Re: delayed printing

In your settings, you most likely need to turn off the delay print setting.
You can set printers to hold everything untill a specific time of day to print.
On that particular machine, I am not 100 pecent sure where that setting is. But you should have a menu button to scroll to setting and search for delay print.
You may be able to access it from your computer on printers properties.

I am trying to set up my printer to print both sides of a card but as it prints one side i do not have enough time to put the card back in to print the other is there a way to set up a delay

I doubt you can set a delay. Maybe try only sending a page to the printer, and then putting the paper in the other way up, and then sending the other page. If this works OK - then if you have a run, print off all copies of the one side, and then repeat for the other side.

Alternatively, if you only have the one page in, it should wait until you put the paper back in, to do the other side.

Printing delay

Go in to the printer properties set-up, and change the attribute to print direct to the printer as like they advised. The re-installation of their software will still not change the property settings.

It seems that the computer is first loading an alocated cache or buffer before it will start printing. This is the reason for the delay. By printing direct, you will bypass this buffer. There are some dissadvantages of going direct. One of them is that the computer will take more time to work in programs during a print session. It will share its real time functions with the printer. My preference would be to have the delay and let the printer work by default.

Printing Speed

what interface are you using? sounds like windows is sending the data to the printer as graphics which is much more intence then EPL hence the delay between each label.
