Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer
Printer takes about 1/2 hour to print a document. I've reinstalled the software, drivers, etc to start over cause it worked fine for about a year but now this.
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
Borderless printing is slower than normal printing. If you want to print
more quickly, set the Borderless feature off.

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".
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.
