How do I set up my product for the fastest printing?
Try the following:
- Make sure your system meets the requirements for your
operating system. If you are printing a high-resolution image, you may need more
than the minimum requirements. If necessary, increase your system's memory.
- If you are using Windows 7,
Devices and Printers window before you print.
- Clear space on your hard
drive or run a defragmentation utility to free up existing space.
- Close any programs you are
not using when you print.
- Make sure the paper type
setting matches the type of paper you loaded.
- Turn on any high-speed settings in your product
- Select a lower print quality
- If your product is connected
to a USB hub, connect it directly to your computer instead.
- If printing becomes slower
after printing continuously for a long time, the product may have automatically
slowed down to protect the print mechanism from overheating or becoming
damaged. Let the product rest with the power on for 30 minutes, then try
Windows: Click the
Maintenance tab, select
Speed & Progress or
Extended Settings, and select the following settings:
High Speed Copies
spool RAW datatype
Page Rendering Mode
Selecting Basic Print Settings - Windows
