    Ooops I didn't mean to make it sound like the Tech was there the whole 3 days :-).. Two days I was farting with it..It took so long to get the internet connection going..Not realizing the router died.. He came the third day to work on the printer..I'm telling you everything was out of wack..It was almost like someone else from the outside was digging around in the computer.The Tech also couldn't explain why what happened.. I remember the day before doing updates, we also had a storm that night. Anywho..Any idea's..Just recently, I tried the HP driver check.It stated wrong driver..OK I uninstalled what we had and reinstalled another available one from HP..It didn't work at all so went back to what we had.

    Any Idea's?

    (drivers we tried)Hp Laserjet 5si and HP LaserJet 5si mx...Should I try a couple of the others?...OK I blabbed my head..

Check the print processor settings in the advanced tab of the printer properties. This should be set to Winprint, and not anything else.

It sounds as though the storm (power outage) had reset the printer to default settings. Unfortunately, without the LCD working, it will be impossible to give it a new static IP address.

As far as the printer being slow, it sounds as though the print job is being held in que somewhere - or the internal memory of the printer took a "hit" in the storm, and can only "handle" spooling one page at a time.

MY printer stopped working from on day to the next...the problem is when I print out a photo from IPhoto or Preview on my IMac OSX10.4.11 it starts with a large margin which doesn't allow for the complete...


Hello

Large photos are printed differently than regular photos.

Photos that have large resolutions or are best when printed in larger sizes are sometimes printed on multiple pages. Printing the photo on two or more pages requires setting up the printing options so that the printer recognizes how the photo should print and which areas to stop printing on each page.

Open the photo in iphoto

Select "File" and scroll down the list until reaching "Print". Click on "Print" and wait for the printing set up options. Some programs require selecting "Set up" or "Print set up" instead of "Print." Make sure the set up options are brought up according to the program.

Select "Time Imageable Table" or similar options in the program. If there is not an option with a similar title, look over the various titles and any pictures that come with the titles and see if the pictures show multiple pages or only a single page. Click on the options that allow printing one photo on multiple pages.

Select overlap options, which give margins so that connecting the pages forms the picture. Overlap around 1/2 inch or so.

Print the photo. The number of pages should match the set up options selected under the imageable table.

DELL 1720 PRINTER PRINTS VERY SLOWLY.


Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to properties..click print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.

Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it ..lol My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!

Single page email prints multiple pages


Firstly in one PC reload the OS and other necessary softwares and try printing an email. If u get the same results, then check the printing options both on the printer side and the outlook print properties. Hopefully this wont be needed because when you reinstall the OS as a clean install it should print properly....sodeep

Kyocera 3900 dn, is there a way to speed it up?


1.install the latest print driver; see if the rip/spool time is long or the printing time is long. The rip time depends by your computer (!) and the print driver (disable the collate option when printing multiple copies of 1 page = on the printer you should see 1/5 spit a page then 2/5 and spit another page for 5 copies of same page. If you see processing the spit the page then processing and spit the page means your computer is sending 5 times the same page instead of sending once and ask for 5 copies !!! )
2.use network connection instead the USB.
3.expand the printer memory
4.switch the printer from PCL to KPDL or Auto when printing pdf files.

We have XEROX FaxCentre 123.


1. Instead of printing / copying page by page, collate the print...see the options while printing...it will look like 111,222,333 OR 123,123,123 etc.,

2. connect the machine to LAN network by using the LAN module
3. if LAN module is not available, connect a PC to it directly and make it the print controller -> share the printer -> install drivers in other pcs and ..... start printing


have a nice day

bye

I hope my solution was useful

Hi, Make sure the rear cover is closed. 2. Usually when you get misc symbols on the printed page the machine couldn't recognize the print job. I would try printing something from another file and see if the problem occurs.
