Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
If I print a second document, there's about a 5-minute delay. I can print multiple pages, but if I start printing again, there's the delay. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the printer multiple times. If I have to reprint a page, I sit and wait. I'm up to date on Windows XP patches and drivers from Canon. Gateway couldn't figure it out. I suspect it is a Windows, not a Canon, problem. I have no problem with my 4200 hooked up to my work laptop.
Printer delay can mean a few issues. You may be up to date on your windows, but sometimes this can actually be the issue. I would try updating the actual drivers at the canon website for your printer, and check your drivers are functioning properly first by going to start, control panel, main and per, printers, hardware, drivers. Check for error messages. Sometimes you can repair to fix errors if any. Also run antispyware and virus controls to eliminate these too. I had some malicious spyware that wiped my friends driver for her canon pixma clean off her pc!!! Check all printer settings too in case it is accidentally set to pause after first job.
