If you are printing from newer versions of Adobe Acrobat (version 8 or newer) the standard memory on this printer is inadequate to provide reasonable print speeds. Try upgrading the printer memory, it will have one slot open on the mainboard to install memory in.

How can i print multiple copies of the same document with 3 pages and have the printer staple the copies in the correct groups?


In the print driver you should have the option to collate, you need to make sure that that option is on, and when you go to send the print job, you need to make sure that you adjust the finishing options in the driver to tell it to staple.

When I print a one page document, tray 1 prints on multiple papers at a time. 1 page prints on 5 pages.


If you don't have a manual, you can find one here

My guess is either on the printer or the driver. Skimming the manual, it doesn't seem that you can set the default number of pages printed per sent print job on the printer, but that is something I would look into. This is a nice office printer, perhaps the printer is set to print multiple copies of everything it is sent. You could determine if it is the printer or driver/computer by printing to it from another computer.

If it is the computer, go into the control panel and select the properties for this printer. In there, check if the number of copies is improperly set to 5. This would happen for every print job sent from this system.

Does it print 5 copies of documents sent from different programs (i.e. Web Page, Word, Excel)? Quite possibly, one time you set it to print 5 copies and that application retained that as default. In that application, rather than clicking "print" click "printer setup" and look through the settings to see if it is requesting multiple copies.

I am 95% sure one of these three solutions will solve your problem.

How do I use my printer as a duplex for making copies on both sides? Thanks Roxanne


The printer does not support duplex coping. If you want to do manual duplex copying, you can make a copy of the first page.
Then reinsert the paper upside down in the manual tray or paper tray, fil the page on the document feeder and make the back copy.

It takes 30 minutes to print a page


Press and release OK and CANCEL buttons on the unit and release. This will print a self test report. Check the timing. It should not take more than a minute to print a self test page. If it does, please let me know.

Multiple page print job doesn't finish when paper runs out


This printer should continue to work one paper is added. If not hitting the continue button (Top silver button with an exclamation mark on it) should allow it to resume.

After that can you tell me what the blink sequence is being displayed on the panel?

Bizhub 250 slow to print files


When you ask to print the page are you asking for more the one copy? If you are there is a collate check button next to the requested sets box, in the print dialog box. Make sure its not check. Collating the print means your PC sends a copy of the file for each requested copy. IE: you print one page and ask for six copies, your PC sends the file six times, one copy of the file for each print requested.

Also because your printing from a windows application IE: Excel you should be using the PCL print driver as apposed to a PostScript print driver. The time it takes to convert the file into PostScript for the printer to process it is time consuming.

HP 8150 prints OK for 30 minutes then will not go.


I am certain you need to replace the tray one seperation pad. That will solve your problem.
I could walk you through it if you like. Very easy to do. Sep pad costs around $10 but it can be installed in two minutes. Easy.
