Q:
Printing is too slow. How can I increase the print speed?
A:
Here are a few suggestions for increasing the printing speed:


Make sure your hard disk has a minimum of 30 - 50MB contiguous space available to spool the data to be printed. Run Scandisk to make sure there are no cross linked files and then run Defrag to see if your harddisk needs to be defragmented.

If MicroWeave is selected, black ink printing is much slower than usual. (Color printing speed is only slightly affected by MicroWeave). Turn off MicroWeave to increase print speed. If you are printing in black ink, select MicroWeave only for presentation quality printing.

Other ways to speed up your printing include turning on High Speed mode, turning off Halftoning, printing in black ink instead of color, and printing at a lower resolution.

Your CPU speed, amount of system memory, application type, document type, and degree of hard disk fragmentation significantly affect printing speed.

Leaving the paper selection lever in the envelope position may also reduce print speed.
