Most USB cables are 3-6 ft. long. Longer ones tend to attenuate the signal, but that normally happens when the cable is beyond 15" or 5 meters. Did this just start happening? Try un-installing and re-installing the printer drivers.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!
Thanks, Joe

The USB cable should preferably be no longer than 10 feet or 2 meters. However if that is not an option you can also check the following to help increase speed of your print jobs.

Printing is too slow

Make sure the paper type selected in the printer driver is appropriate for the type of paper loaded in the printer.

For Windows, clear all customized settings and select Text as the Quality Option from your printer driver's Main window.

For Mac OS X, clear all customized settings and select Automatic as the Mode and move the slider to Speed in the Print Settings dialog box from your printer driver's Print dialog box. See the printer driver online help for details.

Close any unnecessary applications.

If you print continuously for an extended period, the paper may temporarily stop feeding or the print head may pause for a while. This is to slow down the printing speed and prevent the printer mechanism from overheating and being damaged. If this happens, you can continue to print, but we recommend stopping and leaving the printer for about thirty minutes with the power on. (The printer does not recover with the power off.) After you restart, the printer will print at normal speed.

Uninstall the printer driver, then reinstall it. For a new driver for your printer and operating system see here.

If you try all of the methods above and cannot solve the problem, try Increasing the Print Speed (For Windows Only):

You can increase print speed by selecting certain settings in the Speed & Progress window. Click the Speed & Progress button on your printer driver's Maintenance window.

The following dialog box appears.

The table below lists the factors affecting print speed.

Print speed Faster Slower

High Speed Copies On Off
Always spool RAW datatype On Off
Page Rendering Mode On Off
Print as Bitmap On Off

Trust this helps to resolve your problem. Please vote.

Got my HP laser jet P1005 plugged into 1 PC prints fine. But 2nd PC is networked to it and it takes ages to print! How can I speed up send PC print job? Both PCs Only ever print single pages.


Well, that really depends upon how you are "networked". Obviously, the primary PC is USB 2.0 connected direct to the printer. When you send a print job, the PC merely starts the print job and sends it to the printer on the fly. The other PC must first spool the entire job, packet it up, send it to the network, then network sends it to the first PC, where it must unpacket it, and send it to the printer. This is definitely going to be slower than a direct connection. And if your network connections are wireless rather than wired, even longer.

Error 49.38.07 printer unable to initialize


49.XXXXX ERROR To continue turn off
then on
A critical firmware error has occurred.

Generally this fault occurs when a corrupt file is in the print queue
to clear fault follow these steps precisley
1. disconnect the net cable / usb cable or any other data cable that the machine is connected to
2. cycle the power with no data connections.
3. your machine should now come to ready.
4. take a copy from the platen glass ( straight forward photocopy)
if this prints out then the fault is down to corrupt data.
if at this point the error 49.xx.xx is still present then order a new formatter.
5. before reconnecting the networks -make sure ALL PRINT QUEUEs are cleared before connection otherwise you'll be back at square one
( print queues are on the computers sending print jobs)
before printing your documents its wise to send a test page through to make sure the printer is still able to understand print commands.
hope this helps...if you still need assistance please call Belmonte office equipment on 01614805556

Will only print maybe one page of a 4 page document and sometimes wont print at all


Below are 3 possible solutions.


Unexpected page breaks occur

Cause Solution

Job has timed out.

Set the Print Timeout to a higher value:



Blank pages

Cause Solution

Toner is low.

Remove the toner cartridge from the printer. Shake the cartridge back and forth several times, and then reinstall it.

Install a new toner cartridge.


Toner cartridge is defective or empty.
Replace the toner cartridge.


Jobs do not print

Cause Solution

Printer is not ready to receive data.

Make sure Ready or Power Saver appears on the display before sending a job to print. Press to return the printer to the Ready state.


Specified output (exit) bin is full. Remove the stack of paper from the output (exit) bin, and then press .


Specified tray is empty. Load media in the tray.


Wrong printer software is installed.

Verify you are using the correct printer software with your printer.

If you are using a USB port, make sure you are running Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista and using Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Vista compatible printer

software.

Cause Solution

Internal print server is not set up properly or is not connected properly.

Verify that you have properly installed the print server and configured the printer for network printing. For more information about installing a network printer, click View User's Guide and Documentation on the Software and

Documentation CD. Copies of the printer software are also available on the Lexmark Web site at www.lexmark.com.


You are using the wrong USB or Ethernet cable, or the cable is not securely connected.

Make sure you are using a recommended cable.
Make sure the connection is secure.

For some reason Lexmark has not posted information for this model. If you need a manual you might try the C534 manual at: http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=en&page=product&productCode=LEXMARK_C534&segment=SUPPORT&userlocale=EN_CA&frompage=null#2

Prints gibberish


First test a different USB cable. A faulty data cable can cause the problem.

Once you are sure the cable is OK, reinstall printer software. A corrupted or wrong printer driver software is common cause for this kind of problem.

You can reinstall software using printer disk, or download from manufacturer website.

Start software setup with printer USB not connected.

Change the USB cable. The cable you are using isn't sending data BACK to the computer that tells the computer that the printer is ready, and you have to reset, Change the USB cable for a NEW one, and then your computer will talk to your printer and vice-versa.

Al-1540 only scans, wont print says-data could not be sent to pri


it seems that the computer was trying to send the data to the printer through the wrong port. i went to the control panel in windows xp, and selected printers and scanners. and added a new printer (manually) as al-1540 cs on usb port 2. it alerted me that the software was not signed, i proceeded anyways. it asked if i wanted to keep the original printer , i said yes. and the test page printed away. so i would suggest people with similar problem to keep adding multiple copies of the printer again and again on usb ports 1,2,3... etc till it prints the test page. use the copy no. indicated in the printed test page to do all your print jobs in the future.

Will not print


Try unplugging the USB cable from the back of the computer, not from the back off the printer. Also, try deleting the printer from/at the printer/fax page and restarting your computer so it will reinstall. In either case, when checking the printer/fax folder, make sure there is nothing pending printing. If there is, click on delete all pending printing jobs. If there is a print job pending and you can not cancell/delete this job, then you must delete the printer icon and restart your computer. Aloha!

Print jobs no longer arrive on printer


try this: make sure you do not have any pending printjobs (cancel all documents if there's one) then delete all printer icons. Reboot the computer then launch the printer server software to locate it. add that network printer & make it your default.

probability is that some of your applications are sending printjobs to the wrong queue (like the one for the USB connection).
