Question about HP LaserJet 2420 Printer
When I go to print something, it takes quite a bit of time for the Print dialog box to show up on my computer to select how many copies I want to print off. After selecting an amount of copies I go over to the print and it says that I must push the checked button to process the job. Then I might print out just the first page. But, it never prints by itself or without pushing the checked button. Please help!
Print a configuration page foung under the information menu of the printer. (Hit the check button, scroll to info menu, hit check button, scroll to print config page, hit check button)
Look at the tray menu area on the page and insure that letter (or the size paper your using) and the type (Plain preferably) is listed for tray 2. Next make sure the tray 1 (manual feed tray) is set to any.
If its not as above, go back into the menu at the printer and scroll down to the "paper handling menu" to set up the trays as above.
Once completed, check to make sure when your printing a document that the size shown on the printdriver side under properies (when you hit file print) says the same.
That should clear any waiting to print issues you have.
For the slow printing issues. Read the configuration page to see what the printer has for memory onboard. If you are using a Jetdirect, addional trys (tray 3 or 4) or duplexing it usually takes more memory. Memory is fairly cheap and can be aquired at www.memory.com for just over wholesale cost.
Hope that helps you.

Note The information in the Properties dialog box varies depending upon the manufacturer of the printer you're using. With some printers, you will see a Layout tab with a Print on both sides option on it. With other printers, you might see a Features tab, and the duplex option might be called something like Two-sided printing. Explore the various tabs in the Properties dialog box until you locate the duplex printing option.
The options will be called something like Long edge (or Flip on long edge) and Short edge (or Flip on short edge). Whether it's better for the paper to be flipped on the short edge or the long edge depends upon the type of publication you're printing. You might need to print a test publication or two to discover which option works best.
