While it never hurts to update to the newest driver. If you did your same install, with the same software, and only have a problem now...I would definently look at system performance before blaming the driver or printer software.

The lower end HP/Compaq computers tend to come with a lot of software pre-loaded on them and are often memory (Ram) deficient. Personally I believe this is a marketing tactic to increase the performance discrepancy between their lower end and higher end machines on the floor. But regardless, no matter how fast your processor is you won't run very fast with 256-512 MB Ram or a lot of bloat-ware.

It's worth noting that if your OS changed, Win2K to XP, XP to Vista. YOu system requirements also jumped substancially.

The device will only print one page at a time.


The usual 2 culprits are this:

1. Not enough memory in printer for the complex document that you are printing.
2. Newer version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed but old printer driver installed. Updating your printer driver from the Brother Website will often improve printing performance dramatically.

My printer prints email etc. but will not print anything from my computer...example: word documents


I assume you mean that you can print from Outlook or other e-mail program (Outlook Express, LiveMail, Thunderbird). Are you reading your e-mail on the same computer that can't print Word documents?

If yes, one thing to try is to change the font on the Word document. For some reason, certain fonts just do not work. (Most often it is an issue with a document (or template) created on a different computer (or before upgrading the OS) and the font info gets scrambled in the transfer.) Just select all (control-A or Edit, Select All) and choose a new font. If the document has multiple fonts, do not use select all but highlight the sections separately and change the font.

If it is a different computer, check that the network is active and that all the correct drivers are installed. (One thing to check is a Universal Print Driver (UPD) software needs both the 32 and 64 bit drivers if the network has a mix of OS's. This comes up when the printer is attached to one computer and it serves as the print server.)

My HP 5610 is printing extremely slow.


Very simple solution: The cartridges still have ink in them but printing is very slow. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a wet paper towel and wipe the print head on each one until the ink flows from each head. Usually it is the color cartridge because it is used less than the black one. Once ink is flowing again, reinsert the cartridges into the printer and your normal printing speed will return. This worked for me, no thanks to the "experts" or trouble shooting guides..

Print too slowly


You possibly might have too many other documents open at the same time or you are printing graphics which will slow down the printer. Also the print driver might be outdated so visit this site to see if there is an updated driver.

If you are using a MAC then the issue might be not the right driver so if you are on a MAC see if it is also the latest driver.

HP Laserjet 1200 prints pdf documents slow


I had the same problem for printing pdf documents too slow with HP Laserjet 1200 :

Here's the fix: Open a pdf document go to File > Print> Advanced> check the box Print as image, use 300 DPI...that should do it.

Laser jet 2430tn printing slow


Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.

Slow Printing under Adobe CS3 in OS X 10.4 environment


I had the same issue with 3 users and was able to solve it with a really easy fix. Set the dock to hide itself. I know it sounds weird, but there's a new print progress bar added to the CS3 icons, and that seems to be where the problem is caused. I'm assuming you have an Intel Mac?
