It takes time to convert the text/print material to a language the printer understands. I know what you mean though, it seems as though it's not going to work, then the printer wakes up. Also the heater drum that sets the ink has to warm up as well to be get ready to print.
Epson R230 print slow at PHOTO, very slow at BEST PHOTO, if you do not need photo quality prints try printng at TEXT AND IMAGE for faster printing and the quality is still good. Also try to lower the resolution of that you are about to print, high the resoluton images takes longer time to print. Hope this will help you, Good luck!
Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to properties..click print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.
Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it ..lol My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!
hi it's normal to print slowly u can configure the printing settings to choose the printing qualtiy so if change ur printing quality to draft it will be faster but if u choose the resolution to be higher then the speed of printing will decrease and so on.
Epson's RX620 scans and prints photos at high quality. Text, however, was slow to print and not that good.
multifunction devices fall into two categories: general-purpose models
that are designed for home or small office use, and photo-oriented
devices such as this, aimed more at the enthusiastic amateur snapper.
Because it's a photography-centred device, the RX620 uses dye inks.
On photo paper, these produce more vibrant colours than pigment-based
inks, and a true gloss finish, but on plain paper produce inferior,
less vivid results.
The Stylus Photo RX620 is quite large, and looks dated - but it's
not short of modern photo-printing features. Its built-in memory card
reader is compatible with seven commonly used digital memory formats,
including xD and SmartMedia. Photographers using film will appreciate
the scanner, with its high optical resolution and transparency
On plain paper the RX620's text printing showed bandingand rough outlines on default settings. Our five-page
black-and-white text document took two and a half minutes to print.
Increasing quality settings made it even slower.
We tried realigning the print heads to improve print quality. The
RX620's manual process involves choosing the best-aligned examples from
four rows of 15 patterns. This takes good eyesight, and it can be hard
to choose between similar-looking options. We needn't have bothered -
text remained unchanged.
Photo printing was far better. The RX620 produced some of the best
prints we've seen from a multifunction device, but only at its highest
quality - and slow - setting. Our A4 test picture took 15 minutes 12
seconds to appear.
The RX620's scanner is excellent, previewing an A4 sheet in six
seconds and scanning a 6x4in photo at 600 dots per inch (dpi) in just
14.5 seconds. Negative scan times were reasonable, with a single frame
scanned at 2,400dpi in 1 minute 40 seconds.
The RX620 can perform many advanced functions without being attached
to a computer, and its colour screen has a clear menu system. Prints
can be made directly from memory cards, photo prints or even film.
There are four document copying settings, but results using the default
Text quality are adequate for most office purposes.
The RX620 isn't a brilliant multifunction device. It does many
things well, but its printer is too slow, and simply not good enough on
Please rate my solution after reading it. Thank you
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.
I would like to provide you few workaround steps, you may try to improve the printing speed on the computer.
Delete all the Temporary files:
For Windows XP:
(1) Click Start >> In the Run window, type "%temp%" which opens temporary files folder.
(2) Delete all the files that are listed over there.
If Windows Vista:
(1) Click Start >> Programs >> Accessories >> In the Run window, type "%temp%" and press enter.
(2) Delete all the files listed under temporary files folder.
(1) Click Start >> Printer and Faxes.

(3) Click on Advance Tab.
(4) put a check mark on "Print Directly to printer" option.

Hope this solution would be helpful in resolving the issue that you are experiencing.
