Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I am running an HP Office Jet Pro 8600 with my Mac using OS 10.4. While the printer will print text documents fast, it is slow when printing webpages, even those that are primarily text. I have been told that I can change a setting so that the machine is not trying to save ink on such files, but don't know where to look or what else to do.

How to fix text from printing unevenly as if the roller was not rolling consistently?


Sorry, I don't have one. Mine was a different problem; incompatibility between my old hp desk jet 5650 and my new Mac Book Pro. Just needed a newer printer!
When something like what you describe happens it is because the cartridge is dry; I change the cartridge.

Laser jet 2430tn printing slow


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.

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".

Instructions:

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.
