Question about Konica Minolta bizhub C250 All-In-One Laser Printer

Scanning large documents to PDF takes a long time

We are currently scanning a lot of historic documents through our C250. The scanner is configured to output a PDF onto a network drive. This works well with small files but can start to really struggle when we start to reach about 100-150 pages.

Typically a 50 page document will take about a minute from the time it stops scanning the batch to appear in the network drive. Yesterday I had a 700 page document take 4 1/2 hours. And this morning we had a 170 page document take 4 hours (before I deleted it).

The Job List shows the scanned documents sitting in the "transferring" status. This makes it sound like a network issue but I don't think it is. If it was it would be a uniform delay depending on the size of the document. The delay we are experiencing is almost exponential.

Any ideas?

I can only assume it's something to do with the printer memory or software it uses to create pdf's.

Check the read/write for the hard drive and check memory in service mode.
You can also change the scanning method to compact pdf.
700 pages is a whole lot to scan at one time
Is your network running at 10 or 100 bps?

Horizontal lines on photocopies made but no lines appear when document document is printed.


Hi there, As it sounds its a dirty scanning glass. Open the top of the scanner so that you can see the scanning glass.. If your standing in front of it you will see on the left hand side a strip of thinner glass.. Take a damp cloth (better cloth with spirits/surgical alcohol) and clean the both the small and the large scanning glass. These lines normally cause if the glass is dirty. Especially if your using the document Feeder. As a lot of time wet ink or typex or correction fluid gets stuck on glass which will cause these lines.
Hope it helps
Regards,

    Microtek scanner freezes when scanning large documents.


    Try scanning using Scanwizard instead of using directly in Photoshop. If it freezes again, it might be some problem with your system since there's no indication of hardware conflict. Additional info like Microtek scanner model name and current Windows version. Normally, Adobe wont have any problem regardless the scanner model, as long the appropriate driver installed.

    SCANNING IS VERY SLOW


    Absent additional information like scanner, pc, size of document being scanned etc., try to reduce the resolution of the document being scanned. Large documents at high resolution require a lot of disk space, and room to cache the scan until complete. Low disk space can be an issue as well.
