Re: printer slow to respond to print command

I had this issue also. Found it to be a firewall issue.

Norton Internet Security, Vista Home Premium.

I ended up having to create a rule to allow inbound TCP from the laptop on port 135. Fixed it.

ps. Be careful setting up such a rule. Several worms make use of exploits on this port. I was very careful only to allow the laptop to loopback to itself.

Printer sleeps and takes long to wake

This printer is that slow. If it prints, it is functioning normally.
Some jobs, like web-based print or email, are very complex to an entry-level printer, and take longer to process.

You have a cartridge problem.

This condition is typically caused by one of the cartridges failing. Try removing the black cartridge and printing (not copying) a test page. If this prints at near normal speed the black cartridge is at fault and should be replaced. If the printer still prints slowly then put the black cartridge back in and remove the color cartridge, then print a page. Replacing the cartridge that causes the slow printing with a fresh cartridge will resolve the issue.

Five computers networked with Linksys WRT320N router. Operating systems: Win 7.0 on 3 computers (two hardwired)(one laptop - wireless), Snow Leopard 10.8 on 1 (wireless), and XP on one (wireless). Also...

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.
Try installing the latest Wireless card driver on the XP computer and the LAN card drivers on the other computers except the MAC.

How do I overcome extremely slow printing, sometimes from an interface with the computer and sometimes just the printer itself?

On a very high resolution setting, a lot of data has to be transfered and that takes time. Sometimes the program generating the data has to re-sample the data which requires massive math work to resize and pixelate the data.

The printer itself may have to do a lot of crunching of the data.

The idea is to lessen the load on the system. Taking a mega-pixel photo from a camera and selecting very high resolution printing can take several minutes just to print one photo.

My HP 5610 is printing extremely slow.

Very simple solution: The cartridges still have ink in them but printing is very slow. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a wet paper towel and wipe the print head on each one until the ink flows from each head. Usually it is the color cartridge because it is used less than the black one. Once ink is flowing again, reinsert the cartridges into the printer and your normal printing speed will return. This worked for me, no thanks to the "experts" or trouble shooting guides..

All in One Printer/Scanner/Copier will not respond to print command.

Pls make sure that your computer recognizes your Printer, if it doesn't it would never respond to any print command you sent
check to see (if the computer recognizes)
1- go to start then select printer
2- select your desired printer - right click
3- go to properties
4- select print PRINT TEST PAGE
5- check the message on your paper

if it doesnt then you might have installed a wrong driver

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.
