I'm using half of A4 size paper and when I print my file on it, it takes 20 seconds after feeding the paper. Is there anything I can do to make it faster?


I fixed your capitalisation, punctuation and grammar. Half of an A4 sheet is an A5 sheet and should take half as long to print an A4 sheet. Print speed is dependent on a number of variables;
Density of colour, the more colour or more blocks of black take longer. Yours is monochrome and these are the specs. You should get 12 pages per minute. It may be that your computer is slow and also is low on available RAM memory. This is an old printer and you may think about upgrading. I had one of these 10 years ago.

Benefits
  • 12 ppm mono printing
  • Zero warm-up time from sleep mode
  • First Print Out Time in only 9.3 seconds
  • Up to 2400 x 600dpi print resolution
  • Energy efficient and quiet operation
  • Easy to use All-in-One cartridge

You should get 12 pages per minutes

The printer takes a long time to print.


Buy a faster printer.

And, no, I'm not being a smart-aleck

HP rates this printer at up to 32 pages per minute -- in fast draft mode black ink only... But even their ratings show it takes over a minute per page when doing quality printing in color.

And those speed ratings are all "after first page" -- ALL printers take longer for the first page due to the time it takes for the computer to set up the page and process the information.

As the specs suggest, you can get faster printing in black-only instead of color and by choosing fast draft mode instead of quality or normal mode.

There is very little that could be wrong with the printer that would make it print slower than usual -- generally any problem would make it not print at all or cause it to print incorrectly. Generally speaking whatever speed you see is simply the speed of the printer itself based on the settings you have selected, the software you are using, and the speed of your computer.

You can refer to the information on the HP website. It is just possible that replacing the printer driver MIGHT help but other than that there simply isn't much you can do about the speed of this (or any) printer unless you want to choose a lower quality print setting.

I have a lexmark optra sc 1275 I just downloaded the drivers and tried to print but it takes 3 minutes a page. What is wrong?


Probably nothing. This is a very slow 13 year old printer, claiming 7.5 pages per minute for black and .5 ppm for color. Make sure your settings are for black only to get the maximum speed. Even then, manufacturer claims are often high for print speeds, so 3 minutes a page, especially for color, is probably about right.

How many pages per minute on a InfoPrint 1332


The InfoPrint 1332 has a maximum output speed of 35 pages per minute. This speed can be less if you are using thicker paper or paper that's not 8.5" x 11", and other factors can affect the speed as well.

Kyocera printing very slow


Has it always been slow, or is that a recent development? At its fastest, the FS-2000 only prints 31 pages per minute, and that's for regular single-sided 8.5" x 11" with no special requirements. Anything else will (thick paper, longer paper, duplexing, etc.) will slow the print speed down.

One thing you can try to speed up the print speed is to change your spool options in the print driver. Go into the print driver (Control Panel > Printers & Faxes, right click on the FS-2000 and select Properties) and find where the spool options are located. Try selecting different spool options (such as waiting to send the job until all the pages have spooled, or sending it page by page) to see if any of them affect printing speed.

There are other options in the print driver's properties which could affect printing speed as well. Look around the different tabs and try changing some of the options to see if they make any difference.

You can also go to Kyocera.com and download and install the newest version of the print driver, which might speed up processing as well.

Hope that helps!

Laser jet 2430tn printing slow


Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.
