Re: HELP printer is haging up computer

To me, it looks more as a network problem rather than a printer problem. Just to make sure, delete every unused printer drivers from your computer, including the SCX-4521f. Unused printer drivers take up memory and CPU resources of your computer, even if they are not being used. The second common issue on slow computers is an excess of installed fonts. If you have more than 300 fonts installed, you need a cleanup.

Finally, install the SCX-4521 as a local printer only on your computer and print some tests. If they come out at decent speed, get a real computer technician to diagnose your network. If it doesn't, you need to further clean your computer's registry. It is most probably loading drivers, data and files from deleted applications. You can download a very good cleaning utility called Ccleaner on the Internet. Also check for possible virus using Panda or Kapesky antivirus. Good luck.

Hi there,

  1. Open the QuickBooks sample company and try to print the same form or type of form. If it prints successfully, your company data, form template, or customized report may be damaged.
  2. Reopen your company file and try to print an uncustomized (standard/default) form template or non-memorized report. If the issue occurs again, refer to Verifying and rebuilding the QuickBooks company data and then attempt to print again.
  3. If you were printing a batch of forms in QuickBooks, attempt to print a single form. If successful, try printing smaller batches.
  4. If you were able to print from QuickBooks in the past from this company file:
  5. Turn off the printer, restart your computer, and then turn the printer back on.
  6. In QuickBooks, choose File > Printer Setup and check the printer settings for the specific form you're trying to print.
  7. Click Help in this area for more detailed instructions on these settings.
  8. Ensure that you have the latest printer drivers for your printer. Go to the manufacturer's website to download and install the most current drivers.
  9. Replace the QuickBooks Qbprint.qbp file:
  10. Close QuickBooks.
  11. Rename the qbprint.qbp file.
  12. Open QuickBooks and attempt to print again.
  13. If the issue persists, repair the QuickBooks installation.
