    Printer stops 3-5 seconds between a second copy of same print job. Just switched this printer out from the same model, and didn't have that problem.

    Same problem, send a document from any one of 4 PCs & Macs networked to it and the document takes 20 minutes before it starts to print.

It has nothing to do with your files but with a setting on the copier. Press*utility*user management*number 5 or 6 and make sure to select priority device to printer.

Changing the printer driver setting may improve the print speed.
Highest resolution needs longer data processing, transfer and printing
time. Try the other settings of quality in the printer driver ‘Basic’ tab.
Also, click the ‘Settings’ tab, and make sure you uncheck the
True2Life®.

Borderless printing is slower than normal printing. If you want to print
more quickly, set the Borderless feature off.

SOURCE: Lexmark T642 Slow Slow Printing

I've had this problem with the Lexmarks's T640 printers connected via USB to Mac OS 10.5.5 machines.

Problem: The Mac OS' default resolution of 1200 DPI for this printer causes the printer to have to rasterize the print job again AFTER it arrives at the printer. The printer does a painfully slow job of this.

Solution: Change the default resolution of your print jobs to "600dpi".

Instructions:

1.)Call up the printer settings menu by starting a print job and clicking the up-arrow next to "Printer" box.

2.)Click on the drop-down list with the name of your application and choose "Printer Features".
Change your resolution to "600dpi". Oddly, I find that "1200dpi Image Quality" is almost as fast.

3.)It might be a good idea to "Save as" this new configuration in the "Presets" menu at the top of your list.

You should notice a tenfold increase in the time it takes the printer to actually produce print jobs now.

Additionally, in the "Color Matching" settings (you can get there by changing from the "Printer Features" settings), be sure that you are using "ColorSync" so your printer isn't having to do any additional processing in that area.

Why slow startup (10 min) and slow printing (+ 1 hour)?

Sounds like you may have a mechanical problem with the printer itself.

Printer takes forever to print


How is the printer connected to your computer(s)?
If it is USB or network. Try a different cables.

Does your computer run slow also? Low disk space can cause print jobs to print slowly.

Network issues can cause slow printing as well. If your printer is on network and there is a mismatch of 10/100 Mbps speed or Half/Full duplex, the printing can be slow.

If your OS is Windows, remove the printer from Printers and Faxes. Uninstall the driver package if installed separately. Download the latest drivers and install them and reinstall the printer.

Printer is running very slow


Good day!Try some tests..like replacing power cord,printer cable and reinstall driver..if nothing happens..then try to see if the belt on the assembly is already weak..cause it can slow down your printing..or the film like inside is dirty..if you can open it much better..i

Check the print options and make sure that you have set the printer to start printing while the document is being spooled to the printer.

Most of these printers put the intelligence into the print driver which then spools raw raster data to the printer.

Are you trying to print a very complex page, i.e. pictures and boxes as well as graphics?

You need to change the pickup roller. The rubber dries out and it is not able to pick up the paper quickly. I had this problem with our printer at work. We changed the rollers and its printing like new again.

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.
