Question about HP DeskJet 940c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Deskjet 940C slow to respond to print commands

Hi,

It takes 5 minutes at least before the 940 will print what I send to it. Running from a laptop w/Windows XP, 1.7 ghz processor, big drive, and 1 gb memory. This is new. No viruses, registry is clean, disk does not need defrag. DiskClean has cleaned out a lot of rubbish. Still no better. Laserjet 3200 running off same computer is much faster to respond, but slow to find proper printer in dialog box when I click on HP3200.

Hints, please!

Thanks,

Ted

Printer slow to respond to print command


I had this issue also. Found it to be a firewall issue.

Norton Internet Security, Vista Home Premium.

I ended up having to create a rule to allow inbound TCP from the laptop on port 135. Fixed it.

ps. Be careful setting up such a rule. Several worms make use of exploits on this port. I was very careful only to allow the laptop to loopback to itself.
