Are you perhaps referring to the color resolution from a print job? have you tried the test print page, to see if there are obvious issues with that?

and here's a good place to get fresh drivers for your printer

I have used last 4 year canon 2900B printer. How to set 300 dpi printing resoluation


Canon PIXMA Manuals MG2900 series Resolution
Resolution The data in the image you have scanned is a collection of dots carrying information about brightness and color. The density of these dots is called "resolution", and resolution will determine the amount of detail your image contains. The unit of resolution is dots per inch (dpi). Dpi is the number of dots per inch (2.5 cm). The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail.

How to Set the Resolution You can set the resolution in Resolution on the (Scanning from a Computer) tab of the Settings dialog.
Appropriate Resolution Settings Set the resolution according to the use of the scanned image.
Item Type Use Color Mode Appropriate Resolution Color photo Copying
(Printing) Color 300 dpi Creating a postcard Color 300 dpi Saving to a computer Color 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Color 150 dpi Black and white photo Saving to a computer Grayscale 300 dpi Using on a website or attaching to e-mail Grayscale 150 dpi Text document (document or magazine) Copying Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 300 dpi Attaching to e-mail Color, Grayscale, or Black and White 150 dpi Scanning text using OCR Color or Grayscale 300 dpi Important
  • If you double the resolution, the data size of the scanned image quadruples. If the file is too large, the processing speed will slow down significantly, and you will experience inconvenience such as lack of memory. Set the minimum required resolution according to the use of the image.
Note
  • When you will be printing the scanned image by enlarging it, scan by setting a higher resolution than the recommended one above.

Printing in color on my Lexmark printer is very slow. This is a wireless printer and is not so slow on black and white printing.


Printing in color is always slow vs. printing in B/W. If your printing color with the highest resolution setting, it will print really slow. You can adjust the resolution settings in Printer Properties for the Lexmark. If you want faster print, select a lower resolution.

I have a hp1280 deskjet printer it is print so much slowly


At its fastest, the Deskjet 1280 only prints at 14 pages per minute, and this number decreases if you print in color, use a higher resolution, or use larger than 8.5" x 11" paper.

To increase print speed, try dropping the print resolution from 600x600 (Best) to 300x600 (Fast), and if you are printing something that doesn't have any color, make sure you select black and white in the print properties, rather than color.

Printer A10922 will only print in black. Color cartridge renewed 1 year ago and has been working well.


  1. Check that your color cartridge/toner is not empty or blocked.
    This is the least likely cause of the problem, but an important check to make. Most color printer drivers and/or software provide functions to verify alignment and color output. Consult your manual or open your printer driver by clicking Start : Settings : Printers and right-click on your printer's icon and select Properties. 'Browse' the Properties dialog for options that perform system checks.
  2. Look for a 'Print only Black and White' option.
    Open your printer driver's Properties dialog (see above) and look for a color option that uses black only. Uncheck it or select an option that enables color. Some color printers have different resolutions for color and black-and-white (usually higher resolution in black-and-white). Some applications (not Origin) will force a printer to use a quality mode that affects this option, and if the resolution is forced to its highest the color output may be disabled.
  3. Enable gray scale printing.
    Some combinations of printers and operating system versions can lead to a miscommunication between Origin and a printer driver. Under these circumstances, Origin may 'think' it is dealing with a black-and-white printer when it is actually using a color printer. Beginning with 6.1, the Origin Print dialog displayed one of two messages depending on the print capabilities read by Origin:
    1. Enable color as gray scale
      This check box displays for color printers
    2. Use simplified colors
      This check box displays for black-and-white printers
    If you are seeing the first checkbox and you are using a color printer, then checking the box should tell Origin to send all color information and let the printer handle any conversions that may come up. In earlier versions of Origin there was a rather cryptic "Print color on black and white printers" checkbox which did the same thing.
