    I don't think it's a memory problem. The printer had no problem printing a page from Mapquest.com before. Now it prints a few lines, pause, print, pause.....

    My OfficeJet 6110 started doing the same after I tried to print detailed fax forms. I have tried reseting to factory defaults with no improvement. It is also slow with frequent stops when trying to make a copy. So I doubt it is the print driver in Vista.

    I'm having the same problem. It takes about 5 minutes from the time I click "print" until the document comes out. I found these suggestions on the HP website. I'm about to try all on my HP Deskjet 3520.

    In trying to send a 52 page document which is 215k in PDF format, the network printer (\Konicia bizhub 350) takes over 1 hr to receive and print. When I check on the printer status, it indicates it is trying to receive 32MB of information. How is this possible and what can be done to change it?

  • k8t_07 Sep 03, 2008

    My printer has been working fine for over a year now. But I changed the black ink cartridge two days ago, and since then it has been printing extremely slow (15min to print a doc), and multiple copies of the document when I only ask for one.

    slow printing.

  • BlueInks Feb 02, 2009

    I was not having any problems printing, so mine isn't a memory problem. Now, it acts like it is going to print, makes some normal printing noises, gets ready to print and just pauses - for a long time! It can take an hour to get a couple pages of text printed (on normal quality). During the process, it will pause, then print a couple lines normally, then pause again.

When you select your printer from Acrobat you need to click on the advanced tab on the lower left of the print driver window and set it to print as graphic. This will speed up printing dramatically.

If it is a local issue to your printer it is likely that the fuser temperature is set to low. If the fuser temp is set low then it will pause printing in order to maintain a whatever temp it is set at. If you web out to your printer(type in the ip address of your printer) you will find the menu for the printer. Somewhere in there will be the option to increase or decrease the fuser temp. Sometimes it is as obvious as FuserTemp;Higher, HIgh, Normal, Low, Lower. Other times like on the cp2025 color laser i have it is under the extended print modes option, and it is under fusing with the options of; less fusing (-2), less fusing (-1), normal, more fusing(+1), more fusing (+2). however the option is presented on your printer you will want to increase the fuser temp. do it incrementally and see what works best from you. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the spooler dropping packets from your print server. Hope this helps.

My printer is paused and I can't get it to unpause.


Here are the problems due to which a printer gets stuck in pause and ways to fix it:

* Problems
* Reinstall drivers
* Verify Print Spooler service

Problems

There are several problems due to which your printer gets stuck in pause. Driver issues are considered to be one of the major problems as they allow printers to communicate with the Operating System of your PC. When there are problems with Print Spooler, your printer can get stuck in pause.

Reinstall drivers

In order to resolve the problems that occur when your printer get stuck in pause, as a first step, you will have to disconnect the printer and delete the printer from Device Manager. An outdated printer driver will also cause certain problems. Thus, you need to download the appropriate printer driver from manufacturers website and install it on your PC. It is also wise to update the driver frequently.

I have seen this problem before. Basically what is happening is the fuser is losing it's heat. When the printer pauses it is waiting for the fuser to get back up to temperature. The first course of action would be to reinstall the print drivers. This will rule out the communication aspect. Then to replace the Fusing assembly (fuser) and if that doesn't work to replace the Power supply.

If it is the power supply it wouldn't be worth the time or money to repair the printer based on the original cost of the machine.

Slow Printing


it may just be a slow printer head, maybe an upgrade is in order. look on the box for page printing speed.
it may also be that you have the resolution set too high for basic printing. try turning this down slightly.

hope this helps.
