Re: printer takes ages to process
NV RAM and HD To initialize NVRAM 1. Remove any installed accessories (for example, a stapler/stacker). 2. Turn the printer off. 3. Hold down the DOWN ARROW ( ) button, and then turn the printer on. Continue holding down the DOWN ARROW ( ) button until all three printer control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds. 4. Press the UP ARROW ( ) button. 5. Press the PAUSE/RESUME button. The display should show SKIP DISK LOAD. 6. Press the UP ARROW ( ) button until NVRAM INIT is highlighted. 7. Press the SELECT ( ) button. The printer initializes NVRAM and then continues its poweron sequence. Hard-disk initialization CAUTION A hard-disk initialization erases and reformats the printer hard disk. Perform a hard-disk initialization only if an error code on the control panel indicates an EIO disk error. Always try initializing the hard disk before replacing it. NOTE Before performing a hard-disk initialization, print a menu map and a configuration page (see Menu map and Configuration page). Use the information on the configuration page to reset any customer-set printer configuration values that the hard-disk initialization procedure changes. To initialize the hard disk 1. Turn the printer off. 2. Hold down the PAUSE/RESUME button, and then turn the printer on. Continue holding down the PAUSE/RESUME button until all three printer control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds. 3. Press the BACK ARROW ( ) button. The display should show INITIALIZE DISK. 4. Press the SELECT ( ) button. The printer initializes the hard disk and continues its power

Text Cannot Be Edited After It Is Scanned to a Word Processing Program Issue
After scanning into a word-processing program, the text in the original is not editable.
process of changing text from an image to editable text is called
optical character recognition (OCR). Text should automatically be
converted in the OCR process when the Send To destination is a
word-processing program. If it does not, check the items in the
Select Editable Text
as the image type in Scan Settings
. In Windows XP, this setting is automatically selected if Scan Document
is selected in the Director program.
Scan at a resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi) for correct OCR conversion. Check the default resolutions in the Scan Settings
on the Resolution
If portions of the scan are cut off, turn off the Auto Crop
feature in the Scan Settings on the Scanning
tab by clicking to clear the check mark.
text boxes, and spreadsheets might not be editable. The border around
them makes the OCR program read them as images. Readiris OCR, which is
included with the HP Officejet G and K series, can recognize these
images. Instead of selecting the word-processing program in the Send To
list, send the scan to Readiris. Use the Table Drawing tool on the
right side of the window to change the type of image to a table, and
then use the OCR. The text inside of the box should now be editable.
Handwritten messages might not be captured by the OCR process.

The actual issue you will find that its not so much the actual printing part of the process that is slow, its actually the spooling to the printer that takes the time. Does your printer support PostScript printing ? (PostScript is a printing & imaging standard used by many printers) To find out if your printer does indeed support this either refer to your manufacturers documentation or perform a test page and look to see if you have a PostScript enabled option. If your printer does support PostScript, make sure you are using its PostScript printer driver, most of the time we generally use PCL drivers, so simply change this. Regards.... If you find your printer does not support PostScript there are a few other tweaks we can implement to increase printing speed.
Firstly we can force PDF files to be printed as graphics as opposed to text, to do this launch your chosen PDF viewer, select Print > Advanced > Print as image Lower the print resolution, if we lower the print resolution most of the time the difference is very small, but it can reduce the actual print size of the document by up to 300%, which can greatly decrease printing times. Make sure you are using the latest version of any print drivers or your chosen PDF printing program, normally Adobe Acrobat. If the printer only has a small amount of memory if possible add more, if possible install a PostScript SIMM. Check the amount of ram your computer currently has, check memory usage from task manager when printing to ascertain usage
Could be software. I have seen the last several Adobe latest version documents take several seconds to print. I have also seen increased print times with MS office 2003 Powerpoint documents.If it is a single page MS Word or Excel document and u are printing several copies of it, you should turn off the collate feature for printing of that document
file type is probably set to single page. to set the file type to multi page do the following:
1.press the scan button on the op panel
2.select scan setting
3.select file type
4.select multi page multi page to have the entire scan job sent as a single file.
if you are scanning jpeg as file type they will only scan as single page docs only pdf and tiff can be sent as multi page files
Printers try to fit web pages on a single sheet of paper. If you configure the printer, in the print dialog, not to shrink images and text to fit the paper, it will print on multiple sheets of paper, but the correct size for the images and text.
In a Word document, it depends on what font size you have selected. Most people would rather have the web page print on a single sheet, with smaller images and text than were on the monitor; than tape together multiple sheets for 100% size printout.
The pages you scan in are each individual "pictures" which are very different than the text in the everyday word processing file. What you can do is to make a new word processing document and insert each of the scanned pictures into this new document in order. This will allow you to print all the pages in one job by printing the word processing document. As far as I know there is no way to scan all of the pages into one single file.
I don't know the make/model of the printer, but I can mention a few possibilities.
1) If your printer is set for PostScript (PS) language, versus PCL , it normally takes longer to print.
2) If this printer is fairly new, check for old Printers installed that are no longer connected to the computer/network. See if there are still print jobs in the queues. A missing printer with jobs still in queue will keep polling the system and eating up processing time.
3) If this printer is a laser printer, it may have to wake-up and warm-up before printing.
