6.8 or later. Eventually your old G4 will not be able to connect to anything because of the browser issues.

    2.1 GHz Power PC G5 running Mac OS X 10.4.11i

    First start with rebooting :) and then repair permissions using Disk Utility. Also good to clean caches using a tool, like Cocktail (or a free utility). Test the hard disk with a utility, if there are errors (or it's too full, i.e more than 90%) this can be a culprit.

    That said, more memory is always good! ;)

    Isight intermittent. G5 Imac 17" The Isight cam I have now dubbed 10sec cam turns off and has to be restarted.

    I understand from your problem statement that the internal iSight camera in your G5 iMac turns itself off around 10 seconds after you turn it on.
    Create a new temporary user in System Preferences / Accounts. Log out and then log in as this user. Enable the camera. Does it still turn off in 10 seconds? If not, something running in your other user account (a startup program or system preference) is interfering with the operation of your camera.
    If you have a spare external drive, install a fresh version of the Mac OS on that drive, then boot from that drive. Does the camera still turn off in 10 seconds? If not, you should run an OS installation with "archive and install" on your internal drive. If it does, you have a hardware problem that requires a Mac tech. If this is indeed a G5 iMac, the repair will likely not be cost-effective.

    HP PSC 2410 printing extremely slow


    Thanks for using FixYa. The maximum speed of the printer is 8 pages per minute, which cannot be exceeded. This speed is measured using "Letter" sized paper. "Letter" is a U.S. standard paper size, which is smaller than European A4. Your print job may be very complex. Try the following:
    • Reduce the complexity of your document (reduce the number of multiple graphics, etc.).
    • Try a different graphics mode setting in the driver, under the finishing tab.
    • Try printing the document at 300 DPI.
    • If system resources are low, try printing with fewer applications running.
    Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

    Printing is very slow

    Try adjusting your printer settings to a lower quality. That will usually speed things up.

    While trying to install OS10.5 and it will attempt to but it freezes, you the Apple booting circle it stops.

    Probably the OS 10.5 version your're installing is not compatible or supported by the system motherboard of your computer model Apple Power Mac G5. per my research from Apple website herewith is their solution quote on what applicable OS to install for such model: "Power Mac G5 (Late 2005) and iMac G5 (iSight) models require Mac OS X 10.4.2 or later, you can t install Final Cut Pro 3.x or earlier versions on these computers. Final Cut Pro 3.x and earlier versions are not supported on any computer running Mac OS X 10.4". best regards
