Question about Dell Inkjet 720 Printer

1 Answer

Prints only a few pages

My printer will only print a limited number of pages at a time - and what number various without any rhyme or reason. For example, I'm printing a word document (60 pages, but no graphics - just a bit of red lining). When I sent the doc to print as a whole, only the first 5 pages printed. Then as I try to send pages to print in batches of 4-6 pages, sometimes only one page will print, sometimes 2,3 or 4. Once it printed the entire 6 page batch, then in the next batch, only 1, then none. Looking at the content of the pages, I cannot imagine the memory for any given page varies much, so the inconsistency is baffling. I'm printing using the "quick print" setting, and am running Windows Vista.
Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

When printing a powerpoint presentation to a lexmark E260, it takes a lot of time to print it. It prints one page, wait for some minutes & then print second page and so on.


Slow printing can happen for a number of different reasons. Lexmark printers are host-based printers.

Please try use the Post Script print driver or Host Based print driver. You may go support. lexmark.com to download this, or may also click the link http://bit.ly/pYTmwf


For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Prints only blank pages


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Laserjets have limited amount of ram to keep large docs in memory, you can increase the document or in windows have it spool on your machine first.

I doubt it's the copier, sounds more like a application or board problem, my first suggestion would be to re-install the driver. the other would be to target the hard drive or memory/ mother board of the network of the copier

Page overlap


Try changing the range of print in your printers options dialoge box to 1 page at a time only. Typically, by default, printers are set to print ALL pages. Give this a try and see what happens. If it works then the page you are trying to print has spilled over the format limits set on one page by your program. To prove this out try lower the size of the FONT on the page you are trying to print and then see if it still prints more than one page. These steps should help you trouble shoot thsi kind of problem
