Question about Konica Minolta bizhub 350 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Slow Printing Problem

We have a Konica 350 Bizhub as a network printer. When a small PDF file is sent to the printer, i.e. 215KB, the printer takes 30 seconds or more to receive and print one page. When the printer status is checked, the file size being transmitted appears to be tremendously larger than the original file submitted for printing, i.e. the 215KB has increased to 32MB. Any idea as to what could be happening and any suggestions on how to resolve the problem? Help!

    Kevin, the unit is a 350 and the PCL driver is being used. When I send the file to be printed it takes several minutes for the first page to print. After that it takes a minimum of 30 seconds to print a page. A printer icon is in the tray and when it is clicked on a printer status window appears and indicates data is being transmitted and indicates the amount of data that has been or is being transmitted and how much the file contains, i.e. 8.2MB/32MB. The first number is constantly updating although at a rather slow rate.

It sounds like compression has been applied to the PDF.
Are you using the PCL or PS driver?

Is it a 350 or a C350/Fiery. How are you able to see the finsihed size of the file when printed?

If it is a Fiery, try importin g the file directly to identify if it is a software/driver issue.

Hi! I just bought a Konica Minolta Bizhub C350 that prints very slowly. It takes 30-40minutes to print a pdf document of 2.12MB (20pages). I have already checked the pdf/printer options and it seems ok....


the Konica Minolta Bizhub C350 is by nature a slow printing machine the standard memory that the machine comes with is only 256mb and it can only be upgraded to 512mb . but there are some things you can do to help speed it up a little.
touch the utility/counter button
touch admin setting on the touchscreen
enter the admin password
touch system setting
touch output setting
touch print/fax output settings
touch print
select between page print and batch print=select page print
exit all the way out of admin mode then reboot the copier
tests have shown that this changed a print job from taking a little over 2 minutes to taking about 9 seconds to start printing keep in mind this is definately not the fastest printing machine on the market hope this helps thanks for using fixya

Time takes WAY too long to print pdf


this machine came with a fairly slow processor and small amount of memory so if the size of the file you are printing is larger than about 1mb it will slow the spool down considerably

Bizhub 250 slow to print files


When you ask to print the page are you asking for more the one copy? If you are there is a collate check button next to the requested sets box, in the print dialog box. Make sure its not check. Collating the print means your PC sends a copy of the file for each requested copy. IE: you print one page and ask for six copies, your PC sends the file six times, one copy of the file for each print requested.

Also because your printing from a windows application IE: Excel you should be using the PCL print driver as apposed to a PostScript print driver. The time it takes to convert the file into PostScript for the printer to process it is time consuming.

Slow printing of large pdfs



Sounds like you are just bogging down the Printer's memory.

Your best option is to upgrade the memory.
