Bizhub 250 slow to print files

I have a Bizhub 250 and it is taking forever to print a relatively small file. I am trying to print a single page from an Excel workbook. The workbook as a whole is 3MB. When I go to print the one sheet, it spools the file to 12MB and takes about 30 minutes to print!!?? Is this normal? Can I get around this somehow? I don't want to have to wait 30 mins for a one page print job, that seems a little excessive. The issue only seems to happen with multipage Excel and PDF files. All the rest seem to work just fine.

Thanks for any and all help.

    I ended up stumbling upon the problem. There was an image in the file and to see if it was maybe the culprit I tried to remove it. After several "failed" attempts to remove it I realized that there were 2400 copies of the image on each of the 7 sheets in the workbook. Once I removed all but the one the file size dropped to about 200KB and the file printed immediately. The only explanation I have for this is that they copy the sheets as templates and this copying managed to accumulate all the images.

When you ask to print the page are you asking for more the one copy? If you are there is a collate check button next to the requested sets box, in the print dialog box. Make sure its not check. Collating the print means your PC sends a copy of the file for each requested copy. IE: you print one page and ask for six copies, your PC sends the file six times, one copy of the file for each print requested.

Also because your printing from a windows application IE: Excel you should be using the PCL print driver as apposed to a PostScript print driver. The time it takes to convert the file into PostScript for the printer to process it is time consuming.

On a Konica Bizhub c364e, how do you scan multiple pages and have them show up as separate files in your email or USB?


Go to Scan/Fax option.
choose your destination.
click on scan setting
on right hand side you will find option SINGLE or
SEPARATE/SEPARATION.
If separate or separation is selected/highlighted thats means all page will be scanned in single file.
if not selected then all single page will create separate file..

Extremely slow printing


The printer is an inkjet printer. Inkjet printers are slow printers compared to laser printers.

Also the print speed depends on the size of the document printed.
If it is a large photo or file, it will take longer than small notepad file.

Speed also depends on coverage. A page with a lot of it covered in ink, will take longer than a page which is only coverd in ink on a small part.

Also the print speed depends on computer memory and USB cable. Fast cable and a lot of memory mean fast transmission of data to the printer.
Slow cable and small amount of memory (512Mb, or 256Mb or less) mean slow transmission of data to printer

Time takes WAY too long to print pdf


this machine came with a fairly slow processor and small amount of memory so if the size of the file you are printing is larger than about 1mb it will slow the spool down considerably

BizHub C250 Scanning only single page files


The HDD was not set.  In other words, the machine has to be told in the service menu that is has a HDD.  FYI, you have to reconfigure you scanning afterwards.

Bizhub C 250 stops printing! Hepl please!


Sounds like the controller has crashed.

If you have a Fiery, reboot it and see what happens.

If that does not help you better call a Technician as it may need to be reloaded.

Slow Printing Problem


It sounds like compression has been applied to the PDF.
Are you using the PCL or PS driver?

Is it a 350 or a C350/Fiery. How are you able to see the finsihed size of the file when printed?

If it is a Fiery, try importin g the file directly to identify if it is a software/driver issue.

Slow printing of large pdfs



Sounds like you are just bogging down the Printer's memory.

Your best option is to upgrade the memory.
