How do I set up my product for the fastest printing?

  • If you're printing from your computer, make sure your system meets the requirements. If you're printing a high-resolution image, you need more than the minimum requirements listed. You may also need to:
    • Clear space on your hard drive or run a defragmentation utility.
    • Close programs that you're not using.
    • Increase your system's memory.
    • Use a computer with a high-speed USB 2.0 port.
    For the fastest printing, try these tips:
    • Choose Black/Grayscale in your product settings if your document doesn't include color.
    • For Windows, choose Draft or Text for the Quality Option.
    • If Plain Paper/Bright White paper is selected as the paper type, choose Fast Mode for the print quality.
    • If the product is connected to a USB hub, disconnect unused USB devices.
    • Make sure the paper Type or Media Type setting matches the paper you loaded.
    • For Windows, try adjusting the settings in the Speed & Progress window:
      1. Right-click the product icon in the lower right corner of your screen (taskbar) and select product Settings.
      2. Click the Maintenance tab.
      3. Click the Speed & Progress button.
      4. Selecting one or more of the following settings will increase print speed:
        • High Speed Copies
        • Always spool RAW datatype
        • Page Rendering Mode
        • Print as Bitmap
